I appreciate all the support that Karen and Grant provided together with the expert work of Helmut, Carl, Albert, Si and particularly Art this past week to get Checkmate back in the water to race. Although you advised that the stuffing box was repacked before year end, upon launching on Friday a week ago, unfortunately the PVC pipe had cracked. Art answered the call for "help" so Checkmate stayed afloat and the he did the repairs ASAP.
I am quite excited to share with you and your colleagues that I won the regatta with two first place finishes yesterday and a second in the race on Saturday.
My success in a large measure is due to the excellent work done to continue each year to have Checkmate in excellent racing condition and looking like new.
Recently I purchased an Alerion 28, not new but a lovely, well-maintained boat. The best part of the experience was having Rick Fleig as a resource! Indeed, without Rick’s assistance I would most likely not own this boat today.
Rick is a truly excellent representative of your company. Personable, knowledgeable, persistent, and completely focused on what’s best for the client. In this instance, the seller was very difficult and I was ready to give-up; but Rick masterfully put all the pieces together. He worked as hard as if this were a $1 million yacht!
Rick is a gem! I intend to stay in touch and I’ll be eager to recommend his services whenever possible.
I am writing to inform you of our thanks to the crew of McMichael Boat Yard for their outstanding service and dediction to [our program]. Consistently, they have met and or exceeded expectations for service and quality of work and remain instrumental in my smooth sailing success summer after summer.
The professional demeanor of Helmut and his crew has always been admired by our captain and my two children, who frequent the premise and often interact with the staff. I want to personally thank the entire yard for their service and let them know how much I appreciate their work.

I want to compliment the entire McMichael Yacht Brokers organization for successfully completing a very difficult transaction in the sale of my 1984 Tartan '40. As we all know too well, while she had been maintained in absolutely Bristol condition, we were all surprised when the survey revealed some problems. I compliment McMichael all for keeping the buyer in place, assisting me in getting the problem repaired, and getting the sale closed.
I purchased a 48-foot cruiser in Buffalo, NY. and paid a captain to deliver the boat to Newburyport MA. Along the way they ran into a serious issue with the fuel fill lines and had to make an emergency stop at your Rushmore Avenue Yard while running on one engine. The captain, a 30 year naval engineer, was driven to get the boat repaired and continue with the delivery; however he knew the repairs were serious.
Your team, knowing the situation, jumped into action working with the captain to remove portions of the boats interior and ac systems to gain access to the fuel fill lines. Working two long days, they were able to make the repairs and get back underway. The boat was delivered with only two days delay.
Words cannot express my gratitude and appreciation for your teams dedication and knowledge in making these repairs. I spoke with them several times as they kept me informed of the situation. Everyone at McMichael was fantastic to deal with and Patti called to follow up to ensure everything was ok and that I was happy.
Customer service is #1 in any business, and your team went above and beyond providing service. Between my captain and myself McMichael has new customers for life!
Thank you for everything!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your efforts, professionalism, and success in selling my sailboat. Despite the difficulties of the recession, you delivered a timely sale and reasonable purchase price.
There are so many details involved in the sale of a boat in this size range. You paid close attention and gave strong focus to managing this process. I can’t imagine trying to sell a boat without the help of McMichael Yacht Brokers. Please feel free to use me as a reference in the future.

Yesterday, I had an electrical hiccup on the boat. Two smart guys and one dumb one (me) couldn’t figure it out. I finally gave up and called my McMichael contact. He was snowshoeing with his wife and had to know on the call identification that it was me with a problem—on a Saturday afternoon. Anyway, he answered and right away told me what to do and that fixed it. It probably saved me another round trip to the bay (100 miles) and a couple hundred bucks for an electrician—and a lost day enjoying the boat.
The standard of quality, technical excellence and just plain niceness of your people sure speak well of you and everyone at McMichael.
It was a pleasure to meet you again, after 45 years. I was so impressed by the knowledge, helpfulness, and just plain niceness of your people that I wanted to take the time to write you.
Kevin was highly responsive with information and with communicating with the owner when we were considering the boat, and he was charming and informative on our trial runs. Mary Ann was helpful in giving me names of people who would transport the boat. Chris blew us away with all his technical knowledge and his wry sense of humor in demonstrating and explaining the boat on the trial run. Then he was helpful in finding transportation when the first trucker broke an axle. He was also helpful in providing us with maintenance records and useful information about maintaining the boat.
Then Patti, a real jewel, not only provided warm coffee, a nice dog to pat, and a warm place to wait while the survey was underway, she also took care of transfer details and bottom part specs for us. Rusty bought our lunch and helped us with the mechanics of wire transfer.
When the boat was hauled for transportation, Patti asked Brandon to check the zincs and the outdrive paint and he called me with a report. Then she sent pictures of the boat as it was hauled out of the yard—as did Kevin.
Even your receptionist, Linda, remarked that she was Danish and could see from my name that it was my heritage too and we had a pleasant conversation.
You have a damn fine group of people. That sure speaks well of you.
Mary Lou, thank you for the extreme kindness you gave me on Friday in helping me with fetching the provisions for my trip South on the J/24 I purchased thru McMichael. I made the trip thru NYC and down to Delaware non-stop in 25 hours and 25 minutes. The boat is safe and sound at my dock in Delaware. Many many thanks! You are a credit to your firm.
After 34 years with Anemone bought, serviced, and sold at McMichael’s, and another eight years with two Lightnings and a 110 at the Rushmore yard starting in 1945, I think it is time to go on record and say thank you for all that you and your associates have done to keep me afloat these many years.
