Client Testimonials

Happy new owner Jim (8/29/2017)

Thanks, John.
It was really a great trip - we covered nearly 2200 miles , over half with just the 2 of us.  Overall, the Prestige functioned beautifully.  We certainly are far from expert, but we're getting reasonably competent with most aspects of the boat.  We both love the Prestige. Your mentorship was extremely valuable, and we greatly appreciate your skill and advice in preparing us for some "real world" experience.
We appreciate your willingness to help- look forward to seeing you at Orange Beach.



Danny and Lori Green (2/14/2017)

We want to let all of you know how extremely pleased we are with the purchase of our beautiful new yacht. From the moment we walked up to it at the Galati Destin Marina we were just blown away!!! Our wonderful salesman John McDonald was with us throughout each moment of this process and went way above what we would ever have expected.  His knowledge of this Presitge 560 was truly impressive and the training that he gave us was incredible.  We were a little concerned about driving this size of boat but we now feel much more confident and will continue to learn from John. We are so excited to be part of the Galati Yachting Family!

Thanks so much to each of you!

Thanks for all your help last week while we were at The Wharf. What could have been a very difficult situation was made all the easier by the attentive Galati Crew.

Robert Totsch (6/28/2016)

John was outstanding!

He was patient and went above and beyond the call in helping me throughout the entire process. Professional and helpful. He made this experience so positive for my wife and me that I will recommend him to everyone! He is a future superstar and has that quality that simply makes people feel comfortable about spending big bucks on a boat!I also wanted to say that Carrie was also a great asset and worked numbers for me and helped me get to my sweet spot. She was efficient, professional and extremely friendly!Most of the finance people in my line of work... Not so much. Thanks to you as well for your help and guidance early on in the process. If ever asked I'll tell people the only place to buy a boat is through Galati !!!

See you this summer!!!
