"We dealt with John Patterson this spring when purchasing our 2nd boat (40’ Sea Ray) and he was amazing! He ensured we had all the time needed to view the boat, was able to answer all our questions and extremely professional throughout the whole process. We were very impressed and even keep in touch with him still!"
"Whether you are in the market to buy or to sell a boat, we highly recommended John Patterson!
Firstly, we sold our boat, through John, to a difficult, demanding buyer and John dealt with all the headaches, leaving us without any worries!
Then, we bought our current boat through John and again he effectively dealt with any concerns and headaches that we would have had to deal with on our own, including completing all of the registration paperwork!
John is knowledgeable, honest and so very personable! He took the worry out of purchasing our previously owned boat- he was always there for us despite his busy schedule, answering our never ending questions, knowing about the boat’s background and taking care of the necessary repairs.
Words cannot express our gratitude for all you have done for us, John!
We’ve told you this many times but you’re the best!

"A truly heartfelt thanks to John for all of your assistance in my boat purchase.
From the first phone call, all the way to the day I came to take the boat home, you were a thorough gentleman, assisting me every step of the way.
The only regret I have is that I initially doubted your sincerity after reading the "china-gate" review form one of your customers who claimed that you did not disclose the fact that an engine in a boat he purchased from you was a Chinese knock off. In my opinion, this review is misleading and disingenuous at best because the person should have done his due diligence, as I did, before completing the transaction.
He should have hired someone to do a survey, as I did and then had a mechanical inspection done, as I did with your assistance.
You were always forthright and told me that you are not making any representations and that the information you have about the boat was given to you by the boat's owner. Under these circumstances, it clearly was my responsibility to have the boat examined by a professional before buying it to make sure it meets my expectations; blaming you for my shortcomings in not doing a pre-inspection is ridiculous, and I am so glad I did not turn away from this deal because of this misleading review as I would have missed a fantastic opportunity of buying the boat that I did which my family and I are thoroughly enjoying.
Thank you, John, for your honesty and integrity. I consider myself very fortunate to have met you and purchased my very first boat through you. A boat we will continue to enjoy for many years until it's time to upgrade to a bigger boat, which I hope to buy from you as well!"
"A few weeks back we pulled the trigger on a 2007 34 Cruisers Express. John Patterson was very professional and he did a great job at accommodating our schedules. John has gone above and beyond and has even checked in with us a few times now since our purchase to make sure everything is perfect. We are extremely happy with our new boat and look forward to many great adventures!
We would highly recommend St. Clair Boat Sales to our friends and family."
"As new boaters we recently had a great experience working with John Patterson on the purchase of our cruiser. His knowledge and connections allowed us to have confidence in the buying process. Customer service was great with quick response and follow-up to our questions and needs. Highly recommend John Patterson of St Clair Boat sales."
"I recently dealt with John Patterson at St Clair Boat Sales in selling my boat. John is a fantastic guy and very professional. He is extremely knowledgeable regarding boat acquisitions and sales. You can tell when you meet someone that they are doing what they love to do. It shows in the quality of work and the care and thought that goes into their business transactions. The whole process of buying and selling at St Clair Boat Sales is very customer friendly; it took all of the stress out of selling my boat (we all know how stressful dealing with boats can be). This was easy and enjoyable - imagine that!
Look no further - St Clair Boat Sales has all the attributes you need to acquire or sell boats and watercraft, Call John Patterson, he's a beauty, and your needs will be exceeded! Thanks again for the great service John!"
