I met Pete Peters in 1994 when I ordered a 28' Carolina Classic, in 1999, I engaged him to sell this vessel. In 2014, he brokered my 25' Carolina Classic & a month later lent invaluable guidance in purchasing a 37' Egg Harbor. During my purchase process he showed & counseled me on numerous vessels before I decided on
the Egg. Pete was patient & was a good listener. In short, my experiences with him are completely satisfactory and I'd recommend him without reservation to anyone seeking to engage the services of a knowledgeable broker.
We hired Pete to sell our 27’ Albemarle. My husband had known Pete prior to our first meeting, but I had not. When we first started the process of looking for a boat, several times my husband called about boats and mentioned he might be hiring Pete, and in most instances the other brokers knew him and it seemed like a no brainer at that point, so we hired him. Pete has a great sense of humor, easy to talk too, responsive and helpful with all details. We found a 53’ custom boat in Stuart Florida that we wanted to look at. Pete had no problem traveling to Florida with us, setting up us to see the boat and arranging a surveyor that understood custom sport fishing boats, not just a surveyor! During the survey we found out, the boat had a blown motor, which never phased Pete. He negotiated an unbelievable deal for us, while always remaining professional with a corky twist of humor. He then helped advise my husband with the needed repairs to the boat and never abandoned us throughout this process. Pete did sell our Albemarle, to a woman and her finance, which also went very smooth. Everyone that Pete recommended to us, did an excellent job and were great to work with. When my husband wants to go bigger, I’m hoping not, he’ll be calling Pete.

I bought my boat from Pete, and when it came time to move and sell the boat I decided to use Pete again. Whenever I had a question on maintenance, marinas, etc I would ask Pete and he would answer my questions or point me to a reputable mechanic (probably saving me thousands during the time I owned the boat). Pete was able to sell my boat in just a few weeks. When the boat sold I was living/working 3,000 miles away but Pete handled everything... the repairs, the marina, the paperwork, everything. Selling a boat is stressful, but Pete made the process much easier. I would definitely recommend him to anyone buying or selling a boat.

Your advice on preparing the boat for sale including your guidance on the service needs of the boat, your marketing expertise and professionalism caused the sell to occur quickly in a difficult market. You are a true professional and I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is in the market to sell or buy a boat.
