Dear Sirs,

I can't tell you how happy I am with my new (used) 29 foot Donzi ZF. My experience with Golden Gate Boat Sales was amazing. From the moment I met Jerry, I considered him a friend. Throughout the process of looking for a boat, Jerry always placed my best interest and what would be right for me first. There was never any "sales pressure". It was an absolute pleasure working with Jerry and Golden Gate Boat Sales!!!

Hi Jerry,

I hope that you are doing great! Thank you for the tremendous job you did for my family. I thought selling my boat was going to be difficult but you made it easy. You managed to find the perfect buyer for our pontoon boat and negotiate the sale in less than 12 hours. What I thought would be the easy part, replacing it with a lightly used center console, turned into a lot of research and fact finding with all kinds of sellers. You were an incredible resource and consultant. You have endless patience and I always felt like finding the right boat was most important to you, not just getting a deal done. Your work ethic is unparalleled, it's no wonder why you have been sucessful for so many years. Thanks Jerry for helping me and my family find the perfect boat! I look forward to working with you again.

All the Best,

Jerry -

You get the "WALKING ON WATER AWARD" for a TOTALLY OUTSTANDING job on the listing!!! The boat description, the pictures, and expecially the video are all first class and extremely well done. And it's hard to believe you were able to complete it overnight. A "tip of the hat and a low bow" to you and your GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES crew for the terrific effort. (This Boat Sold within 7 Days of Listing it for sale with GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES)

Dear Sirs,

It was such a pleasure to work with Jerry. He was professional throughout the process, arranging an amazingly detailed video tour of the boat to save us a drive across the sate for our sea trial. He was candid, aboveboard, and responsive. Well after we closed (on time and without drama), Jerry was consistently available to answer questions and help us get the most out of our boat.

If you're looking for an honest and organized professional to sell your boat, Jerry's your man. If you're looking for a boat and happen to find one that you like in Jerry's care, you're in for a good experience!

Sincerely,

Hi Jerry,

Again it was a great experience having you list and sell my boat in record time, from listing to a signed offer in under 24 hours!! Also sold for the number I was hoping for, super smooth transaction, from the offer, to the sea trial, to the closing. Couldn't be happier with your professionalism! This is our third deal and I'm sure I'll be using you again in the future. Thanks!

Sincerely,

Jerry,

I wanted to thank you for all of your help and expertise in negotiating the recent purchase of my C & C 40 Aft Cabin Sailboat. I have owned a number of boats and have always dealt through a Broker...none that would approach your service and professionalism in this transaction. I could not be more pleased or thankful for all of your help and advise. You can be sure that when "Summer Winds" is for sale that you will be my Broker. I think that you are a man of integrity and a credit to the Yachting Community!

Sincerely,

John Hansbrough

Dear Jerry,

Thank you for working around the clock to ensure we found the exact boat we were looking for and making the buying process so easy! Your boat knowledge is endless, which really helped us avoid buying the dud in Georgia and ensured us we bought a quality boat. You were extremely personable and reliable and held our hands through our first large boat purchase. Your dedication to our search effort landed us our dream boat and we would recommend you to anyone looking to buy a boat!

Sincerely,

Good Morning Jerry,

It was a pleasure to know you and work with you in the sale of my Sea Ray. Your professionalism and integrity was a pleasant surprise. You provided an accurate market analysis of my boat. The photos, video and marketing of my boat was extraordinary! Your accessibility and feedback provided my Sea Ray for a flawless sale. As a result my boat sold in less than three weeks! Congratulations Jerry. I wish you much success as President of GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES.

Sincerely,

Dear Sirs,

My wife and I contacted Jerry at GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES in regards to a boat we saw online, our very first purchase of a larger sized vessel. We met with Jerry who directed us to the right place for financing and the marine survey as well. Jerry informed us of all the features of the Sea Ray 290 Sundancer. We went on a great sea trial run and immediately fell in love with the boat. After deciding this was the boat for us and with Jerry's expertise and help, we came up with an offer which we felt was fair to both parties. Jerry then hooked us up with the finance team who put together an incredible deal. For this we could not thank them enough. Overall, everyone played a key role in making this a smooth and actually enjoyable boat buying experience. I could not thank each and everyone of them enough. Especially Jerry who without none of this would be possible. Both my wife and I would not hesitate at all in recommending GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES to anyone of our friends or family who would be looking for a boat in the future.

Sincerely,

What can we say about Jerry at Golden Gate Boat Sales? He's AWESOME!

My husband and I are from Canada and we were a bit apprehensive about purchasing a boat in the US...we wanted a good deal but didn't know anything about buying in a different country. I came across a lovely little Bayliner and found Jerry...from then on it was all smooth sailing!

When I first shot him an email, his response time was within a few minutes! This was the trend for the entire process. Jerry is a professional, knowledgeable and just an all around friendly cool guy. Without him, the deal would not have ran so smoothly! I really felt like he had our back...he was always there for us. He also had all the right connections and resources!

We love our new boat and we look back on the entire process in such a positive light! The sea trial was so much fun, and we got to meet his lovely partner, Tatiana, who came along for the ride. That day was quite memorable, and we'll never forget the good omen of the dolphin jumping in our wake!

We have nothing but wonderful things to say about Jerry and Golden Gate Boat Sales. I can't even think about ever selling our boat, but in the future if we ever look at another one, he'll be hearing from us!

Thanks so much Jerry for all of your help. We are elated!

Dear Jerry and Sam,

We have never bought a boat off-line before without first seeing it in person. Teresa and I were extremely happy to see that the 2008, HURRICANE GS-202 was exactly has you described at your Featured Listings page and over the telephone. Thank you for working it out so that we were able to inspect and sea trial on a Saturday and take the boat back home that same day! We will reccommend GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES to any of our boating friends looking to buy a turn-key boat from a highly professional Yacht & Ship Brokerage.

Dear Jerry,

Thank you very much for your help with our purchase of the Wellcraft 32 Scarab. You have gone above and beyond! All of your continued updates have been amazing and greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Jerry,

I appreciate the speed you found my new boat, the price negotiations and the efficient closing. Your accessibility and follow up is outstanding, it's nice getting returned phone calls and emails after hours and on weekends. The sale of my previous boat, which you handled a few months ago went equally as well. Thanks for your help with the purchase of my PATHFINDER 2400V and I will use you in the future for any buying or selling.

Thanks Again,

Jerry:

Thanks so much for handling the sale of my 2007 Cobia 214 Center Console. It was a very fast sale with multiple buyers in just a few days. Your advertising on the web was very professional and the pictures were perfect. Your recommendation to call the mechanic Mike was an absolute plus in making this deal come together as he did a great job in making sure everything was working properly on the boat as it should for your buyers. I would recommend your services to anyone.

You sent me a boat market evaluation on my boat, created an extremely professional listing page with photos and video and sold my boat in just a few weeks at a very fair price.

Dear Jerry:

Jerry now that my boat has arrived I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for your enormous assistance with the purchase. Being over 3,400 miles away from the boat I felt a little apprehensive about dealing on the boat however you organized an excellent marine surveyor to review and sea trial the boat, a captain to transport the boat to the haul out location and coordinated all of those involved for me. Now this was not an expensive boat, however I know that when I am in the market for one, I have trustworthy friend in Naples Florida who will look out for me and my boat.

Thanks for all your help Jerry!

Good Morning Jerry:

You listed my 2002 Rinker Fiesta Vee and SOLD it in just four days at exactly the price you told me it would sell at, I'm impressed! Your professional photography and virtual walk-thru page that GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES created on my boat was so impressive, I wanted to buy the boat myself. I'll be contacting you in the near future when I'm ready to make my next boat purchase. In the meantime, keep up the excellent work!

Jerry:

I can't say enough good things regarding our boat purchase. From the initial offer, through negotiations, inspection, sea trial to final closing and delivery to shipper - all was handled exceptionally. I even received my closing papwerwork so quickly I had time to register the boat before it was delivered. I thought buying a boat long distance was going to be extremely challenging but everone at GOLDEN GATE BOAT SALES helped make it a painless process. Please thank your Captain Doug Howard for me to for helping out with the boat delivery. Thanks for the personal attention and I hope to make it down to Florida to thank you in person one day.

Hi Jerry,

I just wanted to thank you one more time for the great help you were for us purchasing the Sea Ray boat. The boat arrived in Helsinki, I was there receiving it, on July 22nd and was in great condition, just as you had told us. I'm back in the US, but my brother is enjoying the boating in the lakes of Finland. All the best to you! I wish you continued success with Golden Gate Boat Sales, keep up the great work!

Dear Jerry,

I wanted to follow up with a personal note of thanks for your professionalism. When making a major purchase there is much apprehensiveness. I do appreciate the manner in which you kept the commitments we agreed upon.

Best Wishes,


Rob Foote


Dear Jerry,

Thank for the timely professional showing. It is a pleasure to work with some one who cares about their work. Your listings on the web are exceptional and the courtesy you showed with the follow up is unparalleled in our industry. My client liked the boat very much except for the size of the cockpit. When we looked at the other 308 it had a larger cockpit with a slightly different layout and however no walk around on the gunnels. She will be making her mind up soon. I will let you know.

Thanks Keith
