A new Lund 1900 Tyee owner 7/15/2013
A great day on Lake Champlain yesterday. The boat ran like a top. We
did a nice approx 30 mile break-in cruise. The big yachts were out so I got to
test the boat in some big wake waves. Handles the largest of waves effortlessly
and is completely stable. It's hard to even feel side roll even when I
intentionally drove into the waves parallel to see how it would handle a rogue
Launch and load on the trailer was effortless (except its a good
thing you told me the leave the motor running story - you can't hear the motor
idling at all after a day on the lake). So I made sure to turn it off before
pulling the boat out...
All was perfect except a small hydraulic leak
under the steering wheel when I sped up the boat once. It looked like an
overflow release. It stopped when I slowed down and never dripped again. Maybe a
little too much fluid in the system??
Thanks again for building a great
boat package. It is perfect for Lake Champlain. The boat must look pretty
impressive under power. We were getting stares from everyone on the water, even
the million dollar yacht people were checking out the boat.

RE: Jim Bell, Bob and Randy
I am really pleased to order another boat from Seager Marine. I have owned 7 Nautiques and one MasterCraft over the years. This 230 Nautique is the first brand new one, from scratch. It will be fun.
I wanted you to know how much I love working with Jim Bell. He is wonderful. You can really trust Jim. Is there anything more important.
And even more so, I love Randy and Bob in service. Those guys are top notch and one of the main reasons we love Seager Marine. Being down in Skaneateles has it's challenges when it comes to small service items.Randy has helped me diagnose and fix a few issues over the phone-thus saving me a trip to Canandaigua. This has made a world of difference to me. It saved me days and days on the water. And in July, each day is worth a million to me.
I will always do business with you all !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
From Anne & Pat Williams
Preston, Marsh and Crew
Anne and I are enjoying our new Avalon pontoon boat immensley! Your installation crew should know that everything is perfect.
It was a pleasure doing business with you and we will surely tell our friends about our most enjoyable experience.
Thank you so much-
From Bob and Darlene Brule
We want to thank you and your staff for a very positive experience with our new boat and hoist purchase. Furthermore, we continue to be pleased with the service provided after the sale. Your staff is always courteous, friendly and very helpful. We feel comfortable calling or stopping by if there is an issue and/or simply have a question. We know that we made the right decision in choosing Seager Marine. "
From Bruce and Gerri Watson
" Dear Marsh:
We want to thank you for all the time and kindness shown to us during the recent purchase of our Hydrodyne boat. We have had the boat out a couple times and are only sorry that summer is at an end. We are already looking forward to waterskiing and enjoying it next summer. Our son and family will be coming for a week in July, so it will be a great boat for our oldest grandchildren to learn to ski behind, and have fun tubing behind it.
Being a business owner myself, it was so nice to see a "working owner". It shows that you care about the satisfaction of your customer, whether the customer is from the Canandaigua area or from a distance away. Most businesses wouldn't spend a lot of time with you, thinking that since this customer lives so far away, he would not be a regular repeat customer.
The honest, integrity and professional manner in which you handled our sale made it a real pleasure to do business with you. Never once did we doubt what you were telling us about the boat. You always kept us informed of the progress of the sale and the work we requested to be done. If you ever need an endorsement for Seager Marine, we would be happy to highly recommend doing business with your firm.
Our best to you for the continued success of Seager Marine, Inc. You are an asset to the Canandaigua area. "
From Betty and Dan Palmeri
" Last Sunday we had a problem with our boat and it was taken care of immediately thanks to Artie and Crew! We really appreciate the service we get from Seager Marine! Thanks Again! "
From Jason Briggs
" I would like to recognize Seager Marine for its committment to its customers. Thank you for making my first boat-buying experience a good one...I would especially like to thank Jim Bell for his constant interaction and status reports as things happened. Seager Marine made me feel like I was their number one customer. Thanks again Marsh and Jim on a job well done! Now if you will excuse me I have a beautiful Nautique that is just dying for some attention. "
From Don Maugiri
"I have bought 2 other boats prior to buying my Lund Rebel and working with Maggie and Art was the best buying experience I have ever had, they did an outstanding job of addressing every concern and question I had. Your maintenance team did a great job of doll up and prepping my boat (engine swap!). I am 110 percent satisfied an your team has earned a return customer over and over again."
" Just bought a boat from Seager Marine and dealt with a guy named Preston. Not many people in sales who actually care about the customer but he was great. Not only did he take us out on our maiden voyage but he went above and beyond in making sure that everything was ok. We had a minor issue with the used boat and he got it fixed and even took the boat out alone to make sure that it was repaired correctly. Thumbs up for a salesperson who sees customer satisfaction over dollar signs. "
From Laun Llewellyn
" It is easy to see and understand why you have been successful in business for many years. Starting with my initial call to Chuck Smith today, you all have been extremely helpful, very professional, honest, and easy to work with, all resulting in making this a very enjoyable purchase and transaction. I appreciate the patience and the many telephone calls between us...With your cooperation and my excitement towards this boat, I am very much looking forward to next spring. I am in the process of ordering the needed parts for my boatlift, and looking for someone to make a top for my boat. I have been to the Ski Nautique dealer here in Orlando and we are planning a plant tour. And we have ordered a few Ski Nautique t-shirts (etc.) We are excited, and again, thank you and your staff for all you did to make this 'fun' and successful. "
From Tom Dow
"Jim-Thank you for taking the kids out to learn how to wakeboard. They were skiing like pros by the end of the week. Your patience and great attitude are a great asset."
From Andy Vaughan
"My dealer, Seager Marine in Canandaigua, NY, has been VERY responsive and has made the overall experience of owning this boat very positive. I will continue to recommend them to others."
From Dan George
Yes we have the title. I'm assuming the registration and stickers are to follow since we have the temp. I will send you a hard copy to this effect but I have to tell you the young Mr. Pat Denis is wise beyond his years. A great attribute to the Seager Marine team. He was very knowledgeable an an absolute pleasure to deal with. Makes an old man feel good to know there are a few young people that will continue to make this world what it is today.
