NEWS YOU CAN USE
March 15, 2020
As many of you know, there was a change in management of Antique Boat Center several months ago. The progress of making changes and getting the business back on its feet and operating properly has been a long and arduous journey. There were many hurdles to overcome and hopefully we are closing in on working through them. To those customers with whom we have had direct contact, we hope that we have been able to demonstrate the changes that we are trying to make and that you are pleased with what you are seeing. We continue to make progress, sometimes too slow, but progress nonetheless.
In the past, Antique Boat has been involved in the process of selling boats. The impression of new management was that this function was given short shrift and never the attention it was due and therefore you the customer suffered. We are announcing a change in that process. Jim Barach, who was involved in selling boats and service work several years ago with Antique Boat Center has decided to get back into that business. He has established a new company, Vintage Bros. Boat Sales to under take this effort and be a broker for anyone interested in selling or buying a boat. A new website has been setup to better support this function. We all know that the website that currently exists has many shortcomings, so this change is welcome. In the not too distant future, the existing sales website will be shut down (antiqueboat.com will remain) and any current listings will have to be transferred over to the new site. In order to do that a new listing agreement and photos will have to be executed. Anyone interested should contact Jim directly.
Those of you who may have active listings with boats for sale should look forward to hearing from Jim in the near future. His points of contact are as follows:
Phone: 513 678 9379
If anyone has any questions at all about this process, please do not hesitate to call us at the number listed below.
Jim will be working very closely with Antique Boat Center and you will see many tie-ins back and forth between his company and ours as we move forward. Antique Boat will continue to serve any needs related to restoration and service with an increased focus on doing things right and taking care of you the customer. If you have any interest or are in need of some restoration or service work on an existing or new boat we would certainly appreciate the opportunity to talk to you about this work. If you have experience with us that made you unhappy, particularly as it may have involved previous management, we encourage you to give us another shot. Based on the feedback we are getting from other customers, we think you will be pleasantly surprised.
