Carl Olivier from 5 Oceans Marine Group has just recently sold our beloved catamaran Tranquilo and I would like to express our sincere appreciation for Carl’s huge efforts in getting this done in a relatively short space of time. Being from South Africa, we were unfamiliar with the boat selling process in the Caribbean and USA and started asking our fellow cruisers if anyone had any recommendations. The name Carl Olivier came up quite a few times but we decided to send out emails to the various yacht brokers. The response was excellent, however, Carl stood out from the rest by answering any questions/concerns we had, promptly and efficiently. He even assisted with information that didn’t have anything to do with the sale. It was then that we decided to give him a central listing.

Listing with Carl turned out to be the best decision we could have made as he had potential buyers almost immediately. Although not in his job description, upon arriving in the BVI, he even helped us prepare Tranquilo for our first viewing. He kept us updated on a daily basis and guided us through some very stressful surveys and viewings. He helped us find the best places to have a few issues resolved during the survey process and kept his cool when we were losing ours.

It only took a few months before he sold Tranquilo. By then we were in Ft. Lauderdale and even when the sale was done and dusted, he remained in contact with us, updating us on any post sale information.

We would have no hesitation in recommending him as a broker and wish to thank him once again for all his hard work and all the success for the future.
