Testimonials From Boaters

Real stories from boaters like you.

"My wife and I began looking for a used  pontoon boat last year. We were looking for a smaller boat (16' ideally) and just couldn't find one.  Once we decided to buy new I spoke with several manufacturers. The prices were all in within a similar range, but what we particularly liked about Legend was that there were some items that were optional on other manufacturer's boats that were standard on our Legend (or part of a package that was being included) eg. vinyl floor (vs carpet) which we are so grateful we got and the boat we wanted was in stock available for immediate delivery.

We bought the entry level boat (16' Splash) but it doesn't feel entry level.  It drives very easily and comfortably. The real test was what our 3 boys thought (all in their 20's) and they also love it.  It's also a great fishing boat. Thanks again for a very positive experience. We look forward to many years of enjoyment on this boat."

"Here I am with my new boat. I got my insurance all settled away and have the paper work complete and paid.  Thank you for all your help. I filled out a survey they sent me but not sure if I got it sent properly. Chris that delivered the boat was very good.  He gave my son and I a lot of helpful hints.  Could you show the owner the picture.  I think he is the owner , the fellow with all the hockey pictures in his office. Once again thank you for all your help and patience."

"Here is a picture of my son, making good use of our Legend boat.

That is a 10lb Pickerel.

"We just wanted to let you know that we had a fantastic 1st weekend with our new boat! We put in about 4 1/2 hours this weekend and our daughter even caught the first fish of the season. Please let Chris know that he taught us well as everything went smoothly and we are feeling much more comfortable with it. We are looking forward to many more hours on it as a family. We included a couple of pics for you, as you can see John had a lot of fun driving it!

Thanks to you and Chris for getting us all set up,
Catherine and John La Chapelle"

"Just wanted to thank you for your time and efforts at the Sportsman show. You and your staff did a wonderful job and made me feel extremely confident when buying a Legend boat. I really feel you went above and beyond by answering my every question (and there were many) and just thought I'd put in writing my appreciation for your time and commitment towards customer satisfaction. I am attaching a photo of myself aboard the Legend Angler. As you can see by the photo you have made me a very proud boat owner, and even prouder that I have purchased a Canadian built product."

Well our first day on the boat went great. She handled beautifully. I have a lot of things to learn about the equipment, particularly the navionics but I’ll get it. I just wanted to say how pleasant you made this purchase for us. The whole process from start to finish was very professional. I will certainly direct people to you if someone asks for a recommendation.

Good evening, Henry and Kendal.

Back from my first fishing trip with the new boat and just wanted to share with you a couple of pictures of the fun and excitement.

Unfortunately, Joe was not able to join us but a neighbour invited me to attend his annual fishing trip with a few friends, as it would be an excellent opportunity to get the bottom of the boat wet. As ironic as it seems, we've got too much water in Southern MB and most of the boat launches are either under water or closed until water levels drop. So I headed north to Wekusko Falls, between Tramping Lake and Wekusko Lake in northern Manitoba, just south of Snow Lake (closest community of any size - roughly 7 1/2 hrs north of Winnipeg).

Spent six days on the water, the first two with somewhat rough conditions...raining, windy and choppy waters. Boat performed wonderfully. I learned very quickly how to back down a boat launch, launch the boat and reload it at the end of the day...we jumped between lakes just about every day. Used the electric trolling motor quite a bit and still learning how to maneuver with a side wind and a pivot point at the bow....arrrgggg!!!

Loved the canopy and cover on the first two days....warm and dry, compared to those in an open boat....ahhhh. Had some problems with the trailer lights, but it turned out to be damage to the exposed wiring under the van. I've had it repaired and relocated and all is well.

Joe just got his August schedule and it appears he'll have some time in mid-August to come out this way and we'll get an opportunity to get him out on the water, as well.

The captain (moi) didn't catch the first fish, but I did get the biggest so far....a 36" northern pike. As my neighbour was getting it out of the net and as I was reaching for my camera, the fish

shook his head and fell back into the lake. Oops! My poor neighbour was mortified that we didn't get a photo of that one, but we did catch a boat load of fish over the week.

Thought you'd like to know you have two more (I'll include Joe in that, as well) very happy and proud Legend boat owners in Manitoba. Had it out front on the street for a few days and all the neighbours wanted to know who got the gorgeous new boat. Got stopped twice at gas stations with questions from other travellers about where I got the boat and received numerous comments of how nice it looked.

Still looking forward to opening day at the Winnipeg Legend Store....let me know when and where to go. ;-)

I look at my boat everyday and cannot wait to get her out on the water next year. Best purchase ever. My family has enjoyed every second on the water this past summer. We're making wonderful memories.

Thank you Legend Boats!

I spoke to you previously about the wonderful customer care we received from Lisa Turcott. Her professionalism and responsiveness to our questions and needs was outstanding. Had it not been for our experience with her, I am sure we would not have signed a deal so quickly. While we did receive some disappointing news about the initial trade-in value for our boat, Lisa and Yves were open to our questions and Yves explained the issues that impacted the trade-in value to our satisfaction.

We are certainly not mechanical, but were able to understand the issue that reduced our initial trade-in value.

As far as the process for purchasing a new boat, both Stan and I chuckled when we were told there was an orientation as this is our fourth boat, however, never before had we had the features of a boat, and preventative maintenance explained and bow to stern review conducted. It was certainly worthwhile.

George was also wonderful and a great source of information. His presentation and demeanor was warm, friendly and professional. We really felt that we had received any information that we might need now or in the future.

Jodi was also very helpful on the telephone when I contacted her to add accessories we decided on after the purchase.

We have decided to return to your location for servicing to ensure the motor is checked thoroughly and any issues addressed immediately.

I just wanted to email you to congratulate you on your team. I worked as a senior manager in health care for many years and I know how important personalized service and customer care can be to the success of an organization. While I am certain the boat we purchased is far from the most expensive boat that you sell, your staff made us feel like the sale was important to them and the organization.

Thanks again and please pass on our thanks to your staff!
