Josh and his team are great folks, worked hard all the way through getting a special order boat from Beneteau, Barracuda 23, with A/C and Heat. They were very helpful throughout the whole process, and go out of their way to get things done. They made me feel like I joined their family and will always be there for me. If you need a boat there is no other choice, thank's Josh and crew, Rusty

The team at Viage has been superb. Josh, Alex , Mark, Tyler and so many others have been beyond dealers- more like friends. Everyone has questions and issues wh n learning a new boat and they have been there every step of the way. They jump in and do what they say -giving amazing support and follow up. I can’t think of one thing that they didn’t commit to and complete perfectly. Even the tough annoying things! Best rating I can give them is I would buy another boat from them and recommend that you do too!!

I had a need for support for our Scout boat. Contacted Viage Naples and the response to my needs were met with quick and courteous help. Drove into the lot and started looking at a boat similar newer model to ours and was met with a smile and a handshake within a couple of minutes. I would highly recommend talking to them if you are looking for a new boat or support for your current.

The entire buying process and customer service has been the best I've ever experienced. The entire group is always available to answer questions in the buying process. The delivery process was amazing with a 1-hour sea trial and overview. Since delivery, the team of Josh and Alex have been great answering questions and even coming to the dock during a fishing trip to help solve an “operator error”’. The Scout boats are really well made and perform well but the team behind the boat really makes the total experience.

I’ve said it many times. I wish I could buy more than just boats from the Viage Group. Everything this organization has done has been top notch. From streamlining the sale to handling the delivery, from answering questions in a timely manner to providing additional assistance on the mundane, their service surpasses every expectation. Ditto for their product

We love the boat you sold and essentially delivered to our back door a few weeks ago. Truthfully, we couldn't be more pleased as the boat has performed flawlessly. We especially appreciate the personal touch of the Viage team' efforts to make sure our boating experience went perfectly without a hitch starting from the first time out.

Working with Viage Group was one of the best buying experiences that we have had. Scott and the group from Sarasota to St.Pete made everything quick and easy. They brought the boat up from Sarasota to St.Pete so that we didn't have to make an extra trip which was great. Scott went out of his way to come by our home and bring us some of the manuals and paperwork from the boat. I would recommend this company to everyone looking for a boat. They are a 5 Star company and everyone goes out of their way to help you with your purchase and even after the purchase. Thank you Scott for all your help. Kirk and Kathy Fishback

Max Short is a great asset and a gentleman to your Viage Group. Max was true to his word on the purchase of our 195 Sportfish boat plus he did not pressure us to buy. Max called every other day with an update on items we added to our boat. When the boat was ready Max delivered the boat himself with coast guard ready equipment on board. Max heard my wife and I talking about getting two smaller life jackets for our grandchildren and said I’ll get them for you no problem. It’s just the little things that made our purchase enjoyable and really made us feel confident in our purchase. Max is still keeping in touch with us. Thanks again Max for all your help. Sincerely, Jim and Mary

Highly recommend Viage Group, from start to finish they have been A+, 5 star, top notch service!! I was in the market for a small (<21 foot) center console boat, with a 4 stroke outboard motor (Yamaha preferred). After doing my research, and narrowing my search down to a few brands/options, I came across Viage Group via internet and setup an appointment with salesman "Clark". Upon arrival, I was greeted by Clark, who was very professional and friendly and courteous, and was there to answer all my questions. I am a 'newbie' boater, with only a basic knowledge of boats and how to operate them, and Clark was sure to show me all the features and how to safely operate the boat, and was very patient in answering my 'newbie' questions. I took a test drive for a model I was interested in, with ''Eddie'', who was also a pleasure to deal with, and very courteous, and professional and friendly, and provided many great tips and recommendations for a new boater. After thinking about the purchase for a day or 2, and weighing out all other options, I called Viage back to start negotiating the deal, and we were ultimately able to come to an agreement and seal the deal! They delivered the boat to my lift, and took the time to explain everything to me, and take me on another test run, to make sure I was 100% comfortable with operating the boat. Very patient and understanding to cater to a beginner boater. Now I don't usually leave reviews for companies, but after this experience, Viage has truly set the bar as to what to expect when making such a big purchase, and they have earned not only a sale, but a lifetime customer!! Very impressive professional service from the initial phone call inquiring about there inventory, to handing over the check! If you are a beginner thinking about getting into boating, I would highly recommend contacting Viage Group, since they will not only provide a high quality, safe, seaworthy used boat, that has been inspected before purchase, but also since they will be there to teach you about the boat and provide all the basic equipment needed to ensure safe fun boating, as well as answering all your questions; much better than trying to buy private party, and dealing with an individual seller who just wants it gone quick, and attempting to look up YouTube videos, etc for instructions on how to safely operate and maintain the boat, such as flushing, cleaning, storage ,etc. It seems to be the general consensus to buy your first boat from a dealer, to ensure you learn how to do everything properly, rather than attempting to learn ''as you go'', by blindly buying it off someones yard with little knowledge on how to operate or maintain. Overall my experience with Viage Group has been an A1, top notch experience, and I will be back once ready to upgrade! Once again thanks for everything guys!

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.
