Sellers and buyers beware. This consignment shop has a long history of shady dealings. Wish I had heard the cops description of them before I took them my boat to be sold.


Short version; they took my boat to sell on consignment. Thrub sold the boat and helped arrange to ship it to Panama. All without my knowledge. Then they simply kept the money!

My repeated contacts with them led to vague promises of payment, delays and stories. They would not tell me where the boat is, or when it was sold. Now they just refuse payment. I still have the title ,(they apparently are unconcerned with selling a boat without transferring the title)

Capt. Dave (a real admiral in his own mind), has shifted ownership of contracts, debts and businesses ... But still works there! 

if you are selling a boat, the best you can hope for is to be on the good end of their Ponzi scheme. Beware!

Update to this scumbag outfit

AUTHOR: South Florida Boater - ()

It only gets better:

While the original owner of Boats 4 Less, aka Usedboats4less.com was in a coma, the general manager, David Spikings was buying and selling boats with no intent on giving money to the sellers, or titles to the buyers.

He then brought in his foreign friend; Christian Tromblay to buy the business. Msr. Tromblay assured sellers they would all get made whole....then promptly offerred .30 on the dollar to "settle the debt". Just what the situation needs: another French Canadian Lawyer coming in to save the day!!

Criminal Charges are forthcoming, buyers are left without titles, and over $180,000 is missing thanks to these charlatans. They even have the nerve to continue to sign up boats on consignment in this pyramid scheme.

If any of this seems crazy, call BSO and ask them their opinion of the "Largest Boat Consignment Shop" in South Florida.

They have made so many enemies, one of these bananas will end up in jail, the other will unceremoniously be kicked back north of the border.

Ask the dozen boat sellers that would willingly help do so.
