- If you are involved, interested or just plain curious about boating in Southern California, NAOS Yachts is a must visit. The NAOS team is a knowledgeable one stop office offering lessons, sales, rentals, maintenance and group rendezvous. The office feels more like a clubhouse than a boat dealership. My wife and I spent 2 years looking for a boat, and it wasn't until we met Gunnar Swanson at NAOS that we were finally able to easily make it happen. The right boat, easy financing, professional, genuine and courteous. No pressure--Gunnar just loves sailing! I only wish we discovered NAOS at the beginning of our search, because we could have had more time on the water. The NAOS motto "Sail more, Stress less," is what they are all about. So, if you are looking to be involved, buy, sell, or get expert advice about setting up your boat for offshore racing, long distance cruising, buoy racing or day-sailing, do yourself a favor and stop by NAOS Yachts in Marina Del Rey. You might even catch Gunnar giving a lesson on how to splice a line. When the time comes for a bigger boat (it always does), NAOS Yachts is where I'll find it.Robert
- If there was one word to sum up our experience with NAOS it is "Awesome". From the first phone call to to the christening of our boat and beyond. NAOS Is exceptional. Starting with Gunnar Swanson who is most remarkable, with the gift of knowing how to fit you with your future boat. His honesty and and sincere ability to ask you the questions you haven't perhaps thought about . Being there for your questions, regardless of the time of day or night. He had us sitting on our boat before we knew she was the choice we were going to make. We shopped up and down the coast, it was Gunnar who made sure every need was met and every concern was addressed. August 1st 2014 we became owners of our Beneteau Oceanis 38. NAOS on the outside is a Yacht dealer - On the inside, a family. I really can't put into words how much they all mean me. Mike Dunlap is "Johnny on the spot." He knows the boats like a Mama knows her baby. The support is phenomenal. This experience has and continues to be a great friendship. The get togethers they plan, the trips to Catalina as a group has welcomed us into the Beneteau with open arms. If you are looking to purchase a boat, NAOS is the place. Don't wait! You'll kick yourself for not doing it sooner. If I could take you by the hand and walk you through the doors of NAOS, I would. In my opinion it's an experience you will never regret.Rosemarie
- People say the 2 best days of boat ownership are the day you buy and the day you sell… this is not our experience. We had many many great days sailing Santa Monica Bay and going to Catalina. We bought a brand new Oceanis 34 in April 2010, the team at Naos made it a great experience, not only through the buying process, financing and insurance, or on delivery day, that’s easy; but day in day out over the years. With regular maintenance (those Beneteau’s are rock solid), constant advice, great service, introduction to other sailors, availability beyond the call of duty and they were fun to follow thru their own yacht races in the bay and across the Pacific and the Atlantic. Will we recommend them? Of course, we actually recommended them to ourselves! and just upgraded to a brand new Oceanis 38 last month!Marc & Cecile
- Really impressed with the team at Naos. Not only were they knowledgeable and accomodating (they sold me a new Beneteau Sense), but they also went above and beyond to help outfit and service the boat. A great class act, that I highly recommend.Travis – New Boat Owner
