Just curious if anyone knows the situation in the Supreme plant? Delays, production numbers, quality concerns being a brand new facility?
 

My local dealers first 22 ZS was supposed to show up start of October, as of now it hasn’t even gone into production. The new vinyl samples are supposed to come in with the first boat, and I’d like to see the OTB pattern in person before deciding, so I’m waiting to crawl around that boat and obviously check out the new samples. His 22 Centurions are coming in already.
 
Adding to this, I was given a May delivery date. Its a long ways away, but should I be worried at all of it not showing up until well into summer?

Boy, that’s tough. I hope whatever the issue is gets resolved quickly and you can get your boat on time.

As far as quality, I would imagine they have some senior people from Merced there making sure the build process/quality remains the same as the CA plant.

Even though there isn’t much action here, I’ll still update this incase anyone else is in the same situation. 
 

I talked to my dealer, he said apparently supreme is prioritizing customer sold boats, and dealer stock boats are getting bumped. My delivery date of May is still on schedule from what I’m told, which I’m happy to hear. His first boats (2) have been sprayed, but are currently sitting on the side line until they can squeeze them in he claimed. 
 

His new supreme Vinyl samples are on the truck now, so looking forward to seeing those and getting that figured out.

Finally, does supremes website piss anyone else off? It annoys me that they can’t get their boat builder and site 100% up to date and functioning properly! I feel like that’s not asking too much….

@69C10 hopefully that schedule holds for you! It would suck to have that delivery date pushed into summer.

Well another update with some bad and good news.

My dealers last 2 supremes took around 7 weeks from spray to delivered. So when our ZS232 sprayed at the start of May, we were excited and confident we’d see it for late June, which was a relief with hearing all the delays at the new supreme facility. The week following, my dealer calls and says there’s no eta on my boat, might be July, might be end of summer… great. Lucky for us, he had one Fi23 coming in July that wasn’t spoken for, somehow, so we put our name on it. 
 

So, as it stands, no ZS for us, which I’m kind of bummed about as I love the look and depth, and that massive deep rear storage. The Fi interior is damn sharp, and the dash layout is definitely a step above the supreme, and I feel my dealer went above and beyond and offered us a great deal to get us on the water this year! The Fi will be optioned very similarly to the ZS, but only the 409 in the Fi vs the 450ho we had in the ZS. I’m thinking the Fi isn’t as deep or heavy so the 409 should move it pretty well.

Nice!

The Fi’s are sharp boats. We looked at buying one that our local dealer had on the lot, but they wouldn’t budge on the price.

They are indeed, I just love how deep the ZS is!
But I feel my dealer AWS in strathmore has more then taken care of us and is offering us the FI at a great price, so very hard to pass on.
