我们对购买这条HUNTER35.5帆船非常满意，我们也对Lawrence 先生的周到服务表示感谢。作为初到加拿大的新移民，我们对加拿大的船艇交易规则所知甚少，特别是对于船艇相关的英语感到特别困难。但是 Lawrence 先生对我们有极大的耐心，用我们能理解的简单英语详细的回答和解释了我们有关专业术语和船艇买卖条款的问题。我们是第一次购买帆船，所以没有帆船的任何使用和维护的经验，Lawrence 先生在随后的服装，装备的采购，寻找泊位，驾驶培训和设备维修方面提供了无私帮助。对此我们深表感谢。
"I have had the pleasure of dealing with Lawrence Fronczek of Specialty Yachts now for the purchase of 2 Hunter sailboats. Lawrence knows Hunters inside and out and he is supported by a strong and specialized service team. Lawrence makes the process of purchasing a boat seamless and he balances his responsibilities between seller and buyer with honesty and candour. I would certainly recommend Lawrence and Specialty Yachts to boaters whether buying, selling, servicing or repairing."
"Twenty five years ago at the Vancouver International Boat Show I first came across Hunter sailboats and was immediately taken by their unique and innovative designs. I have been sailing most of my life and I finally took the plunge and bought my own new Hunter 38 in 2010 from Specialty Yachts. Cruising the West Coast for the next three years only whetted my appetite for more.
"I have known Lawrence Fronczek for over 20 years, having bought three Hunter sailboats over that period – a Hunter 35.5 in 1994; a Hunter 380 in 2000; and a Marlow-Hunter 40 this year. Lawrence and his team are consummate professionals, sailors themselves, and responsive to every question. For a dealership, their level of interaction with the Hunter organization is extraordinary and I can understand why Specialty Yachts was named the worldwide Dealer of the Year by Hunter in 2012. I was attracted to the Marlow-Hunter 40 because of its sleek design and the outstanding quality of the interior layout. The commissioning process led by Sarah White has been excellent and I know I can depend on superb after-sales service for many years to come!"
"We first met Lawrence and the SYS team at the Mosquito Creek boat show, and from that moment on he has been courteous and helpful in our quest to find a new yacht. Having only moved to British Columbia 18 months ago, it was important for us to buy a boat from someone we felt we could trust to navigate us through the boat buying process. Lawrence has given us that confidence, and we've ended up with a quality boat at great value. It's been clear throughout that SYS aren't just trying to sell you a product, their commitment to making sure you end up with a boat that fits your lifestyle and their ongoing support since buying our boat has been first class. We look forward to joining them all on the SYS Hunter rally next summer!"
"We owned a Gulfstar 50 for 27 years and sold it four years ago, thinking
that, at our age, it was time to "retire" to a power boat. After spending
many months looking at, comparing and conducting sea trials on many
beautiful power boats, we came to the realization that what we really missed
was sailing, just for the pleasure of turning off that motor and listening
to the wind, the waves and the power of the boat itself.
As long term boaters and having bought and sold several yachts, Lawrence and his staff at Specialty Yachts has provided outstanding professional service above and beyond our level of expectation.
The prompt attention to the SMALL details has made "THE BIG DIFFERENCE"!
Thank-you so much!
"I recently bought a new 2012 Hunter 50AC from Specialty Yachts. This is the second Hunter I have purchased from Specialty, my first was a Hunter 44ds. I had several things that I wanted done a certain way to meet my own
specific use and taste. Lawrence Fronczek made the entire experience very positive and enjoyable.
"Lawrence I want to write a testimonial to tell you this:
We purchased our Hunter 45cc center cockpit on July 3rd through Lawrence Fronczek of Specialty Yachts in Granville Island, BC. Lawrence is an amazing professional yacht broker with unbelievable attention to detail and exceptional customer service skills. The purchase process and registration through ships registry was seamless and transparent. Lawrence truly understands the importance of a positive customer experience -- he made us feel like we were the most important customer at Specialty Yachts and we commend him for his caring attitude to ensure we were completely satisfied with both the sales and the service throughout the entire process. Lawrence, you and your team are amazing. We are very fortunate to have you as our broker and to have the extended Specialty Yachts team to service our boat for years to come.
"We had been considering the possibility of a newer sailboat for sometime when Pacific Yachting featured the new Hunter 33 in its April 2012 edition. After an initial email, Lawrence Fonczek met us on board the 33 at the Victoria Boat Show. His enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge of the Hunter brand and this boat in particular convinced us we definitely needed a second look. This lead us to Vancouver where after an awesome “sea trial” we purchased the 33! Lawrence and his team at Specialty Yacht Sales, although very busy that day, patiently answered our many questions and concerns. They took the necessary steps to insure we were completely satisfied with the options that were available to make this new boat ours. We look forward to working with our new friends at Specialty Yacht Sales as our boat is commissioned. As someone who has worked in the retail sales environment for over 25 years, I understand the importance of innovation and customer service. Specialty Yacht Sales excels in both!
"After looking at beautiful Hunters for sale online, we took the plunge and stopped in at Specialty Yachts. We were warmly greeted by Ian Libke and Lawrence Fronczek and immediately felt like we were in the company of new friends. No sales pressure here at all – instead, a courteous and friendly approach that made us feel right at home. Additionally, their knowledge of sailing and their products really impressed us – but it was their approach that made it so enjoyable. What could have been a stressful experience was, instead, truly enjoyable. It didn’t stop there though – the after-sales service has been fabulous. Sarah White runs an excellent service department and the full day she spent providing us with an orientation to our new boat “Loch Moigh” was both enjoyable and extremely helpful. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience in buying a new boat and we’re delighted to recommend Hunter and Specialty.
"The Hunter line has always intrigued us and 10 years ago when we bought our C&C we knew what we really wanted was a Hunter. We recently were walking the docks on Granville Island and the gleam and majesty of the Hunter 41 Deck Salon caught our attention. Following a few visits and many phone calls and emails with Specialty’s Ian Libke, our dream came true. Ian, always so friendly, professional and service-oriented, helped us sell our boat and buy our new Hunter “Masada”. The expertise and support of the Specialty team – Ian, Lawrence and John – ensured a smooth transition and experience that could have, otherwise, been stressful. They were there to help us every step of the way. John even looked after our pug, Olive, while we were loading supplies onto our new boat. That's customer service!
“My wife and I had the pleasure this fall of purchasing a new 2012 Hunter 50ac from Specialty Yachts. Every aspect of this acquisition has been enjoyable and made more so by Specialty Yachts.
"We recommend Lawrence Fronczek and his team at Specialty Yacht Sales to anyone interesting in purchasing a sail or power boat. Our first experience with Specialty was in 2002 at the Vancouver International Boat Show at BC Place Stadium, where we bought our first Hunter, a 356 model. Since that time, Specialty Yachts and Lawrence have acted for us on the purchase of three other vessels, and have at all times been completely efficient and businesslike in the transactions. We have come to rely on Lawrence for all things "maritime"; he is always willing to share his first-hand experience and knowledge and knows no boundaries when it comes to service. The staff too are friendly, capable and knowledgeable of the boating market in BC and Western Canada. I also can't say enough about Sarah White and her service department. They are experts at commissioning a vessel, and able to accommodate all servicing requests with quiet efficiency.
"This is the second new boat we bought from Specialty Yachts.
"We recently purchased our Hunter 50ac from Specialty Yachts in Vancouver and are very pleased with how the team handled the sale and subsequent support. Sales associate Ian Libke, who introduced us to the boat, was a pleasure to deal with and continues to follow-up to ensure our continued satisfaction. Owner, Lawrence Fronczek, and the service team, headed by Sarah White, showed a genuine interest in caring for our particular needs and handled the entire process with professionalism.
We have sailed our new boat several times now and are extremely pleased with the ease of use and performance. The configuration of the vessel lends itself to easy handling.
"Always offering a quality product whether in new, or used boats, the people at Specialty Yachts have guided us through, first, the purchase of a new Mainship 390 Trawler almost ten years previous, and now to our new sailboat, a Hunter 49. The thoughtful dedication to minute detail, service and careful and accurate explanation of the equipment, and various add ons to customize a boat to your particular needs, (we have young children just learning to sail) starting with Lawrence Fonczek, and the team at Speciality, (of course Sarah was relentless in her pursuit of delivering a fully operational vessel) allowed us the satisfaction of a very happy purchasing experience. Having owned several boats over thirty plus years of sailing, we have our eccentricities which were accommodated at every mention. Kudos and many thanks to the team at Specialty."
"Every year in early June, Specialty Yachts hosts the annual Hunter Rendezvous at Telegraph Harbour Marina on Thetis Island. We mark the dates in our Calendar a year in advance and consider it to be one of the highlights of our sailing season.
"Finding the right yacht broker makes all the difference when buying a sailboat. The team at Specialty took time to understand our needs, helped us assess the merits of different boats, and worked with us to conclude our purchase. The team consistently demonstrated integrity, diligence, and perseverance - qualities that are so important in business today.
