Robert was our sales rep on our first houseboat purchase. Robert has vast experience in boating and it shows when he met us to look at our first boat on Dale Hollow. He is very knowledgeable about a wide array of boat questions. When negotiations began on buying the boat he handled everything for... us. After the sale he went above and beyond in preparing the boat for a move from Dale Hollow to Lake Cumberland. We would highly recommend Robert for any boat sale you may be considering.read more

We started looking for a boat with a limited amount of knowledge of what kind of houseboat we were looking for. Ceysha was very helpful the very first phone call to try to figure out what kind of boat would fit our needs. She was then able to show us multiple boats. Ceysha is extremely patient and... very helpful giving information and her knowledge while we looked at several boats. When we found the one that we decided on she has been invaluable in finding all the information and put us in contact with people that could help us in every aspect of getting things done on the boat. Ceysha has been there every step of the way and continues to answer any questions that have come up about the boat or houseboating in general. I highly recommend anyone who is looking to purchase a boat to call Ceysha and you won't be disappointed.!read more
