I just wanted to call out again the excellent job Kim Dumas performed on my recent purchase of a used 2018 Monterey 355 SY that was located in Gig Harbor, WA. Currently, the boat is en route to San Diego via truck.

I won’t buy or sell a boat without a professional boat broker. And that is how Kim performs. She knows I have super high standards and am detailed-oriented. Since she helped me sell my previous boat in April 2021, she’s endured my boat shopping over the last 1 ½ years. She never questioned why I asked many questions of the selling broker through her.  She made sure that the selling broker would answer the questions---and if the answers weren’t sufficient, Kim never complained nor told me to lower my standards when I moved on to another vessel.

I am glad that she focuses on the brokerage business within OneWater.   Sure, new boats are nice, but there is always a secondary and tertiary market. And just as Sewell wrote in his book Customers for Life, it is so important to create and maintain those relationships because of the cost to acquire a new customer versus the cost to maintain a current customer. Kim understands that well.

My appreciation for the job that Kim Dumas performed on this purchase.

Wanted to thank Kim for a wonderful experience handling the sale of my vessel. With Kim's experience in sales and Denison's aggressive advertising, my vessel sold in less than one month. Thanks Kim

In mid 2020, my wife and I began searching for a boat. Living in the San Francisco Bay Area, we traveled to look at boats all over the Bay Area, the Delta, Stockton and even Sacramento. Not finding anything to our liking, we continued our search online. It was through our online search that we connected with Kim Dumas and Denison Yacht Sales in San Diego. Kim was a dream come true! She understood exactly what my wife and I wanted in a boat and she made it her mission to find us the perfect vessel. She was never “on the sell” and always put our interests first. She located the perfect boat for us — a 2006 Sea Ray 340 Sundancer! Being 600 miles away, we depended upon Kim to be our advocate and arrange for a sea trial, vessel and mechanical surveys, and haul out. She handled all negotiations with the seller and made sure that all i’s were dotted and t’s crossed. Kim even helped arrange for suggested maintenance and repairs and went so far as to go shopping with us to help us accessorize our new boat. Kim was extremely professional, always available and eager to satisfy whatever concern we may have had at the time. It will soon be one year since we added “Carol’s Cruiser” to our family and we couldn’t be happier. We have had a blast during one of the most challenging times in the history of our country with COVID. We took her out to the Golden Gate and made memories that will be with us for the rest of our lives. We can’t wait to have fun and make more memories this boating season. If you’re in the market for a boat, Kim Dumas can get it done for you. Thank you Kim!

“I listed my boat for sale with Kim Dumas at Denison Yachting in San Diego during Covid. The boat sold at fair market price and I received my money in 33 days.  Kim is  honest, seasoned and provided high quality referrals necessary to prepare the boat for sale.  She was a dual broker (listing & buyer’s agent) and represented both parties well.  I would use Kim again and do not hesitate to recommend her.”

I was very pleased with the way Kim Dumas handled both me and the yacht sale. She went above and beyond to make the sale happen. She always returned my calls promptly and answered questions during the sale.  I appreciated all the knowledge she provided to help make the purchase happen. I would never consider buying or selling a yacht without Kim as my yacht broker.
