Recently we decided to sell our 70 year old John Alden sloop and get something bigger and better suited to our social sailing lifestyle, so we listed her with two brokers in Manly and one in Scarborough. After months of inactivity we were made aware of Euan at Australiawide Boat Sales. Euan kept working with us to sell the boat when other brokers stopped.Euan also introduced us to “Whimborn” a Roberts 36 in a very charming yellow color! The decision was made to buy the Roberts (and new sunglasses) so we signed up as full members of the “Two-Boat club”.
It took another two months before the perfect buyer for Irex came along but we were too busy renovating the new boat and keeping Irex up to scratch to worry about having two vessels. Euan then proceeded to sell Irex and it could not have been better handled. The Roberts is the 23rd boat my husband has owned and he tells me that Irex was the only boat he has sold that has not caused any anxiety. As for the other three brokers with whom Irex was listed they were no bother either as we never heard from them!Our experience with both buying and selling boats has brought us into contact with many yacht-brokers over the years.
We have been very impressed with how Euan and his team at Australiawide Boat Sales go about their business and will happily recommend their services as both buyers and sellers.
