|Over that past 27 years, I have purchased three sailboats from Willis Marine, a Tartan 33, a Sabre 34 and a Sabre 362. These three sailboats plus two fishing boats have wintered at Willis and have been serviced by them. Willis Marine Center has earned my familys loyalty as a customer because of their skills and expertise. Equally important has been their friendliness and understanding of how important a smooth running boat is to my familys summer enjoyment. The Willis family lives up to the finest traditions of family owned and managed businesses by being committed to the satisfaction of their customers. I like doing business with them and am happy to recommend them to my friends.

|I have purchased 2 sail boats from David Willis of Willis Marine, a Beneteau First 36.7, and then 2 years later traded in for a First 44.7. The boats [both] are awesome! In each case Ive made significant modifications to them of electronics and hvac & genset on the 44.7. The trade-in was very favorable and service has always been professional and of high quality. As a new boater, David spent a great deal of time helping guide me in the right direction. Please feel free to contact me directly for a personal recommendation.

|These days, when it is almost impossible to deal with anyone in the Sales or Services Industries, I must sing the praises of Willis Marine. I recently purchased my second Beneteau Sailboat from David Willis. It is so refreshing to deal with people who are experienced professionals, who take the time to make sure their customers are happy, and most importantly take pride in the boats and services that they deliver. Dealing with the Willis’ has been a pleasure from the day I met them 10 years ago right up until today, and I’m sure tomorrow will be no different. David Willis is not only my salesman; he has become someone that I’m proud to call a friend.

|Absolutely the best experience Ive ever had in my entire boat buying life! David Willis and Willis Marine give you the concierge treatment, from beginning to end. And they dont forget you after youve sailed away with your boat! They make it a pleasure for you to spend your hard-earned money!

|We have been very satisfied customers of Willis Marine since moving to the Huntington, NY area. Our last two boats have been purchased through their brokerage and we winter store in their yard every year. Buying boats is made easy at the full service brokerage. Financing, surveying, registration, and closing is all easily arranged and the boats are fairly priced. The yard handles the boat gently each fall for hauling and each spring for launching on the dates requested with no delay. Everyone in the yard is friendly and always willing to answer a question and lend some professional advice.

|When my wife and I had decided to buy a new boat, we had pretty much decided on an 11 or 12 meter Trojan. While looking through the listings on YachtWorld.com, we found a 12 meter Trojan, located at Willis Marine in Huntington NY. Because pictures can be very deceiving, I called Dave Willis and wanted to know if the boat was as clean as it appeared. He assured me that it was. Within days we took the road trip and found the boat to be everything we expected it to be. Dave promptly presented the offer to the owners and within days we had a sales agreement. In the months to follow, I found the purchase transaction to be extremely smooth and the staff at Willis Marine Center to be very professional, knowledgeable and prompt. All the details were handled by them with no problems. We were kept well informed at all times and overall found the buying experience very pleasant. Would I buy from them again?…… Absolutely!

|I bought my first new boat from Willis Marine. David Willis was honest and extremely helpful. He and his yard have always exceeded my expectations in their service and knowledge. I would highly recommend them for your boating needs.

|We bought our Beneteau 44.7 from Willis Marine Center (WMC) in Huntington, NY. David and Jeff Willis were a wealth of information and helped me make all the right decisions about equipment etc. when I ordered the boat. Since the boat was built in France and shipped to the US, WMC had to install the keel, rudder etc. The yard did a very professional job and was responsive to our every request for any changes etc.
