Seamew, my new(ish) 1989 Hunter 30 from Specialty Yachts is the realization of a life long dream to own a sailboat. Through the process of defining what was realistic, lots of research, and walking through many variations of sailboats the Hunter stood out by far.
I can honestly say my broker, Darren Marriott, went beyond any expectations in making the purchase stress free and focused on the end goal, sailing away every weekend to discover the coast anew. Through the offer, mechanical, sea trial, survey and final purchase this 30 year old boat is going to be loved, even with a few inevitable issues to work on over the next few months. Darren helped with everything from getting insurance, temporary moorage, picking the boat up for it’s inaugural sail, organizing a haul out for repairs etc. He remained positive, communicative and optimistic through the entire process, helping to keep everything in perspective, while offering lots of suggestions and alternatives.
This will always be my first boat, but likely not the last. I would highly recommend Darren and Specialty Yachts.
