I would like to commend Alex Hall, the Brewer Yacht Broker in Portsmouth, RI who recently facilitated the sale of my Tartan 34 sailboat. This was the second boat that Alex brokered for me, and in both cases the sale was handled efficiently and professionally. However this latest transaction required a level of patience, professional / legal knowledge and people-skills that made me really appreciate the contribution that a good yacht broker can make. Alex persisted in guiding a challenging, novice buyer through the whole process of arranging for a survey and insurance, all while answering the buyer’s many questions and executing the required legal documentation. When the sale was finally complete, Alex left both the seller (me) and the new boat owner pleased with the deal! Needless to say, I would still own that boat without his extended efforts, so thank you Alex! David Sharp Newport, RI
