Are you in interested in selling your boat
or are you ready to buy a boat?
I have been very fortunate to have spent much of the last 13 years cruising aboard our boat with my amazing family. I have cruised the East Coast from Maine to Florida many times and have sailed offshore including to Bermuda. I rode out hurricanes Sandy and Irene on the hook and with that cruising life came the knowledge developed from the personal restoration and reconfiguration of our boats both sail and power. I am eager to share the knowledge gained in my hands on approach to boating and the passion I have for this incredible lifestyle! I am always looking for new quality listings to connect to new owners.
I work tirelessly for my clients in assisting them in locating, previewing and purchasing boats in addition to selling their boats. If I can assist you in your pursuit of “simply messing about in boats” I would be honored.
