We had an amazing experience working with Bob from the very beginning when we were searching for a boat, right through finding one, buying it, and then getting it ready to bring north from Florida. Even more than that…to now when we are back in Maryland and he still picks up the phone immediately when we call with a question or need advice! Bob is incredibly knowledgeable about all things related to boats and was so helpful to us initially in thinking through how we would use a boat and therefore what we would really need.
Once we identified a boat with his help, he smoothly, efficiently and expediently helped us jump through all the hoops, lining up top notch surveyors, finding a marina for hauling the boat, putting us in touch with all the right people to arrange the paperwork, insurance, and so much more. We were pressed for time to bring the boat north and, as we live in Maryland, we could never have been ready to do the trip if it had not been for Bob and his brother Larry.
Once we got to Fort Lauderdale, after the sale had gone through, Bob already had a team working on the boat to get her ready and then went shopping with us to advise us on all that we would need for the trip and for the boat in general, including the right dinghy, a davit system that worked for her stern, and an electric engine. Bob has become a friend as well as a valued partner in our boating adventure. We have always been able to discuss everything with him and get an honest, unbiased, and informative opinion.
This has been a unique and pleasurable experience working with a true professional who only has our best interests at heart. On the Saturday we cast off from the dock to start our maiden voyage, he turned out of bed at crack of dawn to be there to get a video for us! Bob came to us through a recommendation from my brother who has bought many boats through him over the years and spoke so highly of him. We, in turn, pass on that recommendation – you cannot find a better person!
