The dealer does make a difference

I am interested in purchasing a 2000 MacGregor 26X. Is one dealer as good as another? I have gotten names and addresses of two dealers but they don’t sell motors. Is that normal? Would I be better off buying from a dealer who gives me the finished product (boat w/motor)? Any recommendations for a dealer in the Kansas City area? Or would it be worth the drive to a dealer who is full service?
First of all, the dealer does make a difference. When you first buy a boat, you’ll most likely have lots of questions. You’ll also want a dealer who takes pride in his/her work and will stand by the quality of the basic product, and whatever dealer preparation you choose to have done. And unless you want to do the installation yourself, it is important that your dealer handles motors.
Having said that, I strongly recommend John Gerber of Super Sport Marine in Kearney, Nebraska (800) 234-3315. He was very helpful at every step of the way and continues to be whenever I have a question or a need. He deals in motors (Hondas and perhaps others). He had no problem delivering the boat to Milwaukee so I wouldn’t expect Kansas City would be any worse. (By the way, where does one sail in Kansas City?)
