In the car driving away from the pier, Glenda said what I had been thinking! ” When we get our boat -it will be from Rick” And She is a great judge of people. Thanks again”

We are very pleased with the work that Rick Zern has done. He is an all-around good person to deal with; capable, reliable and pleasant to work with. -2003 Beneteau 311 owner

Without qualification, I heartily recommend Rick Zern to anyone considering a purchase or listing. He has proven that he understands the meaning of service before, during, and after the sale. Having been in professional sales for many years, I appreciate dealing with a person of such high quality, and it speaks well of your company that you have such a member of your team.
– SM, happy MYS customer

Great news about your new location and sales force in Mobile. I have known Rick Zern for many years, and believe that he will be very good at selling yachts. He is so knowledgable about all aspects of boats. He is one of my main “go to” guys whenever I need help of any sort with my boat. What a wonderful addition to your MYS team.”
