David Walters Yachts is pleased to announce the opening of their Newport, RI, office with John Osetek at the helm. John's on the water experience is a varied as his marine business experience, from racing Thisles 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 day sailers 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 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.

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.

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.

"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!"
