INSIDE THE BUYER'S JOURNEY: THE JACOBSONS (FOUNTAINE PAJOT OWNERS)
POSTED ON: 

Purchasing a yacht requires a decent amount of research. Each buyer has specific, personal and logistical requirements for their yacht based on their sailing or motor experience. Working with a trusted yacht company, such as Atlantic Cruising Yachts, is the best way to ensure a smooth and enjoyable buying experience. For Jake and Nancy Jacobson, their journey to new yacht ownership with us began in 2014. The Jacobsons met our team during the Annapolis Boat Show and from there decided to attend one of our Open House events. They ultimately decided to partner with us for their purchase because of our "supporting services and product". Jake and Nancy both have 12 years of sailing experience, two of which are with catamarans, so they chose to buy a  Fountaine Pajot Lucia 40 . They felt it was the "perfect size and price point for a couple, and for chartering". Their 2019 Lucia 40, named Harbour Lights, was officially commissioned in November 2018. She is a Maestro model with 3 cabins and 2 heads. Her elegant lines, bright interior spaces, and extensive social seating spaces are signatures of the Fountaine Pajot brand.  Harbour Lights was recently placed into charter with  Cruise Abaco  in the Bahamas and will travel up to  Cruise Annapolis  for the spring charter season as part of Atlantic Cruising Yachts' Follow-the-Sun model. The Jacobsons hope to have her based out of these two  Waypoints┬«  locations to capitalize on key charter seasons for the next 5-6 years. Below is a testimonial they provided regarding their experience with us and Cruise Abaco: 
"Nancy and I just wanted to send a quick note to recognize and pass along our appreciation for the outstanding customer service and support we received from Paul Smith, Cruise Abaco, and Alex yesterday. They were able to address several of the minor issues we had on the spot and have a plan to address the rest when we bring the boat back to Annapolis this summer. Having Paul and Alex fly into the Bahamas, with Mark, the owner of Cruise Abaco, delivering them right to our boat anchored in Hope Town goes well above and beyond the support most customers would expect. We just wanted to let you know the support we've received from you, your team, and Cruise Abaco is very much appreciated. We will certainly spread the good word about ACY and Cruise Abaco." - Jake Jacobson
