Since we were purchasing from Canada to the US, your knowledge and demeanor helped put our minds at ease. You communicated effectively by answering all our questions in a timely manner and made many recommendations which proved to be beneficial.

Hope you are well and that the business is good. We wanted to write to you to say how much we appreciated all the work that you have done in the purchase of our boat. We really loved your approach and your disponibility to answer all of our question and request. Thank you very much for everything you've done and we won't hesitate one second to do business with you again and to recommended you to people we know.
We really enjoy the boat and we are very happy with our choice. She fullfill all of our expectations. The trip back to Quebec went really well and we didn't have any problem at all. Everything in the boat is working properly too but .we have to learn a little, though !
We hope that you will have a good summer and if you pass by Quebec city we will really enjoy if you stop by to see us !
Have a nice day Jason !

MAY 20 2016-Good evening, Wanted to thank each of you for your help in my purchase of my new (to me) Regal from Jason at Crawford Yachts. Living in the US and buying it in Canada created a few challenges and made the process a little bit harder but with your all's help it went pretty smoothly. I believe I found the boat that will fit my needs as well as my families needs for several years. I knew what boat I wanted and what I wanted was too hard to find around my area, without buying brand new which didn't quite meet my budget. I know you all had to put extra time in to get everything completed, paperwork signed, delivered scheduled, boat lifts, customs worked out, etc., etc. So thank you for everything. Each of your respective businesses earned a thumbs up from me!
Hope you have a good summer and if I ever have someone buying a boat out of Canada and need your services I will send them your way!
As my wife and I were searching for our next boat we did not want to deal with brokers but only buy private. Our experience with past brokers have not been good experiences and put a sour taste in our mouth, as we found most of them told you what you wanted to hear in hopes the customer doesn’t know anything, well until they met me. You only get one shot with me and let me say, Jason, rose to the challenge. If Jason didn’t know the answer to your question he would tell you, and state he will find out instead of telling BS to keep you interested.
When you’re spending a lot of money you need to trust whom your dealing with. Jason has changed our thoughts on dealing with a broker and made this experience for us a great one. I look forward to dealing with Jason on our next future purchase.
Don’t change the way you do things Jason. It is respected and commendable dealing with someone that has a passion for a product and wants the buyer to feel good in dealing with you. I wouldn’t – and won’t – hesitate to refer you to others.
Keep up the great work!!!
Taras & Athena
I know Debbie sent a message to you as well, but you surely deserve a shout out from everyone whose Lives you came in contact with!.
You are a CLASS Act !!!! Dont ever forget it! and wherever your next steps in your journey will lead you, you will be sure to land on your feet. Spend some time with your wife and family to talk about any changes forthcoming and realize that as you go through the process of re-inventing yourself for your next role, if it happens, You will SUCCEED!!!
I for one have the utmost confidence in you and I thank you for the time you spent with us when we purchased the 390.
Sincerely, and with a Boatload of Gratitude
another Jason Crawford satisfied customer !!!!!!
I mean that most sincerely – good people are like cream, they always rise to the top, and you are a very good person, and employee.
I can tell you that because I have been in business for 45 years and the radar in my head has allowed me to identify the better people in business.
My radar has you on its high definition screen.
So, remain committed to the highest possible levels of personal integrity as you go forward and do not be tempted by “quick fixes”.
Remember that business is really nothing more than working with relationships and relationships always involve people.
You have very strong people skills and you know your market and product well.
It has been truly a pleasure dealing with you over the past 17 years. I wish you all the best as this situation sorts itself out. I am sure you will do just fine whatever that ends up being. Stay in touch.
Sorry to hear this news. Please feel free to request a reference letter if you think the word of an old retired guy is worth anything!
Jason,I think regardless of what happens your personal brand with boaters is well established and well known.
Let us know how you make out with this and if we can help in any way.
Best of luck.
I enjoy dealing with you. Your honesty and followup is refreshing in this day and age. Please keep in touch. As a boater I have 2ftitis.
I would like to find a 45ft sportfish. The boat I have is turn-key and common sence says I should stay with what I have. So much for that.
I heard from Al Fernie, but the article seemed status quo would prevail. Guys like you are rare Jason......please stay in touch, I am also glad I was part of your $108 Million record...impressive.
We had a great experience purchasing our boat through you. I felt even though ours was a small purchase you treat us like it was a million dollar yacht.
Hi Jason.... We do want to thank you so much for your support and guidance thru all if our journey.
We are in Orillia now but still think of everyone often. Please keep in touch with us.
Janet and Mark

Paul and Carol
On a personal level, we really enjoyed our two purchases through you- very professional and personable.
Don & Joanne
You are a talented boat salesman.
It was always enjoyable doing business with you.
I would like to thank you for all that you've done for me since we met, and hope that everything works out for the best for you.
Sometimes these situations turn out to have a silver lining I hope for you and all the great people there this turns out to be the case.
Thank you for the great service.
Thank you for the very professional and heartfelt letter you sent Terry. We have spoken to many friends and boaters about your expertise and professionalism. I imagine your future will be bright because you have blessed us with your knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail. Your kindness and compassion shines through in your business dealings. My hope is you will be rewarded for your efforts.
Terry and I went through a similar situation with General Motors after 33 years of complete allegiance to the company. We're happier and much more comfortable now than we ever were before.
Our summer on our 39 Cruisers Yacht was magical.
Thanks for the note. Good people (like you) and good businesses tend to be sought out and often do even better after such an event. Stay optimistic - it will all work out well for you.
Keep your chin up and remember that you have a long list of clients who will support you.
Dave & Monika
The important thing is you keep your health,You are a great salesman so I,m sure you,ll land on your feet.
I called you last week because I was aware of the situation ,, we are opening a large entertainment complex on Hwy 11 just north of Barrie and there will be lots of positions available for good honest people like yourself so keep in touch. Please let me know if there is anything I can do .
Let's plan for a good outcome favourable to you. Regardless I expect we will continue to have an excellent relationship going forward.
Usually it means the new beginning to something better for you. Hope to see you land on our feet again soon.
Let me know where you will hang your hat next.
I can only say how much I appreciated you and your concern for Brenda and I and our Regal. You are an asset that cannot be denied and would be most valuable to any employer; you certainly are to us. God Bless and let us know how it all ends up for you yourself.
Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas - when served lemons make lemonade!

Just take one day at time for now and I’m sure you will land on your feet.
Keep in touch.
Good to hear from you.
We will definitely stay in touch, and I hope you get to go on more initial sea trials.
Thank you for your help and caring through our last sale and purchase.

I want to thank you personally for all the services you have provided to me over the years.

I wanted respond to you quickly. If you do look for something else in furthering your career I want you to feel free to use my name in any way you might need. Even though I have been retired for many years I still have contacts and a reputation. You know I was Vice President of Polygram Record worldwide out of England and do have a reputation in the IT industry.
I always considered you a trustworthy and honest person even though you were a salesman.
I would be pleased to offer any support I can to your future.
Suzanne and I always enjoyed dealing with you when we were into boating and admired your persistence and easy manner. You're the only person to sell us 3 boats!! If you ever need a personal recommendation I will be very happy to do that.
Best of luck to you and your family.
Suzanne and Wayne
Firstly, thanks for the ongoing relationship, and opportunity to deal with a true professional. I wish you well going forward, and hopefully something positive results. Do stay in touch , and who knows what that may lead to.
Garry R. McClean P.Eng/MBA
We thoroughly enjoyed our experience purchasing our boat with you. Your personal service was outstanding.
If they don't and you ever need a reference please do not hesitate to contact me, any marina would certainly benefit from having you
Jason.. you will easily come out of this a better man.......and I believe strongly your talents will be grabbed up by someone in the industry!
please stay in touch
Maybe the name will change, but you will be involved in the next venture I am sure. Let me know how you make out and keep in touch.
It has always been a pleasure dealing with you.
I hope it works
Jason ,I was impressed with the service that you gave me having dealt with several marine individuals over the last 20 years. I wish you all the luck. Things always turn out for the best after it is all said and done. It is getting through the initial issue.
You will do well.
Let me know Sal
Your good character will help you land on your feet.
Sent from my iPhone
Please keep in touch with us. We still want you to sell our boat in the spring. We wish you
The best Jason.
This will certainly change the looks of the boat show. We will be there is our same booth. Stop in if you are at the show
Dennis and Anna
I wish you luck in the future.
Sorry to hear this Jason, after 18 years. You know the old saying, when one door closes... another one opens. I sincerely this happens to you. Perhaps, go into business yourself on brokering? Perhaps I can help.
If you need any references,you can certainly add me to the list. I wish I had more ties to the boating industry so I could lend a hand. If you need anything, please don't hesitate to reach out to me. I know you are a hustler and won't be sitting on your hiney.
All the best to you and your family
If you ever need a recommendation please do not hesitate in giving me a call.
Best of luck in the future and keep me posted.
If you need a reference from me it would be my pleasure
Thanks for the updates Jason, I appreciate them and hope that things somehow work out for you. With your track record and network any new owners would be mad not to have you on the team.
All the best,
We were happy doing business with you!
Wish you all the best. We are sure you will find some good position in the near future!
Brian & Daryl
Hi Jason, thanks for the update. I hope you get settled with something suitable in short order. I am happy to be a reference for you if you ever need one. That said, I am sure most of your customers feel the same way, so you shouldn’t have a problem.
Michael and Madeline
You were a pleasure to deal with. Best of luck with your future endeavours.
I am quite certain with your qualifications you will be scooped up quickly! Someone of your caliber and experience will not be unemployed for long or be looking for a job. :)
Good luck and please keep in touch,
I have always enjoyed doing business with you. I'm sure that with your experience and expertise this will be a very temporary situation. Please keep in touch and I wish you the best for 2015.
have enjoyed our relationship with you over the years and will miss your boating knowledge and dedication to the marine industry. Good luck in your next move and we hope to see you remain in the industry.
