"Kim and her team Rufus, Efrain, and Andrew did outstanding jobs in de-commissioning and commissioning my boat. Everyone was very flexible and did what they could to make the process quick and easy. I would definitely recommend Clarks. Thanks, Mike "

"Jeff, I was looking at a new sundeck 270 yesterday. Fred B helped me. I want you to know that I was very impressed with his help. Hopefully, I will be the owner of the new 270 sundeck."


The Shults on November 8, 2017...

My experience using Tim Manton as my boat broker was extraordinary. My boat had been on the market for 24 months with two different brokers before I listed it with Clark's Landing. In the few months that he had the listing, Tim showed my boat more than the other two brokers combined.


We live 425 miles away from the marina. When we were off the boat for weeks at a time, I would leave her buttoned up, i.e., carpets rolled up, air-conditioning off, etc. Each time he showed the boat Tim boarded her, opened her up, turned on the air-conditioning and made her presentable. That made a big difference to our peace of mind. During one of the bad summer storms, we were off the boat. During the storm, Tim checked on her several times and reported how she was riding in the slip. He also boarded her after the storm to make sure everything was okay, giving us peace of mind from a distance so far away.


When it came to offers, I had a few low-ballers who were just testing the market. Tim was very discreet and discerning. He presented the offers to me in a way that I was confident he was looking out for my best interests. He always carefully laid out the good and bad points of an offer and gave me sound advice regarding potential buyers. In addition to selling my boat, Tim was a pleasure to deal with. He was always available, always professional, always optimistic. I knew I could trust his word and his judgment and had absolute confidence in his ability. Tim is a true exemplar of honesty, enthusiasm, and willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate clients.


To sum up my commendation for Tim, I will just tell you two things. First, I have recommended him to my friends who are considering selling their boat and, secondly, if I get back into the market I will contact him first as a buying agent.


Finally, if I ran Clark's Landing, I would clone him.


Another testimony from The Culotta's on October 21, 2017...

"Jeff - as discussed I wanted to let you know how happy Val and I were with our new Sea Ray and the buying experience. Tim Manton did a great job of helping us with the sale and an even better job of making sure everything was going well after the sale. His customer care attitude was greatly appreciated.

I should also mention that Jen was great to work with. Whether getting me to right person by phone or being a great event coordinator she always came across as helpful and caring. Look forward to seeing you and your staff at follow on Sea Ray events."

The Culotta's on the purchase of their 2017 Sea Ray 240 Sundeck on September 21, 2017...

"I wanted to share with you my recent experiences in the purchase of a 2017 240 Sundeck from Clarks Landing, Kent Island. It went very smoothly and I couldn’t be happier with my boat and I owe it all to Tim Manton! He went above and beyond to make the deal go smoothly without a hitch. And treated me very fairly with regard to my trade. Even now that I have had my boat for a month, he still checks in to make sure I am happy and if I have any questions. I am very lucky to have him as my broker. And couldn’t be happier with my boat!"


The Windmuller's on delivery of their 2017 Sea Ray 400 Sundancer on August 29, 2017...

"We absolutely love our new boat, and Fred did a great job for us. We want to fully enjoy our new boat as a family, and Clarks Landing will be important in on going servicing and support. Thanks so much again, and I sincerely look forward to meeting you in person and working together going forward. Regards!"


Brent on August 10, 2017...

"I just received the boat, your representation of the boat was excellent. It's nice to do business with honesty and integrity, you and your company did a great job, thank you for your help "


The Ferrano's on July 10, 2017...

"Just wanted to express how wonderful our experience has been working with Paul in purchasing our 2008 Sea Ray 240 Sundeck. Throughout the process Paul was dedicated to making sure the boat was in top condition and that we would be happy with our purchase (which we are!). Further, Paul continually reached out keeping us informed of the progress in getting the boat ready and available at the Shady Side location before the 4th of July holiday. Post sale Paul has stayed in touch which has been greatly appreciated."


The Fasano's on July 7, 2017...

"Jeff,

Judy and I have been on cloud nine with the purchase of our new L590 fly.

That said. I felt it important to recognize everyone from Mike S to the entire team who spent many hours preparing and doing the maintenance on the boat prior to delivery. Their expertise on media, engines, performance and prepping the boat. Was all extremely evident.

We had the boat up and down the Chesapeake for the recent holiday and it performed excellent. It's been a terrific experience as was our last purchase.

That said, it wouldn't be right to not recognize Ray Garville who tirelessly found a way to get the finance done! He was special.

As always. Mike is outstanding. You didn't know it but you were competing against marine max in Florida for my business. Without Mike, I would have purchased from them. They had the same boat and were pursuing my purchase.

In the end Mike makes the difference and we felt being loyal to our relationship was important to honor.

Please take the time to thank your entire team!"


The Finger's on July 6, 2017...

"Jeff,

We recently took possession of our new Beneteau 34S, and learned that Clarks Landing is a CLASS operation. From our first introduction to Clarks Landing via Fred Beu at the Annapolis Boat Show last fall, to the purchasing process with Ray and Amy, to the delivery process with Drew, along with Justin, Rick, Chris, Calvin and others, the process was seamless and positive.

Everyone went out of their way to be helpful. Plus, everyone was knowledgeable. This is the 13th boat we have purchased and this experience was by far the best.

The opportunity to spend time with Captain Phil was both educational and added to our boating knowledge. What a great perk!

You have an outstanding team of associates, please give them our congratulations and thanks. We will definitely share our positive experience with other boaters."


Marian on July 5, 2017...

"Hello Clarks Landing Service,

Our service advisor, Kim Chaplin, was & is extremely knowledgeable, super helpful and just plain nice! She went above and beyond for us and we really appreciated it.

All of your work (totally amazing detailing for starters) looks terrific, as did the canvas work done by an outside professional our sales person, Fred Beu, recommended. We are very pleased and would most assuredly recommend your service department. In fact, we did so when at Gibson Island over this past holiday weekend. Thank you for creating a silk purse (boat now) out of a sow's ear (boat before)!!!! "


Roger on June 17, 2017...

"Everything and everyone, especially Kim, was and is very professional and courteous!!!!!!!!!!"


Jay on June 16, 2017...

"I just want to say that Kim Chaplin is absolutely fantastic - totally professional, efficient, good follow-up. I feel on solid ground working with her.

Also, the mechanic at Clark's in Kent Island - I think his name is Andrew - absolutely above and beyond.

Very helpful in explaining the repair situation to me, etc., and very honest. Overall I am extremely please with Clark's Kent Island.

Thank you! "

Mike on April 25, 2017...

"Kim and her team have been and continue to be outstanding. Kim and her team did everything they could to help me as I prepared my boat for storage and commissioning. The fall storage and spring commissioning went with no problems. I would definitely recommend Clarks."
