TESTIMONIALS

Many know the story behind the relationship I have with Chris and Julie Coulter, the owners of Chris’s Marine and Haynie Boats. For those that don’t, here’s a quick refresher. Julie’s dad, Gene, along with Johnny and Kathy Majek, were my very first real sponsors in this business. It was over 30 years ago that the team I am a member of today starting taking form. Gene provided the engine and rigged my very first 23 Majek Skiff. Throughout the course of my career, I have been fortunate enough to work with the best boat manufacturers on the Texas coast. Shortly after Chris purchased Haynie Boats, I began to notice many of the serious guides and tournament fisherman turning to the rapidly expanding Haynie line. It wasn’t long after this that I made the best business decision of my life and joined the Chris’s Marine / Haynie team. The combination of Haynie/Mercury has proven to be a winning combination for me as a guide and tournament angler. In my relationship with Chris’s Marine, Haynie Boats & Mercury Marine, I have not had a single day lost to engine or boat failure. I know it sounds like a ridiculous statement but records on all of my engines and boats would reflect this as the honest truth. I would not be able to do what I do or have done in my business the past 8 years if not for the support of Chris, Julie and the ENTIRE staff at Chris’s Marine. I will close by saying this, I mentioned above that joining this great team was one of the best BUSINESS decisions in my life. Well, it has also been one of the best PERSONAL decisions as well. I can truly say that every member of the Chris’s Marine and Haynie staff has treated me like family from day one. As I have sat back and observed the last 8 years, I have made one glaring observation. This staff hasn’t treated just myself like family, they treat each and every one of their customers as family. This team is made up of the people you will be proud to associate with and call friends….. I know you will be delighted to be a customer of this great family owned business.

Chris, just wanted to give a shout out to your team. We were having trouble on the water Friday, 7-3-15. I called the shop and spoke to Brandon. He walked us through a problem with the oil tank on our motor. We brought the boat in and your guys had it fixed and ready to go in about 2 hours. Thanks so much for your great team!!!

When shopping for a new boat, we looked at several places. Chris' Marine stood out in many ways, especially when considering both quality of their products and customer service. We ordered a custom 24' HO in January, with the hopes of having it in time for summer fishing. Our custom Haynie was ready to pick up the first weekend in May with all of our equipment installed and ready to go. I was extremely pleased with my experience at Chris' Marine from start to finish. If you can dream it, the guys at Chris' can build it.

My wife and I just recently picked up our 2015 Haynie Supercat from Jacob at Chris’s Marine in March. When looking for our new boat, we wanted two things: a top-rated dealer and a great product. I’ve always heard great things about Chris’s Marine and how they provide top-notch service to both existing customers and outside customers as well. One of the things that really impressed us during the boat-building process was our communication, in that, anytime I needed to speak to Jacob, he would always answer the text or phone, or call me back within a reasonable amount of time. He certainly treated us like we were his only customer!!! When it’s time for another new boat, it will definitely be another Haynie from Chris’s Marine.

I just wanted to let you know how much we are enjoying our new Haynie and to tell you how much we appreciated Scott Galvan's service and professionalism. Scott's help with knowledgeable suggestions that helped us collectively make decisions concerning the design components of the boat was invaluable. It has been a pleasure doing business with your company.

I just wanted to take a minute to recognize you and your companies excellent customer service. We just recently bought our boat from you and we so pleased when we called with a situation on the water a day before a big fishing tournament. You patiently took my call and spent the time to diagnose the problem. When you were able to discern the problem you told me if I could get the boat to you that afternoon you would get it fixed. We brought it, you fixed it, and we were happy. Please let everyone at Chris's Marine know how impressed we were with you and all of the team.
