  • BVI Yacht Sales did an amazing job in helping me purchase my Beneteau 473 "Two Moons" in the Caribbean, especially given I was new to the whole boat buying game and that I was purchasing from Australia. They fostered a great relationship between the broker, myself and the seller - who I ended up meeting in person. Following the sale, Brian Duff was completely hands on in helping prepare the boat in only a matter of weeks for the Caribbean 1500 as well as an Atlantic crossing.
    Brian provided an excellent level of knowledge and helped me out whenever needed, from assisting to get the boat to Bermuda, finding a skipper on short notice and helping organize spare parts when I was on the other side of the world in the Mediterranean.
    Karen Simpson was also invaluable as she helped arrange fast and effortless transfer papers, dealing directly with the Australian registration office to get things organized.
    After the great adventure, I had no hesitation in having BVI Yacht Sales and Brian in particular take care of the re-sale of my boat.
    After the transfer, the sale proceeds were left in escrow with BVI Yacht Sales, for quite a period of time in fact, which reflects the degree of comfort I have in the folks at BVI Yacht Sales. I have no problem endorsing Brian Duff and Karen Simpson of BVI Yacht Sales and fully commend their helpfulness and professionalism.

  • I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you and Chris for all your help in the sale (not helped by me crossing the Atlantic in the middle of it all!) - a very professional and friendly service!

  • Thanks for the photo's, in my 28 years of brokering, I could count on one hand the number of brokers who 1) take the time to build a correct listing, & 2) take the right kind of pictures, and then knows how to send them. Kudo's to you, Chris, a really fine job of presenting a boat the way it should be.
    My client, Dave, after seeing them, also was extremely impressed with how you accomplished it.

  • Chris, I appreciate everything you have done for me during the years I have known you. Your diligence and professionalism should be the standard in your industry (but then, that would take away your competitive edge!). I certainly look forward to calling you one of these days to find me a new SAILboat, wife's objections be damned!

  • We'll make a point to look you up on my next trip to the BVI. If you ever need a reference I'll be happy to give you one. You really sold my boat quickly and did a professional job throughout the process.

  • Hello Clive. Thank you very much for the incredibly rapid sale and completion of Gitana.
    I cannot thank you enough for exiting me from this adventure so swiftly and painlessly. I really thought this would drag on into November or December
    The final details were not agreed until the end of March and you had a deal on the table by 29May- amazing , I have never sold a boat so quickly, and it is to you that congratulations are due.
    The whole thing was handled very efficiently down to the document signing instructions, well done BVI Yacht Sales.
    Regards, Nigel, S/V Gitana

  • BVI broker recommendation
    This is just to share the excellent experience i had selling my boat through BVI Yacht Sales. Todd Duff did a great job as a broker and Karen Simpson a stellar job in handling a closing that involved many countries. They will not take a listing at a price that a boat cannot be sold but once they take a listing they work on it. Buyer got a great deal but I have no problem with that. I would not hesitate to my next boat through BVI Yacht Sales. (posted in Cruisers Forum) Go to Testimonial
