Boat Buyers Consultancy Service

Captain Gilmore is available as a buyer’s consultant to help you check all of the angles when purchasing a new or used boat. Captain Gilmore is not affiliated with any yacht seller, so she will give you an unbiased opinion of the boat you are considering, along with a questionnaire designed to pinpoint the features you need in a boat. Buy your boat confidently with the experience of a certified USCG Captain. Buyer’s consultant references available upon request.


Private Training and Coaching on your Boat

Captain Joan Gilmore will help you get the most out of your boat by providing dedicated and personalized on-board training. Special docking techniques, recommendations for rigging, and tips for the best safety and performance are all part of these private coaching sessions.

The week before Key West Race Week, Joan coached the co-owner of a Swan 42’, which ultimately placed first in its class. She has coached for owners of yachts 22’-42’ on Lake Superior, Pepin and White Bear Lake who were looking for safer ways to dock their boats. Private coaching references available upon request.
