I own a 2004 Grand Soleil 45 and have been in the middle of litigation with the broker, MareBlu (Harold Del Rosario) and Cantiere Del Pardo. The factory (CDP) claims that they sold the new boat to the broker/dealer and not to me, therefore the $25,000 of warranty work is not their responsibility. Their lawyer in San Diego filed briefs questioning why I, as the consumer would make a claim against the builder, when it's the dealer's responsibility.
The dealer, who represented that he was the exclusive importer of Grand Soleil for North and South America, turns out to be a dealer for Southern New Jersey to Georgia. I purchased the boat in California. MareBlu was never licensed to do business in California.
I would NEVER purchase a Grand Soleil again.
