Dear John - I wanted to extend my gratitude to you for the exceptional level of service, support and assistance during the purchase of our 42' Hunter Passage, "Uncorked" (under the new name). It was a pleasure working with you during a very busy time of the year, which presented some additional challenges that were easily overcome due to your diligence and consistent communication. You provided a level of professionalism and expertise that allowed us to keep on track with the details of the transaction and purchase of the yacht. You have a great sense of the customer’s needs and you were always ready to provide alternative ideas and solutions to the many different decisions we confronted throughout the process.
Cathy and I really appreciate the time and energy you dedicated during the entire process to ensure our needs were met. You truly exceeded our expectations and we would recommend your services to anyone looking to purchase or sell a boat. Most of all, I feel a real re-connection with the boating industry and look forward to sharing our much-anticipated boating journey's with you. Great seeing you on the SF Bay, keep in touch. Thank you for making our yacht search and purchase of Uncorked a wonderful experience.
I met John Kuony in 2007 in San Francisco as I started my search for my first sailboat. I knew nothing other than the basics learned in 3 sailing certifications at a local sailing school. I feel extremely fortunate to have benefited from John’s many decades of sailing experience. John held my hand (metaphorically) through the entire process from selecting new vs used, make, length and features. We ended up with the perfect boat for a beginner a new 2007 Jeanneau 39i. Purchasing the boat was only the beginning, John continued to provide constant support after the sale. John actually spent hours with me at West Marine to help select every item I would need to outfit the boat and start sailing. John frequently organized trips to Santa Cruz and was “always” available to answer sailing questions. John also helped me sell the boat 4 years later and remains a friend today and I expect for many years to come. I “may” be getting the sailing bug again and would NEVER consider reaching out to anyone other than John for help.
