Honesty, Integrity, Customer Satisfaction Always!
We are here to make sure your experience is the best possible journey with us, whether purchasing or selling your yacht. We are knowledgeable with both power and sail. With over 40 years of combined experience in the marine industry, our experience ranges from listing brokers to buyer's agents, long distance yacht deliveries, professional megayacht crew, marine electrical, building yachts and commercial vessels, re-fitting yachts, and even to boatyard/new build management.
With this vast array of experience, we can better serve our clients, and guide them when it comes to vessel selection (power and sail) that works best for them and their specific needs. With our vast technical background, we can answer most questions, and can see potential problems when viewing vessels as a buyer's agent. Additionally, we work as a project management team when owners enter into a major refit of their vessel, working between the yard and owner to achieve a balance of on time completion, staying within budget, and risk mitigation upfront. We can act as owner's representatives on new builds of any size, to ensure that any/all class specifications are being met, as well as build quality, project timeliness, and budgets are being met. We also recommend hiring a qualified surveyor to participate in this type of endeavor. The build yard will have the class society's surveyors on hand too, to attend to class rules of the build. Some of the more notable one's being Bureau Veritas, and Lloyds of London. The American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), set a lot of the standards in the US for smaller vessels.
Let us help you find your next yacht, move your current yacht to caring new owners, or manage a project for you.
We are here for our clients as fellow lovers of the water!
" Integrity: Doing the right thing when no-one is watching you."
