My career as a Brewer yacht broker began in 2004 when I became a part of the Portsmouth, Rhode Island office. However, this is far from my first experience with boats; they have been an integral part of my life since I learned to sail on Barnegat Bay, New Jersey as a kid. Though I spent the early part of my working career in the scientific instrument business, I took an early retirement to extend my time sailing and being involved in building or restoring boats. As a Brewer yacht broker I continue to win numerous awards, including “Largest Commission”. I am a proud member of the Yacht Brokers Association of America and a Certified Professional Yacht Broker; I truly enjoy helping clients find the perfect power or sailboat to fit their needs.
When not at work, I can be found cruising on the water out of Jamestown, Rhode Island on the Narragansett Bay on my Freedom cat-ketch or restored Eastern motor launch. I hold a USCG 50-Ton Masters Captain’s License. I have a client-friendly focus and would be delighted to help you sell your present boat or help you find your next one, even if it's your first.
I had an excellent experience in selling my Jeanneau 45.2 with Andy Kovacs. He was very accommodating and accessible every time I called with a question. He always gave me a very honest opinion and very good advice. Once the offer was accepted, he made the process very easy. He completed all the paperwork and even managed our way through the survey. I would highly recommend his services. Beyond that, he is a very nice guy!
During the past three years I have sold two boats; one a Tiara 33 power boat and the other a Marshall 18 catboat, both times I used Andy Kovacs from Brewer Yacht Sales. Selling a boat can sometimes be a very stressful process because at times both the seller and the buyer can be very demanding. It takes a very special type of person to bring these two people together to the point that both feel good about the transaction. Andy is that type of person. He is knowledgeable, sincere and most importantly honest. I enjoyed my dealings with Andy and would highly recommend him to anyone trying to buy or sell a boat.
