We found our dream sailboat down in Gig Harbor, Washington and needed a local broker to help us with the purchase. I had spoken to many during our boat shopping process but was most impressed with Dave Worland of Grand Yachts. Not only was he extremely knowledgeable, his credentials and experience gave us the confidence he was someone we could trust. This was our first sailboat purchase and needed someone that could guide us through the process and ensure everything went smoothly. From the very beginning, Dave was fantastic, he went above and beyond with every aspect of the process. His advice and recommendations were invaluable and he thoughtfully answered the many, many questions that I had.
He made the 3 hour trip stateside for the initial viewing, then the marine survey and sea trial, which was during covid restrictions and no easy task. The office team handled all the paperwork, including a better currency exchange rate than my bank. Once the deal was completed, Dave was essential in helping us with our extreme winter sail back to Canada and find good trades to fix some issues that came up with the survey and provided countless other recommendations that new and experienced yacht owners would appreciate.
I couldn’t imagine going through this process without the dedicated and experienced help from Dave and give my highest recommendation to anyone looking for a broker for their next sale our purchase.
