Need some help in Jersey
 
Hey Everyone-
During my exhaustive search for a new boat (X7, 197TT, or 214), I've been scouring websites for "out of the way opportunities". I stumbled on a new broker in Newark NJ. They have a bunch of high end boats for REALLY good prices. Well, one of the photos was of a boat that I recognised from The Team MC forums. I contacted the individual to find out if they had indeed sold their boat, which they had not. He contacted them and was told they just used pics to represent the boat they were brokering. I have spoken with them and I'm more uncomfortable because English is definitely a second language for them. Anyway, if anyone is is the Newark area, can you check out Jardims Marine at 604 Market St in Newark? Google maps seems to show an area that wouldn't be a boat dealer. But they say they're a boat broker and they are new (website date 2013). I'd hate for anyone to get suckered buying a new MC. And personally, I hate someone getting my hopes up on a great deal for my new boat like this.

There is no way I would buy a boat from a dealer that uses lifted pics off the internet to advertise a boat he doesn't have and has too-good-to-be-true prices, not to mention the language issue. Sounds like a 100% SCAM to me, proceed with caution!!!

I just asked a close friend from Morristown NJ and she said she will check but also said if its Newark its probably shady.

I think I have seen two boats listed on Boattrader from this dealer. One was a 2010 197TT for about $26K. Too good to be true at that price IMHO. http://www.boattrader.com/listing/20...-197-102002274

Please don't send a female there......Newark is not a place to explore, trust me.

Sounds like a scam to me.......lots of used car dealers in Newark too. Beware of Newark!

I just looked at the ad for the X15. It sure looks like a scam. It's funny though. You go to the web site and they put some time in to it. It has storage rates and testimonials.

2010 Prostar 197TT with 110 hours for 26K = SCAM! Buyer BEWARE!
