Customer Testimonials

It was a pleasure dealing with Alex Wilkes, and the whole team, at the Viage Group. Buying a boat can be stressful, but Alex made it a breeze. The whole team is very professional, accommodating and easy to talk to. Alex invited my family and I to take a test drive of a new Scout 195 Sportfish. After reading up on Scout, and then test driving the boat, I was completely sold. It's awesome. Alex was proud to share the history of Scout with me, and I can see why. Their boats are awesome. Truly. As a former Boston Whaler owner, this Scout is comparable in every way, and even better in many ways. Alex had all my accessories installed for me, and had the boat ready to go in no time. I would highly recommend Alex and the Viage Group to anyone interested in purchasing a boat. You won't regret it.
Aaron Castilla, Scout 195 Sportfish
I took delivery of my 195 Scout boat on September 26th 2019. I could not be more pleased with the quality of the workmanship and the outstanding customer service throughout the purchase of my boat. Josh was always helpful and knowledgeable and the quality of my boat is topnotch. I look forward to spending much time and many years enjoying this boat and am grateful to Josh who made the experience first rate. I would highly recommend Scout boats as a well crafted, well thought out vessel and Josh Chaney as an excellent representative of Scout boats. I feel like he helped me to design the perfect boat for me and would highly recommend Josh and the Viage group of Naples.

We just purchased our third Scout boat. Again, customer service was outstanding and Ryan and Dylan literally bent over backwards to get us the best deal. There are many boat dealers in Sarasota, however, in my opinion Viage is the best. They are honest, thorough and follow up (not something you see too often in Florida) We traded in our second Scout for this deal and the trade in amount we got was within $1000 of the amount we purchased this boat for a year ago. We were amazed and extremely happy. Scout boats retain their value and Viage ensure they "do the right thing". We would not go anywhere else for a boat and would absolutely encourage family and friends to do the same.

In June of this year I purchased a pre-owned Scout 195 Sportfish being offed by the Viage Group. Max Short was the sales rep that facilitated the process with me. Max was highly professional, courteous and responsive from the very beginning to the end of the delivery and beyond. I highly recommend Max and Viage when it comes time to consider your next boat or yacht purchase. Mark Fry

We have been looking to purchase a Scout 350 LXF for few months and we were in the process of purchasing one in the northern Florida. Fortunately, things didn't turnout as expected with that transaction (for all the right reasons) and we were contacted by Viage team about a similar boat that they had in an inventory. My wife and I drove to Sarasota to look at the boat at their dealership and they did a great job showing us the boat and answer all of our questions. I had a pleasure to work with Scott Inman who is responsive, detailed and truly a sales professional. He also introduced me to Eddie Russell the CEO, who is a great person and very knowledgeable about Scout boats. Eddy was very helpful explaining the Scout 350 as he had years of experience with Scout boats and Viage is one of Scott's top/best performing partners. In a nutshell, from the start to the delivery of the boat everything was handle professionally and with at most care. I have purchased exotic cars before and had great experience with big ticket items, but Viage sales experience was even better! Eddy took the time to personally go through the delivery of the boat with us along with Scott which was great as well. Looking for a long lasting relationship with Viage group and hopefully for the next purchasing opportunity. Keep up the great work Team Viage!

We are about to buy our second Scout from Viage. We would not go anywhere else. The customer service is amazing. Everything is explained, and when you forget, there is always a friendly voice on the end of the phone to help. We were planning a trip with friends on a Sunday. Sunday morning we had a problem. Within 30 minutes, Casey was at the dock and our trip went ahead. We cannot say enough about Ryan and Dylan. They are the epitome of honesty, integrity and professionalism. We highly highly recommend Viage to both family and friends. You literally can't go wrong!

Worked with Ryan and Alex from Viage Group on purchasing a new scout 231 bay boat from them.. They were extremely friendly, professional and knowledgeable, They went out of there way to help fit my boating needs. Dealt with several other salesman from other boat dealerships and I felt I was in a shady used car lot.. Definitely was not the case working with Ryan and Alex.

Excellent service, high quality & good price!
Lenna Young Andrews, 175 Sport Fish
I could not over emphasize the value of having Viage involved throughout the entire boat purchasing and owing experience. Viage provides a consistent level of service and responsiveness unseen in this industry. I have purchased two boats from Viage so far and could not imagine owning a boat without the benefit of having Viage on speed-dial at All times! *****Five Stars for sure*****
