    I am writing in behalf of Bill Kocis, regarding my recent and past sales experiences. I would like to just say that Bill’s character as a salesperson and listing agent are outstanding, many years ago I purchased my first boat where I needed to use a broker, and Bill was the listing agent. I made an offer and in less than a few days a deal was made, and we were very happy with the purchase.

    Just recently I listed my boat with United Yacht Sales and this time Bill was representing the buyer and because I have a relationship with Bill the negotiations when very well. In fact, I do believe if Bill wasn’t representing the buyer at some stages in the ordeal the deal would’ve not happened. I think because of his attention to detail and his honesty, we were able to overcome what could’ve been a major problem, and that was helping the bank see the value in my boat, and keeping the buyer interested. Therefore, I would highly recommend Bill and United Yacht Sales.

     So, I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Bill Kocis and United Yacht Sales!

    Happy New Year!  I wanted to thank you for the sale and purchasing of my boats this past Fall.  You are truly fortunate to have someone as skilled and knowledgeable as Bill Kocis, on your staff. He was always available and went out of his way to help.

     You can be assured that I will recommend United Yacht Sales and Bill to anyone in the market or selling a boat!

     Thanks again!

    I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all the help Bill Kocis gave me with the purchase of the 38 foot Luhrs the “Double Take”. His expertise and hard work was pivotal in constructing the sale. Bill was able to steer us in the right direction for dockage, insurance, and financing. He was always readily available for any questions and was a pleasure to work with.

    I will be very happy to recommend Bill Kocis in the future for all yacht sales to all personal and professional friends.

    I would like to thank you for the excellent service that you provided on the purchase of the 53 Viking convertible. Your attention to detail and helping me make the right connections made everything go very smoothly.  I feel that you went far beyond what could be reasonably expected from a broker. I was also very impressed with the business associates that you introduced me to that were so instrumental in the financing.  Also, thank you for overseeing the repairs of the minor issues found during the survey. The surveyor you recommended was extremely thorough and very knowledgeable. Finally thanks for connecting me with captain Bob he is awesome!  I am sure this will be a lasting relationship.

    Once again thank you and I look forward to see you again.

Bill grew up on the water fishing for anything that would bite. His background and knowledge comes from hands on experiences being around boats his whole life. Bill’s fishing experience started with crabbing and graduated to marlin and tuna fishing. He has fished waters from New York to Florida, Bahamas, Caribbean, Costa Rica, and Panama. Bill’s history of fishing the east coast comes with multiple tuna and marlin tournament wins. The years on the water fishing or boating has given Bill the knowledge and experience that he is willing to pass on to his clients to help them find the right boat.

Bill also has a strong following of clients in the brokerage industry and has been at it for over 25 years. A tremendous background of experience and enormous clientele allows Bill to move boats quickly. He managed his family owned marina, Cape May Marine for 28 years before turning his full attention to sales. Knowledge of marina operations, service and sales provides him with a full understanding of boat ownership and allows Bill to put his clients into the right boat that suits their needs. Give Bill a call to discuss listing or purchasing your next boat.

Bill has been a top broker for UYS since 2011 and the top broker in 2014. He has been on fire so far this year and is selling most everything he gets a chance to sell. Bill knows how to get the job done.

Bill and United Yacht Sales look forward to helping you now and in the future.
