My wife and I had been looking for the “one particular” sailboat for some time. After numerous visits to see boats advertised that fit the bill only to see a boat that didn’t in any way match what was described by the broker. That all changed when we encountered an ad for the boat we eventually did indeed purchase from Annapolis Yacht sales and brokered by Gordon Bennett. What we experienced was a level of professionalism we simply hadn’t seen anyone come close to. The boat was exactly what was in the ad. It was clean and Gordon was knowledgeable about the boat – we ended up buying it! But that was just the beginning. Gordon walked us through the entire process from survey to paperwork to closing. He was responsive and when he said something would be done by a particular date/time it was. He provided us with an excellent recommendation for a surveyor and actually went with us on the sea trial on a very nasty cold and windy day.

The survey pointed out a couple things that needed to be taken care of before we closed and he made those happen. He even replaced our zincs, not on the repair list, at his own expense – way above the call of duty. He even offered to pick me up at our new marina and give me a ride back to our boat so I could sail the boat there and have my own car to get home.

Gordon, Annapolis Yacht Sales and Bert Jabins Boatyard were all very professional throughout the entire process. We know our boat wasn’t exactly the highest priced boat in their brokerage, in fact it may have been the lowest priced, but we were treated as if it were the highest priced boat. While it’s unlikely we’ll ever be in the market for another boat I heartily encourage anyone searching for that “one particular” boat to give Gordon a call – you won’t be disappointed.
