In 2007 Dick Waterhouse joined Brewer Yacht Sales after 25 years in new boat sales. Representing both power and sail brands such as Island Packet, Tartan, Grand Banks, and Sabreline provided Dick with product knowledge not readily available online. Access to manufacturing and design personnel at the factories offered Dick unique knowledge of build quality, performance, and features of each brand. These details help guide clients to the vessel best suited to their lifestyle and budget.
As owner of a Tartan 33 in Mystic, CT he learned firsthand what prospective buyers need to consider. To challenge himself, he volunteered with the Clearwater organization for 3 months aboard the 100-ton class schooner “Voyager” as a deck hand and then First Mate. That opportunity honed his ability to handle any boat in any condition while sharing his passion for boating with people of all ages.
Buying and/or selling a boat is a business process. Dick Waterhouse’s contractual knowledge protects both buyer and seller during the sale. His negotiating skills bring parties to common ground, mechanical expertise facilitates anticipation/resolution of survey issues, and his commitment to YBAA ethics is unwavering. Integrity is what Dick’s repeat customers value most about his professional ethic.
