Tom George Yacht Group Testimonials

“My experience with Tom George Yacht Group has been nothing but professional, knowledgeable, enthusiastic, transparent and just fun! Like others, we went boat shopping in the middle of the lock down here in St Pete Beach, FL. We hit all the big dealers but knew we had a match when we started working with Eric Aruffo. We literally fell in love with a new EdgeWater 230cc – with so many clever design features. But there just wasn’t much inventory (also due to the factory closing for a couple months). So we put in an order and just received our new boat, Liquidity! Eric and the whole team were simply great at their jobs. And Eric would call me day or night to answer my myriad question. Look, if you’ve got to go through the process which can be daunting, make sure you go visit Eric and his cohorts. It’s an experience you won’t regret!”

“My boating search started in WI looking for a new Cobalt, we were planning on moving to Fl. so I decided to check with the Cobalt dealer in clearwater this was a decision I will never regret. I ended up speaking with Eric Aruffo with the Tom George Yacht Group and the rest is history. This was my 4th new boat purchase and by far the best buying experience I have had. I actually purchased the boat sight unseen but with Eric at the helm taking videos and numerous pics I couldnt have felt more comfortable with the purchase. When I made it down to Fl. to see my boat and meet Eric and the crew at TGYG my initial thought were confirmed, Eric and the guys were the best. Capt. Wayne delivered my cobalt and the wealth of information he bestowed on my wife Susan and myself was invaluable, even though I had a lot of boating experience up north I had very little knowledge of the intercoastal waters that we would be boating on, Capt Wayne was excellent. Now 4 months have passed and Eric has continued to be the ultimate professional and a excellent representative for TGYG and recently went all in to help me move the boat to a new marina when I was up north dealing with a family illness. All I can say is you have a customer for life and I will tell everyone about Eric and the Tom George Yacht Group.”

“This boat buying experience was better than I expected. Tom George Yacht Group is top notch in customer service from the day we picked the boat up with Capt. Wayne taking his time to explain in detail everything we needed to know about our new boat to the standard servicing of our motor six months later. Dusty, sales manager, is easily accessible and always available to support us whenever needed even months after purchasing the boat. Great work by a great team!”

“Thank you Eric Aruffo for making this purchase one of the most pleasant ever. You made it easy to choose Edgewater as our choice of vessel with your product knowledge and patient discharge. The wife and and I are extremely pleased with your attention to details and follow through. Thanks for This’le Do, and looking forward to This’le Do 2.”
“Had a fantastic experience with Samantha Meyer. She always answered calls and followed up regularly every step of the way. Sam was never pushy and a pleasure to work with. Would definitely recommend and will go back for any future needs.”

“In February of this year, I was in the market for a a new boat and I contacted Jeff Schrier at TGYG as I knew that Jeff’s experience and knowledge would prove beneficial. Jeff showed me two boats. – He explained the differences between the two, shared his in-depth knowledge on hull construction in the different model years, provided valuable information on the electronics and excellent insight into the market values, now and in the future. Jeff’s post-survey guidance enabled me to buy my boat at an excellent price and I couldn’t be happier with my new (to me) boat. If I ever decide to upgrade, Jeff will be the first person that I call.”

“We have worked with Jeff on multiple transactions over the past few years and will continue to use his services for our next boat. Jeffs knowledge of the industry is immense as he is an active boater of over 30 years and has owned everything from a small fun boat to exceptionally large yachts! Jeffs strengths are many when it comes to finding exactly what you are looking for and his negotiation skills are the best in the business however, where he shines is communication. It doesn’t matter if its day or night, or before or after your transaction is complete – he will take care of whatever questions or concerns you have. His customer Service is without a doubt a 5 STAR plus rating! We would absolutely endorse Jeff if you’re considering buying or selling a boat!”

We highly recommend Tom George Yacht Group. Beautiful facility and great staff! If you’re looking for professionalism, expertise, no pressure and a little fun, work with Sam. And, after the sale, we truly appreciated Captain Wayne for a thorough, great tutorial and delivery of our beautiful, new EdgeWater 248CX.

You are shopping for a boat, you HAVE to try a Cobalt. After we tested several boats and brands, there is just nothing to describe the ride quality and performance that will just blow your mind. It’s just amazing. To top it off, you won’t get a better friendly and perfect service than at the Tom George Yacht Group. From the Sales experience (ask for Eric!), to all the staff. Thank you!

Everyone at Tom George who helped my fiancé and I purchase our first boat was fantastic, our experience was first class. Sam guided us through the whole process and was extremely knowledgeable. We never felt pressured or rushed throughout the process and every question or concern we had was answered or addressed. Captain Wayne was terrific as well, he really went out of his way to make sure we felt comfortable and familiar with our boat during the sea trial and delivery. To everyone else there behind the scene who helped make the process painless, we thank you for the great service.

I ordered a brand new Edgewater 370 from these guys and I’ve continually been impressed by the care and professionalism I’ve received. Everything I asked for and needed was done in a correct and timely manner. I highly recommend them when purchasing a new/used boat or with needing service. They took care of my older boat’s service and sale as well and again, the care was impeccable. Thanks to the entire staff, especially Dusty who handled me for 4 or 5 years before I made the order. I always felt I was a very valued customer even when just “looking”. I look forward to many years of a great working relationship.

“Jimmy, I love to tell you buying a boat was a fun and interesting experience from start to finish, it just would not have happened without you- I love the 68 Hatteras!”

“Jimmy, we can’t thank you enough for being the fearless leader of our team. Working with you has been a total pleasure. It was so re-assuring to know that you were always in our corner. With so much gratitude”

“It was an absolute pleasure dealing with everyone at TGYG. Jimmy Rogers listed my boat and we had a contract within 5 days, actually much faster than expected. This left me with little time to find my new vessel. I found myself torn between the 33 Boston Whaler Outrage and the 335 Everglades CC. Richard Murbach found me the perfect new boat (2019 Everglades) and both of these guys went out of their way to help us make a tough decision pretty easy. My wife and I tested both boats and agreed that the Everglades had a higher quality feel and more solid ride than the Whaler…but price as a bit of an issue. The Whalers were all 2018’s (lots of unsold leftovers from last year) which gave them more flexibility on price. Richard and Jimmy not only went to Tom to make things happen, they also got Everglades involved as well. Took delivery of our new 335 Everglades last week! We are confident we made the right choice and know we got a great deal! On a side note, lifts are pretty scarce at the local marinas…they are letting us use the TGYG boat lift at Marker 1 until one becomes available in Dec. Now THAT’S going above and beyond!”
