Our Crew

One of the many features that make Karma Yacht Sales unique in the boating industry is that we function on the team approach to selling and customer service.  This does two things: 1. It ensures that your questions and needs are met during the buying process and the ownership process.  2. It gives you assurance that once the ‘sale’ is over you will continue to know you made the right decision in buying your boat from Karma Yacht Sales.

This approach is what has earned us the coveted Dealer of the Year award from Beneteau and produced happy customers that became second, third and even four time KYS customers.  Our full-time service group works hard from the moment that your boat arrives to commission her and throughout the warranty period to ensure that your experience is positive.  We don’t turn you over to the boat yard or sub-contract the work to another service group after the initial handoff.
