That or English isn't his first language. Either way, this is just an odd way to go about this. Seems more like a first time boat buyer going after the guy that sold him a 20 year old bayliner versus a 3/4 million dollar purchase from a reputable dealer and top tier builder. I don't know, maybe I'm not up with the times, but at that level of disposable income it would seem that lawyer before social media would be the procedure...not the other way around.

My thoughts exactly. With that kind of coin to drop on a boat you’d think he’d have an army of lawyers pounding on Jupiter’s door.

Lawyers will cost a third of the boats value, and social media is free.

I'm becoming more and more convinced people are getting 30 year loans on these things or running them as a business. I said something similar in a thread about the contender and got push back. People with money don't behave this way in my limited experience.

^^^ this & who's to say the lawyers aren't next. Based on the images and age of the hull I can't see any Judge siding with the Manufacturer unless he hit something.

I've seen it, but only because someone sent it to me, on purpose.

People who inherited their wealth sometimes do. People raised in a bratty manner always getting their way, etc....

People earning that money tend to be too busy earning to handle this themselves and defer to an attorney.

I've had to handle a similar situation with a car before, attorney didn't want a commission. It was not that expensive when it is clear cut. (The lawyer quickly jumped up and took 33% when I won off a letter) But you really have to have a pattern, I doubt you will find that here. In my case the asshole had been doing it over and over. I would certainly have a lawyer send a nasty gram and make it look like I was going to sue to get them to the table, if they call the bluff you are a couple K down the hole.

As a lawyer and a multi time new boat purchaser, I agree that something odd is going on here. Now EVERY new boat will have a punch list of issues on delivery, including some that really are inexcusable given the quality control that should be in place at any decent manufacturer. But they still occur on every new boat, and a new purchaser has to expect this. Sure, it's nice if the dealer checks out the boat in advance and catches most of the items, but that often doesn't happen. So you have to expect some glitches. But these photos don't show some minor glitches. They show some major structural problems that the manufacturer and dealer need to immediately address. Now who knows what the interactions between the buyer, the dealer, and Jupiter have actually been so far? But the bottom line is that boat surely looks to have some serious problems that must be fixed in the factory. The buyer needs to have his own surveyor (he seems to have one) and a lawyer to protect his substantial interest. One would expect Jupiter to do what it needs to do to rectify the situation. Although the photos look bad, maybe the repairs can be made to make the boat as good as new. The buyer is entitled to a top quality brand new boat -- nothing less. If it can't be, he's entitled to a refund. Simple as that. This buyer is not a whiner. Anyone dropping $750k would be going nuts if his boat showed these signs of damage in less than 50 hours. Good luck fella.

I wonder who Dident is. I'll bet he could get to the bottom of this.

Jupiter Marine responded to the guy an hour ago, now that it's out and that he has their attention if he was smart he would work out a deal or it's only going to get worse for both of them but better for us if they don't.

That response is a form letter that they repeatedly post. Probably not the best marketing practice.
