Just a quick thank you to your team for selling our boat. Scott’s patience and guts got the job done – timely, and for a fair price. We are now able to completely enjoy our new boat this upcoming season. Scott’s judgment was key to the deal and we’re totally satisfied with the results. We would be glad to recommend Smith Yacht Sales and will be talking to you guys up this year at the dock for sure! Great job!
Just a short note to thank you for the excellent service that you provided on my purchase of the Searay 45 EB. I was very apprehensive about making a purchase sight unseen. Your attention to detail and helping me make the right connections made everything go very smoothly. I feel that you went far beyond what could be reasonably expected from a broker and provided all of the services that made this transaction so painless and successful. Once again thank you and look forward to seeing you again.
Eric, Blanche and I wanted to take a moment to thank you again for all that you did for us as we searched for our first boat. Your knowledge and easy-going, but extremely professional style of doing business, were big contributing factors as we moved forward with the purchase of OPUS. We were also very impressed with the business associates that you introduced us to and who were so instrumental in helping with the financing and insuring of the boat. Finally thanks for getting OPUS safely to Branford from Portland a very impressive job of navigating under some challenging circumstances […]
Eric, I really have to thank you for all of your help and expertise in our purchase of our new Sunseeker. I remember when I was buying my first boat several years ago and you completely walked me through the deal even though there was really nothing in it for you as it was a broker’s boat with no commission. I vowed that when I was ready to move up I would call you. Well a few years later and the time was right, but I wasn’t sure what I wanted. You really have the patience of a saint as […]
Thanks for the voice mail yesterday. I must thank you, as well, for a very pleasurable experience in purchasing our dream boat. We have encountered numerous different yacht brokers/sales people over the past several months in our pursuit of a new boat. Most of them presented themselves as nothing more than used car salesmen, which is not the type of person we wanted to work with. Your philosophy is quite different. You are not happy in just selling a boat. You take the time to listen to your customers needs, and with your extensive knowledge you make recommendations on which […]
After six long hours of perusing Yacht Broker booths at the 2007 Boston Boat Show we met Dana Brandt. Reviewing their countless listings posted on the wall we came across a 34’ Sea Ray Amberjack, a boat we have been admiring for more than a year. It was at that moment that we realized that Dana was the antithesis of the stereotypical broker because he didn’t swoon over us like a hawk targeting its prey. Instead, he politely introduced himself and informed us he would be happy to assist us with any questions regarding any listing of interest and would […]
I am the individual that purchased the “Pilot Cove” with the help of your salesperson “Dick Ruggeri”. I wanted to write to you and let you know how professional your company handled the sale. In particular, I want you to know how fantastically well “Dick” assisted me in the purchase. His advice, the work he performed went above and beyond anything I would reasonably expect. He is an extraordinary Human Being who reflects well on your company. Dick and I are the same age and to find someone who shares the same old fashioned values was wonderful. In short, he […]
Since buying the Four Moons (2002 Ocean 43) from you last May, I have never been happier, every day is sunny to me. Thanks to you, I own my dream vessel. Smile knowing that in my eyes you are truly an “elite” boat broker who I wholeheartedly endorse. After dealing with other New York and Florida boat brokers, meeting you was a refreshing change. You care about your customers. You listened to our needs and concerns, then provided honest feedback and proven product knowledge, all of which reinforced our confidence in buying from you. You are someone I respect and […]
As the owner of a new boat I am amazed by the personal attention that Eric has directed toward my needs. Eric has gone above and beyond my expectations in orienting me with my new purchase, and has made himself consistently available to answer whatever questions I have had. There is no doubt that he truly cares about his clients. Eric has also been an enormous help in assisting me with the sale of my old boat. I am extremely impressed by his overall knowledge of the industry and the energy and enthusiasm he brings to his job. I look […]
This is our first boat, and we owe our positive experiences so far to Eric. He helped us understand the features we truly needed and wanted in a powerboat, and worked diligently to identify boats that met our criteria. His honest assessment of boats helped make our choice easy. Eric was helpful and accessible through the entire purchase process and shared his knowledge with us unstintingly. Eric provides an incredibly high level of service and support, even after the purchase is completed. We would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell a boat.
