Ricardo Buenahora, a broker from Murray Yacht Sales in Dallas and Fort Worth, Texas, helped me purchase a modest Catalina 250 from Rush Creek Yacht Club on Ray Hubbard Lake. Despite it being a small boat, Ricardo treated me as if I was buying a brand new big yacht. He went above and beyond to meet my written wishes in the contract, and he honored his agreements, both written and verbal. Ricardo also helped me arrange transportation to the boat’s new home port on Lewisville Lake. The paperwork and process were very professional and went smoothly. Even Stanton Murray himself called me directly with his team in Kemah, Texas, to ensure I was comfortable with the process. I cannot praise them enough for their exceptional service. I am confident that anyone who has purchased or sold with Murray would say the same. My family and I love our boat, and I am so happy that Murray helped us realize our dream. I’d give them more than five stars if I could!

Ricardo at Murray Yacht Sales worked his tail off to get my Beneteau sold to a great buyer. I’ll be looking to buy and sell through him and the team at Murray in the future!!!

I’ve never had the pleasure of working with a better broker than Ricardo. This young man worked harder to sell our Beneteau 281 than you can imagine. He had a buyer before we could believe it. For us he couldn’t have made it any quicker or easier. If you are looking to sell or buy a boat, Ricardo is your man!

1. We had been looking for a sailboat for months and finally found one through Murray Yacht Sales. We are based in Maryland and the boat was in Oklahoma.
2. The broker (Ricardo Buenahora) was amazing! He provided video/pictures to us and was in constant contact in regard to questions that came up through the videos/pics. He addressed all concerns and potential problem areas with the boat.
3. During the survey Ricardo provided pictures to us all while staying out of the way of the surveyor. Once we received the survey, he assisted in resolving all issues with the seller.
4. Once in contract, Ricardo continued to stay in contact and took care of having the boat prepared to be shipped, and then he coordinated the shipping of the boat from Oklahoma to Maryland.
5. We cannot say enough good things about Ricardo to include going above and beyond every step of the way and the exceptional customer service he provided even after the sale was complete to ensure we received the boat.
6. If you are in the market for a boat we HIGHLY recommend contacting Ricardo!!!
