Chris was born and raised on Aquidneck Island, cruising and fishing his father's power boats from a young age. He continued by racing dinghies and small keelboats out of Tiverton Yacht Club.

I was referred to Chris Carney of NorthStar Yacht sales when time came to sell my Jeanneau 34.2. The vessel being registered in Canada, Chris began his work by recommending the right people to look after the US custom issues. Throughout the selling process, he remained focused, dedicated, easy to reach and always pleasant to speak to. He also stored some electronic equipment at his office and kept an eye on the vessel by paying regular visits to the boatyard. After finding a good buyer, and with the border being closed (COVID19), Chris handled everything on my behalf, making sure the new owner was satisfied, being present for the survey, taking charge of the paperwork, the cross-border transfer of funds and more. Impressive work. Thank you very much Chris.
