I purchased a Malibu VTX in July, 2007 and after putting 15 hrs on the Boat we noticed a chip in the Gel coat when we put the Boat back on the trailer. I took it to a Local repair shop to have it repaired. I was there for only a few minutes and the Repairmen asked me if I had bought the boat new and I said yes. He said did you get a good deal on the Boat and I told him that I paid top Dollar for it 55,000. He then told me that the Boat was not Brand new that the entire hull had been sanded down and Re- shot on the outside of the hull. I then contacted cope Mcphether and they said that this is impossible we do not sell repaired boats as new. They said that they wanted to see the Boat and also have Malibu look at the Boat. Malibu came to look at the Boat and said that my Boat had a Porosity problem out of the mold and they had sanded it down and re-shot the hull. I asked why I was not told of this and they said we do not have to disclose this to our customer and if I would want the Boat repaired again that they would do that. I told Malibu that I did not want to buy a repaired boat, That I had purchased a new boat and I had paid top Dollar for a new boat and that is what I want. Cope Mcphethers tells me that they will do nothing about the Boat and Malibu was going to give me a decision on December 18th and never did call me back or return calls. So for all of you buying a Malibu Beware. For for all of you going to Cope Mcphethers or Ultimate water sports Beware they will sell you a repaired Boat for the price of a new Boat.
