About David Benson CPYB
I believe it is critical for the broker chosen to facilitate such an important event to have experienced what the client is likely to experience. It is important that I know the boats and their suitability for their intended use. I need to be a good judge of condition, value, and future marketability. While I will always be learning, I have the experience, judgment, and integrity to guide my clients through a successful transaction and boating experience.
