Customer Testimonials

We took delivery of our “Jersey Lily” Beneteau Swift Trawler 44 from Viage Group about 3 weeks ago . Best experience we have ever had with service from a boat dealer. Our thanks to Alex Wilkes who has held our hand all the way with virtually daily contact and hours of patient training and briefings on the systems and handling. This was our first experience with a sleep aboard boat and Viage have made this a gentle learning curve. Our thanks to all the Viage staff who have made this such a successful venture.

We are the proud owners of a 2018 Beneteau Swift Trawler 34. We purchased our boat from Viage, represented by Alex Wilkes, in early August 2019 and have logged over 200 hours since then. The outstanding familiarization with the boat and it's various systems provided by Alex has been invaluable in helping us transition from the ownership of a 29 Foot open bow pleasure/fishing boat to a larger, completely different design. In simple words, Alex and Viage has made it easy.

The ongoing support provided by Viage has proven to be a priceless benefit. We can always be assured that a text, phone call, or email to Viage will receive immediate attention, no matter the subject or time of day. And if the subject of the contact requires outside technical attention, it will be provided as early as Viage can have it scheduled. In this regard, we have found our boat to be completely free of major problems, requiring only very minor tweaks.

Finally, we have never before experienced the level of dedication to service, responsiveness, and cooperation, as that shown by the Viage representatives associated with our purchase and after-purchase support.

We are very happy to share this "Viage Group experience" and hope we have done justice to Viage with our words. We look forward to continuing a close relationship with Viage.

I recently purchased my third Scout boat. The Viage group facilitated this most recent transaction. Josh Chaney led the charge of a truly unique purchasing experience. The Viage group is more of a concierge service than a traditional boat dealership. Josh was available at all times of the day to assist with the ordering and build process and was in constant communication with Scout. He coordinated with Marcus at the St Pete office to receive my trade, PDI the new boat and arrange for delivery. Robbie then delivered the boat to my door 3 hours away. Most recently Marcus even met me half way to deliver the boat after the 20hr service. They all worked in unison as a team. In addition to the service, their pricing could not be beat. I appreciate the Viage group and their sales and service professionals for delivering a truly unique boat purchasing experience. Well done!

Purchased Benteau 50 Swift Trawler in Jan 2018. Between the boat and all the staff at Viage it has been one of thebest ever boat owning experiences I have had. Alex, Eddie, & Barry created A++ purchase and delivery for us, Robbie in service has been right there to help with whatever I needed. Because of our confidence in the 50 and the Viage team, we have been as far north as St Pete and as far south as the Xumas,Bahamas. They are what all companies, in sales and service, should strive to be. Thanks JM

We can't say enough about our Scout Dorado! What an awesome boat... We do love our Scout! THANK YOU VIAGE Group for all you did for us! Viage took good care of us from the minute we walked in the door! Everyone we met went out of their way to make sure we were happy before and after the purchase. They even arranged to bring by a boat our home before we placed an order to make 100% sure it would fit into our garage! They are all fantastic people! We did not spend a Million Dollars, but they treated us like we did! Alex, Sean, Jason, Eddie and everyone else that went the extra mile to make our purchase an exciting one and the VIP treatment doesn't stop after they deposit your check!!! The service and customer service afterwards is top notch! Viage has sent us VIP invites to boat shows and Rendezvous after the purchase to get you out onto the water and share the experience with other VIAGE customers! Thank you Alex for making our Scout purchase the BEST purchase ever!

I took delivery of a Scout LXF 355. It is White with a Grey stripe and Black Triple Mercury engines. It is very sharp and grabs everyone's attention every where I go. The boat is very solid and rides wonderful in the Gulf of Mexico near Fort Meyers Florida. I have around 55 hours on it and have no engine issues. The salesman at Viage have been very courteous and patient to teach me how to operate all the gauges and accessories on the boat. I am glad I bought a Scout Boat.

We purchased our fabulous 44 Beneteau Swift Trawler from the Viage Group in February, 2018. This was our first experience using a yacht broker, so we didn’t know what to expect. We were also first-time boat owners, so our questions over the first year were numerous. The entire team has been steadfast, responsive and very patient with us in every interaction-whether it be via text, email or phone calls. As expected with a brand-new boat, ours had a few items needing attention and adjustment. Alex, Robby and Eddie are always prompt in handling our concerns and they have given us the most outstanding service we could ask for. We highly recommend Viage and their team for anyone seeking to purchase watercraft of any type or size.

I bought my Beneteau 2019 Swift 44 six months ago, I thoroughly love the boat. I have put 100 hours on it already. I met the Viage group at the Miami boat show and was immediately impressed with the family atmosphere that the Viage group embodies. Our salesperson Alex went above and beyond to get me the best deal possible. THANK YOU for all you have done for me Viage!
James Peck, Swift 44 owner
I purchased a new Scout Boat 355 LXF back in December. My prior boating experience was in mostly lakes and with smaller boats. The Viage group has done such a great job getting my boat set up correctly and educating me. I have had a opportunity to get hands on training on three different boat trips. Each one, I felt like a was learning more and more about my boat and the best way to navigate these Southwest Florida waters. The Viage Group from service, sales, and training has been the best experience in every way. I would give them a 10 and happy to recommend them to anyone interested in learning and purchasing a new boat. I am very happy with my Scout decision as well. What a fun time being out in the Gulf or back waters. Now, on to learning about fishing which we are planning a trip to the keys. They are a great partner in making sure that my new boat stays in pristine condition and maintenance free. Stephen Farber
