Letters and Testimonials
Let me go on record as saying that both you and Stan were absolutely wonderful and most helpful during our interface at the Knoxville boat show. You both went above and beyond in our opinion and you all are the primary reason that we chose Premier and our particular boat. Your willingness to go "the extra mile" cannot be overstated. Rarely does a consumer receive such attention ! If the boat is half the quality that we received from you, we made a great deal indeed.
Let me add that the follow-thru has also been above our expectations ! All of our questions, regardless of how trivial have been answered and promptly so. I’m sure we will enjoy this product for years to come and we should be great advocates for your product and service.
Please pass this along to the executives at Premier, as this level of service should receive notice !
To the Owner Bob,
I just placed a special order for 231 Alante from Winnisquam Marine in NH. The owner Ryan has been GREAT !!! to deal with, he has been very patient with my questions & has guided me through the process as I placed my order with him. I like your video & your explaination of how well constructed your Pontoon Boats are. I have owned Boats for over 40 years & impressed with your construction & design. I am ordering the Alante with a hard top roof & I will be the first on my Lake with a Premier Pontoon Boat as well as a Hard Top. As the owner of the company I thought you should be aware of the excellent service Ryan Crawford of Winnisquam has affored me.
To the people at Premier Marine,
Last summer we had the opportunity to sell our 86 Glastron outboard (which we purchased new) to a family from Chicago who have a home not far from our lake home in Central Minnesota. That evening we were without a boat, motor, trailer, and boatlift. Our quest for a pontoon began that very week. We have been storing information on pontoons in our heads over the years from boat shows and seeing the various crafts that our friends have on our lake. This spring we became very serious. I started to visit every boat dealer in the Twin Cities and in the Brainerd area. Being retired, part of me said that this was not a good time to be spending a considerable chunk of my retirement on something that would only provide pure pleasure - the other part of me said that life is to be lived to the fullest and it was time to indulge. After considerable research, I decided to go back to where I bought the Glastron 23 years ago - to Hallberg Marine just north of the Twin Cities in Wyoming, MN.
As you can tell from the 23 years between boats, I am not one to make impulsive decisions. I knew from my first trip there that Premier was going to be my choice of pontoon. My wife made the trip with me a few days later and she does make quick decisions. Randy showed us a 225 Grand Majestic Limited and we were done looking. My wife sat on the Flexsteel seats, felt the Berber carpeting, the Ebony accent color, the popup changing room, the J clip cover - and the deal was done.
Since this pontoon has a great playpen cover which is so easy to set up and take down, I decided to have Hallberg install the Sea Legs on our new craft and forgo buying a lift. I cannot tell you how excited all of us are about this summer and the added joys that this luxurious pontoon will bring to our family and friends.
To the people at Premier Marine,
I just ordered a 09 Sunspree 240 with the PTX package from Arrington Marine in Greenville Texas. Bob and Barbara Arrington who own the dealership have been great and very helpful. I just wanted you to know how impressed I am with the quality of Premier. Your website is the best in the industry and very informative. In 2007 I bought a Bentley 240 Cruise and it was junk after two years. This time I did my homework and talked to other owners of Premiers and everyone I talked to loved their Premier Pontoon. Thanks for building the best in the business. I look forward to enjoying my Premier when it arrives for many years to come!
I just wanted to let you know that my Dad and I just bought our custom ordered 235 Escapade, and we are extremely pleased with the quality, style, and comfort of the boat. Since we knew we were going to spend a lot of time on this boat on Lake Superior, we went all the way. We got features like the PTX with a I/0 5.0 Volvo Penta V-8 (which really pushes the boat nicely up to 40mph and when you get your self into 6 foot waves) the Raised Imperial helm with the sink, and fridge, the imperial galley, day enclosure, double bimini, pump out head, swim platform, and black powder coated rails. And we wouldn’t change anything about our boat. We named her Transcendence, and everybody at the marina (including us) is completely amazed at the quality, and performance of the vessel. Are family and friends have great times together on the vessel and we plan to have many more fun times on our boat.
I wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for sending the spare meterial to patch my convertible top on my Premier pontoon after the mice damaged it in my hoist this summer. Not only was it very kind of you to send such a generous amount of material, but to also return my personal check in addition was a very pleasant surprise. When I was pontoon shopping at Spicers, my salesman Jack Sussex told me that Premier’s aim was to produce the finest pontoon in America. With the quality of the boat I purchased and the world class service you have provided me on this unusual request, I would say you are well on your way to achieving your goal to be the very best in America.
My name is Gary and I recently traveled to Kalispell, Montana to look at one of your pontoon boats at Captain’s Marine. We live in north central Washington State, so it was about a 430 mile trip. I had looked at about 15 boats via the internet, brochures, and a few visits to local boat stores, and a boat show. We were a little concerned about boat from a dealer so far away. Your brochure, DVD, JD Powers info, and my conversations with Randall Seyfert at Captain’s convinced us we should take the time to see your boat before making the final decision. We made an appointment with Randall and we spent about 4 hours with him in his store. He was very personable and he answered all our questions and gave us his undivided attention. After spending time with Randall and looking at the Premier boats in his shop we decided to buy. We put a down payment on an Explorer 201. We were to take delivery in April. The combination of your high quality boat and the help and information we received from Randall made this an easy decision. We are looking forward to spending time on our new boat.
In August Lynn and I made the decision to purchase a pontoon for our lake home and for the convenience of 5 grandchildren. Our first visit was to Dan’s Southside Marine in Bloomington, MN. Brian Larson spent about an hour explaining the benefits of Premier and went so far as to compare it to the Mercedes of Pontoons. We spent the remaining 7 months comparing the Premier to Bennington, Sun Tracker, Weiress, Tuscany and Palm Beach finally deciding that Brian was right. The Premier was in fact the Mercedes of the line and no other brand had the construction and features offered with the Premier SunSation. We picked our pontoon up from Dan’s on April 23rd and have felt like Mr. and Mrs. Gotrock’s ever since. The furniture feels like home and is very comfortable. The carpet cleans easily and the J clip cover (which really sold us) compared to our old snap cover keeps peace between Lynn and I. We are looking forward to many enjoyable summers with our new pontoon and just wanted to compliment your company on a very excellent product. Premier is the best, The Mercedes as Brian put it.
I just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased we are with our Grand Majestic PTX pontoon we purchased from Denise at Hallberg Marine in the summer of 2005. This is our third season on the boat and it still looks like new and we have not required any repairs! I have been around boats and pontoons for over 40 years and never have I encountered such a mastery of innovation, engineering, craftsmanship and quality workmanship. We have used our boat on some very big water, and I still find hard to believe how well it cuts the big wakes of other boats like a hot knife through butter. Our friends are amazed how quickly the vessel comes on plane, it’s effortless maneuverability while pulling skiers or tubers as well as the comfort and luxury of the appointments including helm, instruments, changing room, live wells and furniture.
This is our second Premier pontoon, our first which we sold to our good friends after 8 years of use. That boat still looks new and I am confident our friends will have many more years of use thanks to the quality materials and workmanship you have ben putting into your boats for so many years. I would recommend a Premier pontoon to anyone who desires a quality boat that will deliver years of trouble free enjoyment combined with the superior quality only found in a Premier product!
I normally don’t take the time to do such things as write manufacturers about their products unless I have a problem. I in fact have no problem at all with our new 2007 Grand Majestic 250 PTX. I’d like to take the time to comment on what a wonderful Pontoon we have purchased and the fantastic service from our dealer.
Our search for our second boat began about a year after we moved to our River House in eastern Alabama. Realizing our small runabout was in fact, too small. I began to scour the Internet for info on Pontoons.
Never having owned a pontoon before, I began on the ground floor as far as experience goes with this type of boat. Trying to compensate for that resulting in nearly a 6 month review of all the magazine and Internet literature I could find. Your web site was the first indication that Premier was not just another Pontoon manufacturer. Its slick interface, copious info, and well done videos showcased your outstanding product to such a degree, I found that I new just as much (if not just a tad more than the dealer) about your product. After weeks of research, my wife and I decided to limit our dealer visits to 6 vendors, Premier, South bay, Bennington, Aloha, Crest and Starcraft.
Due to availability and dealer location to our lake. Despite Skier’s Marine in Westover, Alabama not actually being on our lake, Our Salesman Jim Schultz, and Skier’s Marine’s Owner Rhett Tyler by far outperformed all of the local competition. They were patient, knowledgeable, and very courteous. Jim took us out on a test drive and bent over backwards to accommodate us. Even to the point of bringing our new boat to our house, picking up our trade-in, and performing the closing for our new boat in our home. How’s about that for service? The following week, Rhett Tyler the owner of Skier’s Marine, came out personally to change out the outboard prop to one of my choosing, to my complete astonishment. In his own words, "If that’s what it takes to make you happy, I’ll be glad to change out that prop for you." All that, plus a very fair price on our boat, and a boat that performs like no other pontoon we tested. Superb fit and finish that clearly out shown the competition, and fantastic performance in our boat make me a very happy customer indeed. You have a fan for life in Premier Pontoons and Skier’s Marine.
