When I bought my boat, Steve @ VIYB was the broker on the other side of the table. When I sold it, I hired him to be my broker. When a problem arose, he jumped in, said, "I've got this," and took care of it. If you're looking for a broker who is thoughtful, experienced, and effective, Steve is the best of the best.

Talk about "going the extra mile" I bought a boat unseen, just on the recommendation from this company. Couldn't be happier, their aftersales service is amazing. I highly recommend this company just ask for Andrew or Steve. You won't be disappointed.

I worked with Christiaan on purchasing a catamaran. He worked with me for months and months. He went above and beyond from traveling to places, To scheduling surveys, to making sure surveys were executed properly. He was always available for any questions that arose. He was honest when a boat wasn’t what we were looking for. He is not a typical broker as most are just looking for a sale. He cares about the person and what you are getting. He is hands down the best broker you could ever ask for. And in turn I also gained a friendship with he and his wonderful wife Rebecca. Thanks for everything

We hired Christiaan Liebenberg to help us deliver our 2018 Lagoon 450F (SV Moxie) from St John USVI to St Augustine FL. Christiaan and his wife, Rebecca, we’re awesome in all respects. He is so easygoing and his sailing knowledge is unparalleled. He is an experienced Captain and they created a very relaxed atmosphere on Moxie. As a retired US Marine, I don’t say this lightly, but I trust Christiaan with my life. If you need a great Captain, look no further.
