What Sets Joe Apart?
: Over 50 years of boating and cruising adventures set Joe apart from those who merely dream of sailing and cruising away to distant ports. Joe is not just one who sells yachts, but he is a yachtsman. Susan has recently grown into the passion, so clients get both perspectives.
: Joe has taken his own boats from Lake Champlain to Boston, Block Island, Martha’s Vineyard, Long Island Sound, Chesapeake Bay, San Diego to Cabo San Lucas, Sea of Cortez, Mobile up the Tom-Bigbee Waterway to Nashville and back to throughout the Bahamas. Susan was a novice in 2007, but weathered 10’ seas rounding Great Stirrup in the Berrys & a 27 hr run to the Dry Tortugas, yet she is still an avid boatwoman!
3. Active Boating
: Joe, Susan and Baci, a Teddy Bear Schnoodle presently own a 36’ Monk Trawler with over 16,000 miles of cruising aboard “Set Free”. Joe has cruised in his own trawlers including: A CT42 Trawler from San Diego to Cabo San Lucas Mexico; an Albin 27 Trawler from Annapolis Maryland to Block Island and up the Hudson River to Canada; a Grand Banks 42 down the ICW and throughout the Bahamas and across the Gulf of Mexico. This means the client gets real cruising insights regarding a variety of trawlers.
4. Couples Cruising Experience
: Susan began cruising in 2007 with Joe. She had never been on a trawler, nor had she been on the open seas. Joe took Susan on short trips from St. Pete to Sarasota. Then they visited the Annapolis Boat Show and met Captain Patty of Sea Sense. [Sea Sense is a week long, women only boating course, which Susan completed in 2008.] Then Joe and Susan cruised across the Gulf of Mexico to the Dry Tortugas! Finally, 2009 was a 3 month cruise through the Bahamas including: The Exumas, Eleuthera, & the Abacos. So often, the wife has great reservations about cruising. Susan has faced all the challenges and flourished. This is not theory, but first hand! We can help spouses and partners overcome their reservations.
5. Kids & Cruising Experience
: Joe, as a child, cruised from Lake Champlain to Block Island to the Chesapeake AND was able to take his own children to those same places and more! This means the clients and their families have extensive experience working for them.
