"I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for the professional manner you exhibited in handling the sale of my 2006 Sea Ray. You [Alex Rowe] consistently demonstrated a high commitment to communication and follow-up and provided me with valuable insight into the challenges of selling my boat in a difficult economic environment. I have no doubt your persistent and tenacious approach will serve future prospective ship buyers and sellers well."

"We contacted Alex Rowe in August 2018 on one of his listings. His diligence and persistence in keeping in contact with us during our search was the difference of us buying one of his listings! It was a great experience overall, and we appreciated how well the purchase went! Great job! "
"We used SYS Yacht Sales to sell our 56’ Carver Voyager. Alex Rowe was amazing! We are new to Sarasota so Alex coordinated necessary repairs to the boat to get it ready to list. At one point Alex spent a couple hours getting greasy helping with repairs! He then helped us stage the boat and hired a photographer to take photos and drone video. We had our first offer within a week!! Throughout the process Alex always made himself available to answer questions and handle issues. During the inspection process Alex was a firm negotiator which saved us thousands of dollars. Alex is very knowledgeable and truly goes above and beyond. Thanks Alex!"
"Alex was absolutely fantastic! He not only spent a lot of time during our decision making process, ensuring that we understood everything about our prospective boat, but was invaluable in assisting us in locating and securing all of the services necessary, including boat survey, boat transport, maintenance services, temporary dockage and haul out services. His knowledge and experience in the field, especially as it concerns Sea Ray products is outstanding and his customer rapport is as good as I have ever experienced. He truly went above and beyond in making sure everything was handled in an efficient manner and that we were completely at ease with everything."
"I really enjoyed working with Alex so much He was very thorough and knowledgeable about Listing our intrepid. He had a lot of people looking at the boat and we got a good offer and sold the boat. Alex couldn’t of done it without you. Thank you!"
"Alex Rowe has been helping my family with everything pertaining to boating since we moved to Florida. Most recently he helped us acquire a 420 Sundancer at a price we didn't think was possible. In addition, he's steered us to the right people when it comes to maintaining our boats (reputable boat cleaners, mechanics, canvas companies, etc.). He's helped bail me out of a few jams I found myself in pertaining to engine issues by getting the right person to the marina within hours and this was long after he sold me the boat. If you need to buy/sell a boat and want continued service long after the transaction, Alex is your guy..."
"Alex helped me with the sale of my 390 Sundancer, Muy Loco. He drove 8 hours from Sarasota and got the deal done for top dollar! What a great experience!"
"I highly recommend working with Alex Rowe. As a sales rep myself, I pay attention to another rep’s responsiveness, follow up and accessibility. Alex is all of the above. His honesty and transparency allowed the boat buying process to be streamlined and executed easily. I would definitely buy another boat from Alex."
"We first met Alex Rowe when we wanted to purchase a power boat for use in Florida. Our previous experience had been sailing boats around Scotland. Alec was very helpful in explaining what was required and suggesting suitable boats. He arranged our first purchase but unlike some sales people he has always kept in touch to see how we are getting on. In the early stages he helped us find some good contractors which is not always easy. We have always found him to be fair and likable and would like to do further business with him if the opportunity arises. We highly recommend Alex if you are looking to sell or purchase a boat."
"Alex helped us with the purchase of a Sea Ray. We were on a strict timeline. Alex made sure everything was taken care of. We couldn’t be happier with the service Alex provided."
