We would like to highly recommend Andy Kniffin and AK Yachts Sales.
We have known Andy since 2002. He was our broker when we sold our second boat a 52′ Highstar and then helped us design, build and order our third yacht a 66′ Symbol.
Andy was there every step of the way through the ordering process and commissioning. After taking possession in 2004, he was always available to answer our numerous questions. During our eleven years of owning the Symbol, he steered us to various marine services from titling and registration, to standard maintenance, to dockage. Because of his vast knowledge of boat services in the area, he could always recommend the right people.
Last year when we were ready to sell our boat, we entrusted it to AK Yachts. Because the boat was docked behind our house during the sales process, we were expecting it to be a hassle. Andy made the process easy for us. He made sure we were informed before each showing and took every precaution to preserve our privacy. When we received an acceptable offer he walked us through the sales process and paperwork.
We consider Andy a trusted friend and have every confidence in recommending him as your full-service yacht broker.
I am more than pleased to offer Andy my personal endorsement respecting his yacht brokering skills, etc. To any new or used, yacht buyer or seller, I can attest to Andy Kniffin’s exceptional integrity, professionalism, legal astuteness, meticulousness, and promptness – all required attributes of a first class yacht broker in my view. And finally, I consider Andy my friend!
I am very pleased to write up this testimonial for Andy Kniffin of AK Yachts in Florida, USA. I live in Singapore and I only came to know Andy from his company website whilst I was searching for a boat to purchase. After getting in contact with him, I had been talking to him for more than a year before making the purchase of the boat which we love very much through him.
I find Andy a very patient and understanding yacht broker who listens and tried his utmost effort to find you a boat which meets your requirements. He listened to our requirements and have recommended a few boats to us for our review.
Andy has also shown an unwavering dedication in his work and service and had always executed his tasks and duties with sobering promptness and efficiency. I have also find him hardworking, perfectly conscientious, trustworthy and willing to offer his time, help and assistance more than what is required of a yacht broker. Even several months after we have purchased the boat, Andy is still in constant contact with us checking how we are going with the boat and have offered his assistance to us in case of any need.
We are very pleased with all the service and assistance rendered to us on the purchase of the 74′ Halverson motor yacht (which we love!) and I would not hesitate to recommend Andy Kniffin to any other potential boat buyers as I am sure you will be very pleased with his service.
We first contacted Andy Kniffin in November 2013 about a Symbol Motoryacht he had listed and we were impressed with his knowledge for the brand. He had sold the boat we called on, so we engaged him to find us the boat which best fit our needs. We have owned a number of boats and worked with a number of boat brokers over the past forty years, but I have never experienced a boat broker that was more knowledgeable, diligent, and helpful than Andy. He found our perfect match of a 58′ Symbol in January 2015 and it was worth the wait. Although this made us a two boat owner, we were confident in Andy’s ability and he sold our former boat within a couple of months. We would highly recommend Andy without reservation to anyone.
