My passion for boating started in 1963 growing up with my parents in the Bremerton Yacht Club and their boating adventures in a 25' Sabre Craft. Since then the love for boating has grown to being a live aboard on and off for 20 years owning a 1946 Chris Craft Catalina a 1962 50' Chris Craft Connie and several other boats! I also have been in boat brokerage and the boat restoration and repair industry for over 25 years. My goal is to find you the perfect boat for you and your family's needs!
I am thoroughly impressed so far. I was very very interested in another boat but he's already closing on that boat. He has already sent me a list of boats this morning and I have to look through them for consideration. I was very impressed that he sent a list of boats that were similar to the one that is now unavailable. So in that regard, thank you very much for following up with me. I was curious a bit about the web site because it seems a bit out dated. I was wondering if you know if the marketing and IT department plans to update the look and feel. Given that you are selling a luxury item, you would probably want more of a professional presence on your boating site. I manage big enterprise projects in the PNW and so always thinking about these marketing related items. Also, I have always wanted to start a yacht-sharing company as I feel there is a large void in the market that could possibly be filled. Have you or anyone you work with ever proposed something similar to you? It just seems that you probably sit on a lot of inventory that could easily mobilize for such an idea. Let me know your thoughts and look forward to hearing back from you Jim.

Thank you for the followup. Randy was extremely professional, courteous and helpful. He answered all of my questions that he could and was upfront with the answers he did not have. Very refreshing. I have been out of sailing for several years and looking to get back into the sport. I am interested in the Formosa 42 Sea Tiger that you have listed. Being new to the area, I might be interested if I could be pointed in a good direction to get new masts/rigging and to have the interior restored/repaired/updated. I can do much of the work myself but there are some items best left to professionals. Also, a survey of the vessel to let me know what other issues with the hull, engines, etc. that aren't apparent to the untrained eye that are/potentially present. Anyways, thanks again for contacting me!

Randy was very attentive to my interest and inquiry into the 1988 IP. He contacted me immediately and even offered alternatives to consider in place of my neighbor's boat. I am holding off on another vessel purchase though until later in the summer... I already have a little boat and need to do some upgrades and work on it before selling and moving onto something else.
