  • We would like to recommend BVI Yacht Sales to others, so feel free to e-mail us if you need us as a reference for other clients. We sat in Norway and surfed the Internet looking for a sailboat in the Caribbean. We sent off several e-mails to different yacht brokers. Only BVI Yacht Sales replied in a way that made us confident that they would help us find the right boat for us. We had a good dialog with Clive Allan, and after looking at several boats we decided on a Beneteau 40. Sitting in Norway and buying a boat based on the survey rapport was a little scary. But we felt confident in Clive Allan and BVI Yacht Sales, after a good dialog over a long timespan. We do not think we could have done this with any other broker. Therefore, we can recommend BVI Yacht Sales and we would not use any other yacht broker in the Caribbean.

  • Thank you have been above the call of duty and beyond the juggling act, at 5 different hats, thanks.

  • I keep using your example of how to deal with buyers and sellers.  You were a wonderful example of how a broker should be.  I was delighted to run into you in Trellis Bay.  Perhaps we will get to work together.  Let me know if there’s anything I can do for you up here.

  • Hi Clive Danny and the guys arrived around midday today they had to pull into St. Marten to get a new hatch to replace the escape hatch, then on to Antigua to fuel up. I had my first inspection, from now on I will never doubt you again, not that I have seen the other boats, but you put me right and I will always remember that and sing your praises forever. Thanks for all your hard work again and I could not have asked for a better person to guide us.
    Have a great week.

  • I want to thank you again for your time, education, and good humor during my brief stay. I was telling my wife over pizza and wine last night that you are without a doubt the most knowledgeable person that I've ever met regarding fiberglass boats.... Your consideration and care in showing me boats was truly remarkable. And I felt a bit guilty for having so much fun. Your wicked sense of humor was an added bonus.
