What our customers say

Joseph Catalanotto – Chet and his team did a fantastic job! Picked up my 455 last week. The entire process from ordering to trading to delivery was seamless and very enjoyable. Great job everyone! Keep up the great work!

I had an awesome purchase experience with Island Yacht. I met them through the 2020 Long Island Boat Show, just before COVID. I worked with John, a captain / salesperson with Island Yacht, as well as Chet Striplin, the owner. They both were very accommodating. They answered all my questions, as well as a bunch of questions I didn’t know to ask. I felt they were honest and forthcoming throughout our dealings. On delivery day, John spent most of a day going through the details of my new boat and then accompanied me to run the boat from Island Yacht to my home port in Bellmore. As a first-time boater this was super-helpful, I plan to take follow-up lessons with John so I can learn as quickly as possible. Five stars all the way!!!

Doug Mickity

Great people and staff. Very helpful, respond quickly and reasonable fees. Highly recommend – if they had 10 stars we’d check off all 10.

Lou V.

The guys down at Island Yacht Management are some of the best in the business. From the moment i contacted them about a pre-owned boat to pick up today they were fantastic. Colin was my main contact and was on top of everything. I honestly can’t say enough good things about the team that works there. They truly care about you and the products they sell. They went above and beyond and i will 100 percent be going back to them for all my future boating needs.
