We recently purchased a 2019 Beneteau Swift 44 trawler from Castaways. From start to finish the process was an exceptionally efficient and pleasant experience. The sales team, led by Christian Brabender, was nothing short of outstanding as they helped us: 1) line up an outstanding group of marine surveyors (one for the engines – Precision Marine – and one for the rest of the yacht – Jim Diaz) to inspect our trawler prior to purchase 2) work up the vessel purchase agreement, 3) sort out the warranty transfers, and 4) conduct pre-sale maintenance prior to delivery. In short, Castaways did everything right, ensuring all was in order prior to closing the deal and our taking ownership. Special shout out to the owner Bill for taking the extra-time to make us feel at home as we spent several days at Castaways getting oriented to our new yacht before shoving off to its new home in Virginia. Lastly a big shout out to Captain Greg Thornton for helping me safely navigate the waters of the Sound, East River, NY Harbor, the Atlantic, Delaware Bay-River, Delaware-Chesapeake Canal, Chesapeake Bay and up the Potomac to Prince William Marine. Greg you are the MAN!
