I just purchased my 9th boat from Tony's Berkshire Boats and cannot believe that anyone would have anything BAD to say about them.
I have done business with Tony's for 20 years and they have always gone above and beyond for me. My family and friends all use Tony's Berkshire Boats for all their boating needs and I have never heard a bad story from them.
These negative tips about Tony's probably have more to the story than is being told.
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND TONYS BERSKHIRE BOATS FOR ALL YOUR BOATING NEEDS.
BEWARE – We scheduled an appointment and brought our boat to Tony's last July (2010) for service. After a week we called to check on the status and they had not even looked at it yet. We were told it would be another couple of days and they would call. They never called. I called dozens of times and AJ never returned any of our calls. I took several trips down to the dealer and was told it was still being worked and they were having issues figuring out about a specific problem the boat was having. Finally in October I had enough and went to pick it up. AJ promised he would fix it and store it for free for the winter. The following May rolled around and I called Tony's to pick it up. When I went to pick it up, it was still not fixed and appeared to have sat out all winter. The seats are completely black with mold and the carpet destroyed. Tony's agreed to clean it and send it to another Marina to get fixed. It is now July 16th 2011 and I still have yet to hear back from Tony's. I have called repeatedly and get no call back. I cannot even pick the boat up because the boat is at another Marina supposedly. I will NEVER buy or do business with Tony's Berkshire Boats again. I have lost two summers of boating at this point because of the complete idiots running that business...if you can even call it running a business. My next step is the BBB. Tony's is not even worth a 1 star rating. DO NOT do business with these clowns!
Tony's Bershire Boats of Pittstown is the WORSE – I bought a new bow rider from them in November '09. It had and stated in the bill of sale a "496" Mercruiser. When they delivered the boat in December it was a totally different boat. It had a "350" Mercruiser and a completely different Hull number. When I called them to tell them they told me it was a mistake and the 496 was a different boat and what I really bought was the 350. In addition it was suppose to be delivered, blocked, winterized and shrink wrapped which was paid for separately. Of which only the delivery took place. The delivery guy couldn't get it off the trailer and block it. So we had to launched it and have a different boat tow company trailer it back to the house and block it. I have reported this to the Mass. Attorney Generals Office and to the consumer affairs dept of Mass. They have not received a response. So if you purchase from this dealer check them out first.
Beware of Tony's Birkshire Boats in Pittsfield, Massachusettes – I purchased a 2000 40 hp 4 stroke Yamaha from Tony's Birkshire Boats in Pittsfield, MA on ebay which was described as VERY VERY NICE, WELL MAINTAINED, etc. Paid the next day. Had to BEG the seller to ship the motor to me even though it was to my expense. Motor arrived two weeks later basically DOA and damaged in transit due to poor packaging. Motor was not secured in crate and there were large gashes in shaft and under cowling. Not a 2000 model but a 1999 model, no propeller and oil was left in the motor even though a piece of tape on the back of the motor said "no oil". $1575 for motor, $600 shipping, $400 for controls locally, $150 for prop locally, $325 so far for repairs. When motor arrived, it BARELY ran. I had the local Yamaha mechanic remove and clean the carbs and got it running and idling well. Took it out for sea trials and it wouldn't go over 1,000 rpms. Called seller again and asked if he wanted to make it right and he basically said that I should be happy with what I got and that I got a $5,000 motor. I could have gotten a 2008 40 hp 4 stroke Yamaha installed locally with 3 yr warranty for $5,300. The owner's son (AJ) has absolutely no work ethic whatsoever! If you live in the Pittsfield, MA area BEWARE OF YONY"S BIRKSHIRE BOAT'S!!!!!!!! email me at oldbaydog1@hotmail for more details!
