I would like to recognize and convey the exceptional service we received from Dave Berard at HMY Yacht Sales. Dave is a professional in the very sense of the word. He offered exemplary customer service from our first phone conversation, when we spoke about what exactly we were looking for in a Viking Sportfish, through the ownership of the vessel and it never wavered after the sale. Dave made himself available to answer any questions. He helped guide us to service providers in the area that could assist with our boat-related needs and even provided us recommendations on captains in the area to help us out with this new adventure. He has always made himself available to us regardless of how large or small our question or issue was. Dave made so much of an impression on us we used him to sell our Viking Sportfish and buy a new one all in a 2-year period.
Dave is the epitome of a professional who cares and goes above and beyond for all his customers regardless of the size or price of the vessel. He understands that good customer service is based on your customers seeking you out, ensuring they return, and future recommendations they may provide. The saying goes “Customers may forget what you said but they will never forget how you made them feel.” This was our experience with Dave Berard. He is a salesman that has a passion for what he does and understands what the customer needs and wants. Dave works hard to ensure that he puts you in the right vessel so that you have positive results with your purchase.
We highly recommend Dave Berard to anyone looking for a professional, knowledgeable, courteous, and outgoing salesman! His years of experience in the yachting industry show his love of what he does and his success in sales and repeat customers is the proof to back it up.
