Working with Martin

Martin is a catamaran owner himself. He is very experienced with operations and maintenance of all types of boats, particularly catamarans. In fact, when asked, he lists his hobbies as sailing and maintaining his boat as well as helping others with technical issues on their boats. Says Martin, “I especially like to develop user practical solutions to common issues.”

He believes fervently that the yacht buyer is the only one who can decide what is the correct boat, system, or feature that is right for them. Martin insists, “We are all different and have different needs, likes and dislikes. A good broker provides guidance, knowledge, and suggestions, but always allows the client to filter and decide their own preferences.”

On a Personal Note

My wife, Lynn, was an ER nurse for 28 years and now does multi-level marketing. Son, Zach, graduated from University of Florida with a Masters in Nuclear Engineering and works with NextEra, an electrical services company.

Our favorite sailing destination is the Bahamas where we met Stephen and Estelle in 2017. I arranged the racing handcapping for their 2018 Catamaran Guru Rendezvous.

His Testimonials are Amazing

the hargreaves who are boat buyers of martin cooper yacht broker

We were so fortunate to meet Martin when he was representing a seller of a Lagoon 500. That was not the boat for us, but Martin was definitely the broker for us!

He is very knowledgeable and will thoroughly research to find answers if he does not know. He contacted the broker/owner of each boat prior to our seeing them so he could provide a full background. He gave us factual information, not opinions, so we could make informed decisions.

His negotiation skills are invaluable. And, once the sale is finished, it is only the start of the relationship with him.

His goal is to make certain we find a boat that is right for us and that we continue to be happy with it.

Consider yourself fortunate to work with Martin. He will have your best interests at heart!

...from john c olson...

Martin Cooper and Catamaran Guru helped me purchase a previously owned Lagoon catamaran. Martin was extremely knowledgeable, willing and able to answer numerous questions throughout the entire process. After closing, he has been available as a friendly and valuable resource providing great information and advice, which has been very useful.

I highly recommend Martin Cooper and Catamaran Guru.

...from jeff miller...

Martin lives the catamaran lifestyle. Additionally, he is detail oriented and has always followed through for me; before, during and after my purchase. He has a plethora of knowledge when it comes to sailing catamarans, their systems and if doesn’t know, he will find out for you.

Having Martin on your team during your purchase will be beneficial as you could not be better represented.
