After being boaters in Gig Harbor for 30 years, we wanted to keep our 58'
Ocean Alexander listing in town. WOW! What good fortune to find Emerald Yachts. Upon initial meeting with Scott,
I could tell that he would definitely find our boat
a new home. Little did we know that he would find that new owner before we even signed the listing contract!
Yes, he's THAT good. What sets Scott apart from others is that he truly is more than a salesman but rather a businessman.
He brought two clients together with everyone walking away thrilled with the outcome. His knowledge and wisdom allowed
him to negotiate and help get the sale done. It was amazing his many connections in the boating world and he's so versed
about all subjects dealing with boating.
From start to finish he walked us through the entire process--pricing,
the haul-out, survey and inspection, contact with the best mechanics around, dealing with the title company, banks,
closing, even teaching the new owners how to drive the boat. His personal involvement and constant updates were
remarkable. He was always only a text away.
again Emerald Yachts exceeded my expectations! This time it was to list and sell my diesel trawler. Scott provided
hands-on assistance with high quality photos, suggestions for boat preparation, and helped both me and the potential buyers
at every step of the process. I achieved a very fast sale, at an attractive price, and Scott took the stress out
of the whole process.
For me as a seller, in a fairly soft market for older diesel trawlers, his personable
and professional approach was awesome! And so were his results! So once again...I want to add my wholehearted recommendation
for Scott and Emerald Yachts! For future boating transactions...either buying or selling, I will definitely make my
first call to Emerald Yachts!
Kuddos to Scott & Jim...talk about service!!!
were looking for our retirement boat and upgrading from a 36’ Hunter sailboat to something a bit larger. After an exhausting
search all around the Puget Sound and finding several possibilities that for one reason or another failed to materialize,
we stumbled upon a 43' Hunter listed by Emerald Yachts in Gig Harbor. Since we live in southwest Washington and had very busy
schedules, Jim kindly came in on his day off to show us the boat. Throughout the process, Jim & Scott believed in us and
were able to negotiate a four way close, taking no commission on a buyer for our existing boat and our boat in as a trade,
providing a great saving on taxes. Without their business connections…this deal would never have happened.
YOU EMERALD YACHTS….You guys ROCK.

Shirley and I would like to thank Emerald Yachts
for the great service and attention we received during our recent shopping and purchasing of our new boat and boathouse.
They were so easy to work with while we were looking at boats and we appreciated their honesty and lack of
pressure. We are sure we will enjoy our 47' Bayliner and are extremely happy to have a great boathouse to keep it in. I really
appreciated the time Scott Alprin spent helping me learn to operate the new boat. Thanks again for all the time and effort
you shared with us.

We had been looking for a sailboat for two years when we found what we hoped was the "one"
through Emerald Yachts. As Canadian citizens and residents we were a bit hesitant about buying in the US. and negotiating
the import regulations. However, it couldn't have been easier with the proper paperwork and advice from Michelle and Scott,
clearing ourselves and the boat through customs with ease in Bedwell Harbour. Michelle couldn't have been
more helpful by driving us around to get parts for our RV, being professional with quick, clear and concise communication
and always being on time for appointments. I would highly recommend Michelle and Emerald Yachts.
John and Nancy Myers
Being “dry landers” from Montana and living 500 miles away, we needed
a broker we could confidently trust and to operate and show our 61’ Ocean. After our first contact with Scott and his
staff, we knew that we had chosen a very qualified and capable yacht brokerage
team. Scott did far more than we expected in both time and energy and we would not hesitate to recommend Scott and Emerald
Yachts to anyone wanting to sell their yacht or buyers looking to purchase.
Great Job Scott! Thank you for everything.
