SkipperBud's has partnered with Sea Ray Boats to offer DOUBLE INCENTIVES on the SLX 310. Take $10,000 off the purchase price with this program through February 29, 2020.*

The SLX 310 demand's everyone's full attention. And by everyone, we mean not only the abundance of people who can lounge comfortably on board, but also the passerby whose heads will turn at the iconic styling and elegant hull sculpting. And expansive cockpit social area, an aft-facing lounger that converts to a sunpad, and a standard wet bar, make relaxation and on board entertaining a given. Underway, the delight of good company, merges with the thrill of precision performance, as the SLX's available twin MerCruiser engines and innvoative Quiet Ride hull, featuring Tuned Transom, combines forces beautifully.

Also available in outboard propulsion! Click to view SLX 310 models in-stock and ready for spring delivery: https://loom.ly/wJTTLiQ

*Incentives available only on in-stock boats.

They can’t, unless they hire all new staff, service managers are ignorant and don’t know how to talk to people, watched a person move my new boat from my pier and scratched the side of it and the manager said “ oh well your gonna do it one day” it had 7 hours on it! They absolutely don’t care about anyone they hide behind emails and won’t return phone calls, they had my girlfriend sue in tears twice because of the things they said and how long it takes to fix your boat , all they say is “ we are doing the best we can” and if causing more damage to a boat is the best they can do , they have a serious problem, all I read is how it’s such a family oriented place the how the owners are so involved and still help out with problems but whenever you want to reach out to higher management because they are horrible your just told to go back and deal with the same manager, they pass you on to the next person, skipper buds is a joke!!!!!!!
See you at the show!
This place sucks and the censor posts.
This is an ongoing issue. It doesn't change and nobody at this Marina gives a damn. You can dock elsewhere, save money and have piece of mind. This place blows, and it blows even more given the price we've paid to be here. Clearly, if you're not connected here, you will be ripped off. God forbid you take a stand.... then your dock lines get cut. You can do better folks. From: Richard Deddo Sent: Monday, August 27, 2018 7:52 PM To: Jody M. Hart Subject: Re: Marina Gates Exactly. Don’t respond; the skipper buds way. You can bet I’ll be hitting social media and everywhere else to spread the word. I’m not the only one with these complaints. We all talk at the marina. You people are ridiculous. Sent from my iPhone On Aug 27, 2018, at 9:14 AM, Richard Deddo wrote: It doesn’t really help that your employees let in whomever they want on a regular basis. Pretty sure you grounds keeper (I think that’s who it is) lets in whoever they want, including gangbanger punks. I’ve confronted them personally when they made obscene gestures toward my wife while the kids were in the car. After the fact, my dock line was cut. I called and reported it and you people didn’t even return my call. Obviously they knew where my slip was. You have people who throw parties with 25 people or more and over run the pool and I had someone pretty much trying to break the door down to the bathroom while my son and I were in there last weekend. Guess why? They didn’t have a key and pretty much pushed past us when we left. What you need is 24 hour surveillance and someone onsite and actively regulating the marina. Also, you should issue ID cards. You have an operational problem at your marina, specifically on Sunday. Sent from my iPhone On Aug 27, 2018, at 8:40 AM, Jody M.

Hello! From your friends Spectrum Color
Bought a pontoon, No problems!
#SkipperBuds meet #SkipperZeus Loving the #GreatOutdoors when we #GoBoating
So I just got my 2017 Scarab 255 Impulse back from a 7 month ordeal at Skipper Bud's (Sequoit Harbor) in Antioch IL. They promised me that all things are corrected, just check out this dash board, blinking ON/OFF randomly. And after the 1st trial run this holiday weekend, here is the list of items which were either not addressed properly or which just happened on day 1 of the 2018 season. NEVER EVER buy a boat or have a boat serviced at this dealership, they are the absolute worst dealer ever! And the Scarab Quality level is also terrible considering all the work I had done last winter to try and combat some of these issues. 1. The new insert panels for the wake tower arch are yellow not green. 2. The port motor still varies RPM as compared to the starboard motor. 3. The starboard motor RPM is now also unstable much like the port motor. 4. At full throttle there is a 1000 RPM difference in the two motors with synchronization active. 5. The decorative throttle plate broke loose on the throttle lever. 6. There is still water entering the ski locker, one video shows the water coming in through the front floor compartment. It only shows small a squirt, but there were huge squirts and everything in that compartment got soaked again. 7. The dash blinks on and off randomly, see the video. 8. The music presets still do not display on the dash board. They work, but no channel info is displayed. 9. No music can be streamed from the port side USB port. This worked fine last summer, now it doesn’t work at all from either the port side USB port or the under dash USB port.
Not sure what to do with our pontoon. We don't have a trailer to move it out of the marina.......
