John Osetek

Newport, RI

(401) 465-8634

John's on the water experience is a varied as his marine business experience, from racing Thistles on Lake Ontario as a teenager to acting as operations officer aboard a fleet tanker during his service in the US Navy.

With over thirty years in the marine industry assisting clients in buying, selling, financing, and building power and sailing yachts, John's experience and expertise run from runabouts and daysailers to custom world cruisers. His ten-plus years with Alden Yachts make him a valuable resource for current Alden owners or those interested in purchasing an Alden.


John Osetek is great. I've known him in passing for many years but this was the first time I needed him professionally. I decided to sell my boat in the fall and I called him wondering if we should try now or wait until the spring. He gave me the old "nothing ventured nothing gained" pep talk and we decided to list the boat. We had a full bid offer within 18 hours. John took the lead in arranging visits and a survey with a haul out I really had to do nothing other than operate the boat one day for a sea trial. He made the entire process easy and stress free. Getting an offer in a day didn't hurt!

- Paul Koch - Seller of Freedom 35

We have worked with John on 4 transactions. He is the best at getting deals done in the most professional and delightful way. I highly recommend John.

- Jake Jacobsen - Buyer of Alerion 28

John Osetek is a nice person. To some that is not so important, but to me, there is no quality more important.

- George MacGown - Seller of Hylas 45.5

In the past I have dealt with bad brokers. People who missed appointments, lied, etc. John is a real gem. Honest, friendly and a great source of knowledge.

- Paul March - Seller of Silverton 40

John is a very knowledgeable guy. I can’t talk about his powerboat knowledge but he sure knows sailboats from stem to stern.
John knows how to talk at the right times and, when necessary, to keep his own counsel. He’s a good guy!
Many thanks, John.

- Bill Cote - Seller of Catalina 42 "Sail la Vie"

John Osetek did a fantastic job on a deal he didn't receive a very large commission on. He clearly has his heart in seeing deals work out that result in positive outcomes for all parties. A real gentleman whose actions reflect very highly on your company and the industry as a whole. It was a joy to have him on this sale, and I can't think of any broker I've ever known coming anywhere close to his level of service.

- Buyer of Frers 45

The biggest reason that I had David Walters Yachts involved is the level of professionalism that John Osetek showed me in going through this process. He helped me to explore other similar boat and also was patient with me through the whole process. I do not believe the process would have been this effortless if he were not involved.

- Daniel MacDonald - Buyer of Formula 41

I had been looking at Grand Banks boats for several years, and ultimately saw the boat that I wanted at the right time. I reached out to DWY, and was referred to John Osetek. He was great, asking good questions about what I was interested in, as well as providing some insight about the whole process. John did a great job representing both buyer and seller and navigating the process from end-to-end. I believe we first talked in early May, and closed on July 2. We love our new boat.

- Matthew Barnum buyer of Grand Banks 42

"John Osetek is the perfect broker, full of knowledge and advice worth listening to. He is a joy to work with and did a wonderful job in finding the right buyer and in preparing the boat both before and during the sale. John is a 10!"


- Jake Jacobsen Seller of Maxi Dolphin Cross Current 33

The current and second owners of CARA LYNN have made the ongoing investment in upgrades and proper service.&nbsp;Her classic profile with aft cockpit is a standout wherever she cruises. This exceptionally strong, sea-kindly performance cruising yacht has an exquisite two-stateroom varnished teak interior and is very well equipped for extended shorthanded offshore cruising. Her shoal draft keel with centerboard allows access to many more sailing areas and harbors.</p> <p>Accommodations include a very comfortable main salon, spacious galley, wide navigation center, large master suite forward with double V berth with ensuite head with separate stall shower, aft guest cabin with a convertible queen, and guest/day head is conveniently located adjacent to the companionway.&nbsp;</p> <p>Recent upgrades in 2014/2015 include the addition of a bow thruster, 2 new heads (one electric), new holding tank, bottom and keel refinished and painted and unstepping, disassembling, and inspecting rigging and repainting mast.&nbsp;Also, the hull was Awl Gripped&nbsp;and the hydraulic system&nbsp;upgraded. The&nbsp;approximate cost of the 2014/15 upgrades was $60,000.&nbsp;&nbsp;Former upgrades include Seafrost holding plate refrigeration, full rudder bearing service in 2008, North MPS with sock (2006), Northstar 952 GPS plotter with cockpit repeater, new headliners throughout, and rebedded deck hatches, genoa tracks, and opening ports.</p> <p>For sailors looking for a beautiful, proven, high quality, semi-custom, handcrafted, performance cruising design, that is fast and sea-kindly, the Alden 46 Cara Lynn is worthy of a serious look. She is one of the finest 40'-50' semi-custom production yachts ever built and is one of Alden's most popular designs. The cost to replace her today would be approximately $1.2 million if built by an established New England yard. Her large aft cockpit, wide side decks, and foredeck make her a pleasure to sail.&nbsp;The sea-kindly hull and shoal draft keel design and spacious interior arrangement offer superior safety and comfort for offshore passage making or coastal cruising. Cara Lynn has a great equipment inventory, many upgrades and is in excellent condition ready to cruise.</p> <div>&nbsp;</div> <div>&nbsp;</div> [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] 23233250-C7AC-9210-A16916C5BF3C4F9D [empty string] [empty string] [empty string] 419 9999
