“Stanton, Just wanted to reach out and let you know how much we love our Swift Trawler. You were absolutely right, it is a perfect boat for us.  We are surprised daily by how well everything functions.  It runs beautifully and is very smooth and stable at very good speeds.  The ability to go 20 + knots is something we did not think we would appreciate as much as we do. On a daily basis, going through the intercoastal, we find ourselves covering great distances with very little effort. The classic styling is also a big plus. We are currently in Savannah Georgia on our second trip and are really enjoying bring this boat down. Just wanted to thank you for steering us in the right direction.” -Happy Customer and fan of Team MYS

“Thank you Stanton. It was a pleasure meeting you at the St. Pete boat show. My thanks also to (your team) and you for handling the sale of Stanley G in such a professional manner and understanding how difficult it was for me to part with her. But, Judy and I won’t swallow the anchor for good so I guess we’ll begin learning what trawlers and tugs are all about and get ready for the next adventure.
Best regards, Bob” -happy customer

“Gentlemen; We had a great trip to the (Beneteau) plant and enjoyed the tour very much. Dan Kimball hosted us and gave us an excellent tour and overview of the plant’s operations. He was very professional and knowledgeable and answered all of our questions. We met and spoke with Barbara in the Q/A lab and were impressed with your quality processes. We were also pleased to see the progress in lean manufacturing and the visible presence of a robust 6 S program. I’ve attached pictures of …our Beneteau 34 (in the snow of all things).
Thanks to you all for setting up the trip and thank you Dan for spending part of your day with us.”
