Advice from a diligent expert
“My objective has always been to use my experience to match up the right yacht with each customer. I like to sit down with each customer to discuss his or her objectives to help determine their budget, and then to make each client aware of the best possible choices given their parameters. If you aren’t quite sure of what you want, whether it be a boat for family, cruising, entertaining, sport fishing, racing or long distance exploration, I can help you clarify your needs and translate that into a suitable yacht.”
