Captain Burt,

Thought I’d give you a shout out to let you know how much me and my family have been enjoying our Crownline 270BR. We already have put 30 hours of run tume on her since we bought it and it runs really well…. some minor things but that is to be expected. Here is a picture of the family and me out on the Northeast river in Maryland at a spot called Sand Island near the Susquehanna flates anchored next to my buddy’s Baha. Just wanted to thank you for your expert handeling of this deal and getting me and my family into the boat the deserve. Have a GREAT Summer sir.

Best Regards,
Craig Family

To: Prestige Yacht Sales (John)

From: Bob Puorro

I would like to start by saying how much my family and I love the boat we have purchased through you. This was my very first experience purchasing a boat through a broker.

I first saw the boat and make a written offer to Purchase, within a couple of hours you called me back to say the offer was accepted.

Upon having the boat surveyed I supplied you with a “Punch List” of items that either had to be repaired, replaced or serviced as requested by the results of the survey. You brought that to the seller and it was immediately agreed upon.

Prior to the closing there was a problem with one ofthe electronics, I was going to request monies to be held in escrow until the problem was resolved at the time of closing & you already had documentation that you were going to hold monies until it was resolved without me even having to mention it to you. Through the entire process you exhibited professionalism and your expertise in the area was very apparent. You made me feel very confident that everything would be taken care of with that same expertise you exhibited to me throughout this whole process.

I would also like to mention Gary the mechanic whom is very knowledgeable not only with engines but the boat as well. He explained every switch, float, button and light as well as the options, and how each one worked. Gary answered many questions I had and was never at a loss for words.

The 2nd day after I purchased the boat I had a minor problem with it, which by the way was actually Memorial Day Weekend, I left a message on the recorder never thinking anyone would answer the call that day, he not only called me back, but traveled 15 miles South to my marina to correct the problem. That is What I call Service.

I plan to have this boat for some time, however, if that should change “Prestige Yacht Sales” Will not only broker this boat for me, I will not hesitate to buy another boat thru you. Of course I will recommend you to everyone.

Again, I would like to Thank “John” from Prestige as well as Gary for making this experience an enjoyable one.

Dear John,

I just wanted to thank you once again for your support and effort in making the bargain sale donation of the 1996 44′ Trojan possible. Often times I think to myself that Yacht brokers such as you don’t realize the positive impact they have on the children and adults enrolled in our programs. We are constantly improving the programs we currently have, and always working on the development of new ones.

It has been a pleasure working with you and Prestige Yacht Sales. I look forward to future business dealings with you and your firm.

Dear John and Gary,

I like to take this opportunity to thank both of you for a very pleasurable boat purchasing experience. I have been in the market looking for a boat & spoke with many other sales people none were as helpful & accommodating with out pressures to purchase as you. I would highly recommend Prestige Yacht Sales to my best of friends or relatives.

Many thanks,
