    We recently purchased a Jeanneau 695 from Northside Marine and couldn't be happier with the service and communication we received during the process.
    David Choveaux was professional and thorough during the sales and fit out process as well as keeping us informed of any changes or covid delays that were taking place along the way.
    Northside took care of all our after market options and their workmanship is excellent.
    I highly recommend using Northside Marine and talking to David Choveaux next time you want to buy a boat.

    Sam Lewis made the overall process of purchasing a new boat very positive. Everything was explained clearly and any questions i had were always answered promptly (even on his days off). Not your typical pushy salesman, which i liked. Great asset to the Northside Marine team.
