It’s been said that there are two great days in a boat owner’s life: the day he buys the boat and the day he sells it. Bill Bergin, co-owner of Sandy Hook Yachts, believes that may very well be true. However, he’s ecstatic he has had the pleasure of being a part of both those days for thousands of clients over the past 34 years.
The truth is, for the vast majority of boat owners, there are countless days filled with family, friends and adventure. Owning a boat, he says, “allows you to see the sunrise and sunset on the water whenever time permits. The only thing that can get in the way is the weather.”
“At Sandy Hook Yachts, we are selling a lifestyle. Our clients work hard and play hard. They hope a boat will allow them time to relax and get away from their hectic professional lives,” Bergin says.
Sandy Hook Yachts’ founders, Bergin and his partner, Hank Hartmann, opened for business in Sea Bright in 1983. The company’s main business is yacht brokerage; it sells boats for clients much like a realtor sells homes. Sandy Hook has a large inventory of new and pre-owned yachts and is the only dealer of Sabre and Back Cove boats in NJ. The company has a strong reputation for excellent customer service.
The day someone purchases a boat is a great day, the yacht broker observes, but the day they sell it is often more somber. Sometimes they have to sell their boat because they are moving away from the water, or their family has grown or someone is unable to live the lifestyle anymore. Other times, it’s because they are buying a bigger boat.
“We buy and sell yachts and boats. A yacht is a home away from home while a smaller boat provides for family adventure,” Bergin adds. “If you feel like you would like to own a boat, we have 34 years of experience to help you find the right one.”
