Testimonial: 2000 Catalina 470

Customer: Preston I. Perrone

“My first contact with Massey Yacht Sales & Service was in the year 2000 when my wife and I inquired about chartering sailboats through their Sun Sail franchise. After a few charters, we began a search for a boat of our own.

A Massey yacht specialist, Al Pollak, assisted us in finding an older yacht that needed TLC. We spent the next few years catching up on deferred maintenance and upgrading the vessel, always checking with Al whenever a serious expenditure was at hand. He and his associates always helped by sharing their knowledge and experience.

After the Covid-19 pandemic, we set out to replace our boat with a larger, part-time live-aboard vessel, and researched the Catalina 470 and 445. We contacted Ed Massey and found that his knowledge of the Catalina product line and history was impressively thorough … a dominant factor in our understanding of both boats. We purchased a 2000 Catalina 470 with Ed Massey was the listing broker and salesman.

I have known the Massey Yacht Sales and Service organization for 23 years and have found it to be comprised of honest, competent and dedicated yacht professionals. I would recommend them to my family and best friends.”
