Repairs took 2 months, when I received the boat, the original aluminum decking had been put back on the boat with new supports underneath see attached pictures. Original review: April 1, 2019 We bought this boat May 2018 and have had nothing but problems starting with removable cushion soaked with water, wrong ski pole for skiing, trolling motor compartment door caved in, trolling motor battery box filled with water and had to replace batteries, but the fix for theses problems were not corrected properly at Bass Pro. They sent boat back to us. This one was 3 years used and priced within my tight budget. So we went ahead and bought the boat. It keeps getting water in the fuel tank.
It had to be sent to the factory to be replaced. Day before I was told it was done? What apparently happens is water gets trapped inside the hull beneath the sprayed in foam flotation. My solution which is beyond reasonable was to have them take the boat back, give me the boat I asked for to begin with and adjust my financing accordingly. Next the bottom of this boat is full of large chunks of foam, rivets, nuts, bolts, and chunks of scrap metal and the drain plug hole was plugged with foam chunks as well. We encourage all buyers to schedule a survey for an independent analysis. Now here I am thinking new boat I need some Tracker accessories, not gonna buy them Tracker for sure.
The boat seems to be well put together with all seams and parts fitting as they should. Had to call locksmith, then thought might be the battery, drove to closest Walmart to buy another battery and tools. While we attempt to ensure display of current and accurate data, this advertisement may not reflect the most recent condition of boat and may reflect occasional data entry errors. Unfortunately the first time on the water it was clear the capabilities of this boat were clearly overstated. Stored on concrete pad with fitted boat cover and wheel covers. These make it easy to stay in a spot or you can deploy them at the boat dock without securing boat. You will be on your own.
Financing is available and trades are considered. Boat is very nice and has had a complete engine service here at the dealership. You should not base your decision on this estimate alone. I asked to just give me my old Skeeter back and payoff my Niantic they sold me!! A Coastal Edition comes with a rugged vinyl cockpit and decks, instead of marine-grade carpet. It is equipped with dual 30 gallon aereated live well with manuel and auto settings. The wide gunnels are ready for downriggers, and there's plenty of storage inside for rods, gear, and more. After about owning the boat for 1 month remind you in 1 month boat used about 4 times at the most noticed small tear in passenger seat.
The boat was shipped back to Missouri to be fixed and came back with other problem that were caused at the factory during the repair. Starts easily, planes nicely, holds true speed and runs very smooth even in rough water. Trailer has surge breaks and swivel tongue. Overall I don't think anyone would be unhappy with the boat. The area that appears extremely prone to oxidation is right around the gas take filler hose that over time out gases and mixes with the trapped water.
I email them Again and they say that there still finishing it up? Then while looking in the battery compartments there are loose wires lying all over inside just waiting to get rubbed through and short out the electric system of the boat!!! When we get done we head back to the shop and the cover is on the boat? About this Tracker V-18 Tournament - Stock 072253 - Bass boat dream! It came with the standard package and the 115hp 4 stroke Mercury. I finally sent a letter of dispute to Tracker in Missouri to get these issues resolved. Long story short I have enough dents, missing paint and chunks of metal taken out of the bottom end to make anyone cringe. Plugged in overnight and the battery was dead! Third Issue -- Because the Boat is heavy with the upgraded motor, batteries, trolling motor, and lights, I purchased the upgraded Tracker Tandem Axel Trailer. There are cracks in both sides of the console now and Tracker will not look after me as a customer. A maximum of 200 horsepower gives you plenty of power whether you're cruising across a big lake to a secret fishing hole or running back to the marina before a storm. The running boards rotted and fell off.
No wonder that model was discontinued! If you are looking for a well cared for aluminum fishing boat, you need to see this one. Includes Stainless Steel propeller, 2 Fish Finders, 24 Volt trolling motor,on board charger,boat cover. Should have known right then not to buy the boat but I really liked the way she looked at first. Original review: May 8, 2017 In the beginning this boat Tracker Targa V18 Combo was a total nightmare. Installing outdated electronics on their boats these are no longer sold. The extra-wide gunnels are ready for downriggers, and there's plenty of storage inside for rods, gear and more. When I talked to him today, he said that they had looked at my boat 3 days ago and decided they were not going to repair it.
While I am sure there are a few scratches and a rip in the carpet it has been very well maintained as you can see from the upgrades. What kind of product do you make? Engines are pointing in different direction. Great for anyone who buys one now but not so great for someone who bought one just prior and I mean just prior to them changing over. My 2012 Tracker topper 1542 has developed a leak. They can then arrange to pick their brand new boat up from one of 500 dealers around the country.
