"I chose Carver because I thought it was the best boat in its class at the Ft Myers boat show and was competitively priced.
I think that steve Allen is one of a kind. Very sensitive and very knowledgeable of the product. He is a pleasure to deal with. The buying process was very smooth and organized. I am extremely pleased with everything and everyone. The delivery was very exciting, informative, flawless and professional.
We are currently on our first trip. We left yesterday and we are at Legacy Harbour for 4 Days. The boat ran smoothly just as we expected. We are exploring and testing every aspect of the boat. So far so good!! It is an amazing boat.
Thank you for everything." - Tom Theisen

" Wally, just wanted to take a moment to say thank you for the outstanding service you and the staff at Tom George Yacht Group displayed during the recent sale of our Hatteras and the purchase of our 38 Tiara. I know our time line was short in accomplishing both tasks, however, your hard work and persistence really paid off. I don't believe many other brokers could have handled both transactions in the time frame you did. I also wanted to thank you for your referral concerning marine insurance. Frank was very service oriented, worked quickly and gave us a very competitive rate. We will gladly refer our boating friends to you and the Tom George Yacht Group." - Nathan M. and Francine M.
