Why Select JMYS?
One of the most important decisions you can make to improve your trawler boating experience is to find a yacht broker whom you are comfortable with and engage that broker to be your primary resource. It is very easy to fall into a trap and make a commitment too early with a broker. Take a little time upfront and do some research about reputations and work ethic, negotiation skills and post purchase follow up, you will quickly learn that your fellow boaters have very strong opinions about yacht brokers.
Bering Yachts builds the finest recreational steel adventure yachts in the world. Efficient designs, expert installations and quality craftsmanship combine to offer a complete cruising package that is unmatched in value. The underway performance is second to none; whisper quiet, vibration free and a rock solid ride even in the most daunting seas. Jeff Merrill has been directly collaborating with the build team at Bering Yachts and as a sales and marketing advisor since the 2014 Fort Lauderdale Boat Show. Jeff and his wife Pam flew to the Bering ship yard in Zhanjiang, China in December of 2014 and since then Jeff has made repeated trips to China and to the Bering yard in Antalya, Turkey. With Jeff’s 20+ year boat building background he is thrilled to be involved in the world class construction techniques Bering administers. Having spent time at sea living aboard, Jeff is a true believer in the capability and comfort of what Bering Yachts offers. Bering’s attention to proper welding, thorough coatings and yacht level finishing inside and outside can really be best appreciated with a firsthand inspection. Contact Jeff directly to learn more and he will be happy to explain the company attitude, build features and design elements that differentiate Bering and allow them to stand behind their motto, “Steel The Best”!
