  • Thanks Robin.  You might like my follow up to this post:

"I was living in Minneapolis and asked a friend (who had completed a seven year circumnavigation in their sailboat) for the name of a boat broker to help me find the "sailboat of my dreams". Without reservation they recommended Tom Harney of Jordan Yachts. The search and comparisons of a variety of boats produced the perfect boat for me. After the closing, Tom shared his time and marine contacts which were invaluable making the boat my own. I enjoyed four years of live-aboard sailing but when the t came time to sell the boat there wasn't any question that I would list the boat with Tom Harney. The video produced to sell my boat featured music, voice, and photography of professional quality and it attracted buyers from several states. I frequently use the words "above and beyond" to describe the high level of customer service I received by Tom Harney and Jordan Yachts." - AH SV DAKOTA
