Having worked with Cpt. Manny for over 10 years now, I can truly say that he is one of the most trustworthy and conservation minded individuals I have had the good fortune to meet in this industry. At URS, I was an environmental scientist working to quantify the impacts of man made development on ecological systems in Biscayne Bay and Florida Bay. Manny was our charter captain, who assisted myself and other scientists to navigate the waters of South Florida for our assessments and mitigation work. Aside from his professionalism, even in the worst of weather situations, what astonishes me the most about Manny is his love and respect for the ocean and its creatures. Although he was not trained in marine biology as I was, his vast wealth of practical and scientific knowledge was incredibly helpful to our teams over the years. I would recommend Manny any time for solid advice on boats and boating.
My Great Experience with Manny Diaz from Hooker Yachts. After using another broker two years ago to sell my vessel, I didn’t really get the feeling that they appreciated my business, it was like I was just another customer, so when I decided to take the plunge and purchase another larger vessel, I searched for a broker that actually took the time to sit down with me, find out what boat was really going to make me happy, all within my personal budget. I never felt pressured and after Manny personally supervised the marine survey, I knew he’d found the right boat for me. He even helped negotiate the price down quite a bit from the buyers asking price. We’ve since enjoyed a few trips to the sand bar and even a trip to Bimini together. Never again will I use a large brokerage house.
Everybody has access to the same real time information online and the marine industry has a lot of people who don’t really have your back. So I believe that when buying or selling a boat you have to ask yourself what sets brokers apart. The ability to effectively navigate through difficult negotiations with parties who may not share the same values or ways of doing business. This is something that is most crucial, yet so rare. Efficiency and market knowledge are also important, but above all honesty. You will find all of these qualities with Manny Diaz. Manny represented the sale of my vessel last year and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy a vessel.
I used Manny Diaz to sell my 39 SeaVee. He brought a deal to the table and was able to get the buyer up to full asking price all in under 10 days. Even though the counter broker was a most unprofessional individual, Manny maintained a very professional demeanor throughout the process. He made sure the survey and closing went through as scheduled and without any issues. I would recommend Manny Diaz without hesitation; he runs an extremely professional shop that offers a personal touch that is typically absent in this industry.
I’ve known Manny Diaz for over 20 years. I’ve had the privilege to work for him as the dockmaster of the Cocoplum Yacht Club while he was the Commodore and served on the board of directors for 12 years. Additionally, I enjoyed our friendship as well as fishing and diving with him throughout all of south Florida and the Bahamas. Throughout these frequent trips I observed his extraordinary knowledge of boats and sincere love of responsible yachting and our marine environment. Our close relationship and his desire to expand his knowledge enabled me to share my extensive experience and mentor him in all aspects of our passion and the boating trade. I highly recommend his integrity, character, honesty and abilities as a “top notch” boat broker.
Manny is an extremely professional, knowledgeable and experienced broker. He knows the market, the product and always looks out for his clients. He’s works hard to get you exactly what you want and won’t stop until he finds it and you’re fully satisfied...not your typical broker just looking to make a quick sale. We’ve used him both to purchase and to sell our boats, more than once. And will highly recommend him to anyone.
Manny took care of every detail of the sale of my boat and treated it as if it was his own. I was a bit skeptical at first if a broker was necessary but it was evident after the first few steps that it was 100% worth it. I have recommended him to many friends and family members who all have similar reports. A+ service!
