I have known Chris Fairfax for 15 years, and during that period of time he has guided me through the process of building two boats (a Hunt Surfhunter 25 and then a Surfhunter 29), buying the Surfhunter 29 back again from an interim owner, and subsequently selling both of these boats. The SH 25 was sold before the SH 29 was even finished being built, and the SH 29 was sold before the listing was formal and out there on the Internet. I also turned to Chris to help me find and buy my next boat, a Little Harbor Whisper Jet 38, and we met in Maine in March for a very chilly sea trial. While I subsequently rejected that boat due to a bad engine analysis, he was able to find another one for me in Rhode Island. He has traveled from Maine to Florida to attend surveys and sea trials and has been a calming, reassuring and extremely knowledgeable presence in each of these transactions. He is quick to return phone calls and e-mails, and I have always felt that he had my back. I commend him highly, and would not buy or sell a boat through anyone else. If anyone wishes to talk to me about Chris, he will always have my contact info, as I will his.
