I have had two 30′ cruisers in Dana Point Harbor over the last 15 years. Dave Greuel took care of my first boat, a 1988 SeaRay Weekender, for every possible need; mechanical work on both engines, installation of electronics and repair to damaged transmission. I bought my current boat, a Monterey 302 from him. Dave is the most honest, decent man I know and he was superb as the broker helping me acquire this boat. Since I bought the boat, he has done repairs to the genset and maintained the engines. He also installed our Lowrance GPS. Everything Dave Greuel does is EXCELLENT, first class and done the way a marine repair or installation should be done. Buying a boat with Dave Greuel as the broker was a pleasure. These people are reputable and the type of business professionals you want to deal with. They are completely trustworthy and honorable. I give Mariners Yacht & Ship Brokerage, and Dave Greuel, Bob Jarvis and Mark Washburn my very highest recommendation.

I am a moderately experienced sailor who has also spent some time repairing and working on a sailboat that I crew on with a friend. Captain Mike was recommended by my friend who used Mike to find his boat 7-8 years ago.
Mike knows his business. But he really impressed me by taking the time to listen to what I wanted in a boat. We looked at several boats and he pointed out the pros and cons on each. He also pointed out the equipment add on value factors which was helpful. As a result we found a great 15 yr old Catalina 36 mk II that looks like it is only 5 yrs old and went thru survey with flying colors. I recommend him highly!

Bob Jarvis did an incredible job marketing my boat and doing whatever was necessary to keep things moving forward positively. Thank you for your professionalism and hard work throughout! You made the experience very enjoyable and did the little things that other brokers might typically complain about. Please feel free to provide any future potential customer my contact information if they’re requesting a reference on you for a future listing, etc.
Thanks again Bob for a job well done on the closing of my 2004 Robalo

I would recommend Mariners Yacht & Ship Brokerage to anyone looking to either buy or sell a boat. Steve Hughson went above and beyond to sell my boat. He is professional kind and honest. I cannot thank him enough for all he did for me. Dave Gruel and Mike O’Conner were also extremely helpful with the transaction. They deserve more than 5 stars.

Bob Jarvis is an awesome salesman. He is knowledgeable and has helped us in the buying and selling of our boat. Friendly, fair and helpful.
