Dear Wayne and Gilligan's Staff,

This spring my sister and I purchased a 2013 MB F24 from your store and could not be happier with the experience we had from your dealership. I had stopped in many times throughout the last 3 years asking Wayne and Rob a ton of questions, researching and comparing boats. Every year at the boat show talking with Reps from MB and support staff. Information was always clear and honest and helped steer us towards an MB Sport purchase.

Wayne helped us sell my 2014 Four Winns boat and my sisters 2008 Yamaha Waverunner through the consignment process in short time, and exceeding my expectations when it came to selling price versus trying to sell on my own. The used boat we chose to purchase, Wayne knew the entire history of the boat through its two previous owners and gave us the peace of mind to make a confident used buy.

Follow up questions regarding the boat operation were answered within minutes while we were on the lake during the weekend through text and phone calls personally from Wayne. When the Bimini top was missing two pieces Wayne found us parts right away and replaced them free of charge. Pretty amazing service for a used purchase. The performance of the 550hp CTS-V powered boat has been a perfect match for our needs of two families sharing a surf boat. We are glad that Wayne advised us away from a lesser powered boat once we told him our families needs. Other boat owners on our lake have been very impressed with our surf wave and overall performance versus their own boats. The simplicity of the MB ballast system and speed control ease of use has turned every operator into a perfect driver. We look forward to every moment in the future we spend with our MB Sport F 24 and all the memories it brings to our family and friends.

Thank you to the entire Gilligan's Team for a great buying experience!!

Man I am so happy with the boat! What a great piece of equipment! Makes such a phenomenal wake, comfort is great, lots of power and perfect in the water! It definitely had some looks, that's for sure! Thank you again!!

Just wanted to thank you for the great service! It was very quick and awesome. Thanks for the help and I look forward to using your dealership for everything going forward (hopefully not too much though lol)!
--- Yours truly, Steven Rue
I would like to say Thank you for having a great receptionist, a friend of mine was having a boat problem and I called and she said that she would get someone to have a quick look at it. If it was a quick fix it would be ok, or if not a appointment could be made. It was brought down there and lo and behold it was just a gas line that was damaged. Thank you for having the staff that care.

Hey Robert, Hope all is well, We purchased the 204LSE with the 5.7liter in it from you, we finally got to put it in the water for the first time this weekend, what a boat, we are very impressed and I am so thankful you talked me into the Captains call exhaust, the boat is perfect i have not stopped smiling since I first turned the key. A couple of questions, the boat makes a whine sound like a super charger when under load is this normal? Also the heater does not blow any heat the hoses to the actual heater under the dash are cold, would there be a air lock in the lines or some other issue?. Thanks again for the great boat and i will be sending you some new customers in the future.

Just wanted to say a HUGE thanks to Rob, Nick T. and the gang at Gilligan's. We had talked for years about upgrading, but until we met Rob we hadn't looked too seriously, mostly due to the fact that we hadn't found someone we felt would offer us sound advice and get us into something that really suited our family's needs. From helping us determine what we needed, to suggesting a service center, finding the right prop, putting financing in place, directing us to a reasonable insurance company and finally getting us the right boat lift, Rob and his staff helped us put our dream on the water. We would definitely recommend their service to anyone. Thanks again Gilligan's.
--- Wayne, Tracy and the boys
Morning Wayne, THANK YOU!! On the way home Naomi and I discussed how good we both felt dealing with you and Rob on this purchase. We really appreciated the openness, friendliness, honesty and your integrity. Dealing with you both for the first time was like we had known you both for years. We had excellent personal service, fair pricing, and received an excellent product that is the absolute envy of my neighbors. The unit is a dream to pull. Had no problems what so ever. Hardly knew it was behind us. Spend much of Saturday evening and Sunday 'playing' with the new toy, reading and learning. I installed a few items such as a compass, fire extinguisher, extra safety chain for the bow when towing, waxing and polishing. Felt sort of like a kid with a new toy. Can't wait to try this boat out, talk about spring fever!! Speaking of toys, let me know when you get your toys in and we'll make a trip to visit. I'll be down to pick up my new 5 blade SS prop when it arrives so maybe we can get together then. Thanks again guys. It was great doing business with you. I will sure make sure that anyone I know or meet will know how well I was treated by Gilligan's Boat Sales and will encourage them to meet with you. Who knows what may happen.

Wayne, I just wanted to let you know how happy I was with my purchase from Gilligans Boats in Airdrie. I've had the boat serviced and winterized by some fellows who know boats and they cant say enough good things about the condition the boat is in. Everyone from you, Nick, and the boys in the shop were very helpful and made things go smoothly in the sales process. Thanks to all of you.
--- Regards Doug Cameron
Dear Rob, Lance and Kirsty, We just wanted to write you to express how much we enjoyed dealing with all three of you in the purchase of our new boat - a 2002 Centurion Elite. In looking for a new boat to purchase, we sought out many dealers and researched many products. The deciding factor for us was to work with a dealer whom we felt most comfortable with, offered excellent products and who provided us with objective information on which we would ultimately make our decision. Gilligan's Boat Sales definitely met these criteria. In summary, it is without hesitation that we would recommend Gilligan's Boat Sales as our preferred boat dealer. Should any of your potential customers wish to contact a reference, we have included our contact information in our closing. Have a great winter and see you in the summer!

Just a quick note of thanks to all the folks at Gilligan's. When we decided to upgrade our existing boat we spent a lot of time checking out dealers and were very happy to find your store. Everyone we talked to was knowledgeable and very comfortable to deal with. Ultimately it was the quality and price of your boats that made the decision for us. We are very happy with our new addition and thank you all for your patience and commitment to getting the right boat for us.
--- Mike and Nicole Orton
Just a note to say that we have no problem giving Gilligan's the thumbs up. You and your knowledgeable staff, including Otto, have made our first adventure in boating a very positive and memorable experience. We have been quite pleased with the condition & performance of our '93 invader. You've been able to answer all our questions and point us in the right direction when it comes to general up keep & maintenance. Thanks again,
--- Tim & Caryn Allen
