What our customers say…

 

We have recently bought a boat through Q7 and specifically Paul Miletta. We could not be happier and more surprised by their terrific customer service and very professional approach. Paul has been very clear and specific all the way through and has helped us immensely in choosing the boat we now have which is fully suited to our needs. I would recommend Paul and Q7 to anyone looking to buy a new or used boat – he really does have your best interests at heart. I am sure this will be a long term relationship. Thanks Paul.

I offered to write a testimonial for Paul and Q7 Marine by this I mean I was not asked to write one. I would also for the purpose of readers of this like to keep it very short and to the point. I was seeking to purchase a 28ft Bayliner and I had three hits on boatsales.com and yes I visited and looked at all three. However it is not what you are buying that is always the most important, it is who you are buying from, do you trust them, will they tell you the truth, do they care about you and your circumstance, will they take the time to listen to you and finally whilst at the time I did not appreciate this will they look after you in the coming weeks after purchase to make sure you are content, offering help and advice be that on the phone or in person, the after sales CARE that Paul and Q7 offered to me has been up and above and for this reason alone I write this testimonial and would be more than happy for Paul to on pass my mobile number to any potential purchaser so I can advise in greater detail.

Paul and the team thank you for your service and support it separates you from the rest and I now know I was right in my decision to purchase from the Q7 team.

Dear Paul,

I have just returned to Sydney from two months away in Queensland, having moved Gypsea Fever up to the Whitsundays for the winter cruising season. I visited the Sydney Boat show today, and will return to Airlie Beach next week for more cruising and island fun.

The trip North was relatively trouble free, and I believe the upgrades and changes have now all settled down well. Jane is delighted with how the project has turned out, and we have been fortunate to share this maiden voyage with some close friends.

It is remiss of me not to have thanked you and Mark earlier for your outstanding help, advice and guidance in assisting with the purchase of Gypsea Fever. I believe Mark made four trips to the US for this project – one to meet me at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, and to show me brokerage options in the Florida area; Another to meet Arthur DeFever to preinspect Gypsea Fever on my behalf; A third to attend at the sea trials, documentation finalisation and initial refit arrangements, and a fourth to deliver the boat from San Diego to LA and to supervise the loading on the ship.

Then he was in Brisbane for the offloading and briefing your recommended captain and crew for the delivery to Sydney.

In between, you and he negotiated with many shippers, seeking the best freight rate, arranged insurance, secured good exchange rates for the funds transfers, accounted accurately and promptly, recommended competent and experienced professionals to undertake conversion and compliance work for Australian requirements, and were always ready to share your vast experience when I asked for advice.

It has been a pleasure and a privilege to work with you, Mark and Q7 Marine, and I have no hesitation in recommending your services to your future clients.
My grateful appreciation and thanks to you both.

Kindest regards,

Dave Behrens

 

My recent experience with Q7 has been excellent. I purchased a 37′ flybridge cruiser through Paul and Mark last September.  Although having three decades of boating experience behind me with three boats, it had mainly been with smaller vessels.  So I found their advice and counsel was very valuable.  Yes, they are in the business of selling boats and of course you would expect them to do their best to settle a transaction, however without any hesitation I’ll say that their business integrity was without fault. I found nothing but open and frank responses to my questions about the boat. And to complete the picture, they also pointed out things that I was not thinking about.   They were acting in my best interests but I could also see they were acting in the best interests of the seller, an excellent balance. And I should point out that their “free after-sales service”, to which they have no obligation to offer, has been fantastic.  They have always been available on the phone for a chat, or in person to offer their own time, eg. with marina movements, no obligation introductions to the wider marine family, and even with some on-board tuition.  When the time comes to upgrade to my fifth boat, they will be my first port of call.  I admire their business integrity and highly recommend Q7.

Raeleigh & I would just like to send you a small note to say a big thank You and Mark for the service that you both provided to Raeleigh and I during the purchase of our Riviera 39.

During the process, we found You and Mark to extremely helpful with your knowledge of the vessel, being honest with questions that we asked and also going out of your way at times to assist with the survey etc.

You both worked with the Vendor and Us to obtain a good outcome for all concerned.

Even after the sale was completed, we were not left to fend for ourselves, with many a question being answered and assisting with Trades etc., so as to have our transition into Cruising go smoothly.

I have already recommend Q7 to friends and family and if the need arises, will be happy to either buy or sell through Q7 in an instant.

Even My Father, who had owned his own business for over 40 years commented to me, ‘what a pleasure it was to see some business people that really enjoy their work’.

We both look forward to catching up, when next on Sydney Harbour.

We recently purchased a 40 foot Silverton Sport Bridge and Q7 were the brokers that facilitated the purchase on our behalf.  We had previously owned smaller leisure vessels and this was our first foray into a

larger boat purchase. Very daunting indeed but the whole process was made much easier by Mark and Paul at Q7. Their professional advice and support throughout the entire process made us feel much more

comfortable. They assisted us with survey advice, slipping and mechanical personnel to undertake the necessary checks etc.

If you are looking for a broker to work for you with good honest advice then we couldnt recommend Paul and Mark of Q7 Marine highly enough.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Paul and Mark from Q7 Marine for the safe delivery of our Azimut 62 motor yacht.

We are overwhelmed with the service that Q7 Marine has provided to us. From finding our vessel in the United States to the delivery to our berth in Sydney. All was handled with extreme professionalism.

Mark used his expertise in locating our vessel throughout his wide network of overseas dealers then sea trailing on our behalf. Paul is based in Sydney office and was responsible for the paperwork, documentation and money transactions.

I would thoroughly recommend Paul and Mark from Q7 Marine as our experience was handled very professionally, they both had time for us during the initial boat selection process and throughout, till the deal was closed. The quoted price was accurate and with no extra to pay on landing.

Great team, great experience and great boat, would do it all again and recomend Q7 Marine.

Thanking

I have recently purchased a Sunseeker Superhawk 43 from Paul at Q7 Marine . I cannot speak highly enough of his professionalism and his attention to detail when when helping me with my first substantial boat

purchase.

Paul was only too happy to help us in any way shape or form and I can highly recommend him and his team to you if you are deciding to buy a boat through him. I would be delighted to field any questions that

you may have and I would be happy to refer Paul and his team to anyone.

Paul, just a quick note to thank you so much for your professional and friendly service. We didnt know that perchasing a boat could be so stress-free.

From walking in that door to delivery of our new boat, which Vicki and I think is fantastic,and enjoy so much. There is no doubt that your local and global knowledge of boats and pricing is certainly what swayed

the both of us to use your company.

I would have no doubt in recommending your company to any of our friends or work colleges should they be looking to join the over fifty lifestyle we now enjoy. Thanks again.

Dear Paul,

Firstly I would like to thank you for all of your assistance during the purchase of our Meridian 411. You made sure that we were looked after at every stage of the purchase. The knowledge you have and the

ability to analyse the situation meant that we have the boat that meets and fulfills all of our requirements.

Even after the purchase, you have continued the excellent service and attention. If we had to do it again or even sell our boat we wouldn’t even think twice about who we would go to. We couldn’t possibly speak

higher of you and recommend you and Q7 Marine to anyone that is thinking of purchasing a boat.

We recently took delivery of our Silverton cruiser from the USA. The process was remarkably smooth and quick thanks to Mark and Paul at Q7 marine

In all, our boat arrived within 8 weeks from the initial meeting with Mark at Q7 to discuss selection of vessel to the time it was tied off at our berth.

Q7 provided a great service with their knowledge of the boat market and logistics, they demonstrated their worth, saving us thousands of dollars.

Above all we greatly appreciate Mark and Paul’s integrity throughout the whole process.  Transparency of costs and transactions served to reassure us we selected the right brokers. When hiccups occurred Q7

acted professionally resolving matters to our utmost satisfaction.

On such a large investment we would never have gone it alone; Q7 got us the right boat at the best price in no time.

I engaged Paul Miletta from Q7 Marine Cabarita to list my Riviera for sale. Paul and his staff did a great job advertising and promoting the sale resulting in it being sold within a short period of time.

During the sale process and afterwards Paul provided great support and advice. Since then Paul has also assisted me in looking for another boat. After purchasing one he has been a great help in organising

insurance and helping me source contractors for other services I required.

My experience with Paul and Q7 has all been positive and I would recommend him and his services to any boat buyer and seller.
