Testimonials

"

Your expertise in catamarans shortened our decision process by educating us on the pros and cons of each type of boat on the market. It is a comfort to realize there are people in this world that demonstrate integrity, charity and friendship. You represent the finest example of that tradition.

I am very happy to say that our experience with 5 Oceans exceeded our expectations. Not only was the service rendered by the brokers very professional at all times, we were also pleasantly surprised by their willingness to go the extra mile to ensure that even the after-purchase processes went smoothly.

My advice to anyone buying a boat, new or used, is to find a real professional, a true buyer-broker with vast experience and integrity, who understands that counting happy customers is far more important than turning a fast dollar.

 When Phillip Berman founded 5 Oceans Marine Group he had no idea how fast it would grow.  All he knew for sure was that he had a life-long passion for voyaging and racing catamarans and that he wanted to share that passion with others and in a manner that no one else in the marketplace had realized at the time: Offering purchasing advice to buyers exclusively.  He wanted to connect with those sailors who were eager to experience the life of the water, the life of the sea and share his extensive knowledge with them by helping match the right sailor with the right yacht.

As a result, 5 Oceans Marine Group's vision went beyond simply working exclusively with buyers to one that focused on putting the sailor first.   It was a simple model: Speak openly about the pros and cons of any yacht for sale with a potential buyer and those buyers will be loyal to the firm because they will come to trust that 5 Oceans Marine Group would find the best boat for their needs not 5 Oceans Marine Group's needs. 
 
5 Oceans Marine Group's mission has expanded along with its geography and staff, but not its core ethical mission statement: Match the sailor to the yacht whether that is a service to the seller or a service to the buyer. In other words, open, transparent discussions are the heart of the transaction. Today, 5 Oceans Marine Group represents both buyers and sellers with the same ethically driven mandate and as a result, we have a virtuous circle of happy buyers who often become happy sellers and return to 5 Oceans Marine Group when the time comes for them to move on to another yacht or another dream.
 
5 Oceans Marine Group has offices in the Philadelphia region where its marketing and management team work. 5 Oceans Marine Group's brokers work around the globe and include three executive brokers, four senior brokers, and five associate brokers in Seattle, Fort Lauderdale and South Carolina.  We recently have added new yacht representatives in Grenada, Guadeloupe and the British Virgin Islands.
