  • Just want to take a moment to express my sincere thanks and appreciation for the tremendous job done by Lee Bowden. He was extremely professional and so helpful in all aspects of the purchase. I am an out of state buyer and he made everything simple and painless. He went way out of his way to make the sale happen and was extremely helpful in lining up all the loose ends that I need to get the boat ship shape and ready to ship. Thanks again Lee...

  • Lee Bowden and Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales sold my boat with no effort for me. The advertising was great and Lee was available to meet prospective buyers. The boat sold within a few months and Lee took care of all the paperwork; I just had to sign and get paid. I would recommend Manatee Packet Yacht Sales to anyone who wants to sell their boat with an effortless process. Thanks to all the staff for a great job.

  • I met Tom Whittington after I searched online for a local boat broker to sell my boat. After I met Tom, I knew he was the guy for the job. His polite and businesslike manner speaks volumes. He stuck with me through a lengthy process and represented the entire transaction with integrity and was helpful to both me and the buyer. Furthermore, after I met Tom during this transaction, anytime that I have brought his name up in conversation, people ...

  • Allan Goode is more than good. His last name should be Goodest! Having been in the Boat Brokerage business myself, I can assure you that Al will arrange to show only those boats that he believes will not only meet your desires but boats that are seaworthy. We purchased a 43 foot Motor Yacht using Al as our Broker. Too many words usually define nothing. I simply say that Al Goode is the man to work with if you want to go to bed without worrying...

  • Tom, I just wanted to thank you for assisting me in purchasing the 22 Pathfinder that you had as a broker. Based on the description of the boat, the seller and you, I felt comfortable doing my own inspection.

    Richard Appell, Venice, FL

  • Tom, I know we have said before, but we can't be emphatic enough with how happy we are with your role and (Howie Collins) services in completing this transaction.  I don't know if you heard Bobbi the last day we were in your office, but she leaned over and said, 'Don't worry, Greg, Tom will work things out. He always does.' Now you have made believers out of us as well. You said early on, each deal has a life of i...

  • I have known Tom Whittington for many years and have dealt with Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales on a couple of different occasions. Most recently I purchased a 39' Mako Walkaround from Tom through Ralph Maula. Ralph knew the boat and the engines and was very helpful with his technical and user information on this type of boat and was instrumental in negotiating a mutual agreeable price. They directed me to a very knowledgeable surveyor and...

    Mark Carleton, Stuart, FL

  • Recently, I had the pleasure of dealing with Mr. Tom Whittington of Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales. He and his staff treated me in a friendly and very professional manor. The deal was for an older Trawler that had several issues that created some very unusual problems. I was a buyer from out of state and my first contact was by telephone. The vessel was sold via an estate sale, we had several paperwork problems. Tom and his staff worked ...

  • Just want to extend a big THANK YOU for helping me achieve my dream of owning a Sail Boat. I found that the folks at Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales were very professional and helpful! Both of the yachts that you recommended were of good quality and also were excellent deals. The yacht purchase and the accompanying details went very smoothly thanks to Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales’ staff. The yacht that I purchased (Nemesis) was in very good sha...

    Stacy Jackson, Ft. Pierce, FL

  • Tom, I want to thank both you and Ralph for helping me sell my boat last month. As you know, I’d had it for sale on a popular website for a couple of months attempting to sell it on my own and became a bit frustrated as I never truly knew whether the prospective buyer was qualified or not. Fortunately, you were able to bring a qualified buyer much quicker than I anticipated and the transaction went without a hitch. The level of service a...
