Re: [Amel Yacht Owners] Introduction from Utah
I had a broker and the seller had a broker, neither of which know a thing about Amels. The owner wasn't involved in the sale, nor did he spend any time with me explaining things. Big mistake. If I were to do it again, I would get Joel Potter in the US or the guy in Europe that is so highly recommended (sorry I don't remember his name, it's been mentioned several times here). I would make a 4-7 day period of one on one education part of the purchase price.
I got lucky when Craig Briggs (Sangaris) volunteered to help me bring the boat from Galveston to Ft Lauderdale on my first sail. He taught me more in that few days than I would have learned in a year on my own. Thanks again Craig!!!
