to avoid at all costs, 2015-07-18

My boat has been at their yard since Nov '14 to install 2 new Yamaha 250. The job is not finished yet.
They asked for advance payment against their promises, which they do not fulfill.
They do not provide general conditions, nor proper documentation. They do not communicate.
They are contentious, unpleasant, and only after your money.

Do not buy anything at this place unless you can physically see it and take it with you.

I placed a deposit, $200, on my VISA, to purchase a dinghy outboard. They said that the motor was in customs and I will have it Monday. Also, they wanted money wired to them up-front prior to picking up the engine. They do not take credit cards for large purchases. Luckily, my wired failed, but I was able to get a cash advance for the $2600 purchase.

As soon as they told me the wire failed, even though I was able to get the cash in hand, the motor in customs disappeared. Now they are saying they do not know when the motor will arrive and they will not refund the $200 on my credit card. So, the deposit is now in dispute with VISA.

Bottom line, it appears that they have a plan to SCAM cruisers. If they don't have an item in stock, that the cruiser wants, insist on money upfront. Then, with the cash in hand, they may or, may not, order the item you want, knowing full well that you will probably not want to wait and you have very little leverage on getting your money back if it is not on a credit card.

I wish there was a 0 Star rating, or maybe a minus 5 Star rating. It's been two years since my torturous experience over a fuel pump that was purchased, paid for, but never delivered. Long story-short, I finally had to contact Visa and have the purchase reversed after being lied to, ignored and insulted. I also agree with the previous reviewer that this will be the last YahmaHaHa that I ever buy.

Frustrating, 2011-04-19
Captain: , Henderson, NV (64)

They claim to be a distributor, yet they only stocks parts for the engine models they sell. If you are a visiting cruiser with a model not sold in the Bahamas, you are out of luck. The guy behind the counter had no interest in ordering the parts for me. He said that they do not get their stock from Florida, just a few hundred miles away; instead they get get their parts directly from Japan, which takes at least a month. That apparently is true even during Japan's tsunami and resulting nuclear crisis, when no parts were shipped from Japan for over 5 weeks. It was a totally frustrating experience. I had a similar experience with the Yamaha dealer in Green Turtle Cay. Apparently Yamaha does not care about or support the cruising sailor. My next outoard will not be a Yamaha.
