As brokers, whether you are the seller or buyer, we take responsibility and go "ABOVE & BEYOND" to satisfy YOUR requirements very seriously and will go to great lengths to transmit as much important information about the boats you are investigating or selling. We also assist potential buyers with finding a boat that may not be in our local area and will travel, at no cost to you, to check out a desired boat and negotiate a price on your behalf. We are straight forward and will tell you what you need to know, give you advice based on current market conditions - we have access to a large ‘sold boats’ database as well as what is currently on the market. We not only know the boats we are selling very thoroughly but are usually current with what else is on the local market. We also know the best of the resources in the area and can put you in contact with the professionals who can help you prepare your boat for sale, check out a boat you may be interested in, offer a list of area surveyors, boat yards and Insurance companies specializing in boats.


If you are in the market, our team is ready to join you through this process. We have found boats for buyers as far off as Michigan and had them shipped down. We have also shipped boats to both Texas and Maine. If you need help selling your boat, please contact us to discuss the possibilities.
