Default Aegis Boats

Has anyone actually ever received anything from this company? I know that they are starting new with the McKee craft molds. However, i've left voice mail, emails and to date, received a single call back which promised me i would receive pricing. Since then I've called and emailed and zippo.!

Other than them building a web site at a snails pace....Is there anyone there !!!!

i saw them at the ft lauderdale boat show and talked to the representative, he said that they aren't going to have any dealers so you just buy through the company which seems kind of odd and like there PR(personal relationships) will be lacking...

Factory direct. Great idea when executed properly. I will be meeting Hunt at the show in Miami on Friday

Quite a few companies are successfully selling direct these days. If they make a boat that's equivalent to the original McKee, they could certainly build a brand based on the boat alone.

They might consider partnering with some dealers to provide local warranty service however. It would be a challenge towing the boat to the factory every time you needed warranty work.

MHM Marine is who is building them. They also build Chaos boats (the chaos 16 is my absolute favorite small boat). They are definitely a high-end type custom manufacturer, so don't expect large volumes.

Go on facebook and search for MHM Marine. You'll get lots of updates there. They just posted a bunch of pics of the boats that are going to Miami and frequently answer questions on there.
