We bought our 2012 X45 from Dockside Marine. They gave us a way better deal than the dealer that is in the state (not the greatest reputation) and the one in Miami. You guys in texas are lucky to have great boat dealers and multiple ones at that.

Not happy... TSR from what I hear is leasing the dealership space to the BU guys in North Austin. My bets are this.... TSR buys out the BU dealership after they mismanage it and piss everyone off like they have done in the past (BU guys). Then TSR buys them out and has a north and south dealership of their own. Won't matter if it's BU or another boat company.

If that's true -- I wonder why MasterCraft would drop TSR? It's a great location -- close to Austin and New Braunfels where there are several ski lakes in the area.... TSR had outstanding customer service and appeared to sale alot of boats....

The rumor is that they wanted to shop around for other boats... Mastercraft got wind of it and got rid of them. No doubt it's a great location, but they did have a change in management. The new management has been an interesting change for TSR IMHO. In the last 6-8 months the boats on the show room floor have looked terrible. Mud on the inside of them, not wiped down at all.... I think it's a change in attitude there.

Either way I will miss MC at that location but Boat Town is alot closer to me.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Well, I confirmed that rumor last week when I took my MC in for a new drive dampner. I asked some questions and this is the story I got from one of the service reps.

In a nutshell, Mastecraft was not supplying TSR with enough boats, and had virtually none left to sell for the model year. As a result, TSR went looking to add another line of boats to sell. When Mastercraft found out, they dropped TSR completely, and are only allowing them to do warranty service for only 1 year. TSR is still trying get Mastercraft to let them honor the full 3 year warranties on all the new boats they have sold, which as far as I know, has not been resolved yet. From a business standpoint, I understand why TSR did what they did. Personally, I think Mastercraft is who lost out here.

Luckily, Malibu uses Indmar engines, same as Mastercraft used up till a couple of years ago, so service on any Mastercraft will basically be business as usual. I'll continue to take my boat there...at least while Josh is still there.
