I have dealt with Steve Fithian in buying & selling two boats in past three years.
I found Steve to be a straight shooter who certainly has the contacts & knowledge when it comes to Grand Banks & Eastbay yachts.

I trusted in his judgement & recommendations in selling my 47’ Esatbay F/B followed by locating the one & only 58’ Eastbay F/B, available for sale at the time. He was most helpful in negotiating the purchase & arranging transportation from California to Ft Lauderdale via cargo ship. When it came time to sell my 58’ yacht earlier this year, he was able to find the right buyer & together consummated a favorable deal. I found it a pleasure working with Steve.
