Andy Lee has earned my highest recommendation for a boat salesman. I was not an easy customer. I purchased the boat by doing “online shopping” over 1,000 miles away. He earned my trust and told me of the quality of boat. He setup a conference call to describe the boat’s positives and honest flaws from life on the water. He sent me numerous pictures and videos. My wife and I decided we didn’t need a trip to see the boat. (This decision is important because flights, a rental car, and a hotel all take away from the boat budget.)



He patiently answered all my contractual questions so I understood the process. Andy Lee was present to ensure the boat inspection was done properly and all equipment was accounted for properly.



Andy Lee sent me contacts for shipping the boat via water or land, and allowed me to figure the best for me. He was there to make sure the boat was properly loaded on the truck, and send a video of the boat on the way.



This online sale was made by trust and hard work. Andy Lee knows and loves boats. It shows on his sailing resume, but more important you can hear it in his voice when talks about boats. It was a pleasure working with him. Most important, it was his eagerness to ensure everything was done properly that made the sale work seamlessly.
