Trent Carroll sold me my beloved yacht Hula Kai nearly 4 years ago. Since then, I have been active with friends purchasing their yachts in various parts of California and delivering them up and down the west coast.My experience with Trent Carroll was a completely different kind of transaction from anyone else I know. Trent was completely professional in the following ways that none of my friends and colleagues experienced from their yacht brokers. Trent followed through and kept his word about everything he said. He took care of details that I overlooked. My sea trial was a real sea trial, not a putt around the basin. We went to sea for the afternoon. He listened to my needs and met my expectations. During the escrow period I never saw Hula Kai dirty. Over the past few years I never passed up an opportunity to give Trent a hard time, but the truth of the matter is, I have the utmost respect and appreciation of his professionalism and I consider him a friend. If you are considering a yacht purchase and have the opportunity to work with Trent Carroll, rest assured, you will be working with the best.
