    My parents live in mohave valley and have been storing pontoon since pops got cancer 3-4 years ago. Cant keep paying storage fees. They were wondering what you guys knew about boat broker and maxed out marine for trying to have sell for them? I also posted in boat classifieds. 2004 crestliner 24' with new interior and tuned up this month. Thanks

    Sorry about your dad. Been there.

    Aside from being a sponsor here, guys have been all smiles dealing with Maxed out. Both on buying and selling. I can't give you first hand info, but hopefully one of the recent patrons of one of the brokers can join in here.

    We had no luck with Boat Brokers selling our 40' fifth wheel. Left it there over a year. Found there was a lot of Boat Broker owned equipment also for sale on their lot. Brought it back to our house in LHC and in 2 months had it sold for our asking price. Very sorry to hear about your Dad.

    Maxed out or Outdrive1.... sold more boats for me than I can count. Boat Broker, we’ve been driving by that place and seen the same boats rotting in the sun for years.

    Contact Outdrive1 here on RDP. He has lots of connections in Havasu and Parker. He could probably move that 24' in Parker pretty fast.

    Maxed Out Marine is a reputable boat consignment company in Havasu that does a a great job! I know people that will only use them.

    Thanks he's doing better now but the cancer definately took a toll on him physicaly and money wise. And i just restored his jet boat so they can still boat. The toon is too much for the two of them.

    You priced it right it will sell. You can take it to Cactus RV Center and marine. They sell more pontoons than anyone on the West coast. They have a lot of foot traffic and good financing available for customers.

    Is there a “CarMax” for boats? I had a 2015 Jerp Grand Cherokee 4x4. I sold it to them at a 30% discount from high retail. I was in the same position. It would have sat in the garage for 3 years, with little use, or I could dump it. In the long run, I made out. :)

    I have bought and sold a. Purple of boats with Preston @ Horizon. First class is an understatement!

    I have known Ricky since I moved to Havasu and sent 100’s of people through their with excellent results.

    For a straight up consignment shop they would be my first two calls.

    Paul has recently gone out on his own marketing boats for people. I have known Paul for 12+ years. He’s like family and I know that he would do his best to make sure a customer satisfied.

    For myself it would depend on what it was for who I’d use.. but I am very close to all three personally.

    For anyone else I’d recommend calling them and discussing what you are looking for and seeing which one can service your needs best.

    I am with RD on this. I have done business with all 3, and although all 3 are a bit different, they are all as honest as you’ll ever find in the boat sales world! I have a boat (sale pending) listed with OD1 right now, I live 1200+ miles away, and worry exactly ZERO about my junk being in his care!

    That all said, I think where you have your boat listed price wise is in a pretty active market! I can’t imagine it sits for too long!

    Horizon Motorsports. No question.

    My only thread on RDP was how great it was dealing with Preston.
