Customer Testimonials

I just wanted to say thank you to Kyle G and the entire OTHYS staff for making this a great buying experience. From the time I came up from Atlanta to Wilmington for the survey and the sea trail, Kyle has been a pleasure to work with. He kept me informed with frequent status updates and was available to answer the many questions I had. He made the whole buying process very simple. But most importantly, OTHYS stood by the product they were selling. We had an issue with one of the motors, but OTHYS worked diligently to resolve the issue to my satisfaction. The boat is running great and we are very excited about our purchase. We have had many compliments on what great shape she is in. I would recommend anyone looking for a top quality, pre-owned boat to first look at OTHYS.

Just took title to a 2015 Edgewater 240is and could not be happier with the boat, as well as the service and fairness Brian Dressler and the rest of the crew at Off the Hook provided throughout the process. They have some beautiful boats on the lot and will take good care of you.

To Jason, Brian, Allie, Andrew and the Off the Hook Crew, I wanted to thank you for making the purchase of my 21' Steiger Craft a great and memorable experience. I was fortunate to be in the right place at the right time to find a boat I had been looking to get for three years, and you made a stressful process an easy one. From the time I came down from New England to see the boat and meet with Brian and Andrew, the entire process was really pleasant. Brian did exactly what he said he would do and he delivered on his word. I couldn't be happier with the way I was treated and the professionalism of your whole organization. If I ever have a need to look for a boat in the future, I would not hesitate to come back to you and to recommend you. Thank you for helping me get my family fishing boat!! Best wishes, Eddy Kooyomjian Jr. Worcester, MA

It has been a pleasure doing business with Jason Ruegg, and the OTHYS Team. Jason is very knowledgeable and assisted me in getting the price that I was seeking for my Grady White 2012 Gulfstream. He was very patient, and accessible. I would not hesitate to use his brokerage service to sell my next boat. What I most look forward to is the occasion when I am able to purchase the center console we have been discussing. His ability to locate well-cared for vessels that are reasonably priced, is second to none. A casual review of the OTHYS boat listings will provide testimony to the success of this business model. Most of the boats listed have been sold in the last 3 to 6 months, and the listings don’t last long before they are sold. I have worked with, or been approached by many brokers in this business – Jason’s honesty, integrity, and friendly demeanor stand out as an example of the direction all first class boat brokerages should emulate. Thank you for the extraordinary services you have provided.

“Hello, My name is Eddie Merritt and I the proud owner of a Carver 506 Special Edition Motor Yacht purchased from Off the Hook Yacht Sales. Jason Ruegg was my broker and I can say he did everything right to put me in my dream boat. He has also become a friend and we talk frequently. I tell all my boating friends to call Jason before they buy. I know Jason works very hard to get the customer the best boat for the best price. Off the Hook Yacht Sales are the best In every way. Even after the sale Jason was there for me. Jason Ruegg is an honest and loyal boat broker period. . Jason does more than sell boats. He can arrange any service you need from financing to transport. If I ever decide to upgrade Jason is my guy.”

I came …. I saw …… I conquered…well actually we stopped in to look at a boat (a little 17 foot runabout), Had talked with Kyle G. earlier and he said the boat was in excellent shape (had heard that so many times before)

We met Kyle in the office and headed out to the yard, the boat was as he said it would be and more, showed us through the boat, started and ran it and gave us some time to talk it over, said we would buy it and expected to put money down and come back another time to pick it up. Kyle asked us to give him an hour to do paperwork and we would have us ready to go. Didn’t even take an hour and we were hooked up and ready to go. What a great job. My compliments to Kyle and the staff at Off the Hook A GREAT JOB

When we’re ready for a larger boat (you know it will happen) we will come back and see Kyle G.
Thanks again we sure appreciate it

My experience working with Off The Hook Yacht Sales was flawless. The team that I worked with led by Jason Ruegg set expectations, kept me up to speed on the progress of my purchase and made me feel like a priority. I was very nervous about having to go through such a large purchase, but Mr. Ruegg walked me through the entire process start to finish and answered all of my questions thoroughly until I was completely satisfied. During the actual day of purchase I felt no nerves at all because I had 100% confidence the team at Off The Hook and knew they had my best interests at heart. I was able to acquire my dream boat and I was more than pleased with the performance and value. I would strongly recommend to anyone seeking experts in the boating industry to consider Jason Ruegg and his team.

I want to highly recommend Brian Dressler to anyone thinking of selling their boat. He brings a uniqueness to the sale process that I think will set him out above others. Brian started the sale process by giving me actual sale prices for my type of boat that had been sold recently, Not the advertised price but the price the boat actually sold for. Once we agreed on the sale price he went to work getting my boat ready for sale. This is his genius, he water tested my boat, found the center motor was only running on 4 out of 6 cylinders. Had his mechanic fix all the problems at the lowest rate imaginable Then paid on his own to have the boat professionally detailed. Once he had the boat looking and running great, he took fantastic pictures , advertised the boat and within one and a half weeks on the market had the boat sold.

He handled ever aspect of selling my boat, including making sure it was delivered to the new owner in perfect shape. His honesty, attention to detail and incredible skill level make him the one I recommend you contact, you will not be disappointed

I would not buy or sell a boat again without Brian Dressler being involved.

I wanted to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation of your exceptional professionalism from our initial conversation to the final closing transaction of the Carver 33 Super Sport. Until working with Off the Hook Yacht Sales, it was a long and frustrating search in finding the right boat to replace the one lost in Hurricane Sandy and I had the opportunity to work with several brokers and private sellers along the way. It was your unparalleled customer focus that was key in making this sale a success. Given the unique situation and additional complexities of having the seller/broker, vessel, and buyer all located in different states, your guidance and support was invaluable in navigating the process.

Furthermore, your price was exceptionally competitive versus the same models being sold across the country and your representation of the vessel, and its’ excellent condition, by far surpassed anyone’s best expectations. I cannot thank you enough. If there is anyone that has questions or would like to know more about working with Off the Hook Yacht Sales, please let me know and I will be more than happy to share my experience. I look forward to keeping in touch and my next chance to use Off the Hook Yacht Sales.


Kyle Warren,

I wanted to let you know the boat arrived safely. The kids spent the weekend ‘cleaning’ the boat several times. We are going to put it in the water next weekend.

I also want to thank you for your exceptional service and assisting in all aspects in the purchase. Please thank Jamie and Allie as well for their assistance. I was amazed how well the deck looked after removing the cooler. I could not tell where they made the repairs – a top notch job! Despite purchasing from a distance, you made for a smooth transaction. I would highly recommend OTHYS!

Thanks again and I’m sure we will meet up again.
