I finally decided to fulfill a 40 year bucket list item that I had. I’ve always wanted a motor yacht! This went well with Melodi as she always wanted waterfront!
Since I’ve been boating for years with a 24′ cuddy, how hard could it be locating the one that we wanted?
We started looking and was soon overwhelmed by all of the choices, and the actual process of purchasing a boat.
A friend of mine suggested that I contact Jon for help.
One of the first questions that I asked him was in regards to a nice looking one out of Florida.
He countered with a “why would you want to purchase a hurricane boat?”
Jon did find us a nice 58′ Navigator in Friday Harbor that felt right as soon as we hit the swim step.
He gave great advice on what to look for in a boat of that size.
Jon contacted the owners broker and we all settled on a fair price.
Jon also sourced funding, insurance, the surveys, and maintenance parts.
Because of his expertise, EVERYTHING went very smoothly!
Jon even came over to Friday Harbor help familiarize us with the “FIQ” and practice docking techniques with twin screws.
I would hate to think where I would be in this process if Jon wasn’t there to help!
Would I recommend Jon to friends? O yea!
Would I use Jon again? O heck yea!
