I recently purchased a vessel from the Galveston Galati dealership. My broker was Kyle Butler.
Mr. Butler was professional, knowledgeable, and very helpful throughout the entire process. Leading up to the survey, Kyle assisted in finding a hall-out facility, provided contact information on several marine surveyors for me to decide upon, provided a financing point of contact at Galati to assist in the sale, and worked with the seller’s broker to negotiate the contract. Kyle was always available. During the mechanical survey, Kyle noticed a leak in the raw water pump that I had missed and made sure that the mechanic inspected the pump on my behalf. He could have let that go; instead, he noticed a problem and ensured that it was addressed.
Kyle got me in contact with Galati Finance Manager, Dana Galvao. Ms. Galvao really streamlined the finance process. She reviewed several different lenders to provide options on the best loan terms. Dana arranged for TP&WD and USCG documentation, making registering and properly documenting new ownership a simple and smooth process. Ms. Galvao answered my questions and was available, as needed. Closing was straightforward.
Together, Mr. Butler and Ms. Galvao made the entire purchasing process simple and enjoyable. The services Galati Yacht Sales provides really make vessel purchasing a turnkey process. Thank you, Galati, for a wonderful experience.
