My wife and I recently sold our 2007 Gemini 105MC, “Kat Man 2” Catamaran through Edwards Yacht Sales. Kevin Barber was both our listing and selling agent, and his efforts resulted in a quick sale at a good price during a difficult market period. His ever present smile combined with his excellent communication skills proved to be a winning combination in connecting with buyer and seller. Kevin left no detail unattended, and quickly earned our confidence.
Kevin’s extensive knowledge of boat systems and electronics proved invaluable during this transaction. He is definitely a “hand on” guy, and helped us immensely through this process. We recommend him highly as a true professional, leaving both buyer and seller satisfied.
I've just finished closing on a sailboat Edwards Yacht Sales had listed. Being a buyer from over 3000 miles away, Harry at Edward Yacht sales was fantastic help with taking additional photo's providing additional details and guiding me through the entire process to make this happen. Thanks Harry!
We used Kevin Welsh for our transition from mono hull to multihull. We were impressed with all aspects of Kevin’s handling of this difficult and expensive transaction and would not hesitate to recommend him for your boat buying needs. We were entirely satisfied with both Kevin and Edwards Yachts services!
Once again it was a pleasure working with Kevin Welsh of EYS. Kevin is always such hoot to deal with and his sense of humor keeps me laughing. I have to tell you how impressed I am with the marketing that EYS does when they list a boat for sale. Beside Kevin, this is one of the main reasons we continue to work with EYS. This marketing strength got our boat sold within 30 days of listing – brilliant!
Thanks to all of the staff at EYS – the whole process is seamless – we couldn’t be happier!
As someone that has sold 5 yachts in the last five years, I'd like to give testimonial to how great a broker Melanie Neale is. She has sold my last two boats and after dealing with other brokers I wouldn't trust anyone else to do the job right. She's creative, works harder, and goes above and beyond to find the right buyers. Melanie made the process quick and easy! Her efficiency will get the job done in record time.
Thanks Melanie and the entire crew at Edwards Yacht Sales for all your hard work!

Harry. All I can say is that you are amazing! You are the only reason we got through this process. We would love to write you a letter and send pics. I included you in my blog posts about our boat buying experience. If you care to read it, the posts are entitled Unfurling Dreams. Read that first then Unfurling Dreams part II. You can always check how we are doing on that site. It is www.sailmates.org. I personally think you are the best boat broker on the planet and you are the only reason this deal went through. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for helping us make our dreams come true!
Thank you to everyone at EYS and especially Harry Schell for helping make our dream come true!!
We are very happy customers! Greetings from Swedesboro, NJ.
Thanks to Mr. Herb Sternberg’s help, we were able to purchase 37 Egg Harbor safely. We owe thanks to him and we are very grateful to him. I would like to contact Mr. Herb Sternberg again and I would like to talk with him. We look forward to your business as long as possible in the future.
Thank you and best regards.
Hi Kevin B.,
When we decided to sell our 50' Nordhavn, the big deal yacht brokers in Ft. Lauderdale told us it would be next to impossible to sell our vessel if we kept it here at its home port in Pensacola, Florida. They wanted us to move it to Ft. Lauderdale because they said all the big buyers go there. Skip & I are so lucky that we didn’t listen to them.
It hasn’t yet been 4 months that we chose Kevin Barber to help us sell “Sea Czar”, and we closed the sale today! The main reason this happened is Kevin’s professional marketing of our vessel. My husband & I are still blown away by the quality of the photography and the videos he posted for potential buyers to view. The buyer of our vessel confirmed to us today that the videos made a huge difference to him. There were 5 other similar Nordhavns on the market along with ours, but Kevin made ours stand out from the rest, and it sold first!
The time between contract and closing was the least stressful period of all. Kevin handled everything with a level of knowledge and honesty that put all of the parties at ease. We appreciate everything Kevin did for us, and want you to know how lucky we think you are to have him represent your brokerage.

Kevin Welsh is the only reason that my boat purchase came together. Both the seller and I walked away from the deal several times but Kevin continued to explore alternatives to make this deal happen. He was always helpful and friendly. I appreciate the extra effort that he went to helping me get the boat that I wanted. He listened to my concerns and acted on them. He was always available when I needed his help. He was a real pleasure to work with. I will highly recommend Kevin to my friends.
