Scott knows boats and is very familiar with Hylas as well. Scott was helpful in getting the boat ready for sale. Pointing out the areas that needed attention and prepared a professional listing. I am happy to say that in two short weeks after the boat first listed we had 3 serious contacts and an offer. Sale completed in record time!" Bill and Gail  SV Another Road To... Hylas 46

"Scott Duncombe was extremely helpful during my search and purchase of a Hylas 46. Scott's knowledge of sailboats and particularly the Hylas was indispensable in helping me find the right boat. Shortly after I bought my boat I became seriously ill and Scott was there to help with various arrangements that were required. I have continued to rely on Scott's knowledge for various aspects of the Hylas. Scott has gone above and beyond from what you would expect."  Terry...Hylas 46

"In 2010 I was looking to replace my 35 foot Beneteau with a larger, center-cockpit sailboat. One of the models I was interested in was the Hylas 49. Scott Duncombe had the listing on several Hylas 49s. Out of all the phone calls and Internet contacts I made, Scott was the only broker who immediately went to work to help me find my new boat. He showed me several Hylas 49s as well as other Hylas models. I fell in love with “Call Me Ishmael” a 2007 Hylas 49.Scott had his work cut out for him to get a deal done; but get it done he did. Without Scott’s knowledge, honesty and fair-dealing I wouldn’t be the proud owner of that 2007 Hylas 49 today. I just cannot recommend Scott Duncombe highly enough". Paula Spina, Owner Call Me Ishmael 49 Hylas #56

“Scott Duncombe knows the Hylas designs very well, he’s energetic and enthusiastic, shows attention to detail and was always prompt to follow-up on anything in his court After we listed in December, he took a trip to Deale to inspect our Hylas 49 again. Scott had me review the listings and equipment list, etc. He flew up to Annapolis several times to show the boat and flew up again after the sales contract to be there for the survey and sea trials. He served a vital role then as a surrogate for the owner since we were unavailable. I give him top marks on all the qualities I would be looking for in a Broker.” Jerry and Nancy 

"Honest & integrity combined with excellent work ethics are Scott's best attributes. He has exemplified true professionalism during both the purchase and sales of yachts for my wife & I. I recommend him without hesitation."Jim

"I just wanted to tell Scott Duncombe that you did an excellent job, very professional and extremely cooperative. My experience with you was wonderful." Steve​​

"Thank you so much for all of our help navigating everyone through this transaction.  You did a superb job! We appreciate all the advise you gave us, from afar, and no matter the time of day. We could not have done it without you! Back in February, when we first met, would any of us have guessed that we would have completed a purchase of such a perfect sailboat within the next 3 months???" Cindy & Steve
