I met Ben about 5 years ago when I moved my boat to Stonington. 2 years before I sold my J109 for an East Bay 43. I had told him how I missed sailing and over the years he showed me multiple 30 plus foot sailboats from Stonington , Ct to Maine but nothing caught my eye enough to buy. This summer I saw Ben and was ready to buy a Buzzards Bay 25 actually from another broker. Knowing me well, he mentioned I should look at a Morris 46 that just had come on the market as he felt it may be perfect for me . I saw her in the shed ready to be launched and fell in love . I had promised to use someone else to sell the East Bay, and Ben never pressured me even though he told me that East Coast Yacht Sales had many customers looking for one, he respected my wishes. After several weeks I actually decided to list my East Bay with Ben due to his professionalism and because he did his due diligence in giving me a market analysis of the East Bay. Finally , after seeing the Morris 6 times over a 5 week period I made an offer and with Bens knowledge and help bought her. He had my East Bay listed for 10 days and had multiple showings and 3 offers came in over a 24 hour period and he sold my boat at almost full asking price and got me way more than we had discussed. I buy a great deal of toys, have a crazy work schedule with little free time and Ben made this process very smooth on both ends with no stress. He was right on with what he had expressed with the buying and selling and gave me great advise and was never stressful or pushy. He has a customer for life as this will not be my last boat.
