Question New boat delivery

Well the new boat arrived at the dealership last week. Delivery was to be on Friday afternoon. The dealer called and said they prepped it and during the water test they discovered the ballast bags were missing and the walk through door was never installed. They ordered them and will reschedule delivery after the door is received and installed. Has anyone heard of them shipping a boat that was not completed. 2021 XT 21. I haven't seen it yet so no pictures. 🤔

That is crazy, serious different times. I would not expect that from MC.

Side note, we needed a heavier duty lift for our new sled, put a $4k deposit down, and the dealer sold the lift from under us and is giving us a loaner for a few weeks. Stupid.

What I would do is take delivery of the boat as planned on Friday. I would be breaking in the boat while waiting for the items to come in and have the dealer install them when you take the boat in for the 25 hour service. You won't be using the ballast bags until the boat has gone through the break-in.

Aren't you just down the street from the factory? I'd drop it right back off and kindly ask them to finish building it

Wonder if it’s a shortage deal. I know they’ve had problems with air filters and such.

We thought about picking it up. 50 min drive each way then to the launch to put on the lift, Store trailer, then reverse the whole process when the parts arrive. Not worth it since we still have the Stars and Stripes to use. Just makes the wait seem longer. Although we are anxious to see it.

My dealer told me last week that MC was shipping boats missing some parts that are on back order.
Your dealer should deliver boat and come to you when parts are in.

Take delivery now, add the parts later. Who knows how long it will be for the backordered parts. And even if they think they know, that date could slip out. Might as well start enjoying it now.

I have heard of boats from other manufacturers being shipped without wakeboard racks due to backorder status. Seems like this is becoming more common.

I'm not surprised to be honest. Not to make excuses for MC, but I am in manufacturing and our scheduling process has been a complete sh*% show over the last few months. With so many material constraints that seem to change on a daily basis, its a difficult task to ship complete units.
