Let our clients tell you why MPYS
I have just purchased a 2007 34′ Pursuit through Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales and their broker, Ralph Maula. For several months I worked with Ralph looking at and sometimes even surveying four different vessels. Problems included water in the hulls and engine issues. Items only a surveyor could detect. It took several months to find the right boat. Ralph and MPYS owner, Tom Whittington, stayed the course and were absolutely wonderful to work with . Their knowledge, courtesy, and the time they spent with me to find my Dream Boat could not have been better. This relationship was the very best one could expect.Gary Brookins, Stuart, FL
As newcomers to Florida, we were looking for a center console boat for fishing and cruising. We live near the Manatee Pocket where we met Captain Steve Hedrick. We cannot say enough about his professional service and courtesy. He went far beyond the normal service working every day to find boats on the market, check pricing, availability, location, setting up computer sessions for us each day. The boat we wanted was low in supply and strong in demand. Captain Hedrick accompanied us to the boat show, and to every boat we wanted to see. His experience became not only useful, but came to be relied on for counsel and direction. After more than a week of searching, he found a boat that matched our desires. His service did not stop with the closing. We had a long distance on the ICW and he met us after dark, in the rain, to make sure we made port safely. If you are searching for a boat, this is the man you need.

Recently bought a Marine Trader 34′ through Manatee Packet Yacht Sales and their broker Terry Stoupa. It was a great experience to deal with such professionals and caring people. They go above and beyond what would normally be expected. Not only are they concerned about the seller but the buyer is also the centre of their preoccupations. If you have a boat to buy, do yourself a favour and use Manatee Pocket Yacht sales services to do so.

I recently purchased a 26 Boston Whaler from Manatee Pocket. Simply put Tom, Ralph and the team made the experience as care free as possible. Their level of professionalism and positive attitude is extremely difficult to find in this business. I live in San Juan Puerto Rico and was only able to see the boat for a few hours in a last minute trip down to Ft. Lauderdale. They took care of every detail with absolutely no unexpected charges or last minute changes; they kept me completely up to date on every small detail of the transaction and even the delivery of the vessel. If I ever considered trading up I would definitely do business with Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales again and encourage anybody to give you guys a call and trust their purchase to you. Thank you for a 100% satisfactory experience.

Tom thank you for all your help we received whilst purchasing our boat out of America. Your honesty and professionalism was very reassuring for us in Australia, and appreciated all your advice and help in transport from NJ to shipping terminal, repainting of hull, organising custom cover and storage. Our boat arrived safely in Western Australia and was just as you described it. I would recommend you to anyone in Australia looking at buying a boat without hesitation or reservation.

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 shape and I have taken her outside and she is an excellent sailing Yawl. I will recommend Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales to any of my friends and acquaintances who are looking to purchase a yacht. Thanks again!Stacy Jackson, Ft. Pierce, FL
I would like to give Tom and Ralph a big thanks for helping with the purchase of my 241 Pro Line. After a few failed attempts due to miss information from other sellers and dealers, I was introduced to Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales. My broker, Ralph, found a boat that was exactly what I was after. Both of the guys did more than is expected of any broker to get the sale and make everything go as smooth as possible. I would strongly recommend to anyone who is purchasing a boat, especially importing to another country, to have the sale go through Manatee Pocket Yacht Sales. The guys are very thorough and leave no stone unturned. I will be strongly suggesting to everyone purchasing a boat in the US to deal with no one else. Thanks guys. Hope to see you in OZ soon.
