Top 5 Tips In Buying Catamarans by Gary Fretz
Sitting here this morning with a cup of coffee doing some reminiscing. Looking back a few years now, when I started to consider the real possibility of taking on a completely new lifestyle, living and traveling by sea. I had watched many, many videos of people actually doing what I had planned. Gary may remember the young couple Ryan and Jessica the purchased a lagoon catamaran and made videos with Gary about using a broker. And another couple, Jason and Nikki Wynns, who have a 2005 43' Leopard. Very Inspiring video blog stories about traveling the world. I enjoy keeping up with their adventures even now. All this lengthy explanation just to say thanks for helping make my experience of a lifetime happen. I don't regret a minute of it!!!
I cannot adequately express how much I appreciate your contribution to the Castle Harbor racing clinics. The combination of rules and tactics discussions as well as video documentation have greatly improved my understanding of the sport. Until your arrival, quality training was limited to us fortunate few who sail regularly with Taylor Larimore. You have made top notch instruction from a world class sailor available to all attendees.
While pleasant weather, hotdogs and beer have helped improve attendance on Saturdays, I feel strongly that your presence is the real draw. I can remember when Castle Harbor YouTube videos were getting 7 or 8 views. Your latest edition has been viewed 108 times as of this evening! It's obvious to me that sailors who can't make it to the races are tuning in to find out what they missed.
Thank you for making a difference.
Everything went super-smoothly with Gary and Catamaran Collection and we are very pleased with the way it all happened. We felt well-advised and taken-care-of throughout the whole process. Every stage of the purchase (inspection, test sail, survey, rig check etc) fell into place like clockwork.
Gary's knowledge of catamarans is huge. He has been involved in hundreds of cat deals, visited almost every catamaran factory in the world, sailed almost every design, and has been on hundreds of surveys. This is a guy you want on your team.
It has been a real pleasure dealing with such a "straight-shooter" and knowledgeable expert rather than a "salesman". I will very definitely refer you to any of our friends knowing that you will treat them as fairly and professionally as you have with us.
Many thanks for everything! You had great ideas and input when we were narrowing down the candidates that fit our needs and budget. Your presence during the survey, haul-out, and sea trial was invaluable.
We took over a year to finally "pull the trigger" and Gary was there the whole time offering the benefit of all the years of experience he has. His book was a great help in helping to understand how all this works. Good job!
Gary helped us find the "Deal of the Year", we closed, sailed it home and we flipped it to pay for our cruise plus put some extra money in our pocket …so we just bought another boat through him and will do it again!
We spent a year looking for our "new" used yacht. Gary was quick to respond and kept in touch with news etc, effectively - i.e. none of this emails every week which everyone gets BUT specific news when something good cropped up.
We came very close to one missing out by a day or so (no fault of Gary's). He was also quick to offer GOOD sound advice on all sorts of subjects. We did find our "close to ideal" boat.
In the end we HIGHLY recommend Gary IF what you want is clear simple and useful advice - someone who listens to what you want and then effectively searches for YOU.
