Customer Testimonials

We had some great times aboard our Chapparral over the years. So when the time came to move on, we wanted a broker who would really work hard 
on our behalf. Joe fit the bill. He was always honest and committed to us from listing to closing. And he was there for us with a steady hand through 
sea trial and delivery. In fact, our Buyer commented that Joe’s presentation of our yacht and management of the sale was a key factor in their purchase. 
We’re happy to have had Joe on the job for us.

This is the 2nd Yacht I've purchased through Edwards Yachts Sales with the much valued assistance of Doug Jenkins. Their attention to my desires and needs in a vessel were listened to and my "perfect vessel " found. Doug's patience and relentless pursuit to find the last yacht a Cheoy Lee 65 meant many yacht viewings and a couple of survey's and sea trials. But all went well and again I am the owner of the yacht I searched for. I might also add the after sales service I received was and is exemplary!

Great experience with Doug Jenkins. Smooth and easy throughout the buying experience. Very helpful and he went the extra mile to make sure I was prepared to make my 1000 mile journey.
Thank you,

Thanks again for your help selling our Endeavour 42 sailboat. I appreciate your expertise in preparing the listing with detailed photographs and video. You did a great job working with several potential buyers, showing the boat, and helping the prospective buyer arrange surveys and sea trial. Thanks again for great service; best of luck and wishing you continued success.

Leo Thibault was the listing agent for Goosebumps, that I just bought. I had no buyer's broker. Leo was extremely professional, informative, and helpful. Though technically he represented the seller, he went out of his way to bring buyer and seller to closing. I sincerely appreciate his efforts and wholeheartedly would recommend him to anyone buying or selling a boat.

Having purchased a boat in FL and just completed the sale of my Stamas in MA, I’m happy to have had Joe represent me as both my Selling and Listing broker. Throughout the process, Joe has been a true professional. He’s honest, responsive, very easy to work with and went the extra mile to get us across the finish line; from contract negotiations to overseeing the survey, sea trial and closing. In short, you can trust Joe to do the right thing on behalf of all parties in making a fair deal - whether you’re buying or selling your yacht.


Joe was the listing broker in my recent purchase of an Albemarle 330. This was a complex deal, as the vessel was going into storage at the time of purchase and not available for a sea trial for several months due to winter weather. Joe and his team found a way to complete the sale - keeping the vessel in storage, and with the assurance that funds would be available for deficiencies found during sea trial months later. There certainly were bumps along the road. But through it all, Joe maintained a professional demeanor, worked on my behalf and kept our deal moving forward to a successful conclusion. If you’re looking for a broker with integrity, Joe’s your guy.



I am very happy that we switched to you and Edwards. I attribute the rapid success of the sale to your very personable style and positive energy in promoting a beautiful but eclectic vessel. I would wholeheartedly recommend you to anyone looking for a broker. Thank you for your excellent work.



Edwards Yacht Sales,

First of all, I would like to thank your entire team coordinating the purchase of this boat with myself and New Coast Marine Lenders. I would also like to go along and tell you of my experience with Bill Mellon, who made this all possible. Bill was the 3rd broker for the seller who was basically thrown into this sale not having met either the seller nor myself. Bill was nothing short of amazing the way he handled this situation. As he was representing the seller and not me the buyer, he walked the delicate line in the most professional manner. The sale was a bit complicated as we needed to negotiate and renegotiate the terms several times and also coordinate and produce documents for my lending company. Bill's attention to detail for each step of the process made me feel extremely comfortable. I felt that Bill actually was working for me as he communicated all steps necessary and gave me lists of marinas and insurance companies in the area as I am the new kid down here in Central FL.

In closing I would like to say I am extremely pleased with Bill and the entire Edwards Yacht Sales team and would highly recommend you to others.


It’s our pleasure to refer Joe Maiella to those who are looking to buy or sell their vessel. We had a particular need to find a boat quickly as a live-aboard while we searched for a house in SW Florida. Joe’s work with us was prompt and all-encompassing - from the time we contacted Edwards Yacht Sales through showings, negotiations, closing and delivery. At all times and in light of our requests and questions posed, Joe proved to be an objective and professional broker who diligently represented our interests in the purchase process. As a result, we got the boat we wanted, a beautiful Sea Ray 410 EC, and are very pleased with it - thanks in large part to Joe’s efforts.
