LARRY SHAFFER’S LISTINGS
“Larry embodies all-around excellence not only as a boat broker, but also as a person. His character shines bright in his dedication to the client, commitment to the integrity of the process, honesty (even when the answers were hard), unending patience listening to our needs and desires, and the perseverance to find just the right boat that even exceeded our expectations! He expertly and successfully guided us through the process of buying our dream boat, a Lagoon 450 F.
He is very experienced and extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of catamarans, sailing, and boating in general. He encouraged us, coached us, steered us in the right direction, and gave us sound, expert advice. Larry is more than willing to go the extra mile for his clients. In the end, he became so much e than our broker, he became a friend. Larry has our deep respect and highest recommendation.”
“We are so glad we chose to have Larry help us in our search for the perfect catamaran for our family! Larry was educational, honest, and simply over delivered! We would highly recommend you use Larry for your search, you’ll be glad you did!”
“As new sailors starting our journey with Just Catamarans, Larry was incredible in helping us understand what types of vessels would fit our long-term goals and keeping us focused on the things that would be important to us on this new adventure.”
We just want to tell you how glad we are that we found you 3 years ago when we bought “First Wave”. We immediately felt confident with you and knew we had a trustworthy advocate on our side. You were available for every concern-major, minor, and ridiculous. As it was our first boat, we could not have followed through with a purchase without your expertise.
Then…who could ever have imagined that we would get caught in the eye of Dorian. Our wonderful boat could not be repaired. When we decided to look for another catamaran, Scott and I never even talked about who we would call. You immediately jumped into action sending us options and discussing pros and cons of different models. I can’t believe we found another “perfect boat” thanks to your knowledge. We have been provisioning and are heading off on her in a few weeks.
Hey Larry…Thank you for all you did…You did a great job…
