Colin has over 24 years of experience in the boating industry. His factory training from many manufacturers including Sea Ray, Cruisers Yachts, Silverton Yachts, Cobalt, Crownline, Cranchi, MasterCraft, and Nautique offers a comprehensive background in boat sales, providing clients with an exceptional buying or selling experience. Born in England, he was introduced to boating when he was 10 years old, sailing the coast of France and Belgium. He moved to the United States in 1981 where he continued boating in New York, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. In 1993, he settled in Knoxville, TN, after graduating from the University of North Carolina - Asheville. He has had extensive experience in boat manufacturing and marina management and managed new, pre-owned, and brokerage sales. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time on the water with his wife and three sons.
Colin helped me find a Sea Ray 370 Sundancer. I had some specific requests in the boat I was looking for. Colin helped me do a national search, including screening several boats before I saw them on line anywhere. He was quick to inform me what he’d found on some boats that did not meet my requirements, focusing on helping me find the right boat for me, not just a boat for hm to make a sale. I would recommend Colin, and if I need a broker in the future, will be looking to Colin for help. We finally found a 2012 370 sundancer with 125 hours on it. Colin travelled to Branson with us to participate in the survey with me, and support me in the buying process.
Colin Daley loves boats, is very experienced and knowledgeable of all brands, types and sizes of boats. His good nature, honesty, professionalism and sincere desire to find the right buyers for his brokered boats and the right boat for his customers looking to buy a boat makes him a great choice to deal with for anyone in the market to buy or sell any type of boat. You can fully trust all your dealings with Colin will be pleasant and done in a very fair and professional manner. I have been a boater for six decades and have never dealt with anyone better to deal with than Colin.
Highly recommend Colin @ HBG Yacht sales. Colin has not only acted as my selling agent 3 times, but he has also purchased on my behalf twice. Guessing the boat shipped to Brazil was his biggest challenge. Except for signing a few export documents, he handled everything. Complete trust in Colin and his crew. No need to look anywhere else in east TN
