  • iboats Review of Checkmate Boats: Manufacturer of Performance Power Boats

    Do you like speed? Checkmate boats has the boat for you. Checkmate takes pride in making performance boats that give you just that, performance. Bill Combs, the founder of Checkmate Power Boats, loved racing, so he first started trying to modify boats. He soon realized that it made more sense to build his own outboard performance boat. In 1963, he started Checkmate Power Boats at his factory in Bucyrus, Ohio where the factory is still located today. The performance boats are always true to its roots of performance and speed. Checkmate uses time-tested methods and styling to give you the top racing speed you need.

    Checkmate not only offers top of the line performance boats, but numerous styles of other boats. The SFX 250 offshore boat with a center console and an optional T-top is one example. The Pulsare series offers a mix of the performance boat with the runabout style. For example, the Pulsare 2400 BRX model offers the speed that is associated with the Checkmate Boats name, and it has the water sports features that you want out of the runabout style boat. If you want pure speed and performance with your performance boat, then you can go with the Convincor series. The ZT series of Checkmate's performance boats is another series offered in the Euro style cruiser boats. Checkmate has a wide selection of performance boats with Mercury outboards or Mercruiser stern drives. Whatever your desire, Checkmate can provide the performance boat you need.

    Checkmate boasts of an OEM refurbish and repair shop exclusively for Checkmate performance boats. At Checkmate, they have templates, color match chips, and molds for almost every performance boat since 1983. The interior can be brought back to life by replacing outdated colors, ripped, or even cracked vinyl in your performance boat. Models from the year 1983 and newer can be shipped complete to you. For models 1983 and older, performance boat orders from Checkmate are custom orders only. If there is structural damage to your performance boat, then Checkmate Boats can replace it. If you are in need of refinishing your performance boat, then Checkmate can provide the gel coat repair or painting services you need to restore your it. Checkmate can also help you with repairs on your Mercury outboard or Mercruiser I/O. Whatever it is you need for your performance boat, Checkmate is proud to help you find or restore the boat for your needs.
