I am in the market for a 22-24 bay boat at a low/mid range price point, so looking at tidewater, sea born, nauticstar, etc... I can't see paying 30k+ for a used boat out of warranty when decent boats exist with a brand new engine etc... plus need jump seats too. I mentioned tidewater boats as I love the layout, finish, price point, but the customer service I have heard from one owner is horrendous. Has any one else had this experience? Or was my friend and his boat just an exception? Thx all!
