We have an extensive marketing strategy to bring qualified buyers to our boat listings, utilizing both inbound and outbound efforts. All of our Atomic Tuna listings are enhanced by our professional photography, 3D modeling, virtual reality, and glossy brochures.
Buying a boat during a pandemic from two states away isn't easy. It takes a team of people to pull it off. We had a great team partner in Atomic Tuna. Geli at Atomic Tuna was awesome to work with. She was great at communicating with us a helping to navigate the inevitable hurdles that come with boat buying. They certainly went the extra mile for us and we would recommend them 100%.
We worked with Geli at Atomic Tuna to buy a 1988 Catalina 34 and she was amazing! She helped find a deal that would work for both the seller and ourselves, provided references to resources and made super-flexible arrangements for access to the boat both before and after escrow closed. During escrow, it was obvious that our calls were important, even when she had other work in progress. Everything was transparent and friendly. We later learned that the sale presented unusual challenges for Geli, but she never blinked. She just made it happen smoothly and painlessly. Best-ever experience on a big purchase!
I’ve dealt with several yacht brokers from having purchased and sold other boats. I met Wayne Goldman at Atomic Tuna Yachts by sheer luck through a friend of a friend that said he represented a boat I may be interested in viewing. Wayne astutely knew that it was not the boat we should have. He fit the boat to the people...in our case, a cruising couple. When we spoke, he listened. He had an understanding of what our cruising mission was going to be and he knew the types of boats we should be looking at. He saved us months of looking. His experience in negotiating the purchase saved us from paying for mistakes we would have made. Wayne’s knowledge of the industry, boats, and his contacts were invaluable. He knows when value is present and he can tell you when to walk away from a troubled boat. That is extremely important when dealing with the emotional side of boat buying. I cannot recommend him highly enough for his ethics and his knowledge and his professionalism. I am sure that he instills the same in any broker that works for Atomic Tuna.
I recently purchased a Tayana 47 from Atomic Tuna. I worked with Peter Benziger, who was amazing to work with. As we were buying the boat from Seattle, Peter was very accommodating. He took pictures of the things we asked for, and even met us over labor day weekend as we decided to drive down to see the boat and take her on a sea trial. This was my first boat purchase, and working with Peter was great, he was incredibly responsive, and took the time to answer the dozens of questions I had. I would recommend Peter to anyone looking to buy or sell a boat!
As a bareboat sailor, I was shopping for my first liveaboard sailboat that could reliably coastal cruise. After meeting literally dozens of salesman at various brokers, I met Wayne. He was the only broker who took a personal interest and sought to truly understand my personal goal and vision. After a few showings, i bought my boat through Wayne, but what i got was much more than a boat...I got a dedicated, capable and personable professional that has continued to support/advised me in every situation I have encountered over my four years of ownership. I actually got a trusted, knowledgeable, valued relationship. If you are in the market to buy, sell or simply to learn about your boating options, i highly recommend Wayne.
Thank you, Atomic Tuna and Farallone Yachts for hosting the virtual boat show. We would rather be out there in San Francisco in person, but this event really helped us get our cruising fix, and learn a tremendous amount in the process. Now if we could just work on adding some virtual reality sailing next time it would be perfect!
Working with Wayne has been an excellent experience. I purchased my boat through him. We discussed at length what I wanted to accomplish. He directed me to some quality blue water cruisers, managed the purchase, and continued to support me until I got underway. That was two years ago. He cares about his clients. I cannot recommend Atomic Tuna enough.
After looking for over ten years, I purchased my first and probably only boat through Atomic Tuna. I had the opportunity to work with Wayne from start to finish. He exemplifies the cliché of “going above and beyond.” I continually put the cart before the horse throughout the process, but Wayne was always there to keep the process on track. Atomic Tuna and Wayne significantly raise the bar for all yacht brokerages/brokers.
My husband and I had the great pleasure of purchasing a sailboat from Atomic Tuna with Geli helping us every step of the way. She is a professional and is very knowledgable in every aspect of the buying process. She was there for us every time we had a question and was patient with our obvious inexperience. Her kindness, experience and overall knowledge made our experience very pleasurable. We would highly recommend her to anyone thinking of purchasing a boat!
This was an amazing tour! You definitely sold me, one of the best walk-through videos I've seen. You really know your product. Love the way you did some of the walk through under way. This was Toby Hodges level.
My wife and I purchased our forest boat through Atomic Tuna Yacht Sales. Michele was very helpful in guiding us through the process, answering questions, and in making certain our needs were addressed every step of the way. Even after the transaction was completed, she strives to help ensure our boat ownership experience is extremely positive, Wayne ensured the transaction was efficient, and that we had all the information we needed on a very timely manner. I would highly recommend Atomic Tuna Yachts!
I've been a blue water sailor and 9 boat owner over the past 40 years. So I would say that i'm reasonably experienced in the process of evaluating a yacht broker. Mr. Wayne Goldman is a signature level professional with years of clearly evident experience. His commitment to detail and personal integrity has been our most appreciated pleasure in working with him and the team at Atomic Tuna. Our 70 foot motor yacht was cleaned, staged, video, photo and 3D scanned to provide the most accurate presentation of it's market offering. The Atomic Tuna team have been responsive to buyers agents 24/7 by phone and in person...
We just closed our purchase of a sailboat through Michelle Leonard of Atomic Tuna Yachts. Michelle was personable, knowledgeable, thorough, PATIENT, fair and had great resources and recommendations. Her guidance made the process seamless. We highly recommend Michelle. Thanks, Michelle!
