The best part of buying our new Lagoon was meeting Anne and Jonathan. They are extremely knowledgeable and experienced brokers, but beyond that, they are just fantastic people. We had owned a smaller boat, but were buying a larger boat to cruise full time. As experienced cruisers themselves, they were able to help us choose the boat and features that would work best for us and all of their advice was spot on. There was never any pressure and they always had our best interests in mind. We have had our new boat for over 3 years. During that time they have been helpful with any questions we have had and when there were warranty issues they have had our back. We also asked them to sell our old boat for us. The sale went very smoothly, and while they absolutely advocated for us, they were also always honest and upfront, helping us keep our expectations realistic. Now, more than 3 years later, we still keep in touch and recommend their services to others every chance we get. People have asked us what is important when buying a boat and one of the first things we say is, “having a broker you can trust”. With Jonathan and Anne, you most certainly do.

Anne and Jonathan went the extra mile to help us find the perfect boat and stayed in constant contact to help us with all the little details that we needed to organize. Our boat was delivered in perfect shape and we couldn’t be happier with the follow-up from Jonathan and Anne.

Beneteau Oceanis 48
Anne was our “buyers” broker when my wife and I purchased our Beneteau 361 in 2014. Both Jonathan and Anne were patient and knowledgeable in showing us multiple boats, guiding us until we found the “right” one that met our needs at that time. After five seasons with that boat, our sailing goals became a bit more ambitious, and we decided that we wanted something a little bigger. Naturally, we went back to them! They artfully handled the quick listing and sale of the B361, as well as our purchase of the Oceanis 41 replacement. They are skilled and honest boat brokers, and a pleasure to work with!

Beneteau 361/Beneteau Oceanis 41
We first started working with Anne and Jonathan in 2007, looking to replace our Hunter with a larger, more up-to-date boat. They were very responsive and helpful, guiding us through the process and providing advice that proved to be very useful. Furthermore, when it came time to sell our Beneteau 43, they expertly managed the process and sold it quickly, at a very good price. And perhaps most importantly, Jonathan worked tirelessly to deal with survey details while we were out of the country and close the sale.
We will certainly call on Jonathan and Anne for our next boat transaction, whatever it might be.

After three sailboat hunting trips and having dealt with a dozen brokers, Anne and Jonathan Hutchings rise to the top. Their many years of brokerage experience combined with their professional and convivial approach, made the sailboat searching and purchasing experience very educational and stress free. In fact it almost felt as if they were working for us. When the time comes to shop for a boat, we strongly recommend that you should firstly seek the services of Anne and Jonathan Hutchings. You will be very happy you did.
