We finally met Andrew Tilden in December of 2014 after much e-mail and phone correspondence. Coming from Atlanta to purchase the “boat of our dreams” in Miami, Andrew was eager to help us in any way possible. ( He realized that mere logistics played a large obstacle in our search.) Accommodating, courteous, painstaking are all words we could use to describe him and his effort!
After a lengthy weekend and negotiations, all involved were disappointed when our offer was rejected and our “dream” fell through; however, Andrew went back to “square one”, continuing the search to find us a boat. He was sensitive to our work schedule. He was courteous and professional in all that he did. And in the end, we did find a boat that we took home (our dream - and even better than the “deal” that fell through)! Thanks to Gilman Yachts we found our boat, and we made a special new friend in the process, Andrew Tilden!- Tommy and Marilyn DeLoach / Monroe, Georgia
