"POP is Most Efficient Company...Ever"Thank you so much. I have never dealt with such an efficient company.....ever. Now next time I will not need to come from Kenya to make any purchase. I have a lot of confidence in you. You are an amazing team.
God bless you.

"You Made a Believer Out of Me (once again)"Good Morning POP Team. I just wanted to drop all of you a quick line to thank all of you for another great job selling my Formula. I never ever thought that it would sell in the dead of winter especially up here in the great white north and you made a believer out of me...once again you provided top notch service from start to finish. I have recommended you guys to many people who have asked who I was dealing with, and will continue to recommend you in the future...like I have said many times you are all pro's. Thanks so much for all the great communication and hard work, maybe we will do business again someday...take care.

"EXTREMELY POSITIVE Purchasing Experience"My name is Chris Rochleau and I am writing to inform you of an EXTREMELY POSITIVE purchasing experience through POPyachts. I am a business owner from Council Bluffs Iowa and have purchased other vehicles in different parts of the United States. Working with salesman Phil Crowson and closing coordinator Rachel Ling Dyals could not have been a better experience. Phil answered my call day and night, week day and weekend. When he wasn't able to answer I received a prompt phone call back. I was extremely hesitant and unsure at first, but the level of professionalism displayed by Phil and Rachel brought me great comfort as the deal progressed.
As we were trying to close the deal Rachel was excellent! The boat surveyor that I had hired has turned out to be a flop and phoney - John Heald with Gulf Marine Surveyors and because of that Phil, Rachel and I had to do additional work. I had a series of phone calls with Rachel on Thursday and Friday of last week to make sure everything would go as smoothly as possible.
I couldn't say enough about my positive experience with POPyachts.

"POP Yachts is a Group a True Professionals!"I did send a note to Sunny Handa on the great job that Capt Dave Morby did to make the deal happen. Without Capt. Dave it would not have happened as from my perspective the boat was over valued. Capt Dave worked with both me and the seller to work out a fair deal for both parties and that wasn't easy.
I also wanted to thank you as the help you provided was very much appreciated as was the help that your support team provided to Capt. Dave through the buying and selling process.
It really showed that the POP Yachts experience was truly made possible by a group a true professionals sharing a common vision that supported both the selling and purchasing of a boat supporting all parties along the way. It was a pleasure working with you and your team.
Proud owners of a new boat thanks to POP Yachts!

"Our sales experience was nothing short of fantastic!"Good Afternoon! My wife and I recently purchased a 2000 26 ft. Montery 262.
Our original contact was with Brad Butcher who was extremely professional, highly accessible and a great liaison with the buyer. Our sales experience was nothing short of fantastic!
Monica Ischinger handled our closing and could not have been more professional and helpful. Monica was extremely pleasant to work with and went to great lengths to make the close as uneventful and timely as possible, to include intervening with a rude and uncooperative marina during the pick-up.
My wife and I are particularly grateful to Rachel Ling Dyals for her monumental effort in resolving a very difficult situation.
Our title paperwork was sent via FedEx to our office, acknowledged as delivered, but was nowhere to be found.
FedEx was not helpful and the challenge was to replace the title.
This is where Rachel demonstrated her superstar abilities!
To compress the story, Rachel had to deal with every possible uncooperative scenario imaginable to include the former owner, the State of New York, the original loan bank, etc. to replace the title.
Only through her creativity and resourcefulness did she reach out to the Director of the Maryland DNR Licensing Office to request a waiver (see below) who was kind enough to grant one, while also contacting our bank to update them on the situation.
Bottom line, Rachel is one in a million and saved the day for us!
Thanks again to your team for making our experience with POP Yachts International an absolute delight.
We look forward to referring your company to all who will listen!

"I Will Recommend All I Know to Work With POP"I can't thank everyone enough for making this purchase happen. The distance between buyer and seller made this a difficult transaction for your team and yet you made it easy and successful for me. I could not be happier with the attention and professionalism PopYachts gave me. My thanks to you Mike and all on your team that worked hard to accomplish this purchase.
I will recommend all I know in the boat market to work through you. Thanks again.

"Pleasant experience by Professional and Friendly Staff."Hi Josh,
Thank you for following up on boat purchase. I love my new boat, the GOULDS 3, named by my granddaughter. Had some small problems that I fixed. Still learning how to run all the electronics on the boat. I've been out in the Gulf fishing several times and cruising the Intercostal with family and friends - they all love the boat. Josh, I'm sorry it took me so long to write a letter of appreciation, but this was my first experience buying something from POPYACHTS. After looking back at the whole process, it couldn't have gone any better considering everything was done over the phone or emails and the one time I flew down for the sea trial. Josh, I would like to thank you and everybody else that was involved at POPYACHT with this purchase. I wouldn't hesitate to do it all over again. Pleasant experience by Professional and Friendly Staff.
Best Regards and have a wonderful Christmas and a Prosperous New Year,
Al G (the GOULDS 3)

"A Robalo in Australia? No way!"This time last year we were running around buying my boat before the winter set in .The Robalo 265 that I own is on even footing with a Haines or a seafarer here in Australia for finish fishability and sea keeping and the best of all its a third of the price in the states compared to here in Australia so you can get a whole lot of boat for a lot less money . And last and by far not the least the amount of remarks saying how good the Robalo looks when ever I am at the harbour launching it or just cruising is fantastic just knowing that every one wants a boat just like the one I own . So don't be worried if the boat of your dreams is on the other side of the world as long as Bernie peacock and pop yachts is who you are buying the boat from you won't have any problems.
Rodney G (Queensland, Australia)
"Positive Experience in Germany"Starting with the contact with Marino, who turned out to be very reliable in getting answers to our many questions. A big thanks to Marino.
Very good was proposal of the survey report: it gave us a good review of what we were going to buy. This is not much known in Germany. It was a big help in our decision.
The whole transaction of the ground transport, shipping and delivery in Amsterdam was great! Thanks for that.
Michael (Rhein-Main-Area, Germany)
"Delivered My Dream at My Price"Ever had a positive experience with a salesman? Not many have, but let me share one with you!
I worked with a POP associate for approx. 8 months without one red cent in hand. I gave him a task and he delivered my dream, at my price, and the exact boat I was told by others was not possible.
Thank you POP - the experience is already paying me back!
Donald B. (Mountain Top, PA)
"Thank You for Making Things Right"Just a personal thank you for making the shipment finally happen. Nick, once we spoke, your team did an excellent job in making this happen. I was constantly kept informed and the boat was delivered today at 11:30 am, sooner than promised. Rick went the extra mile to get it here today.
Although this whole transaction was anything but smooth, POP stood behind the sale and made things right. I haved owned many different manufacturing companies, still own two, and some of my best customers were won over by how we handled a difficult situation.
Thanks again for your dedication to making things right.
Joe M. (The Florida Keys)
"A Hassle-Free Process"Bernie was extremely patient. I was very fussy and took about 9 months to get exactly what I wanted. He went above and beyond to help and ensured the process ran as smoothly as possible. We were kept up to date at all times.
Bernie, you are an absolute credit to the company, and POP Yachts are the people to deal with if anyone is thinking of importing a boat to Australia. They made the whole process hassle free.
Rodney G. (Queensland, Australia)
"We Wish We Had Known About POP Yachts Earlier"Thank you for all you did to facilitate the expedient sale of our 2008 Sea Ray Amberjack. Our only regret is we wish we had been aware of you and POP Yachts about a year earlier. Your knowledge, customer service, and dedication were of primary importance to us and you excelled in all categories.
It will be our pleasure to recommend you and POP Yachts to anyone selling or buying a vessel. We cannot thank you enough or find the words to tell you how happy we are with the outcome. We wish you continued success in all your endeavors.
Jack and Diane T. (South Carolina)
"I Wouldn't Hesitate to Use POP Yachts Again"I now have possession of my 2007 Crownline 260 LS.
The boat arrived safely and in excellent condition, with all the equipment that was agreed on in the purchase.
Thanks for all your help in organising a smooth transition between Florida and Fremantle.
I have recommended yourselves at POP YACHTS to a few people already so you may have some new business shortly, and I would not hesitate to use POP YACHTS again should I require another Boat in the future.
Bob W. (Fremantle, WA)
"Pleased in Perth"Finally got it here today.
Bloody impressed with the boat...Great job Paul. Fooken hell it's big!
Craig K. (Perth, Australia)
"I Drove It the Next Day!"Kevin - boat arrived here in OZ on Friday and drove it to my home port the next day. It went great!
The last owner really took care of his boat and is in great condition - very happy with it - so thanks again for all your service.
Gregory M. (Newcastle, Australia)
"Confidence in Purchasing Our Vessel"As you are aware, our vessel is almost in our possession. I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for assisting us in our purchase.
Without your help and the help of your team at Pop Yachts, it would not have been possible to locate or be comfortable in purchasing this vessel.
I hope we may be able to do business again someday.
Simon S. (Western Australia)
"POP Yachts Offers the Broadest Market"Thanks for contacting me earlier this year about POP Yachts unique brokerage service. POP offered the broadest market for my boat regionally, nationally and internationally.
I would never have had access to the buyer who ultimately bough my boat, if it wasn't for POP. Thanks to you and your excellent staff.
Ed S. (Maryland)
"Satisfied in New Caledonia"I have just recovered the boat at the port and I'm very satisfied. No problems and not of breakage. The boat is in very good condition!
Thank you for your work and your professionnalism. Now the lagoon of Caledonia will not have any more secrecy for my boat!
Fred L. (New Caledonia)
"POP Yachts Took the Headache Out of Selling My Boat"I had originally attempted to sell my boat via Craigslist, but most of the "interested buyers" who contacted me were more interested in a joyride than a purchase. POP Yachts took the headaches out of advertising and selling my boat.
Also, I had peace-of-mind during the closing because the legal documents provided by POP Yachts protect all parties during and after the sale.
Nisha and Ashley were proactive and thorough, and a pleasure to work with!
Steve S. (Venice, FL)
"The Best Company I've Worked With"Cam has been great with getting back with me very quickly with all of my questions! The company has been the best company I've worked with. Others have taken days or even weeks to respond to first inquires or even questions. POP yachts has been awesome! Thank you for your concern with all of my needs! Thanks again!
Fallon M. (Lakeland, FL)
"I Would Not Have Found My Boat Without POP Yachts"I initially started researching importing a boat from the US for 6 months prior to contacting Pop Yachts. Although this was beneficial, it could not replace the professional research and advice provided to me from Popyachts. Kevin and Scott know the market very well and what is available. The 2601 Striper was presented to me exactly as described and I would not have this type of boat sitting on my pontoon now if it wasn't for these guys.
From the time I first made contact through to the contract offer and acceptance, preparation for shipment, survey and finally shipping, they were a pleasure to deal with. Kevin and Scott always answered my emails promptly and were always professional and helpful but never pushy. Living in Australia, I bought this boat sight unseen, which I would never have considered had it not been for the comprehensive service offered by Pop Yachts.
I am really enjoying the experience of running a boat such as this however, I would have found it difficult to financially justify the same had I bought it locally.
I definitely intend to be a repeat customer, thanks guys.

"POP Yachts Made Me a Believer in Brokers"POP Yachts and Staff,
I would like to thank you for working with me on my recent purchase of my Donzi 35 zf. I have to admit, in the beginning I did not see the benefit of hiring a broker and thought that I would get a better deal working alone. I was definitely mistaken and quickly came to realize that your services were invaluable.
Your staff worked very hard to satisfy my requirements and to get my deal done, working with the seller and other parties involved to allow us to close very quickly. I could not have gotten all of this done on my own and I would have definitely overlooked some key aspect.
I would also like to thank Kevin and Ashley personally for their professionalism and putting up with my numerous requests for information on an almost hourly basis!
I will highly recommend your brokerage to anyone purchasing a boat and will return to use your services again in the future.
Steve F. (Philadelphia, PA)
"POP Yachts Is at the Top of My List"To Kevin and staff at POP Yachts,
Kevin, I would like to thank you for your profesionalism throughout the entire search, purchase and shipping of my 32 Pro Line Express to Australia. We were in touch at all hours of the different time zones - even when you were at dinner! As you are aware, I have recommended you to other parties who have since also purchased boats from you and would have no hesitation in putting POP at the top of the list in the future.
I look forward to working with you on the next project!
Tony K. (Australia)
"A "Seller's Dream""Nisha is a "Seller's Dream" in the Yacht Sales Business and she is the Best. I am impressed with POP Yachts overall, but especially in Nisha and the way in which she conducts her business. It gives me great confidence in the process, even in these economic times. Thanks Nisha!
Darrin J. (Mexico)
"Great, Speedy Service"My first contact was with Kevin Stigall. He explained the entire buying process from an offer to closing. He has been quick to reply to my emails and phone calls. He had an offer ready for me to sign in a matter of hours. The instructions for the wire transfer were easy to understand. Upon my request, Kevin pointed us to a list of licensed Marine Surveyors. We are from out of state and had no idea where to find these services.
Jack McCurdy was on hand during sea trails, and he was most helpful during this process. He explained the acceptance document and pointed out key points about the boat. I could tell Jack loves boats as much as I do. It's great to work with someone that enjoys his job.
Erica Post handled the closing coordination with speed! She found a transport company and also handled the 90 day decals for us. She has been very helpful during this process.
Thank you for such great service. I have been happy from the moment I received the first email about the price reduction on the 36 Carver. I have been very impressed with the speed and helpfulness your company has provided.
Ronn and Sandy F. (Norman, Oklahoma)
"Always Had My Interests in Mind"I have to say that POP Yachts has provided excellent service and given me a level of confidence that I will have no hesitation in providing you guys a reference down under. Outstanding service, professional, supportive and always had my interests in mind. You sourced the appropriate vessel (a Proline 31) for my budget. I look forward to seeing my new boat in the not too distant future.
Ian C. (Australia)
"POP Yachts Does Everything for You "I was a bit hesitant in working with a brokerage company as I had heard so many nightmare tales over the years. This, paired with the fact that I live in another country made me a bit skeptical about the whole situation but Kevin and his associates at POP did everything possible to set my mind at ease. They were extremely courteous, professional, and very easy to work with. After three months of searching, POP found me the perfect vessel to fit my needs and everyone there was extremely patient with me and my requirements. From the minute I sent POP my first email, Kevin made me feel as though I was his only customer and was always willing to answer any questions that I had in a timely manner. POP did all the legwork for me from finding me the right vessel, to setting up the Sea-trial/survey, to trailer fitting, shrink wrap, and lastly, shipping. I would highly recommend them to anyone (especially if you live outside of the U.S. as they do EVERYTHING for you) and will be using them again when it's time to upgrade to a larger boat. I can't say enough about the experience I had with them and look forward to working with them again in the future. Thanks again guys...my 26 XSF Scout is everything I dreamed it would be!
Dan M. (Cayman Islands)
"Courteous, Professional Service"Everyone I interacted with at POP Yachts Intl was courteous and professional. Everyone involved seemed to be interested in making sure both myself, as a boat buyer, and the seller were well represented. Follow-up was timely and the step-by-step explanation of the buying/selling process was excellent. Thank you!
Philip C. S. (Florida)
"3 Reasons I Now Believe in Brokers"When I began working with Kevin last summer to purchase a boat, a lot of my friends asked why I would use a broker. After nearly a six month search, I am able to provide several sound reasons. The most significant reason being I really didn't know a lot about boats! I told Kevin what I wanted and what my budget was, and he took it from there. Kevin sent me pictures and information daily on boats from around the country that met my criteria. If I was interested, HE contacted the seller and gathered additional information for me. That brings the second reason it was worth working with a broker...I don't have time to do all the leg work involved in finding the perfect boat. Kevin worked hours for me which were mostly weekends and evenings when it was convenient for me. The last and most important reason was, when it came down to the sea test and purchase negotiations, Kevin was right there with me! His knowledge of mechanics and maintenance far exceeded mine and having someone by my side while negotiating purchase price was a HUGE benefit. Bottom line, Kevin and the team at POP Yachts made my search for a boat a GREAT experience!
Jeanne N. (Florida)
"Fabulous Care and Service from POP Yachts"From the time of my enquiry to buy a Grady-White boat for use in Barbados, to the delivery of the boat to West Palm Beach port, the care & service level of all the staff at POP Yachts was fabulous!
Abbas A. Z. (Barbados)
"POP Yachts Is My Favorite Yacht Broker in the U.S."I have my boat now in storage here in Norway for the winter. It was great to finally get to see it last Tuesday! I just wanted to say that I have really enjoyed dealing with you guys and I have appreciated your patience and all the help you have given since my first approach early August this year.
You are of course my favorite yacht broker in the US and I will recommend you to friends who may consider import from the US.
Bernt-Viggo V. (Norway)
"POP Yachts Secured a Deal I Could Not Find Myself"I worked with the staff at POP Yachts to find my brand new 2009 Edgewater 265 CC. Not only did they guide me in the choice of boat but through their extensive contacts they found me the exact boat I wanted and secured a deal I just simply could not find myself. I live in Canada so they handled everything for me, they even took delivery and put the boat on my dock at my house in Florida. Great job guys!
