Just Faith – 103ft Broward
Mass email sent out to all family members and friends by Mr. Kevin Faith
November 28th 2011

I would like all to know about Marlon and his company CYM.

We always had captains which managed our boat , in the past.

But now we have Management.

You have proven to know exactly what our boat needs, wants, and the solid changes it may need. A big difference, where we may even have had big losses and lost the boat.

Marlon has been very technical and educative to us for the changes he has made and is still making….amending literally everything. His scrutiny is impeccable. His love of his work is unquestionable, but most importantly, he would go out of his way in buying, fixing, and/or replacing things with the least cost. His emails bombard us with every step that he takes, so much so that we feel very secure under his management umbrella.

I will be sending two more enclosures of his reports to us, which will give you a further insight to his deligent mannerism of being in control of our boat. Whenever I visit the boat, I feel that it is new and it made Jenny
and I buy three more small Britto’s to beautify the internal decor.

Credit goes to Captain Doug Wernick who introduced him to us…..I wished he had done that earlier.

“Amphitrite”- 68ft Viking

May 16, 2012

To Whom It May Concern:

For my husband, Bill, and I the decision to buy our Viking 68, Amphitrite, was easy. She seemed to be the perfect boat for us. The difficult part of the equation was the decision to leave her in Ft Lauderdale while we resided full time in Houston. We wanted to enjoy the ability to hop to the Bahamas for a long weekends and leaving Amphitrite in Ft. Lauderdale would give us that option. Our next big challenge was to find someone to trust to take care of her while we were hundreds of miles away?

I am sure many of you reading this testimonial will think I am going to jump right to Contemporary Yacht Management and begin singing their praises. I can’t. I can’t because we entrusted our yacht to someone else for eight months and were at the point of considering either selling her or bringing her back to Houston because it was becoming a nightmare. That is when I went on the search for someone else to manage our boat. Understanding what can go wrong now, we were very apprehensive about being able to find someone we could trust. We interviewed 3 companies and decided upon Marlon Knox. He “IS” Contemporary Yacht Management.

Marlon’s attention to detail and transparency about everything that happens to Amphitrite not only put our minds at ease about leaving her in Ft. Lauderdale, but brought back our ability to enjoy our boat. He is extremely knowledgeable about not only boats, but the marine industry in general. He is efficient, effective and cost-conscience. He is well connected with every resource possible.

I can’t say enough good things about Marlon and my husband and I would welcome a personal conversation about our experience to anyone considering his services.
