Experiences with Aqua Marine in New Orleans?

Reply
I am interested in hearing about the experience(s) people have had with buying boats from Aqua Marine in New Orleans... from purchase to ongoing maintenance and so on.

I plan to buy a boat soon and am considering them as the dealer, but wanted to verify first.

Thanks for any feedback!

I bought a new Century bay boat from them in 2002. Nice folks. At the time it was a father and son operation and I dealt mostly with the son. I got the boat that I wanted and not a boat that they wanted to sell me. They were really great on the price of adding the accessories. ( trolling motor, batteries, stereo, etc...) My only complaint, if you want to call it a complaint is when I brought it back in for the scheduled maintenance check up, it took a little longer than I would have liked. The shop is down the street from the showroom and I think they only had one mechanic doing work. Other than that, I had a good experience dealing with them.

I bought a boat from them in 2014. Family owned and operated business, great people. I would absolutely recommend them.

I recommend Southern Outdoors in Thibodaux. I bought a 17.56 cc G3 flat boat from them - new. Long story short had issue with hull with electrolysis. Called ONE time, S.Outdoors took the ball and ran with it. Two months later I had a brand new boat and trailer not one question asked. Side note i believe Yamaha owns G3 boats now and i am sure they were not going to let a piece of tin give them a bad name. Needless to say my issue was made whole and i would buy from them again and again.
