we have a 2007 tracker boat. It has been in the shop more than on the water.

We have repalced the switch 3 times. It would not start first day we took to the lake. The upholstery is all reaping at the seams. The trailer boards are all rotten and falling off.

This bost is barely 3 years old. We have been out maybe 10 times to the lake. The tanks are taking on water now. We boat this boat at Gander Mountain in Corsicana, TX.

No one wants to stand behind the product.

Its a LEMON!

It is a Suntracker20'Party Barge. The Suntracker from *** is what we call it.

I have 22 fish barge 2017 w 115 merc ct.was out in3-5 footers in gulf 30 miles out. Boat ran great on way out but started surging after 10 minutes.

Fulctuates from 1800 to 4400 rpm . Have to let it idle a n the a little 10 min before it starts again. Does it all way back. Dealer fixed once kept boat for over 30 days.

It run after fix it did it again.

Dealer said need a fUel seperator. I put on in but to rough to try it now.

I bought a 22' Fishin Barge new from dealer two years ago. I am interested in the class action suit.

My transom came apart. Tracker had to send me a new boat it was so bad. I was without the boat for 6 months. I have tires going bad with very few miles on them.

I now have water in the gas tank problem. It has been a bummer.

When it does run, we have a good time but with all of the issues, I don't recommend SunTracker.

Sorry should have read my post this is jack48 the defect is the gas tank it was full of water. When a shop has over 12 boats with the same defective tank they need a recall

I bought a 2016 fishing barge and at 10hrs had to replace my engine mercury stepped up and replaced it but they wont tell me how water got in now I have a new engine but scared to even use it they put on a water separator and moved the vent line up on deck now im trying to figure out how to get a bottom sample before I take it out, when I stick my tank something is blocking it from going to the bottom.

Let me know how this worked out for you? I bought a new 2015 24xp3 Fishin barge with 2014 200hp Verado, it was a demo with 12 hours on it....

I never put gas in the boat, had 1/2 tank from dealer, got it out on the lake 7 days after purchase had water in fuel. Dealer sent a mechanic to my house, cleaned water out of filter, and I advised he needed to drain tank and put new gas in, and run for 20 min with no faults before bringing it back... He brought it back with a full tank of gas and said he drained tank and ran it for 20 min with no errors. I took it out on the lake 2 days later, before I got past the bouys, water in fuel alarm again.

I'm extremely upset at this point, at a minimum I want a new tank, fuel lines, external fuel separator, and documentation in case I have any future engine trouble... The engine never sputtered or ran bad, but I never really got above an idle as both time is had it out, I never got past the bouys!

I'm 3 weeks into this purchase and still have not been able to use the boat! But paid for 2 lake trips!

Well, I have spent the last three hours reading up on all the issues with Bass PRO Shop the their Tracker. I was considering a tracker 16 ft pro fishing boat that is 2010.

It's new, never seen the water and was won by the gentleman. Now I understand why it's never been used.

I guess buddy is going to have the boat a bit longer. All I can say is thank you and good luck.

the pontoon is not the problem 1st you should have looked to make sure you bought the right year newer pontoons are made different around 2000 they started making the decks out of 7ply plywood and we all know water and wood don't mix.the older type 2000 and earler have a deck made from aluminum.but its a older boat and made better.new isn't better.

I have 2010 purchased in 2011 new tracker targa and have been into the shop numerous times for the tires wearing out. They have replaced the tires 2 times, now they tell me that i have under inflated the tires, so they will not replace them again, i now need tires again for the third time.

They r completely bald again (about 2000 miles per set on tires, i am pissed.. (i have kept the pressure between 43 psi to 49 psi.) The trailer has been alligned and it is still not right.


Hey Guy's,

I'm looking to start a class action lawsuit.

I would need everyone info. Address, date of purchase and a record of all the time it's been serviced.

My friend is a corporate lawyer and says we can defenatly take them on.

Will be linking a website shortly.

to Vincent #619566

Would be interested in class action suit. Do you have a website up yet?

Not comfortable leaving my info on here but have everything documented. It is a new 2012 model.

to Vincent #703243

i have a tracker 2012 party barge. bought new at bass pro shop in branson.

Have had it less that 2 years and the seats are ripping at the seams.

I would be interested in a lawsuit.

to Vincent Marco Island, Florida, United States #788963

I am replying to a class action lawsuit. Anyone doing it?

My Sun Tracker 2013 from Bass Pro I had out 3 times and pontoons leaked several places. Please let me know if there is a suit because Sun Tracker will do nothing.


We too have a Suntracker pontoon, 22ft. Party Barge.

The uphosterly started to tear and come apart the second year we had it. (The boat was new when we bought it, not used.) Tracker was totally uninterested in our problem. I was looking online recently to get prices on used boats. (We are selling this one.) I just wanted to see approximately how much to sell it for.

I came across an ad for new Party Barges.

One of the things they listed under specs was a new and better fabric on the furniture. Guess they listened to someone!


Please listen as I didn't and now am stuck with a piece of junk that Tracker will do nothing about. Bought in 2011 and have been able to use it about a month. Stay away from Tracker you are waisting your money.


I wish something could be done about tracker. I have a useless '06 targa v185 with a cracked hull.

Most of the other welds in the hull have also failed. What a pile of garbage.


I purchased a 2010 bass buggy pontoon. the uphostery after one season looked 5yrs old. mildew is impossible to stop or stay on top of


I just bought an 18' Bass Buggy Sun Tracker and likewise am appalled. Water gushes over the transom an rises as high as the cowling.

Unable to see the water pee exhaust and the water gushes over the gas tank. Fuel guage doesn't work. neither does the livewell pump.

Pontoons are corroding already. Boat is two weeks old.


I purchased a Fishin Barge in 2003. The quality issues were immediately noticeable with the 1st launch.

Gas gauge not operating, protruding rivets abrading plastic gas tank & static in radio. By the end of the 1st season, 80% of the transom welds broke, numerous pontoon-to-deck bracket welds broke, seat cushions were water saturated, carpet was rotting, seat seams were seperating and one pontoon was taking on water. Tracker repaired the welds and the radio, but nothing else. Major welds have broke yearly with Tracker not standing behind the quality of the boat.

Tracker indicated to me that I was using the boat in a manner it was not designed!!! This statement is not true since the only use is taking my 3 young boys & wife for pleasure reads & swimming.

The pontoon boats Tracker produces are not safe!! I would like to be part of a class action suit.
