Weber Yachts

Customer Testimonials

We have purchased several boats over the years, each time from a dealer. This year we were looking for a particular boat that was respectfully used. After viewing a boat listed by Weber Yachts, we decided to let their representative, Andy Schneider, help with our search. What a fine decision that was.... Andy found the perfect boat for us in Cumming, GA. He traveled to GA to meet us for a close examination and sea trial. After agreeing to a deal, Andy took great care to make the interstate purchase process seamless. After arranging for winter storage in GA, Andy assisted in having the boat delivered to Chicago. After delivery, Rich Rieck examined every system on the boat and made recommendations for maintenance. In dealing with Andy, Rich, and Chris Weber over the past several months, I have found Weber Yachts to far surpass the boat buying experiences I have had in the past.

“Weber Yachts was extremely helpful in assisting us with not only selling our current boat, but finding and negotiating the purchase of our 2007 Sea Ray 48 Sundancer.  Beyond our expectations, both Andy and Chris at Weber Yachts also provided some excellent contacts in the area of financing, insurance, survey and transport.  With so many details that can be overwhelming when purchasing a used boat, Weber Yachts was there at every turn which certainly made the process much easier and enjoyable!”

I met Andy Schneider after inquiring about a boat I found on Boattrader. Andy was prompt, courteous, attentive and professional throughout my entire purchase. I was reluctant with the purchase as I was from New Jersey and I was not able to come and see the boat which was located in the Chicago area. He recommended several surveyors and was open to me selecting my own. He also recommended trucking companies to ship the boat. He was extremely helpful and I would highly recommend him. If I ever look to purchase a new boat (as I love the one he sold me so I wouldn't think of replacing it) he would be my first call. It is nice to know that there are people out there that stand behind their words!

To the Weber Yachts team,


I have never written a testimonial let alone a critique of services rendered but my experience with your company in it's sale of my boat compells that I share with others. I expected that you would list the boat, advertise it for sale , show her and in time find a buyer. You did far more.
The boat's winter home port was on the Okeechobee Florida waterway near Ft Myers at a private residence. A wonderful safe place for hurricane season but much too remote for potential buyers. She was stocked to be ready for her next Bahamas cruise with all of our personal effects aboard. The boat needed to be moved and our things removed. Our dilemma was that our home is on Mobile Bay far from the boat.

You took charge immediately and moved Star Fisher to a first class marina on the coast that was known as a trawler destination to place her among potential buyers. Then you removed all our belongings and shipped them to us. Next you organized a virtual tour for website advertising and not being satisfied with your photos took her into the harbor to get more attractive photos. At the same time you brought the boat to mechanical perfection by identifying and correcting all the little problems that arose since we were last aboard. Thus the boat was rendered ideal for showing and in the ideal location for that purpose without us ever having to turn a finger.

Quickly following that extensive effort you put the vessel under contract for her sale that was , as always ,contingent upon inspection and sea trial. Not being content to rest upon your laurels and risk the contract not closing , you entered Star Fisher in the Trawler Fest show at Stuart and personally piloted her across the state (a two day trip) where you remained aboard to show the boat for two more days and then devoted still another two days to her return to Ft Myers. The effort was fruitful because it developed excellent leads at Trawler Fest that likely would have resulted in sale. The existing contract closed rendering these leads moot but I can tell you they were of a great deal of comfort to us. Finally you organized the correction of deficiencies disclosed in the survey and professionally closed the sale without our ever having to leave home.

This extraordinary level of service as well as the results obtained warrant praise. Thanks for your help.

I contacted Weber Yachts in spring 15 to look at a boat they had listed. Follow up, appointment time, knowledge and most importantly insight shined through in our first meeting. Chris and I were on the phone regularly for the next several months looking at and making offers on other vessels. Always with the one he had listed on the back burner. Although he didn’t get a commission for selling my boat, he offered insight throughout my sales process. BTW that’s a lot of work and headache. Over time we came to an agreement on the first boat we looked at. It was Chris that helped schedule the logistics of getting the inspected surveyed and sea trialed. The transformation of this vessel from the first time I saw it to seeing it again in the water was amazing. Chris and his team personally prepped it for inspection. An amazing amount of work goes into a transaction and it all seemed smooth because of his commitment to service. He graciously offered an afternoon to run the boat out on the lake and around the docks. I am a better captain from what I learned that day. Our new beauty is back home in Door County WI and moving into the next stage of my boating life was made possible by Chris and Weber Yachts.

Thank you for everything.

I was fortunate enough to stumble across Weber Yachts, and Chris Weber, when I started my search for a larger boat (yacht) back in March.  Chris was a great partner in helping my wife and I find our diamond in the rough.  We knew exactly what we wanted. Chris did not try to sell us or have us look at what we were not interested in.  He talked to me several times early-on to understand what we were looking for and what we were willing to spend.

With my ridiculously busy schedule, I would likely still be looking for a boat a year from now.  Because of Chris' willingness to take ALL of the heavy-lifting off my plate, we are the proud owners of a 2004 Azimuth 39 Fly.  We took possession on Saturday, May 2nd.

I could write a novella about everything Chris did during the process of looking for a boat, negotiating with the seller's broker, acquiring, driving from Grand Haven to Chicago, coming back the second day in the harbor to ensure I was comfortable docking the boat (on a SUPER windy day), and helping me with a couple minor issues in the first couple weeks of having the boat.

I told my wife "I don't know what we did to deserve such great treatment from Chris?!". When I shared this with Chris he gave me the best answer you could all hope for....." This is how we treat all of our customers :)".  

I was SO comfortable with Chris not being a "pushy sales guy" that I brought him to a party on my first night in the harbor.  Chris hung-out all evening and my dock-mates had the same impression of Chris that I had.

I would ABSOLUTELY recommend Weber Yachts from both a buyers or sellers perspective.  The company is mature well beyond it's few years existence.  Chris Weber is mature beyond his years of owning his own business.

The true test of a GREAT sales person is that when you buy something you don't feel like you have been sold something.  I have come through this experience of the second most significant purchase in my life feeling spectacular about how things have worked out.

Thank you to Chris and his team at Weber Yachts!!

I would definitely recommend Weber yachts for buying or selling your boat. We had a great experience. We used Chris and his partner Rich to buy our 2nd boat. We never felt like we were getting "sold". We felt that they were honest and trustworthy and in it for the long haul. They were knowledgeable, always available and very accommodating. We got a great boat and we are so excited to use it in the upcoming summer. We are also going to use them to sell our current boat as well. Definitely recommend Weber Yachts and Chris as your broker!! They are awesome!

I'd like to make a plug for Weber Yachts. Jeff had found this boat some time ago, but hadn't pursued it because he thought it was a saltwater boat, and he thought it would be too hard to get her home from Maryland. Several other brokers were aware of Jeff's dream to own an Egg Harbor, and they probably knew about this boat too, but had done nothing to follow up on it. When Chris learned of Jeff's dream, he researched this boat and determined that, for all intents and purposes, she is a freshwater boat. He also found us a highly qualified, affordable captain to help us get her home to Waukegan. Without Chris' drive, innovation, motivation, and expertise, we would not be the proud owners of a 43' Egg Harbor. If you are looking for a boat, Chris is the broker you should work with.

Rich,

Penny and I would like to tell you how pleased we are with your bro-
kerage service. We listed our 11 Meter Trojan International with you with excel-
lent results. You were very professional with your follow up and sales expertise. Your help and advice was right on, resulting in a sale in a short period of time. We would not hesitate to recommend Weber Yachts to anyone.

You really came through for us and we greatly appreciate your service.

Chris,

I just want to say what pleasant experience it was in dealing with you. This is the third boat I have purchased and you made it the easiest of them all. I appreciate your candidness, transparency and honesty in the whole process of the purchase. All purchases should be this easy and straight-forward. As you know, I was also dealing with two other brokers, Your professionalism and sincere willingness to deliver a great service experience has been unmatched. Thank you also for going the extra mile and spending a full day teaching me how to work and maneuver this beautiful boat. We are having a wonderful summer enjoying our purchase from Weber Yachts. I will highly recommend you to anyone looking to make a purchase or sell their boat! Thanks again Chris
