Have you requested your dealer ask the factory for pictures? The factory doesn't allow others on the tour to take pictures of anything but their own boat.

Yes... and they sad “sure, it is $250, do you want them?” I said no, out of principle I wasn’t going to pay $250 for a photo of my boat that is costing well into six figures. 😏. You would think they would just make a photo part of the experience of buying a boat.

When did they crack down on the photos? I visited several years ago and we could take pics of anything we wanted...

Gotta be a joke....  I can't imagine they'd charge $250 for pics of your own boat.  I still the originals taken in Merced for our boat. Someone there took pics and mailed them for free.

Isn’t the charge for a book of your pictures?

Correct, the $250 is for a book that’s really nice that probably has a lot of pictures of the entire process. 

People have just asked their dealer and they have been sent photos though.

This is not always the case. I asked last year when my boat was being built and received the same response as the OP (not surprising since we have the same dealer). I was told “Malibu doesn’t really do that anymore, but I can ask” I never got a response and doubt it was ever followed up on. I was annoyed at first, now I don’t really care.

I didn’t say everyone got it but people have is all I was saying. 

If the OP really wants pictures add the book to his build. It’s really nice, a few of my friends have got it.

The book is really cool!  $250 cool?  I don’t know.  But it is such a small fraction of the overall price and such a cool thing to have with the boat, I would probably do it.

Kasey still takes pics for anyone that asks and gives their order number. I found his contact info somewhere on TMC a few months ago.

Make a call to the factory they will send you a drop box of your boat if you give them in order number. I have had many customers do it.

Kasey is going to try to hook me up with a few photos 😏. Thanks all for the help. He said our boat will be going down the line April 8 or 9th, super excited!

He did a great job on the tour for us, and even excused himself to take a couple pics when we came up on a customers boat in the line.
