UNITED YACHTS HAS BEEN INVOLVED IN BREAKING THE LAW,UNETHICAL PRACTICES, AND LYING. MY FAMILY HAD OUR YACHT LISTED WITH THIS COMPANY AND SEVERAL MONTHS AFTER LISTING IT THE YACHT WAS STOLEN. WE NOTIFIED THE BROKERS IMMEDIATELY AND THEY AGREED IT WAS STOLEN.

SEVERAL MONTHE AFTER THE THEFT A BUYER COME TO THEIR OFFICE AND THEY WENT AND SHOWED THE YACHT WHILE IN THE THIEVES POSSESSION ,TELLING THE BUYER THEY WERE REPRESENTING ME THE OWNER. THREE DAYS LATER THE THIEVES HELD A PRIVATE ILLEGAL SALE OF THE YACHT AND THE BROKER CALLED THE INTERESTED CUSTOMER AND TOLD HIM THE THIEVES OWNED YACHT AND WERE SELLING IT. IN FLORIDA THE YACHT BROKERS ARE SUPPOSED TO FOLLOW THE STRICT GUIDELINES OF THE FLORIDA YACHT AND SHIP BROKERS ACT. (GOOGLE IT).

THE LAW SAYS A BROKER REPRESENTING THE BUY OR SELL OF A BOAT LARGER THAN 33 FEET FOR A COMMISSION MUST DO IT AS A BROKER. IT SAYS ALL MONEYS MUST BE PUT INTO AN ESCROW ACOUNT. THE HIRING BROKER-OWNER PETER SCHMIDT TOLD HIS BROKER THE NIGHT BEFORE THE ILLEGAL SALE HE WOULD HAVE TO DO IT AS A PRIVATE INDIVIDUAL (ILLEGAL).

SO AFTER REPRESENTING THE BUYER AT THE ILLEGAL SALE THE BROKER HAD THE BUYER WIRE HIS 7K COMMISSION INTO HIS PRIVATE ACCOUNT. THE SALE DID NOT GO THROUGH, THE BUYER WAS OUT HIS COMMISION BUT THE BROKER CALLED TO MAKE PAYMENT ARRAINGEMENTS. THE BROKER LAWRENCE PIRRITINO MADE ONE PAYMENT THEN DISAPPEARED. THE DAY I EXPOSED THEIS COMPANY THE BROKER AND OWNER OF THE COMPANY CALLED THE BUYER TO GET PAYMENTS GOING AGAIN. THESE PEOPLE ARE LIARS, LAWBREAKERS, SCUMBAGS AND DO NOT GIVE A d**n ABOUT THEIR OWN CUSTOMERS.

RECENTLY I WAS CALLED AND TOLD A BROKER OF UNITED YACHTS TOM THOMAS ( GOOGLE TOM THOMAS UNITED YACHTS) WAS LYING TO CUSTOMERS COVERING FOR THE LAWS HIS COMPANY BROKE. I CALLED TOM THOMAS POSING AS A CUSOMER AND ASKED HIM ABOUT THESE POSTINGS. TOM IMMEDIATELY LIED,FALSIFIED FACTS AND YOU CAN READ HIS E MAIL SENT TO ME CONFIRMING THESE LIES. HE EVEN WENT AS FAR AS SAYING THE U.S. COAST GUARD STEPPED IN AND GAVE THE THIEVES THE TITLE TO VESSEL AND ALLOWED THEM TO SELL IT. THEN HE SAID UNITED YACHTS WON A BIG SUIT AGAINST ME WHICH NEVER HAPPENED.

STATE AGENCIES HAVE CONFIRMED THIS WAS ILLEGAL. IF YOU WANT TO BUY OR SELL A YACHT THIS IS NOT THE COMPANY TO USE. I CAN REFER A GOOD BROKER WHICH ARE RARE IN FLORIDA.

PLEASE READ MY SITES,GOOGLE UNITED YACHTS,SOULCAST UNITED YACHTS, AND READ LETTERS FROM SEVERAL PEOPLE THEY SCREWED INCLUDING THE MAN THEY LIED TO AND REPRESENTED AT AUCTION.

Why are posing as some Florida yacht broker now?

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

You couldn't even keep your own canoe, much less be responsible for others boats.

But seriously, why haven't you actually sued them?

I really don't care what phony dog and pony show you are trying to put on by allegedly recording someone you claim to be a policeman. You are a proven liar many times over.

Why haven't you sued them? Why not?

Why haven't you sued them and the alleged government officials that you continue to slander if you are right?

Why have you stopped slandering the government officials that deemed everything was done correctly? Threatened with a suit there too?

And why do you keep alleging that others agree with you when there is no one that does? Why do you talk to yourself through different screen names? When are you finally going to accept the summons and appear in court?

Please provide proof of your fraudulent allegations that I have different screen names (unlike your dumba** that does and signs 'robert' to them you loser) and that I post on sites all over the internet.
Much like your boyfriend charles, you can't and is just one of your many, many lies on this site. You really are not as important in the scheme of life as you seem to think. That's why your bogus claims are unfounded and no one takes your lies seriously. I have no need to follow you over the internet....I debunk your claims right here.
Why does the price of the canoe in question keep changing? That's another lie you've been throwing around for awhile.

FLORIDA YACHT BROKER ASSOCIATION MEMBERS CONFIRM AGAIN UNITED YACHTS WAS ILLEGAL

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

THIS IS GETTING WAY TO EASY...

Subject: Public boat auction conversation...

Craig,

Thank you for taking the time to explain the questions i had for you. So what i
understand from you is at a public auction if im going to purchase a boat at the
auction(larger than 33 feet) and have someone stand in for me and pay them a
commssion they must be a licensed broker or its illegal correct?


Robert


ANSWER...


That is correct. The broker is "acting as agent" on behalf of the seller and must be a licensed Yacht & Ship Broker with the State of Florida.


HERE IS ANOTHER QUESTION I FOLLOWED UP ON...

Subject: Re: Public boat auction conversation...


So, there is no exclusion of any sort in the yacht and ship brokers act that would allow for a non broker to represent at an auction what so ever?





ANSWER.....

If they are collecting a commission, no.



CAN WELL SPELL IT ANY CLEARER????


ALL 100% OF FLORIDA YACHT BROKERS STILL CONFIRM ITS ILLEGAL...


THANKS CRAIG TRAVIS FOR YOUR HONEST ANSWER. TO BAD THE GROUP YOU BELONG TO (F.Y.B.A.) AND CERTAIN BROKERS LIKE UNITED YACHTS CAN'T BE AS HONEST...





CRAIG TRAVIS IS OWNER OF AFFINITI YACHT BROKERAGE IN FLORIDA. HE HAS BEEN BROKERING FOR OVER 20 YEARS AND KNOWS WHAT HE'S TALKING ABOUT.





NOTE*********

TO THE MANY BROKERS WHO HAVE CONFIRMED WHAT WE ALREADY KNOW, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. THE SAD PART IS YOUR OWN FELLOW F.Y.B.A. YACHT BROKER PETER SCHMIDT OF UNITED YACHTS HAS NOT ONLY BROKE THE LAW, AND WAS VERY UNETHICAL, HE NOW IS DRAGGING YOUR REPUTATION INTO THIS.



THE STATEMENT FROM THE MANY BROKERS WEVE GOTTEN NOT ONLY CONFIRMS WE ARE RIGHT IN WHAT WE HAVE BEEN SAYING , IT SHOWS THERE IS STILL A MAJOR PROBLEM IN AN INDUSTRY AND THE STATE AGENCY THAT REGULATES THEY ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. WHEN YOU LOOK AT A BROKERAGE LIKE UNITED YACHTS AND THE MANY FALSE AND OUTRIGHT LIES THIS COMPANY HAS MADE IT SHOWS THIS IS A COMPANY YOU CANNOT TRUST YOUR BUSINESS WITH.



THE OTHER DAY AFTER BARTON HOLMES RESPONDED TO OUR QUESTIONS KNOWING IT WAS ILLEGAL TO DO WHAT WE ASKED HIM, PETER SCHMIDT AND HIS BROKER LAWRENCE PIRRITINO WERE ON THE PHONE WITH HIM WITHIN AN HOUR.



HOW MUCH MORE WILL PETER SCHMIDT DRAG HIS FELLOW BROKERS IN AND MAKE AN ALREADY QUESTIONABLE INDUSTRY LOOK WORSE?



BETWEEN THE THREE BLOGS I HAVE POSTED ON THIS OVER 60,000 FLORIDA BOATING READERS HAVE READ WHATS GOING ON HERE..



THAT DOES NOT INCLUDE ANY OF THE SMALLER BLOGS WEVE POSTED. HOW PATHETIC IS A BROKER TO DRAG OTHER BROKERS INTO THIS AND POSSIBLY RUIN MORE REPUTATIONS BECAUSE THIS MAN KNOWINGLY BROKE SEVERAL LAWS AND TOOK A BUYER TO A HIDDEN LOCATION TO PICK UP A YACHT THAT BELONGED TO HIS OWN CUSTOMER THAT HE KNEW WAS STOLEN????



YOU CAN CALL THE BUYER THIS HAPPENED TO THAT UNITED YACHTS REPRESENTED - KEVIN MC CARTHY- 1-904-556-3223



JUST LOOK ABOVE AT THE COOMENTS SCHMIDT MADE FROM DAY 1 OVER A YEAR AGO SAYING HIS COMPANY AND BROKERS NEVER TOOK PART IN THIS ILLEGAL SALE, THEN JUST OVER A WEEK AGO CHANGES HIS STORY AND SAY THEY DID TAKE PART IN IT????



DO YOU TRUST A COMPANY THAT LIES AND LIES AND LIES???

Get a life!

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

Better yet, he should get to court and PROVE his allegations.

But alas, Robert (AKA Mr. Foreclosure, Mr. Powerwash, Mr. Hotdog) doesn't ACT like someone who wants to go to court.

It took months for him to be served and it will very likely be months before he complies with the plaintiff's request for documents.

Does this appear as someone who wants his day in court?

Of course not!
