The florida yacht brokers association is there to protect the public from fraudulant yacht broker practices and in this case not only did they not protect they still have ignored . Below is a part of their bylaws


ARTICLE XV
CODE OF ETHICS

Section 1. It is the duty of the member to protect the public against fraud, misrepresentation, or unethical practices in the yacht brokerage profession. Member should endeavor to eliminate any practices which could be damaging to the public or to the dignity and integrity of the yacht brokerage profession.




United Yacht Sales of Stuart florida run by Peter Schmidt not only commited fraud but also falsified statements online where he went as far as to quote something from the other victims attorney that was never said. Peter Schmidt is a liar and fraud and the F.Y.B.A has went out of its way not to return my phone calls and even ignored e mails the president promised he would immediately get back to me after his return from his vacation. Many members of the F.Y.B.A were e mailed the situation including how the brokerage had a current listing with my family to sell our yacht then after we told them it was stolen went behind our backs and took part in the illegal sale knowing by the paperwork we sent them we owned the yacht fully. Then after lawrence pirritino took part in the illegal sale he put the commision money in his private bank account and spent the money knowing it was a stolen yacht. Several weeks later after the auction the buyer got a refund from the sellers because the coast guard documentation center clearly said it was illegal to sell the yacht without a court order in which they didnt have. Then after getting his money the buyer went to lawrence pirritino the broker from united yacht sales who represented him and was told by lawrence pirritino he spent the money. That is totally illegal on a yacht 45 feet long. Its also illegal for a broker to tell his sales broker its ok to do side deals on your own. The corrupt attorney who was involved in the illegal sale put in his contract to the buyer several times lawrence pirritino was the broker representing the buyer. During my calls to the broker several days before the illegal auction i asked him if he heard anything about the auction he kept saying no. Oh yes and three days before the auction the buyer went to the brokers office after seeing his listing of my yacht for sale to see it. the broker showed him the yacht three days before the sale as my broker even giving the potential buyer a sales purchase agreement to take with him to fill out and get back to him so he could get the offer to me the owner. Now three days later he claims someone told him they owned the yacht and he took their word for it with no paperwork or court orders just their word. When i listed the yacht with him i had to send proof of everything now he takes someones word? Does the s**t smell here? To read more about this fraud broker and brokerage go to

The f.y.b.a. obviously doesnt give a damn for their bylays nor the public being protected from fraud. I would bet they care about getting peter schmidts and his brokers money for dues....

WHERES THE F.Y.B.A ?

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

PETER SCHMIDT HAS TRIED (WITH FRIENDS AND CO WORKERS) TO DISCREDIT MY FAMILY WHO IS NOT ONLY A VICTIM OF A CROOKED ATTORNEY (WWW.ALANECKSTEIN.COM) BUT A VICTIM OF A YACHT BROKER WHOM WE TRUSTED (WWW.UNITEDYACHTSALES.NET). PETER SCHMIDT HAS LIED,SLANDERED,MY FAMILY TRYING TO GET EVERYONE AWAY FROM THE CLEAR FACTS THEY NOT ONLY BROKE THE LAW, THERE ARE OTHER VICTIMS OF THIS COMPANY THEY ALSO DONT GIVE A DAMN ABOUT.


BUT HERES THE BIG PROBLEM..

THE F.Y.B.A WHOM HAS IGNORED THIS FROM THE BEGINNING HAS "NOT" COME FORWARD TO SAY " PETER SCHMIDT NOR UNITED YACHT SALES HAS NOT BROKE ANY LAWS NOR MISREPRESENTED ANYONE" THE REASON THEY HAVENT IS BECAUSE THE BOARD ITSELF ARE YACHT BROKERAGE OWNERS OR MANAGEMENT AND CANNOT PUT THEIR NECK ON THE LINE FOR SCHMIDT AND UNITED YACHT SALES. WHY? BECAUSE THEY KNOW HIS COMPANY BROKE THE LAW, SO WHY DONT THEY PROTECT THE PUBLIC FROM THIS?

ALSO IF YOU LOOK AT THE FLORIDAYACHTBROKERASSOCIATIONDOTCOM WEB SITE I PUT UP SOME OF THE HEAD BOARD MEMBERS COMPANY REPRESENTATIVES WHO HAVE CONFIRMED UNDER THE SAME SCENARIO, UNITED YACHTS NOT ONLY BROKE THE LAW, ONE EVEN SAYS "ITS JAIL TIME". SO HOW CAN THEY NOW CHANGE THEIR MINDS WHEN THE LAWS STILL THE SAME. NOW THE D.B.P.R WHO DID THE INVESTIGATION INTO UNITED YACHTS, CLEARLY BEING FRIENDS OF PETER SCHMIDTS,DID A VERY ONE SIDED INVESTIGATION FOR THEIR FRIEND. KEVIN MC CARTHY WHOM THEY REPRESENTED IN THE SALE OF THE STOLEN YACHT WAS ON THE PHONE (3RD PARTY LISTENING TO THE INTERVIEWS BETWEEN ME AND THE D.B.P.R AND HE CAN CLEARLY SAY THEY WERE NOT INTERESTED IN LISTENING TO THE EVIDENCE I HAD) IN SEVERAL CASES WHEN I OFFERED TO SEND THEM MORE EVIDENCE I WAS TOLD " WEVE GOT ENOUGH FROM YOU WE DONT NEED ANYMORE" NOW THESE ARE STATE EMPLOYEES SUPPOSED TO BE IMPARTIAL AND DO A FULL INVESTIGATION. AFTER THE CALL MC CARTHY SAID " THEY DEFINATELY DID NOT WANT TO HEAR YOUR SIDE NOR DID THEY WANT TO HEAR YOUR EVIDENCE" NOW IVE NEVER AS OF TODAY EVEN MET MC CARTHY JUST TALKED TO HIM BY PHONE. THIS IS FRIENDS COVERING FOR SCHMIDT AND THE PUBLIC SHOULD NOT DO BUSINESS WITH UNITED YACHTS NOR ANY F.Y.B.A MEMBERS WHO SAY THEY ARE MEMBERS OF THE F.Y.B.A MAKING THE PUBLIC FEEL AS IF THIS PROTECTS THEM BECAUSE IT DOESNT.


OH YES AND WHEN MC CARTHY WAS ON THE LINE DURING MY QUESTIONING (THE D.B.P.R DIDNT KNOW HE WAS THERE) I ASKED HIM TO SIT IN ON THE CALL BECAUSE I SAW THE DAY BEFORE DURING OUR CALLS THEY WERE DOING THE SAME THING.


ONE MORE INTERESTING NOTE...


THE D.B.P.R IS ALSO OVER LICENSING OF AUCTIONEERS IN FLORIDA. I FILED A COMPLAINT ON ALAN ECKSTEIN KEY WEST ATTORNEY THAT WAS THE ATTORNEY THAT HELD THE ACTUAL ILLEGAL AUCTION. THE INVESTIGATOR CLEARLY DID A FULL INVESTIGATION AND WHEN IT WAS FINISHED SHE SAID" I AM SENDING THE CASE TO THE MONROE COUNTY STATE ATTORNEY THIS WEEK " I ASKED HER WHAT IT WAS GOING FOR? SHE SAID..


" UNDER THE LAW ALAN ECKSTEIN WAS NOT AUTHORISED TO HOLD THE AUCTION NOR WAS HE LICENSED, UNDER FLORIDA STATUTES THIS IS A FELONY.. IT WILL BE SENT TO THE STATE ATTORNEY FOR FELONY PROSECUTION.. THE FILE WAS SENT TO THE STATE ATTORNEY BUT A FEW DAYS LATER D.B.P.R. STATE ATTORNEY CHARLES TUNNICLIFF CALLED THE STATE ATTORNEYS OFFICE AND PULLED THE FILE SAYING THEY MADE A MISTAKE...


A DAMN MISTAKE WHEN HIS INVESTIGATOR CLEARLY SAW A FELONY UNDER STATE STATUTES. WHO GOT TO TUNNICLIFF? WHO WAS PAID OFF?


TUNNICLIFF STOPPED THE PRSECUTION MOVING FORWARD FOR WHAT REASON?

Mr. Waters (yeah I know) from the Palm Beach office of United Yachts sent me on a 1200 mile 2000 dollar trip to view a boat that was totally wrecked. He posted great pics and faxed me a survey that was not accurate at all. The survey listed the usual nickle and dime stuff. When my wife and I got to the boat, it was literally unrecognizable. There was widlife living in the boat. She was stripped of allgear and slated for demolision by the yard! The boat has been in that state for two years the yard said. The beauty of this whole thing, Is that this moron STILL uses the pic on his page. He is a true scumbag. I called the surveyer and he had no knowledge of the boat!

http://unitedyacht.com/mikewaters/

It's the sailboat on the left. Under intense pressure he settled and said he would reimburse us. We have yet to see one cent 3 years later.


*****BUT THEY BOUNCED THIS MANS CHECK AFTER SCAMMING HIM, THYPICAL UNITED YACHTS B.S

Google the following quote "the voice in my head are telling me that if i persue this everyone will give in and i'll get my boat back and i'll be rich and my ferret will come back to life" The first Topix site his his quote

Check it out, it's Robert. The only reason I have posted this is simple. Robert has accused United Yacht Sales and myself and number of other people of scamming him, unethical and illegal behavior, non of which is true. No local, state and federal authority agrees with Robert, as much as he misquotes people, we have never been accused or convicted of anyting except by Robert. I have posted his comment so you know what kind of person we are dealing with.

Darn right I'm mad, mad at being defamed and slandered by Robert.

AUTHOR: Peter - (U.S.A.)

Robert is at it again, defaming United Yacht and myself and committing libel. Can anyone blame me for being upset with what is going on. United Yacht Sales, its brokers, a marina, the marina's attorney

Robert recently quoted another FYBA broker after suckering him into his twisted storyline. Robert called Dave White, pretending to be a potential buyer for a boat going to auction. No details were given, just broad parameters. Dave has been made aware of the situation and now writes.

"Thank you for your call and the heads-up about this situation. Obviously, this person completely misrepresented himself and the context of the situation. He has twisted what I said below to his end. In a transaction such as you described to me where the boat was sold at auction to a buyer without brokerage involvment in handling the money, there would have been no requirement to run it through an escrow account.
I have copied this man with this e-mail and by this he is informed to cease and desist mis-quoting or misrepresenting my communication with him."
Regards,
Dave White
World Class Yacht Sales

This is just one more fabrication fo Robert's among many. There were no illegal activities conducted by United Yacht, myself, the brokers involved, the attorney involved ..... no one. We have all been totally cleared by a number of agencies. Robert simply contends that everyone is simply in the bag for United Yacht Sales. A vast conspiracy. Fact is Robert never paid a dockage bill and lost his boat to the marina he owed the money to and it was auctioned off. I suppose I would be upset also, but to blame everyone else for his problems is just wrong and to libel everyone involved all over the internet is even worse.

A law breaker is mad hes exposed...

AUTHOR: Robert - (U.S.A.)

Your already on ripoffreport lying saying mc carthy's attorney told you stuff that wasnt true and now you think the public is stupid enough to believe your story's again. All brokerages were given the scenario and all have 100% said your company broker several laws not including misrepresentation,commingling money and more. Your unethical pricatices show what a coward you are and a shotty operation you run. The public is being made aware of your tatics and business practices. To the many of you who have e mailed and called me with your support i thank you and when peter schmidt wants to put his money where his mouth is he forgets i recorded all my calls with brokers etc. The many people reading this there are several wittnesses to these facts and its clear when a coward like schmidt goes on the web and falsely quotes an attorney to try and make him look good says it all. Then he come back after i called him on his lies and said " I misunderstood" How does one misunderstand what was never even discussed? Anyone looking to do business with this company,the florida yacht broker association or anyone claiming to be members of the florida yacht broker association and saying what code of ethics they follow should be aware. The Florida yacht broker association nor united yacht sales peter schmidt have any ethics nor do they care about the laws peter schmidt broke.

I will keep everyone advised of the situation and if either of the two listed above do the right thing and fix this illegal,unethical,practices i will notify everyone UNTIL THEN AVOID THEM ALL ..

The full story was given to everyone and peter schmidt is upset hes been exposed for the person he and his company is...

Robert has misrepresented the facts again, no brokers say United commingled funds

AUTHOR: Peter - (U.S.A.)

Robert has accused us of commingling funds and not using escrow properly. This is just one more of his fabrications. The sale of his boat was conducted by auction. It was not a brokerage transaction and therefore not subject to brokerage escrow regulations. The salesman represented the buyer at the auction and after the transaction was complete the buyer paid the salesman an agreed upon fee. United Yacht Sales never held any money. The State of Florida DPBR, the broker's bonding company and all agencies who reviewed this are in total agreement that United Yacht nor its salesman did anything wrong and Robert knows that perfectly well.

Yet Robert continues to defame and libel United Yacht. The brokers he quotes were contacted by Robert, but never told the whole story and the word "auction" was never brought up, simply a general question as to the rules of escrow. Then Robert says that supports his claim? As usual he makes no sense.

Again United Yacht Sales has been under attack by Robert for over 6 months now. All his claims have been dismissed by every authority he has contacted.

Here's one ruling from our bonding company. " Dear Mr. and Mrs K--- ...once the yacht went under public auction/sale, the sale agreement with United Brokers' Mr. R.. was no longer in effect and Mr. R would not be obtaining any benefit or brokeragte commission. On the other had, Mr. P... never represeented you folks in the sale of the boat in question. All of the above is long after your notice that the boat was scheduled for public sale/auction. Once again your claim is repectfully denied"

MY QUESTION>>

If i purchase a yacht is it mandatory to put money into an escrow account or can you have the broker just put it in his private account?

From: Wheezy9870@aol.com
To: les@aaayachtsales.net
Sent: Tuesday, January 15, 2008 5:40 PM
Subject: Re: Broker question

The broker is required by law to have an escrow account for the purpose of holding all moneys involved in the yacht purchasing process. Why would anyone, seller, buyer or the broker want tp put money in the brokers personal account?

As you can see " BROKER IS REQUIRED BY LAW" so why wasnt this company prosecuted and its brokers? simple people doing the investigation are friends of the owner peter schmidt. And the Florida yacht broker association obviously doesnt care about the public safety hile doing business with florida brokers and its members...
