Ian, I must tell you that one of the most enjoyable aspects of this process thus far is dealing with you. You know 99% of all there is to know about the product, and if we run into something that¹s new you get the answer. Most importantly, you exert absolutely no pressure.”


–John G. Irwin, Yacht Buyer

Testimonial from a Vice-Commodore

“Ian handled the purchase of our new boat—including the search,  presentations, the sea trial, survey, repairs and the delivery to Berkeley with skill, professionalism, and courtesy that was a cut above any of the other yacht brokers I have dealt with in the past. His clear and concise communication kept me informed of the status of the negotiations and eliminated any concerns I might have had in purchasing a boat from a distance.  I’d be happy to recommend his services to anyone considering the purchase of a boat.”
–Dave Douglas, Vice-Commodore, Berkeley Yacht Club

 

Testimonial from Jeanneau 53 owner

Posted by on Jun 19, 2014 in Testimonials | 0 comments

“I’m not much of a letter writer but in this case I am making an exception because I feel so strongly about sharing my purchase experience with you. I recently took delivery of my new Jeanneau 53 and couldn’t be happier.  We were very lucky to have found Ian Van Tuyl at Cruising Yachts who If I still owned my company would be working for me right now. His knowledge, honesty, commitment and pride in your product was amazing. I have never bought anything in the past in which I received such incredible service: before, during and after the sale. He is very inventive in his product presentation with the videos he makes and his attention to detail. I can call him at any time with questions and not only will he answer the phone but he can address the question with a solution that works.”
–Greg Moss, Owner Jeanneau 53

Testimonial from Hunter owner

“Ian, I cannot begin to thank you for everything and all your help. We truly would not have bought this boat versus the Beneteau if it was not for you. The customer service and training and service package with Mike VT is the reason why we decided to go with Hunter. You are now not only our boat guy, but our friend. Please call or let us know anytime you are in Dana Point area. We would love to stay in touch. I will never ever forget the first voyage for the “Wind Hunter” and I think I can honestly say that she fits the name.
Thank you again,”
–Michael and Lorilee Mino
