My wife and I purchased a yacht seven years ago, January 2013 and our broker was John Kuony. We had not worked with other brokers prior to buying this yacht, so we had no idea how exceptional John would prove to be not only during the purchase process but ever since. John's experience makes him the perfect "go to" guy should we have any question regarding our yacht covering a broadscale from trouble shooting a simple fix to navigating replacement parts and finding qualified third party experts to address electronics, refrigeration,rigging and engine maintenance. We have always felt welcome to reach out to John for anything and he has always immediately responded to each and every inquiry. John has proven to be more than just someone who sold a person a boat. He has become family.
John sifted through a wide variety of yachts to insure he found us the yacht of our dreams.
A Great Purchase and a Great Sale
A few years ago, my wife and I wanted to move up to a larger and better sailboat in Alameda, California. We were fortunate to meet John Kuony who was selling boats at a brokerage in Alameda and it was like meeting a new friend. John’s knowledge and demeanor was just what we needed as there are a lot of things that can go wrong during the purchase of a six figure yacht. John showed us several boats and was very patient with us through the process. John helped us purchase an amazing Beneteau 423 and guided us through the survey, haul out, and proper documentation process of buying.
When it became time to sell our Beneteau, we knew exactly who to talk to and John sold our boat very quickly and got us a great deal. The buyer was also very pleased and felt very comfortable with this whole process. We remain in contact with John to this day and we hope to visit John and Jeanine in their new home in Maine.
