Jason, thank you so much for you great work in selling Voodoo, your experience and professionalism were second to none. I believe that only someone with an intimate knowledge of race yachts can sell them and you surpassed all expectations. I would have no hesitation in recommending you to anyone wanting to sell a race yacht. Hugh Ellis - Voodoo
Ocean Ranger Ker 33
Raceyachts was breath of fresh air. I appointed a yacht broker in Perth and one in Sydney to sell our Ker33. I did not get one lead from these 2 brokers in 1 year. I appointed Jason and he sold our Ker33 within  weeks of listing. Professional, no nonsense, sensible, results driven outfit. When I sell my next boat, I will call him first.
