In 1998 he successfully began selling Hatteras yachts, receiving their "Distinguished Sales Achievement" award eleven years in a row.

"Tom, it was a pleasure working with you through the process of selling our yacht and purchasing a new one. We appreciate your hard work in finding the boat we were looking for within our price range. Your customer service is top of the line. Your staff is very knowledgeable and made it easy to do business with you. Your recommendation for an insurance provider was great. Not only was Frank knowledgeable but his customer service was excellent and he saved us money on the policy. You were on top of every aspect of the sale and trade in throughout the process and I appreciate your ongoing support. Based on my experience I would highly recommend your team."
"Tom, I have wanted to write this letter since 2003 when we began our relationship. As you know, since 2003, we have been involved in five transactions. In each of those successive transactions, my respect for your knowledge and my belief that you have my best interests at heart continues with each transaction. As I have told multiple people, your efforts on my behalf gave me no choice but to continue our relationship. That is, it would be imprudent of me not to use your services. Thank you for all your assistance in the past years."
"We are writing this letter to show our deep appreciation for your knowledge of the boating market and your very sincere concern for the satisfaction of your customers. I have worked with you for over twenty years in the buying and selling of my boats from 27 to 60 feet. In each transaction you showed nothing but the highest value of integrity and professionalism. With each purchase or sale, I put my faith in you and your sales force delivered above and beyond the call of duty. It has been a pleasure working with Rob as a representative of your company. His attention to detail and concern for our every need, both personal and business was exceptional. We have made a lifetime friend. Thank you for making it easy for us!"
