Export Yacht Sales

What our valued and satisfied customers are saying about Export Yacht & Ship

I just closed on a boat with Mike Bill and his team at Export Yacht & Ship. I told him what I wanted in a boat, and he gave me a few options, including the perfect boat for me, 35 Contender. He helped negotiate the price, and once we had a deal, he handled all the details of the sea trial, haul out, and survey, all while keeping me in the loop. Paperwork was amazingly easy with most of it done electronically. At delivery he was there to take the boat with me to its new slip. He even gave me a few pointers. Yes Mike, I know, I will not call the dock lines ropes again. Thanks for everything and I will definitely be recommending Export Yacht & Ship to anyone looking to sell or buy a boat.

As a fairly experienced boater I was confident that I could manage selling and buying my next boat on my own, however I decided to give Export a try because the boat I was selling was located in the Keys and I just didn't have time to deal with running back and forth dealing with tire kickers. Mike was able to find a cash buyer within a week which is rare and quickly resolve the many negotiations that ensued. The biggest surprise came when we were searching for a new boat. I was convinced that I needed a hardcore fishing boat and Mike found us a very lightly used 370 Intrepid set up for fishing and cruising which suited the whole family's needs and turned out to be a smart move. He saved me a huge amount of depreciation. Handled the entire deal through Intrepid to transfer tax savings on the old boat for myself and the seller. Throughout the process Mike was available to deal with the many questions that came up and was a great source of advice based on his many years of experience on the water.

Mike Brill's vast experience in boat quality, value and performance enables his clients to make very educated decisions in buying and selling boats. When you are spending a lot of money in purchasing a boat, or trying to sell a boat, you want to keep the "guess work" at a bare minimum. Without Mike's expertise, buying and selling boats becomes more of a "crapshoot". Aside from his experience and knowledge, one of Mike's best qualities is his ability to figure out what his clients are looking for in a boat. Everyone has different interests, purposes and hobbies, and Mike has an innate ability to identify and understand what his individual client's particular interests are in boating, which enables him to present the best options for his clients. Thank you for helping with my purchase of my 32' Intrepid!

I want to let everyone know how great my experience was in dealing with Export Yacht & Ship and particularly Manny Goomez who handled all aspects of my purchase of a 24' Robalo. He is very knowledgeable, kind and considerate, and went out of his way to make sure that I felt comfortable with everything. He kept me informed throughout the process and he even paid out of his pocket to get the boat washed and detailed at my house after the sale. I recommend that if you are considering purchasing or selling a boat, that you go through Export Yacht & Ship and particularly Manny Gomez.

Mike from Export Yacht & Ship was very professional when he came to me asking if I would sell his client my 2004 Jupiter (I was a private seller on Boat Trader). He did not try to low ball me, he offered me more than a fair price. After the contract was put together, everything went as planned and we closed before the end of the contract which was 10 days. As you meet Mike, he will give you a sense of calm and as the transaction unfolds, you will experience his level of expertise in the yachting industry. Very professional, straight forward and fast. I recommend Export Yacht & Ship for any boat transaction.

Hey Mike, I hope boat sales are brisk for you over there. I checked in with Eddie yesterday to see how he was doing with his 24' Everglades which was purchased through your brokerage. I know when I talked to him some time ago he was rather upset about the damage that occurred to the boat while it was in your yard awaiting shipping. This was his response to me regarding your handling of the damage/repair to the boat: "The boat was repaired and Mike sent me a check to cover repairs. He is a classy guy to do that and he made sure I got the cushions and console cover and trolling motor." Mike I nearly cried, as this is not how deals usually turn out. Previous two dealings with brokers over there did not have this happy ending and in fact left a bitter taste in my customers' mouths. So, you obvsiously had good parenting or something. Let me know if I can do anything for you over here.

All the best,

Thank you Export Yacht & Ship for assisting me with trading my 2012 Robalo 305 on a 2010 Everglades 350LX. I didn't want to be a two boat owner, and you went out of your way to make this the easiest boat transaction I have ever done. I will be sure to contact you when I am ready to move up again!

Wow! The easiest and most spectacular, professional transaction in our lives. Incredible service, knowledge and reliability from start to finish with Mike Brill and his staff. We have purchased and owned over 10 vessels since 1995 including Intrepids and Bertrams from the factory and nothing compares to the service we received with Export Yacht Sales and their staff, we truly are extremely satisfied! Thank you!

I upgraded from a 29' Cobalt to a 37' Intrepid. Export Yacht Sales was relentless in helping me find the perfect boat and selling my old boat. Their knowledge of boats is unmatched!

Dear Mike,

Thanks so much for handling the Purchase of our new 41' Morgan Sailboat "Morning Dance". You went way beyond the call of duty, adapting to our tight schedule when necessary, and exhibiting a wonderful professionalism even when a few speed bumps appeared in the closing process. We look forward to using you in the future for both buying and selling boats.

Export Yacht Sales has sold 2 boats for me. Both sales were handled timely and professionally, which I find unusual in today's world. I found Mike Brill to be very easy to work with and extremely accommodating. I could not have more pleased.

This past summer my husband and I decided it was time to sell our Morgan Ketch. The process seemed complicated since we have kept the boat full time in Abaco, Bahamas for the past 8 years and saw little way of networking her into the US market.

Having made our connection with Mike Brill at Export Yacht Sales, the process was soon underway. Mike collected all the information he needed to market our boat and within weeks contacted us with a possible buyer.

Since the boat was still in Abaco, Mike made arrangements to personally fly his clients over for a "look see" and by the end of that day we had a contract on our boat. Export Yacht Sales handled every part of this transaction in a professional manor and we have recently recommended this firm to our friends. On a personal note, we want to thank Mike and the rest of the folks at Export Yacht Sales for helping us find new owners for our beloved ketch.

I would like to say some words of appreciation to all the help Export Yacht Sales provided me when they sold me my two Hatteras Sport fisherman, "Grumpy" and "Hawkeye". Thanks for an accurate evaluation of the boats, assistance with everything from the survey, to shipping as well as all the extra paperwork created by the bureaucracy here in Portugal. I could not have purchased my boats without Export Yacht Sales.

Export Yacht Sales acted on my behalf to secure and export my Mastercraft 280sts to Australia. Mike acted very professionally throughout the transaction and looked after my interests as a priority. I would, and have already, recommend Export Yacht Sales to anyone seeking an honest dependable service.

I want to thank Export Yacht Sales which was very helpful in finding, surveying, and shipping two boats to The Balcans for me. I look forward to purchasing some more boats for them in the future.

P.S. If you have any clients in Serbia or a neighboring country interested in purchasing a boat, please have them call me.

It was a pleasure working with you on both the sale of my Hydra-Sports 2600 and the purchase of my new⬝ Contender 25. You were always available to discuss any issue that arose during both transactions and your experience and advice made both deals simple to close. Thanks for your help. See you on the water.

My boat arrived safely in Maputo, Mozambique.  It is very good and clean.  I was impressed with how light it is on fuel.  While there are imitation boats from South Africa, people are admiring the fittings, knobs, lockers, etc.  All people admire the boat in my club, and some are asking about your reference.  I think is first American boat in Maputo.  I told them about Export Yacht Sales and you should be sending more boats here soon.
Thanks for your help,

I recently purchased a 1991 26' Shamrock Predator Diesel from Export Yacht Sales. Paul O. was an exceptional salesman who only wanted to help me make the purchase. From being truthful and available any time I had a question, to delivering the boat to my home this was the best purchase experience that I've had in my 40 year boating career. He and Curt his associate made the sale a breeze. THANK YOU!

Thank you Export Yacht Sales for assisting us with the purchase of our 52’ Fairline Targa! They worked with our broker to make the process of purchasing our boat as easy as possible.  I highly recommend Mike and his company if you are looking to purchase a yacht.
