Al Pollak is the top yacht broker in Florida for good reason. Having worked with several brokers over the years, it took a while for me to understand that my expectations were completely out of sync with what. Al was really going to do. The difference was not in looking at boats for sale, but rather in the time we spent discussing individual boats and the yacht market in general. Al was brutally honest in giving us the facts about selling our old boat, and an absolute wealth of knowledge and experience in looking for the new one. When we made an offer on a boat in Mobile, Al took two days to drive up for the survey and sea trial. And it turns out we were not an exception. Give Al a call and he will often tell you that he is in St Augustine, Miami, or some other corner of the world looking at a boat for a prospective buyer. A year after purchasing our Catalina 470, Al continues to be a consistent and reliable source of information for us. Knowing that we were looking for a new dinghy, Al gave us a call when he found a dealer in Miami that wanted to clear some inventory at a good price. Working with Al is not just a way to look at boats for sale, but hooking into the boating business from the inside.
