I bought a boat from E anr R from ernie and it was the worst mistake I ever made. 2003 bayliner 245. I emailed back and forth with ernie and asked a lot of questions . The boat was used but in good condition and pictures showed like it was a new boat. I saw some mixed reviews on the dealer but decided to move forward , the real reviews are the negative reviews. The boat was to be in great condition their mechaic supposevly checked it outeverything and there were no issues. I bought it in late feburary so I just put it in the water in Aril May time frame. Well as soon as it went in the water the first drive to the dock was loose steering had mechanics look at it and its 5K for a new transom assembly due to a worn swivel shaft and gimble housing they need to pull the motor out to fix the boat. Then the first rain comes a few days later. Aft cabin has 3 inches of water in it the boat nearly sank. Why because the windsheild seal was broken and water leaked in as did water leak through two side windows. I quickly cleared up water for full day I spent drying it out. Moved matress out of aft cabin and then I saw water staining everywhere and bowed out wood. The dealer covered this up he said there was no leaks the boat was in great shape. The windshield fix another 1K. But the mechanic said don’t do anything we need to pull the plywood in the aft as it was bowed out and covered by carpet. We are thinking the whole hull is rotted out as water has been in cabin for years the dealer forgot to mention this and they probably cleaned the stains to sell the boat. As there is no way this wasn’t visible when they had the boat for a few months before they sold it to me. I should have had a survey done as the boat was expensive but I belived E and Rand ernie that everything was great what a mistake …my first boat and probably my last as I will end up paying like 7- 10 k just to repair the piece of shit e and r sold me.

it is like pulling teeth trying to deal with Davids service department I would rather drive to Texas then have to deal with those idiots ever again biggest run around I've ever seen
I bought a Sea Pro and trailer from E&R in July of 2009. I paid just at $20,000 for the boat, trailer, and motor. I live in Houston so I made the drive to pick it up in OK City. I transferred the boat and motor title and registration them in Texas. However, the trailer required a Texas transfer form to be filled out by the boat dealer in order for the trailer to be transferred to me. I had infant triplets with health problems; one child with autism and the other recovering from heart surgery. I did not have time for the boat so I stored it for 4 years. I started working on getting the boat on the water a month ago. E&R currently refuses to sign the TX trailer title transfer form even though I provided a signed sales slip on the trailer, the trailer title signed by myself and E&R, and my drivers license. The $2,100 trailer can't be transferred to my name and is, therefore, useless until the simple one page transfer form is filled out by E&R. Their response was "look Bucky its not my problem you didn't take care of this." I now have the police and attorneys involved in the matter. These people are bad news and I can't suggest any more strongly that you never buy anything from them at any price.
Overall I was very impressed (and satisfied) by the experience I had at E&R Boats. They were very good about providing requested information in a timely fashion. I became a bit concerned when my credit union started creating hurdles for me to jump over but fortunately they helped me out every step of the way and I am LOVING my new boat!! I highly recommend E&R Boats for their good pricing, selection, and awesome customer service!
My wife and I drove up from Texas to buy a boat from E & R Boats and it was not a disappointment! The dealer informed us right away that they did not title trailers in their state, however they did assist me with information on how that would be obtained in my case. I even called the Tax Commission and confirmed everything E & R had told me; they have a very helpful and knowledgeable staff. So needless to say, I now have a trailer title with no complications whatsoever. I enjoyed my experience with E & R Boats, thank you guys for everything!
My husband and I read the online reviews before we made our decisions and boy aren't we glad we didn't listen to the negatives. E&R was very upfront about everything including the fees before we even made the trip.
I am extremely happy with my purchase and the company as a whole, they treated me extremely kindly and were upfront about prices.
I love the boat we got from E & R Boats. The price was good and so we decided to jump on it...bought it unseen and couldn't believe how nice it was! Pleasantly surprised by the service and quality of their selection, I can't thank you enough!
