and I bought "Swizzle" (as she was then named) with Southwest
Florida Yachts acting as a "buyer's broker" and it has turned out to
be one of the best buys we have made. With their broker and captain
arranging the sea trial and survey, and working out the contracts,
we were assured of an accurate assessment of her condition and a
fair price. Then because we were still several years from retirement
we put the newly renamed "Sojourner" back into the charter fleet,
which also has proved to be a very good move. She helps pay her own
way, she is in much better shape than she would be if she were
sitting in a slip near home, waiting for us to retire, and through
her log we get to vicariously share the adventures of many other
sailors aboard her. Great deal for all!

"Don't become emotionally attached
to a boat until you own it", was the sage advice of Dick Bennett of
Southwest Florida Yachts shortly after I engaged the services of
their brokerage team in pursuit of the perfect yacht. My daughter,
Deirdre, and I had just completed a one week live-a-board powerboat
course through their affiliated school and we so thoroughly enjoyed
the experience that I decided to take the next step and become a
yacht owner. With very little boating experience behind me I soon
came to appreciate the practical knowledge and endless patience that
Dick possesses. He not only spent many hours on late night telephone
calls to New York walking me through the process and telling me,
with remarkable prescience, what I could expect; but even provided
the champagne when it came time to christen "La Niña".
In between there were a series of highs and lows which Dick handled
with aplomb and good humor encouraging me to do the same. Having
interviewed other brokers prior to settling on Southwest Florida
Yachts and having spoken to other owners who have gone through this
process, I have come to realize that Dick and the team at Southwest
Florida are in a class by themselves.
