As first-time boat buyers, we hit the jackpot with Joe. He walked us through all of our options for styles of boats, gave us a very clear understanding of the finances of both buying and owning a boat – leaving no surprises. His knowledge of the industry and thoughtful approach to selling led us to our Dyer 29. He made the experience fun and his passion is evident. The process was enjoyable because Joe’s approach is focused on building good relationships and the sales follow.


When I first approached them about buying a boat, nothing on the market was a good fit. Thankfully, they recommended I don’t rush into something because a little while later they reached out to me when a good opportunity for my family came on the market – a good condition Limestone 24′ cuddy cabin. They coordinated the sea trial, closing documents, and vessel acceptance professionally and without delay.


I could not have been more pleased! Joe was attentive and thorough! He pulled together a tough deal out of state. He was on top of it the entire way and with his experience in the market, he had all the contacts needed to make it happen and get it delivered to my doorstep. I will be using him again when it’s time to upgrade!


Joe at Islandside Yacht Sales was an absolute pleasure to work with. Not only is he incredibly knowledgeable about the boats he is selling, he will go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable with your purchase. Joe was always available to answer questions when we needed him, and he took the time to make sure our experience with Islandside would be first rate. We could not have asked for a better experience and are looking forward to taking delivery of our Key West this spring.


We’ve had the opportunity to work with Joe and Ian on a sale and a purchase, both the sale and buy came with great results! Islandside brings knowledge and professionalism to the table making for two seamless transitions, wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again and will be referring them to friends and family. Really, [it] pays to have a broker!
