Working with Walt was a great experience. I have not bought a boat in over 15 years so I was pretty new to the experience. Working with Walt allowed me to zero in on the type of boat I needed quickly. He listened to what I wanted and and suggested boats that would meet my needs. He is very knowledgeable and easy going. I never felt like I was being talked to by a salesman. It felt more like a good friend who knew everything about boats was helping me while I bought one. I would recommend him to anyone buying or selling.

I worked with Peter Seckinger and he made my experience tolerable. The boat needed some TLC from lack of use and he walked me thru what was important for a presentation he also made a fantastic video that was put on line. I almost bought my own boat! Great Brokerage, the sale and the closing was flawless.

Walt was referred to me by a best friend. On his advice I listed with Walt. Based on the exceptional experience I have had in my personal dealing with him and his company I would advise everyone I cherish most to use Walt and only Walt. His communication and professionalism is beyond exceptional. Walt went beyond the boundaries of a broker or listing agent. His level of service was more like a friend. On many occasions he went above and beyond like only a friend would. You can’t buy the level of service he offers for free. His commitment and passion shows in knowledge of the industry. Whether you are buying or selling, you need to speak with Walt for an honest intelligent opinion based on experience.
I thank you Walt, an amazing job, no one could do it like you do!
Sincerely,
Jon

Wow, what an experience! I had been secretly researching boats on my own for a few months before I met Walt from Carpe Diem Yacht Sales. Researched online, went out on my friends' boats and attended both local boat shows in Annapolis with my wife. We thought we knew what we wanted and heard about Walt from reading great reviews online. I reached out via e-mail and he followed up with a phone call and we started the journey. From the start, this was a no-pressure scenario. He was truly vested in our experience and knew that we were first time boat buyers and did a great job holding our hands throughout the entire process. He was always a quick text or phone call away and spent hours answering questions and being very patient with us. He showed us a used Sea Ray express cruiser that we fell in love with. He was there and on board during the entire survey and sea trial. He was there with us through closing. And, here is the most important part of this experience, he was with us for 6 hours on our first cruise to teach us how to operate the boat and all of its systems. He didn't throw us the keys and move on to the next sale. It's not a sale for him, it's a life changing event for all involved. And he is still with us to answer questions and point us to other vendors in the area for our boat repair and maintenance needs. He knows that this won't be the last boat we buy from him. That is the true difference in a broker. If you are looking to seize the day, turn to Walt.

We are the Capozzis and we live in Florida.  You would think that living in Florida we would be able to find our perfect boat.  But, after several months of searching and several trips though out the state, we came up empty.  We expanded our search area and found our perfect boat in Annapolis, Maryland.  This boat was listed by broker, Walt Frick, Carpe Diem Yacht Sales, Edgewater, Maryland.

We called Walt and he was more than informative regarding the condition and quality of the boat.  We negotiated a purchase price, flew to Maryland two days later, did a sea trial, survey, and signed the preliminary contract.  Being a boat, there were a few minor issues that needed to be taken care of before closing and the 6 day trip back to Florida with our new boat.  Throughout this entire process, Walt was more than accommodating in assuring that all details were taken care of.  He stored and delivered boxes of boat supplies that I had sent from Florida. He smiled when I got impatient and was beyond helpful prepping us and the boat for our return to Florida.

We did a final sea trial with Walt, and enjoyed a great Maryland crab dinner with him before our departure. 

If we ever sell this boat which I cannot imagine, we will definitely be calling Walt Frick.  If you ever need a yacht broker with a vast knowledge of boating, a friendly and yet professional demeanor, Walt is your go to yacht broker.

Walt,
Just a note to say Thanks!  Working with Tony was an absolute pleasure.  He is one of the most responsive and proactive person I have come across, which made the experience of selling our boat a very positive one.  He was very professional and worked tirelessly to find a buyer.  Going above and beyond, he actually did a showing on a federal holiday - WOW!  Carpe Diem Yacht Sales certainly lived up their reputation of being "the best on the bay".  I will happily recommend any and all who are looking to buy or sell to Carpe Diem Yacht Sales.  Thanks for making this experience an awesome one!

Walt,

A quick note to thank you for the extensive services you provided to Janet and me. Excellent advice throughout the process. Excellent lessons in boat usage. Had my first chance today to practice launching and docking using the lessons you gave me. Your guidance kicked right in as if I have been doing this for years. Additionally, after purchasing the boat you may recall my 92 year old mother was injured in an accident and I had to leave the area. this put us in a position where we could not move the boat to its new home. You stepped right up and moved her for us. Forever grateful.

Thanks, Walt,

Carpe Diem's owner, Walt Frick, is the consummate yacht broker: knowledgeable, honest, market-savvy, and most importantly, hard working. His marketing reflects his insight to the local market, as well as his national contacts and awareness, and his closing results speak for themselves. I would recommend Carpe Diem Yacht Sales for anyone who is looking to realize their expectations, for buying or selling. Michael McLean Tarpon Springs, FL
