Please allow this letter to serve as my wholehearted
Recommendation that you employ Jeff Beird as your yacht broker. I listed my 77 Hatteras with him and the yacht was sold in 5 months and my experience was as good as it gets with a yacht broker.
Jeff was always professional, always listened carefully to me regarding my thoughts and desires and never undermined my desires or my best interest in any way whatsoever, if there was anything that he didn’t know about my Hatteras, he took the time to research and learn about it.
When the buyer came along , he handled the procurement of the contract, and the subsequent survey and sea trial with great delicacy and professionalism
If I were to either purchase or sell a boat in the future, there is no doubt that I would turn to him to be my broker.
Should you have any questions or would like to talk to me further about my experience with Jeff, please feel free to contact me anytime at the above phone number or email address.

Just a note to let you know how much we appreciate your maintaining a high level of professional focus on the Hatteras transaction. Though there were several complicating factors and this went over many months of effort you hung in there and pulled it off for us. We had engaged with two other brokers previous to you and my management and my decision to stay with you on this endeavor was rewarded with this successful close last Friday.

I have worked with Jeff on a number of vessel transactions. He is always punctual, detailed oriented and good with follow ups. He knows the vessels that are involved in the transaction and honestly communicates and discloses any possible defects/ issues with each boat. Moreover, he is able to help his clients navigate through the myriad of complex issues involved in complicated vessel transactions.

I had Jeff pressured to sell my 44 Sea Ray in 30 days since I had a new yacht arriving…
No matter what time or day he worked diligently with pin point focus and find a buyer at market price.
I would definitely use him again and recommend to anyone needing a yacht broker!

Jeff was the broker on the seller side. However, I found Jeff knowledgeable and very straight forward and honest. After the sale, Jeff provided us with outstanding service and contacts which we found to be invaluable. I will use Jeff again and do not hesitate recommending Jeff to others.

I was referred to Jeff from my lawyer who also used Jeff to buy his yacht. He is one of the nicest most professional brokers we have ever dealt with. His service during the sale and the help he has provided us after the sale is amazing.
If you are looking for the best broker for your buy or sell, l highly recommend him.
