Chuck and the group...

i have bought two boats from Norton's in the past few years, and was always treated well, perhaps the broker just wanted to give you space and time to look at the boats...they were always willing to work with me and the first was a $50K older boat at their dock..
for sure call carolyn and let her know what you experienced...

they certainly did not get to be the top hunter dealer (this from their latest email..."We just learned that we placed 3rd in the world for New Hunter Sailboat Sales for the 2009 model year and retained our #1 Hunter Marine Customer Service Award for the 18th consecutive year! ") and have their brokers in the top tier by doing a poor job...

All the best and I am glad that Ray Walden did a good job for you guys

Glad to hear you had a good experience with Nortons.
I'm not saying the company is bad, just relaying my impressions of dealing with a salesman there and I know the difference between giving a potential buyer time and space and blowing them off. I got the very distinct feeling that the guy considered me a total waste of time.
If I told you what expired there, you would completely agree with me.
