I recently purchased a 2004 Boston Whaler Nantucket from John at Coastal Marine Center in Nokomis, Fl. He was very professional and knowledgeable, answering all my questions and making the whole process an easy one. He was honest and trustworthy, traits that are so important when you're making a large purchase such as this one. Even after taking the boat home, he was quick to respond to my emails and follow-up questions about the boat. I would highly recommend John and the Coastal Marine Center to anyone who is looking for a reasonable deal on a well-maintained pre-owned boat.

I had my boat listed for sale on a local website when I received a call from Kim wanting to sell my boat for me. I was very skeptical wondering what the "catch" was. She assured me there was no catch, and referred me to talk with John. Both explained the process, and I'd get my bottom line $$ with no expense to me. I had two showings from the website listing scheduled the next day and said I would get back to them if my boat didn't sell. One was a no show and the other wanted it after a test run but had one more boat to look at. Needless to say it never worked out. That's a lot of work for nothing. I took my boat in and met John. We agreed on my price. They did all the work! I got a call from John the next day with an acceptable offer. This team takes the hassle out of selling your boat. I would highly recommend them to anyone. John Sarasota

Thanks for all your hard work, John! When the yacht survey uncovered significant discrepancies, your attention to detail got us through the rough patches. Thanks for always being very professional, and thanks for keeping the deal together. My family loves the boat! Greg

A big thanks to John and his team on the purchase of my boat. From the first phone call inquiring about an interest in my boat till taking possession, John has been very helpful from day one. He set me up with a financial institution and within minutes, I was approved. A few days later, I met John at the office where he took me to the dock where my boat was waiting for my first sea trial. We both took the boat out and John was very helpful showing me the way the boat handles and going over all the gauges and buttons to make sure I was comfortable. Then my turn to take over. A few days later, John and his partner Dave, delivered my boat right to my house. Any questions that I have, they are always there to help. This is my 5th boat over the years, and this by far has been the best customer service I have ever had...Thank you John and team ! Rick

I recently purchased my boat from John at Coastal Marine Center in Nokomis, Fl. From the first phone call speaking with John, I felt comfortable in dealing with him. After arriving and speaking with John, I was ready to go ahead and make a move. John was very helpful and did all the work for me. After deciding on the boat, John called the finance institution he uses, and with in minutes after speaking with them, I was approved. With in a few days, I met up with John and his team at the office. He took me over to the marina, where my boat was waiting for me in the water, with a full tank of gas. We went out in the intra coastal for a sea trial run. John drove to boat for a while showing me all the gauges and controls to make sure I knew how it handles and where everything was before letting me take over. This is my 5th boat that I have owned over many years, and this was the best experience that I have had purchasing a boat. From taking ownership, John and his team has been there for any question I have had and have went over and above what I expected. Not a "buy the boat and see you" experience. I told a close friend about my boat, and after going to look at mine, he also purchased a boat from John with the same great customer service. Thanks to John and his team for making my boat purchase of such an easy road.....Rick

To: Potential Boat Buyers, Our Recommendation for… John Mazur of Coastal Marine We had been looking for a good used boat for over a year when we found John Mazur of Coastal Marine in Nokomis, Fl. When we called him to make an appointment to see the boat he’d advertised, he offered to meet us on a Saturday morning even though the business was closed. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the boat answering all our questions. After going back home to reflect on everything, we decided to make an offer. John handled everything very professionally over the phone and internet. He made the entire buying process a smooth experience. A few days before we were scheduled for our sea trial, John called to let us know their mechanic had found some routine, but significant, cost maintenance items that should have been done. Unlike other dealers, John informed us that he had these things done at no additional charge. Not only did John help us to get the boat of our dreams at a good value, but we now did not have to worry about undetectable, expensive maintenance items that would have needed to be done sooner than necessary. John Mazur of Coastal Marine in Nokomis, Fl is recommended highly by us because of the professionalism, honesty and integrity he exhibited in our business dealings. Thank You, John Mazur, Sincerely, Adrian and Sandy Hudson, Fl

Adrian - Hudson, FL

Wow is all I can say! John Mazur was my sales rep and he serviced us like he was part of the family. We are new to boating and John got us a phenomenal price for a boat that was in superb condition. John answered all my questions and gave knowledge to me where I needed it. He went well beyond a normal sales contract. He still continues to make himself available to me for the many questions I have as a new boat owner. If your in the market for a boat you can trust this man to do right by you. To be honest it has been one of the best sales experiences in my life. Customer service still lives at Coastal Marine Center. Thank you John!

Mike - Sarasota, FL

John Mazur was a superb agent from the time I first met him until present, several weeks after buying my boat at CMC. He looked carefully at my family's boating needs, and got us the perfect boat at the best price. He made the transaction flawlessly smooth, and continued to help when we had questions afterward. I wholeheartedly recommend buying a boat from him.

Chip - Nokomis, FL

John Mazur did a phenomenal job of taking care of my needs! I drove down from the panhandle and didn't get to his shop till late on a Saturday evening and he still opened everything up and even called in his staff to assist with anything and everything. More salesmen need to take lessons from this man because he is a true class act. Thank for everything John and the boat is in tip top shape.

John - Panhandle, FL

John Mazur was my sales agent. He did an outstanding job getting me into a boat that was safe and that I could afford. He had my back through and after the entire buying process. I would highly recommend him. Plus as a bonus he told us of this awesome pizza place in Sarasota. He was right it was awesome. Thanks for the boat and pizza tip.

Chris - Seminole, FL

From the time we looked at the Boat John was exceptional and caring. He answered all our questions and made the process easy. Todd was there during the sea trial and assisted us in answering all our questions and addressing our concerns. Even after taking ownership they attended to things to make sure our experience with them was both professional and our initial experience with the boat was rewarding. This is a dealer whom after purchasing the boat does not leave you "hi and dry" they answer your questions and instill a bit of ease in ownership, pride in ownership, and confidence.

Charles - Nokomis, FL

Dave sold my boat for an acceptable price and in a month. He is one of the best sales people along with John I have met. They always deal with facts and information and never did I catch them " selling" Will recommend them to anyone buying or selling a boat Thank you Bill 9/6/13

Bill - Sarasota, FL

John I would like to take this opportunity to tell you what a great pleasure it was to both meet you and work with you on the purchase of my 2006 Four Winns. From start to finish you showed great professionalism and made the whole process very easy with your knowledge of the boat and follow-up with any questions I had. I would also commend Todd and the entire staff at Coastal Marine for the time they took to answer any questions or deal with any problems quickly and efficiently. When it is time to buy my next boat or sell this one, I will call no one else. Thank you

David - Cape Coral, FL

I bought a 22' Shamrock from CMC and John was fantastic. This was my first time purchasing a boat from a broker and I couldn't be happier. He was responsive to all my questions and really seemed to have my best interests at heart. The next time I am in the market for a boat, the first call I'll make will be to John.

Scott - Melbourne, FL

We have mo regrets whatsoever. Thank you John and Coastal Marine Center !!!!

Dave - Livonia, MI

I purchased a 21 foot Pro-Line from John Mazur. He made it a smooth and easy process and he was great to work with. After the purchase he helped launch it for the first time, taking time from his personnel duties. I would recommend him to anyone looking for or looking to sell a boat. Thanks John

Barry - Cape Coral, FL

We worked with our salesman John from the beginning of our boat hunting mission. He had the perfect boat in mind for us and did everything necessary to make us happy customers. He made multiple contacts with the previous owner on our behalf to get us as much information as we wanted. He truly went above and beyond his call of duty to make this sale a success. He has earned our loyalty and trust and we will definitely use him for our next boat purchase.

Randy - Ft. Myers, FL

From the first phone conversation I had with our salesperson John Mazur to us taking delivery of our beautiful boat. We received outstanding customer service. Attention to detail, every questions answered, all the service details taken care of with Todd. The test drive of our boat with Capt. Rick. This boat purchase was by far the best experience in buying we have ever had! We are excited to have a great boat and many thanks to all at Coastal Marine. We will recommend Coastal Marine as a wonderful place to buy your first or next boat!!!

Tracy - Plant City, FL

I have been looking for a replacement boat for over a year and had reservations about getting a boat out of state. I can truly say working with Coastal Marine has been a pleasure; the associate sales staffs were very professional and help me to complete my purchase a no brainer. Thanks Dave and Todd the boat is as you said and the pictures told the story. Maybe I can bring it back down there and show the smile on my face. Thanks again. And to coin a phrase from you guy’s "Happy Boating" :)

Earl - Lanham, MD

Additionally I appreciate all of the extra lengths that you went to in making this the easiest boat purchase that I have ever made. You delivered a great deal with great service to match A-1 all the way. Thank you. kindest regards, Tommy

Tommy - Colombia, LA

Dave, Thanks for everything. Your timely phone calls as well as the youtube videos posted were very helpful and comforting in the purchase of my first boat. You even paid for a cooler and a seat cushion that was missing from the boat. Very nice customer service. I am enjoying it thoroughly and everything works as advertised. Keep doing what you are doing. Thanks again from a very happy first time boat owner! Allen

Allen - Destin, FL

We are enjoying the 237 yellow Hurricane that we bought from you. Now my son who lives on Sodus, Bay, near Lake Ontario in upstate New York would like to get a used Hurricane. We realize it would have to be transported. So he would like a 21' I/O used Hurricane priced in the low 20's. Please let me know if you have anything to offer.

Gary - Bradenton, FL

Rocky did a great job, the boat arrived safe and on time. Thanks Dave, you went above and beyond for me and I appreciate that. I will recommend you guys with confidence.
