Author Topic:   Good source for power in Boston Area

Can anyone recommend a good place in or north of Boston to look at new power?

I have been quoted on a few different packages (Honda, Merc, Yamaha) but everyone is quoting list prices.

Also, I know this has been covered before, but any good internet sources?

Thanks.

gf,

thanks, Hudsons also sells Yamaha but they are quoting list price on both yammies and hondas. I had Sea-tech check out my merc and quote on a new one (also list).

I guess I am looking to find a deal. Do you have personal experince with any of these guys?

newt:

How do you know they are quoting list price? Sea Tech usually has leftover inventory and I have heard their prices are pretty good. The place in Danvers I was thinking of is Portside, not Liberty. They are across from Pope's Landing.

If you will drive a bit, Gilford up in Kittery is a big Yamaha dealer and Owen's Marine up in Hooksett, NH (they used to be in Manchester) is a big dealer for Mercury, Johnson & Evinrude.

J & W in Salem and Cape Ann Marine in Gloucester are Suzuki dealers. Not sure how their pricing is but Jay Irving in Salem IS a nice guy.

gf,

Sea tech doesnt have any leftover inventory right now, if he put a new merc on, he has to order it.

I have been using the prices in this article as a reference for list prices.

I have spoken with J&W Marine, and will again should I take the Suziki option.

Thanks for all the leads everyone, I have been calling around to see what the options are.
