Jim & Heather Barrett - Buyers of Valiant 42


 

I wanted to recognize the outstanding service that Bernie Jakits provided (and still is providing).  The term “service” doesn’t justify or explain how Bernie engages with us.  

From the first moment we inquired about a listing, to the last drop of water off her hull for the seasonal haulout of our new boat, Bernie was there.  Any question or concern, Bernie was there.  Day or night, Bernie was there.  

When the complex logistics of delivering our boat seemed to always change, Bernie adapted his schedule to meet ours.  When the inevitable problems occurred no matter how big or small, Bernie gave us sound advice, and went to bat for us when we needed it.

His relentless energy and positive attitude is definitely contagoius.  With Bernie, nothing can’t be overcome.  Without him, we would have been lost in a process that I now know would swallow up many people looking to enter the sailing world.
