When I first met Derek, of V.I. Powerboat, he came to me to view & evaluated my boat. He took plenty of pictures and also incorporated a video online of our boat, on the water, which I believe assists potential buyers. He had positive input about the boat, took notes, got it listed on his web site as well utilizing various other web media ads. Derek brought plenty of interest to view the boat which other larger yacht brokers I had previously listed the boat with…could not. V.I. Powerboat Ltd. charges less commission, follows up by phone or email keeping you updated with present activity of your boat, again past yacht brokers I listed with, assured me the same services however never came to fruition. Derek displayed great pride in his work by reassuring both the vendor as well as the buyer complete satisfaction at the date of our closing.
Thanks Derek, you got my boat SOLD.
I recently purchased a boat through V.I. Powerboat. The broker was very responsive to my needs. I was able to view the boat promptly and the transaction went smoothly and was handled in an efficient and professional manner. A few days after I purchased my new boat I listed my old boat with V.I. Powerboat. The next day Derek came over to the house and took pictures of the boat. At that time we discussed the terms of the deal and drafted a sales agreement. That night the ad was up and running.The next morning we received an offer and subsequently sold the boat the following day. Can’t ask for much more than that.
Thanks Derek. I enjoyed doing business with you and appreciate the top notch service.
Hi Derek: We want to express our thanks for the time you spent with us last Tuesday showing Pacific Dream.While the vessel is not one which we wish to purchase, it isn’t because of any deficiency on your part.Your presentation of the boat was factual, and without any of the “gloss” that some brokers seem to think necessary; we were confident that you were giving us the information we needed to make a good decision.For this we’re grateful, and should you have another trawler listing in the future, perhaps we’ll be able to do business.
Hi my name is Rod and I recently used V.I Powerboat to sell my boat.
My experience can only be described as excellent. The sales person was quick to respond to all my questions and prompt to show up for meetings. The day he came to take pictures of my boat he was on time and respectful of my wishes. He took detailed pictures from all angles inside and out. When posting my boat details online his descriptions were very detailed and professional. When it came to sea trails he was very understanding of my needs as well as the perspective clients. In the end the results spoke for themselves, after only one week (only days before Christmas, a very difficult time of the year to sell a boat) my boat sold. I couldn’t be more pleased with the services I received from Van Isle Powerboat and would highly recommend them.
V.I. Powerboat: After finding an ad for a boat we contacted Derek. All calls where promptly returned. He answered all questions that were asked honestly. He made arrangements to see the boat and he was present for all of the interactions with the owner. We inspected the boat and it was exactly what we were looking for. After a test run he helped us get a great deal on a well maintained boat! We are recommending Derek for an honest boat broker to all of our friends!!
Thanks for the great service.
