Dear Steve, It’s hard to believe it’s already a year since we found the latest “Exclusive” and it caused me to reflect on all the great transactions we done over the past 20 years. Your constant attention and good advice has been invaluable in our pursuit of exactly the right vessel for each stage of our family yachting adventures. Thanks for your patience and support of my favorite pastime.
As someone who has been in the Automobile business for 37 years I know how important it is to take care of customers and very difficult to find people who are committed to their customers . Steve has designed and sold my wife Cindy and I 4 boats . I can say unequivocally that Steve has been involved in the design and production of all our boats his dedication to detail and getting it right is above and beyond and most importantly after delivery he follows up on any issues and will lend his expertise to any issues you may have . I can say without hesitation he is the best most honest salesman , knows his product and cares about his customers. I would not buy a boat new or pre owned from anyone but Steve he is a true gentleman.
Dear Steve , Karen and I just wanted to thank you for all the help you gave us with our Eastbay. Going the extra distance coupled with your experience made the whole process an absolute pleasure. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone shopping for one of these fine boats
Our boat was for sale for almost three years with two different brokers and we did not have one reasonable offer. Steve, took on the listing, changed the presentation on the internet, took great photos at his expense and he sold the boat in TWO WEEKS for a price we would have accepted years before. We were so pleased we asked him to find our next boat and he did a great job representing us on that transaction. We gave his name to friends and he sold their boat quickly as well. We cannot say enough good things about his professionalism, customer service and knowledge of the business. If you are looking to buy or sell, our experience tells us look no further, call Steve!
Although we were the buyers and Steve was the broker for the sellers, he provided substantial help and support in familiarizing my wife and with our new used boat. We really appreciated the time and effort Steve put forth in making our buying experience a good one.
We bought our GB47 Europa from Steve in 2007 and ran it 16,000 miles through the ICW, Bahamas and Gulf of Mexico. Steve advised us on how to outfit the boat and where to go for maintenance. And when we decided to sell the boat earlier this year, Steve created a great listing, marketed the vessel and got us a fair price. Steve is a VERY professional broker and did a fine job for us in every way.
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.
Alicia and I were very happy with the sale experience of our boat, “KARLICIA”. Steve’s use of premium photography resulted in a contract offer even before the ultimate purchaser had seen the vessel, which meant that the process proceeded quickly and smoothly. I can highly recommend Steve to others seeking to buy or sell a boat.
I just wanted to drop you a line and let you know how deeply satisfied my wife and I are with the new yacht. Steve, it was your extra touches that you had changed to the original design that have made the boat so much more enjoyable for us. Whether we are out cruising, on the hook or sitting in port, this is the most enjoyable yacht that we have owned in the 15 years and four boats that we have had in our yachting experience.It has been a pleasure in dealing with you. Thank you.
Steve’s commitment and dedication to Grand Banks over the years has earned him many sales awards including Top Worldwide Salesperson in 2003, 2005 and 2006. Steve has made numerous trips to the factory to ensure he has all the latest information available and to see that his orders are done to his standards prior to shipping. His attention to detail and top level of customer service is proven by his repeat clientele.
During our last 15 years as Florida’s Grand Banks authorized dealer, Steve was always our best sales representative, out-producing all the other brokers at Hal Jones & Co. He knows the boats, he knows the factory – and he knows how to take care of his customers.
Steve is extremely knowledgeable and his follow-up and willingness to assist in every manner is fantastic! The fact that Steve was only the listing broker on this sale did not prevent him from offering full service and I tremendously appreciate his professionalism and personal considerations.HMY is fortunate to have such a high quality yacht broker. Thank you!
