“Let me take this opportunity to thank Andrew for his help and professional approach in marketing and selling our boat. As everyone knows selling million dollar yachts in this market requires not only 110% effort on the part of the broker but an added edge to separate one’s yacht from all those for sale. It’s this something special that many times is the difference between success and frustration.
In our case Andrew identified those things which should be done to our yacht to put it in top notch shape prior to putting it up for sale. He and his team went about getting bids and overseeing the work to ensure it was done right and on a timely basis. At the same time, marketing efforts were put in place including the Yacht Video to achieve the greatest exposure for our Yacht.
This coupled with Andrew’s knowledge of Selene trawlers and his ability to identify potential customers for our yacht made for success. It’s been almost a year since the sale of our boat and I believe that we received a fair price in a difficult market and that the buyer received good value for a fine yacht.
If I was in the market for a yacht or contemplating selling one I’d definitely contact Andrew. Again thanks for your help and let’s stay in touch.”

“I purchased one vessel and sold two through Andrew of which to report all went very smoothly once I signed on. Both were during what I would call the recession, which makes selling at a fair price difficult. The first was a 53 Selene, which was sold within two months of listing for an excellent price, much more than I paid originally for the Selene. The second time, Andrew helped me purchase a beautiful Nordhavn 40’ at again a very good price and four years later, he sold it. The sale of the Nordhavn took some creativity and extra work. Andrew filmed and produced an excellent listing video, which I am certain, helped with the sale. He also used his financing contacts to assist the buyer through a troublesome closing. I had originally listed my Nordhavn with the dealer and after many months, I listed with Andrew. The boat was staged and kept it in “show” condition the entire time Andrew was selling the Yacht. We would highly recommend anyone to use Andrew as their Listing or Purchasing broker, he is worth 100% of his commission. His knowledge and professionalism made all the difference.”

“Erika and I had a wonderful experience working with Andrew in the purchase of our 57’ Selene. Andrew was incredibly knowledgeable about the boats and understood what we were looking for. He helped us greatly through the process of purchasing the vessel and in getting it ready for our family to cruise on. I would highly recommend them to anyone in the market looking for a yacht.”

“We bought our Tayana 48 with the help of Andrew Trueblood. We could not have had a better Yacht Broker. He was available 24/7 to answer any questions we had, and his knowledge of the vessel was exemplary. He was always professional in his conduct. We would highly recommend buying or selling a yacht through Ocean Trawler Yachts.”
