Brokers in the Houston area?

I was wondering if anyone could recommend a good broker in the Seabrook/Kemah/Clear Lake area?

I would rather get first on-hand recommendations over 'a friend of a friend of a friend' type.

Thanks in Advance!

Talk to Ed Snyder at Higgins, Smythe and Hood. He did well by me.

The folks at Sea Lake Yacht Sales are good. Many of them are very accomplished sailors. It is still a brokerage (er, hmm, if you know what I mean), but at least many of them have done offshore work and know their sailboats. They sell low end to high end. Brad is knowledgeable. There is another guy that I really liked but I cannot remember his name. He and his son have done a lot of offshore work and a lot of long gulf hauls (Yucatan, etc). He is in his 60's and I think just does the brokerage bit for fun. Those are the best brokers. I will see if I can get his name for you.

Here it is. Pat O'Neal. Very nice guy and knowledgeable. Seems to know his stuff.

PS I am not in any way affiliated with them. Just have spoken with them over the years on various issues and have been impressed. I have never purchased a boat from them, but have heard good things. Still, always remember, they are brokers.

I agree with Cruisingdad. Pat O'Neal is helpful and honest. I talked with him at the Houston Boat Show and we agreed on the drawbacks on the Beneteau interiors. Give him a call.

I never actually bought, but I was impressed with the effort of Dave Jackson at Higgins, Smythe and Hood.

We used Houston Yachts in Kemah. Roger Schumaker was a great help in finding the boat we were looking for and working with us from out of town.
