Thought I’d give a quick update – cruise up coast going very well. CAT’s have been purring and all systems working great. Left Ft. Pierce on Saturday… Leaving St.Augustine, Fl this morning with “final” destination Charleston, SC this weekend. Next leg will be determined by increasing temps up the coast. Richard has kept in regular contact, real nice guy. Thanks for helping put this deal together – couldn’t be happier. Photo of JAYEMSEA on mooring in St. Augustine… My best, LRC

You have done a fantastic job on this, above and beyond what I could have expected.
Thank you very much for everything on this.
Warm regards

Linda Warren sold my Tall Ship sailing business. Most brokers can sell boats; few can sell a boat business. Linda is extremely knowledgeable about the market and the people who are in the market. She continually brought me qualified buyers, persevered through difficult economic times and was, and is, always gracious and thoughtful. She initially sold the 80’ Schooner Liberty as a boat sale and, one year later, sold the Liberty Fleet of Tall Ships, the owner of the 125’ Schooner Liberty Clipper. And, along the way, she sold my personal 38’ sloop.
I have great respect for Linda and her skills and recommend her without qualification.”

I chose ECYS after talking with about 5 brokers primarily because of responsiveness; I just got a better feeling with ECYS that your group was going to be the most responsive and customer oriented. My early experiences have met my expectations, which I appreciate because I am 1000 miles away in Wisconsin. Thank you.

I would like to thank you for your excellent professional assistance in acquiring a Pearson 37 sailboat. From the outset when I asked for assurance that the pictures in the listing were current and that the boat was worth the drive to Maine – through the transaction and inevitable survey issues, your integrity and communication were superb. Beyond the sale you weven went out of your way to provide a missing part for the furling system, which you spied at a yard sale- which tells me you continue to look out for your clients long after the deal is done. I would highly recommend you to a friend and look forward to working with you again in the future.

I recently purchased a beautiful J 124 through East Coast Yacht Sales. I was impressed by their thoroughness in the entire process, overseeing the commissioning and sea trial of the boat and delivering to me a vessel ready for sea. They displayed their concerns for their client’s satisfaction by quickly addressing any minor mechanical issues that arose after closing.

I purchased a J160 listed by ECYS from another broker but got to observe the depth and professionalism of the ECYS team lead by the “lead by example” style of its owner Jon Knowles. Three years later I purchased and Alden 63 using ECYS as my representative. Again, professionalism and follow up above and beyond expectation in a complex transaction with a European owner. ECYS also listed my J160 and sold it in 120 days through Tim Kohl’s leadership.

A great team, with drive, experience and integrity!

Chris CannonPurchaser J 160

Dear Jon,

I want to thank you and your whole organization for the wonderful job selling my boats. I can’t tell you how glad I am in choosing to go this route with your company. You have a great staff and we all had a few laughs too. I tell people often what a great experience it has been and that they would be nuts not to go to ECYS to buy or sell their next boat.

Please give these little thank you notes to all your coworkers. I really appreciate all the professional, friendly and efficient help over the last year. It is almost bittersweet that all of the boats are sold, but there will no doubt be more boat stories to have in the future.

Best wishes to all, and I hope business is good!”

East Coast Yacht Sales is the real deal ! I’ve had the pleasure of working with Ben Knowles and his team and would recommend them without hesitation. As we all know buying or selling a yacht is a complicated and tedious endevour. Ben’s attention to detail is without reproach and his caring and friendly attitude helps seal the deal. I highly recommend the team at East Coast Yacht Sales.
