Customer: Anne and Terry Polkinghome
Searching for our “retirement boat”, we found that the viewing opportunities for a ~40′ Catalina limited in Ontario, so we contacted Massey Yachts in Florida. Kelly responded that he’d be willing to show us the selection & arranged for a factory tour. He listened to our shopping list & we looked at a few boats – we thought that retirement was 18 months away.
On a subsequent trip (after the retirement date shortened by a year) we specifically looked at 38′, 40′ & 42′ sloops & narrowed our selection to the Catalina 400. Kelly explained the bidding / purchasing process & Florida tax implications for foreign-flagged vessels. We reached a conditional offer & once the marine survey / sea trial passed &a the deal closed, Kelly helped us arrange for upgrades & summer storage at a local boatyard. He was constantly available & very helpful through out our search for the right boat.
I’d have no hesitation working with Kelly again & recommend that serious buyers contact him to find their boat. Anne & Terry, Sudbury, Ont. Canada
