I recently worked with Captain Jurek on the purchase of an 84′ Northcoast which we found on the West Coast of Florida.

This CAST-AWAY is our eighth boat.  Over the years, we have been fortunate to have worked with a number of good brokers.  For this transaction, we hired Jurek to assist in finding and representing us in the purchase of the CAST-AWAY. We hired Jurek based on the enthusiastic recommendation of a good friend who had worked with Jurek on the purchase of his new boat.  I am very glad that I took my friend’s advice.

We live in Southern California and looked at boats from the Pacific Northwest to the North-East, down to Mexico and finally found the right boat in Longboat Key, Florida. The logistics of buying a larger boat on the other side of the country, as well as a difficult selling party, made this transaction particularly challenging. Captain Pilek’s professionalism, experience, and tenacity helped us navigate through a potentially difficult process, yielding us an exceptional boat that meets our needs and requirements.

Jurek is a dedicated professional broker who I will work with again, and can confidently recommend to anyone buying or selling a boat.
