2018 is done!
I say “done” in a very tongue and cheek kind of way. It was a bittersweet year to be honest, we boomed in used boat sales to be sure and were on record pace with new pontoons and suddenly due to the “trade war” between ourselves and our neighbors to the south Canada put a retaliatory 10% tariff on every boat coming into the country after July 1st. That meant while you were all out enjoying Canada Day our staff were racing back and forth to the border to get as many new pontoons into the country as possible before it’s implementation. When everyone got home from that long weekend our entire stock of new pontoons was gobbled up in days. Kudos to those informed buyers!
The end result? Even although a new trade agreement has been reached these tariffs have yet (at the time of this writing, November 13/2018) to be rescinded. Out of respect for our may customers and prospective customers we have not restocked with any of these higher priced pontoons but there is good news. Given the tariffs are to come off early in the New Year we will work with you to spec out the right pontoon for your needs AND we will GUARANTEE you a tremendous “non tariff” price and Spring delivery. We can do this for you RIGHT NOW so there is no need to shop other dealers saddled with overtaxed inventory and limited to what they have left, shop with us to get exactly what you want and save!
So, we seem to be doing something right these last 15 years or so. I’d like to think our success comes from assisting others in their success. I don’t mean to sound too “preachy” here, and Lord knows I’m not perfect myself, but it’s always been my belief we can always achieve more when we help others attain their goals. This last year especially I have seen more diversity in the folks coming through our door or buying from us from across western Canada than at any time before. The common thread that binds them is not their ethnicity, language, color or lifestyle. No, their shared interest is to simply enjoy some time away to pursue what we all cherish, which is to be with those we care about and sharing that time together. The thousands of customers we’ve served (and yes, I can now say thousands) would all agree there is no place like being on the water to do just that.
With that in mind, please peruse the following pages and see if there isn’t some craft on there that you could imagine yourself enjoying. After doing so I invite you to call myself personally at 204-781-2277
To our new pontoon buyers, I am making a pretty bold promise. IF you find a lower (written) price offer ANYWHERE ON THE CONTINENT on the same boat that I cannot better I will donate $500 to the charity of your choice, and in your name. I’ve made this offer in the past and I’m still waiting to make that first donation……
We can offer delivery right across the prairies and again, offer you finance plans on our new pontoons! (with your good credit rating of course) So you see, there really is no reason to hesitate. Make your visions of peaceful Summer days on the water a reality. Make it affordable. Make the call!!
Finally, I’d like to wish all of you out there the Merriest of Christmases, Happiest of holidays, and that 2019 brings with it not only success for you and yours but a renewed faith and optimism for a much more friendly and much less divisive planet. Can’t be done you say? Start with your own little circle and lead by example, enthusiasm is wildly contagious!
It bears repeating;
For any of you that don’t know (and it’s probably the world’s worst kept secret) our most luxurious pontoons are built by one of North America’s most established and trusted builders. We simply “house brand” them at the request of other dealers who do not like our volume driven discount pricing.
They say quality is priceless but every now and then you can find that quality simply “priced-less!”
