I wanted to let you know what a pleasure it was working with you and Monty to sell your client’s Hampton.
The professionalism, courtesy and attention to detail stood out.
From the first when Monty provided information about the boat and then did a courtesy showing to my customers,
to the negotiation and contract process, through the survey and closing.
Each step was maneuvered successfully and with a minimum of difficulty and I thank you both for your contribution in making this happen.
I hope we have the opportunity to work together again in the future.

We are having a ball getting to know our new Hampton 630-12.
When we first met you, I was operating a Carver 560. Not a horrid boat but I frequently felt uncomfortable in docking situations involving strong winds and strong currents. You mentioned that the Carver rudders were too small as were the thrusters, and that I would notice a significant improvement with the Hampton.
Once again you were spot on!!! The large rudders of the Hampton allows me to go in a straight line when backing down. The large Hampton thrusters can overcome a substantial cross current. I now approach docking with full confidence that the boat will go where I direct it.
Thanks for building us a great boat. Will see you this Spring on our way to the Bahamas.

RE: Hampton 56 Sedan
Since purchasing our Hampton in June of 2006 my wife and I have been extensively cruising. Our travels have taken us up and down the east coast from St. Augustine to New York several times, the islands of the Bahamas to Georgetown, Exuma twice and through the Canadian Maritimes from Kingston, Ontario to Yarmouth, Nova Scotia. We have crossed the infamous waters off Cape Sable, Nova Scotia, the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine and cruised the coastal waters of New England from Bar Harbor, Maine to Long Island. Most recently, we completed America's Great Loop on December 24 when crossing our wake in St. Lucie, FL. We have experienced the crystal clear waters of Georgian Bay and The North Channel, transited countless locks, including those of Canada's Trent-Severn Waterway, spent months in the Great Lakes and Chesapeake Bay and explored our countries inland river system from Chicago to Mobile Bay. Our circumnavigation of eastern North America is now complete and at the time of this writing, we are staged in Ft. Lauderdale preparing to embark on what we hope is a seventeen month exploration of the far reaches of the eastern Caribbean.
We have rested in inspiring anchorages, witnessed magnificent wonders of nature and met wonderful folks from all walks of life, many of which have become life long friends. I write not as a boastful testimonial of our cruising accomplishments but simply a humble expression of gratitude to you, your staff and all those associated with Hampton Yachts. "Early Out" has logged nearly 15,000 NM's thus far and her Cummins engines have clocked nearly 1,700 hours. Our Hampton has performed flawlessly, taken us safely across some difficult waters and provided comfortable accommodations for us and our many guests. I have the utmost confidence in our vessel and would certainly not embark on our next excursion if I had any reservations about her seaworthiness.
Thanks again for building an extraordinary yacht and playing a significant role in fulfilling our dreams.

Here are just a few of the things our clients have said about Anchor Yachts:
This came from one of our Hampton 600 owners while in the Bahamas.
Just wanted to let you know how happy we are with our Hampton 600, she is a GEM! We have traveled over 2,800 miles and not one issue with the boat. Never have I owned a yacht that was this trouble free - period.
Thank you for being in the business and selling us this GEM!
Hope all is well with u guys and please tell Sandy we said hi.
We are in the Abacos at Abaco Beach Resort & Boat Harbour -lots of jealous folks admiring E-Sea Go'N. We have spent many a night on the hook and that is the best way to go.

After a recent trip to Shanghai to see their new yacht being built, we received this e-mail:
"Dear Forest and Sandy, Thank you again for a memorable trip. You two are fantastic and a pleasure to be with. You have a special relationship and I can only hope that Laurie and I will experience the same. Here are a few of the pics. Congratulations on being the Dealer of The Year (fourth in a row)." -B.Kennedy, New Orleans, Hampton 600 Sundeck, hull number seven owner
Here's another e-mail from our clients who visited Shanghai to inspect their boat during the construction process (We take care of Hotel, Meals, and Transfers!):
"We wish to thank you for your hospitality and friendship. We don't have to remind you how excited we are about our new Hampton 6308 that you are building for us. Its been 7 years since we have been excited about the purchase of a boat and this one is especially special since we can share our own ideas with you...We are very much impressed with your operation, not knowing what to expect when we started looking at the Hampton...we could now witness first hand just who we are dealing with and the quality of the product that you build. Your engineers and product managers along with CY were very patient with our changes and accommodated our ideas to redo the drawings and we thank you for that.
You certainly have a great selling team at Anchor Yacht. Forest and Sandy know the Hampton inside and out...Thank you again for your time you spent with us...This has been an unbelievable experience." -R. and G. Adams, Fort Lauderdale, owners of Hampton 630, hull number eight.
Dear Forest, Sandy, Bob, and all the Staff at Anchor Yachts: Sherry and I would like to tell you all how much we appreciate all of your help and support on the purchase and ownership of our 63' Hampton we purchased a little over a year ago. We can truly say that everything you promised, you delivered. We have owned boats in the past, but never have we been as pleased as we are with this yacht. I know that when I call and need some info on things, you at Anchor always get the answer or tell us where we can get it. Sherry and I have traveled many miles on our Hampton and she is a beauty to everyone when we pull into a port of call. Everyone has nothing but great things to say when they see her pull in. We have had so many people take a tour of the boat and they are really shocked to see all the great detail and beauty she posesses when they come inside. We could have purchased several other yachts in this class, but everything we looked at that had any comparison at all, was one to two million more and I can honestly say that there is none out there that will compare with the beauty and the equipment that comes with the purchase of a Hampton. As you can tell, we are still excited after over a year of ownership and look forward to making the trip back this next spring to your area. We are planning to cruise the Bahamas for about three or four months next year and hope to get by and see you all. I want you to pass along to everyone at Anchor Yachts that we appreciate all of their help and hope you all have a great year and continued success. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you in the near
future. God Bless and take care, Sincerely, Robert and Sherry
"I want to thank you for your great assistance during the purchase my new Hampton 558 Pilothouse. I want to add that I rarely find the knowledge and expertise about a yacht from a broker, as I found in your organization. It has been over 3 months since I purchase the vessel and so far it has exceeded our expectations on all categories, especially the way the boat handles in rough seas. We came back from the Bahamas last month in 10-12 ft. seas and the ride was very impressive. Maggie, in particular loves the woodwork, which is fabulous and the extra space which makes the extended cruises so much more comfortable." -A. Alvarez, Miami
"I have purchased a Hampton 558 from you and can commend your service to me. On our trip up north we ran into a problem with our transmission and the manufacturer had no plans to produce the part we needed or to honor their warranty. Immediately you bought me a new transmission and we had it installed a few days later. I want to thank you for your excellent service and I must say Anchor Yachts stands behind their product." -P. Auerbach, Fort Lauderdale
