We Love Bob Perry

Bob PerryYes! We love Bob Perry. We love our blue water boats. Bob's boats have gone farther and faster than just about all the other blue water boats combined. His contributions to the cruising world are so many good boats and a lifetime of loving boats. Bob has spent a lifetime designing true offshore capable sailing vessels for the common man! You can take advantage of Bob's expertise through his consulting service. He charges a nominal fee to talk you through all your requirements and choices, and compromises. Take advantage of all his experience. You can pick up the phone and talk to him.

We know that buying a boat is much more than just plopping down a wad of money. We understand that your plan likely transpired through many years of dreaming and of planning and of many years of hard work and sacrifice. The decision of what the proper vessel should be, is not just dependent on the Listing or Selling Broker's inventory. The right vessel for your needs should be determined based an objective analysis of your requirements and then on the condition of the vessel and her inventory. We promise that the needs of our client's needs will always come first. This is why, We strongly suggest that you might consider consulting an outside expert. Bob Perry does this for people like you. His only interest is what's right for you. Take advantage of his expertise and experience just as you would consult a doctor for a "Second Opinion".

Please give one of the world's greatest yacht designers a call, you won't regret doing so, for Bob Perry is knowledgeable, pleasant, and loves talking boats as much as Bernie does! Bernie has owned THREE of Bob's designs, that's 127 feet of boats adding up to some 1.3 million dollars. We'd say that we're hooked on them.

Bob Perry Says...

I get so many requests from people asking that I help them find the right boat that I needed a way to give myself the time and freedom to respond thoroughly. I offer a consultation service that gives the client ongoing phone access to me. This means that, within reason, you can call as many times as you need to satisfy the questions you have during the boat buying process. It might be helpful for you to fax me specs on various boats you are looking at and let me be the devil's advocate to insure that you are exploring all the appropriate options.

It may be that you called for information on one of my designs but in fact there are other designer's boats that would better serve your needs. You may think that certain designs are mine while in fact my name was attached to them as a marketing convenience. This can be very important. I may have information pertaining to certain hull numbers that are better than others and which hull numbers had specific, genetic problems.

Working together we can reduce your list down to a group of good boats. When you are ready to make an offer I will give you some support on where to start the process. I will also go over specs and surveys with you in detail. This way we can search out the significant areas of concern and where your strength in negotiating may lie. I can direct you to knowledgeable and energetic brokers that have proven themselves to me.

When you have the boat you may need to buy some gear. I have access to some pretty significant discounts. I will sell major gear items to you at my price plus 10%. Some of my discounts run as high as 50%. This particular service also allows me to have some input on the way you equip your boat. When your boat looks good, I look good.

This service has made some good friends for me. Most consultation clients are very happy with my help. We can have some fun and find a good boat at a good price in the process. You may find that when you approach a broker and tell them that you have retained me as a consultant a whole level of "broker babble" immediately falls away.

This consultation service is also available if you already own a Perry boat and would like access to Bob for technical advice or a set of your boat's original plans. Bob can advise you on choice of gear, sail plan options, the best sail-makers and various ways you can make your boat perform better. This service is available for $500 USD.
