“Having been away from the sailing world for over 15 years, and never having owned my own boat, being a first time buyer was somewhat daunting. My partner Yves had even less boating experience and the added complication that English was not his first language. Meeting the team at Specialty Yachts at the Mosquito Creek Boat Show was definitely the best thing that could have happened.

Ian Libke listened carefully to what we wanted in a boat and patiently answered all our questions in a professional and knowledgeable manner. For first time buyers the sea trial in English Bay with Ian and Sarah White’s day long orientation to our new boat were invaluable. All the details of a new boat purchase were handled smoothly so that we were able to sail away stress free. Our purchase was made late in the year, but what a joy to be out sailing on the Solstice! We are thrilled with the way our new Marlow Hunter 33 is performing and can hardly wait for longer days and warmer seas to continue our adventures.”
