"Working with Kirchner & Mares has been a pleasure from the beginning to the end.
Buying a yacht internationally can be challenging and complicated,
Kirchner & Mares made the entire process seamless and straightforward,
incl. transport organisation from Kiel to Los Angeles, a great overall experience."
Ivan Batanov, Los Angeles USA
"I recently purchased a boat through Kirchner-Mares Yacht Brokerage.
From the first enquiry through to the final sale agreement I found Florian Kirchner
who we dealt with to be totally professional and further that he worked very
hard to bring about a sale agreement. During the whole negotiation process I
found Florian acted with total integrity. In particular the description/ photos of the
motor yacht were accurate and honest. The boat a Southstar 37 only landed in
New Zealand this week and we are absolutely delighted with the condition that
she arrived in. Kirchner-Mares through the vendor ensured that even after we had
paid for the boat that our interests were well looked after. I do not speak or
understand German but that has made no difference at all. We purchased this boat
from the other end of the world totally relying on the honesty and integrity of Kirchner-Mares.
We were not disappointed in fact it is fair to say that our expectations were exceeded.
To anybody considering purchasing a boat in Europe and whether ot not you are
able to inspect in person I have no hesitation in recommending Kirchner-Mares
as brokers you can rely on."
Rod Slater, Auckland NZL
"When acquiring our boat through Kirchner and Mares, we felt in very good hands.
The entire sales process worked really good and there was a good interaction
and responsiveness to inquiries. The handover of the yacht was done with great
detail and honesty and we can only recommend to use Kirchner and Mares as yacht broker. "

"I am very pleased to say that when buying "FOFTEIN" in LÜBECK,
I was very satisfied with your service (efficiency, availability and kindness).
I can recommend your office to other people. “
Yvon Guegan, France
""I live in Ireland and do not speak German. On the internet I found
that Kirchner & Mares had a sailing yacht for sail in
North Germany that was perfect for me,
which was in very good condition and competitively priced.
At every step of the way Florian gave first-rate support
and service. His English and professionalism are excellent
and I genuinely felt that Florian acted as much as my partner
in buying a vessel as he did as agent for the vendor.
After I purchased the yacht I got a significant amount of work
done by a German boat-yard before I brought my boat home
and Florian excellently project-managed every step of that work.
He helped make buying a boat in a foreign country stress-free
and enjoyable. I unreservedly recommend Kirchner & Mares.
Thank you Florian."
Mark S., Ireland
"We purchased our Linssen 470 through the Brokers Kirchner Mares
in Hamburg. We made initial contact by telephone and
were impressed with the fast and open responses we received.
Florian Kirchner was very helpful and explained in detail the
process for buying a yacht in Germany. Florian guided us through
each stage of the purchase process and also provided help and
advice after the purchase. Our experience was good and we feel
that the German yacht purchase process is fair to both vendor and buyer. We are
very happy with our Linssen Motor Yacht
and have no hesitation in recommending Kirchner Mares to
other purchasers. “
Garry and Hazel Nestor, UK
"In March 2016 I purchased a boat through Florian - during the entire
process I was highly impressed with his reliability, service, and honesty.
I am living in Gibraltar, the boat was in Croatia, and both Florian and
the owner were in Germany - a situation which made me uncomfortable
due to the distances and uncertainties. Florian made this process as
smooth as possible and provided a high level of service and
professionalism. If you are considering using their services, I can
highly recommend Kirchner & Mares"
