I recently had Kevin do the mechanical survey of two boats i was considering for purchase. He is extremely knowledgeable and was very patient in answering all of my questions. He identified a number of issues, both minor and major. I ended up buying one of the boats and will hire Kevin to do the work.

Personal referrals are always the best way of finding someone who can really help you, and this is how we found Jon. We mentioned to a friend that we were thinking about buying a boat and her immediate response was, “Oh, you have to meet Jon!”

She was right. In this Internet era, you can find a boat online, but the real value is in someone who can guide you to the right boat and who is knowledgeable about everything related to the whole process. Jon was this source of all knowledge. When we looked at boats, Jon usually knew the other brokers and was well thought of by them. People like to work with people they like and buying a boat is no different. Brokers like to work with brokers who have treated them honestly in the past.

When it came to the actual water demo, Jon knew the best surveyor and the best mechanic to do the work for this particular boat. I got a real education during this process. At one point when we couldn’t get the radar working, it was Jon who climbed under the instrument panel and figured out what was wrong (it now works!)

Then throughout the who negotiation process, Jon’s advise and guidance was spot on. Now that the purchase is complete we know that Jon will be there to help us learn the systems and even give us a refresher course on operating the boat. He isn’t done when the transaction is complete.

Our next transaction (a long, long time from now….) will definitely include Jon.
