Yep, that’s a mouthful.
What does it mean? Short version – You want to buy a boat – I will do all of the work so you don’t have to. Tell me what you’re looking for and I’ll find it for you. I set up all of the pins, and you knock them down.
Think of me as a broker in reverse.
You want to buy a new boat, but, you’re not sure what make, model, or even size you really want. And, if you do figure all of that out, you don’t have time to first locate and then go check out 19 different vessels in 10 different ports, taking time off to ask an army of salespeople the same questions over and over while climbing around engine compartments in your nice, clean shirt.
That’s where I come in.
I am a marine professional who has worked in sales, has been captain, mechanic, and rigger, and has run upwards of 100 different makes, models, and sizes of boats and yachts over the last 5 years alone. I even test run brand new boats and yachts for a magazine and then write reviews about them. Check out my Articles page for samples of my portfolio.
Because of my experience, I can help you figure out what best fits your wants, needs, and expectations.
Once we have the choices narrowed down, I will act as your agent and travel to each of the vessels for sale that best fit your needs and expectations, ensure it is the boat represented in the sales media, perform a sea trial when possible, and inspecting it to ensure that it is a good choice.
I will do my best to prevent you from wasting your valuable time and effort.
Once we’ve worked together to find the boat or boats that are most likely to hit your target, then – if you’re ready – you can fly, drive, or take the train to see it in person and decide if it’s the right boat for you.
I do all of the heavy lifting while you save all the time and effort.
I’ll even work with the sales team to negotiate the price for you if you wish.
Oh, and if you chose a boat I’ve found for you, you will get a discount off of the cost of a full survey and/or delivery services.
