"Tom Harney and Jordan Yacht and Ship Co MADE OUR SALE. They positioned our Hylas 45.5 Sloop, "Wild Hair," in the world’s epicenter of sailboat sales, coached us in readying the boat, stored the dinghy and other bulky items offsite, produced a top-notch sales video, and—within a month—found our buyer. Then, when the survey revealed thorny deal-killers, they protected our “bottom line” by helping pull exhaust hoses, re-bed deck fittings, and changing lifelines. Since our previous listing agent was a passive paper pusher, we never dreamed a brokerage would work so hard!" - Heather & Dave Mann, Hylas 45.5 SV Wild Hair
