“I have always had a high level of proficiency from everyone I do business with so I have never been one to write a glowing letter about a company. There are however those rare occasions when I find myself doing business with a very extraordinary company and in this case it was Mikelson Yachts. All my dealings with Mikelson have exceeded all my expectations…The whole experience was superior and I will recommend Mikelson Yachts whenever and where ever I can. One last thing, as I have been so overjoyed with Mikelson Yachts on a business level that I have forgotten to mention how much I enjoy my ’43 Mikelson Sportfish. I just returned from a 10 day, 1100-mile trip down the Pacifica Coast of Baja. There were 6 of us on board and due to the Mikelson design with the huge bridge and wide cabins we were always comfortable. This has not been my experience on other 43 footers. On top of that the boat performed flawlessly! My sincere thanks to the entire Mikelson team.”

“Simply stated – we love our new Mikelson 50’!… The new galley aft design is outstanding. We can now prepare our meals and entertain while watching the entire goings on both inside and outside our boat. From the rich interior woods, the gorgeous top of the line fabrics, to the state of the art mechanics and electronics, the whole package is truly first class…Our overall satisfaction with the Mikelson owners and staff is and was wonderful. Each and every person we came in contact with was a true professional. It was a real pleasure working with the Mikelson “team.” Also, we’d like to add that the boat was delivered on time and in show quality condition. Thank you Mikelson Yachts for such a positive experience.”

“The first Mikelson 75 Sportfisher ever built, “Lady Holly”, was delivered to us in San Diego November 2004. After taking a couple months to rig her out with electronics and accessories we embarked on her maiden voyage to Mexico in Jan 2005…Whether we are using her for fishing trips to Mexico, dive trips in Central America, or long range trips to Alaska, the Lady Holly has performed wonderfully and has been a near perfect match for our current program. The amount of storage for supplies/spare parts, rods/reels, food, etc. and easy access of that storage is a huge plus on Lady Holly… Recently off the Northern California coast in a Gale Warning and Hazardous seas, we picked her up to 18 kts and rode quite comfortably. Also, with the travelling we have done having the enclosed bridge makes for a nice comfortable environment on those long deliveries… Overall, the Mikelson 75 sportfisher has been a great boat for our program. I highly recommend the 75 to anyone whether you plan to fish, dive, or just cruise.

“My wife and I have been Mikelson customers for six years. Our previous boat was a Mikelson 50 Sport Fisher. We were happy with the boat, but wanted something with a longer cruising range and more space for guests. Because of our trust in the people at Mikelson, when Dick Peterson showed us his concept of the 59 Nomad, we ordered one while it was still on the drawing boards. Since Mikelson yachts are highly customized, our requests for modifications were always encouraged. Many sets of plans were drawn before we settled on what we thought was the perfect design for our needs. We enjoyed laying out the boat’s interior and selecting the décor. The design staff did an excellent job helping us select a color palate and fabrics that fit our life style. Everyone at Mikelson made the process enjoyable and exciting… I highly recommend Mikelson Yachts. If you are a long-range cruiser and or a serious fisherman, the Nomad 59 is an excellent choice.”

“I am pleased to share my experiences in buying and owning a Mikelson Yacht with anyone interested in investing in a quality vessel. From the beginning of the process of buying the boat through the sale, many years later, it was a pleasure to deal with Dick, Pat and the other fine people at Mikelson Yachts. After previously owning two boats, I finally decided to purchase a used 50’ Sport Fisher named “Oasis” from Dick Peterson. The boat was beautiful, well maintained and very reasonably priced. As I struggled with the decision to make such a large investment, Dick and others at Mikelson were very helpful in providing valuable information and very patient. I never received any pressure from any of the Mikelson people. In fact, it seems to me that the business is run like a family operation. Dick and his staff helped with every aspect of the purchase of the boat, including financing, maintenance ideas and slip location. Clearly, their help did not end when the sale of the boat closed rather, they were there to make sure I was happy and satisfied. In fact, Paul spent hours with me going over the boat, teaching me how to drive the boat and helping me take the boat to Mexico. In essence, I was completely welcomed into “the Mikelson family”…In conclusion, I am happy to write an enthusiastic endorsement of Mikelson Yachts – both the product and the people…”

“From the start of our trip to the end it was full of fishing, diving, and utter enjoyment and relaxation onboard your creation. We were able to start the trip off with a bang, landing a 245 lb. Yellowfin Tuna off Mag Bay, not to mention multiple stripped marlin and dorado. This type of fishing continued for us when we arrived in Cabo and across to Puerto Vallarta. The boat [a Mikelson 59 Nomad Long-Range Luxury Sportfisher] could not have been designed any better for this type of travel and activities. It fishes as well as any sportfisher, but with ten times the comfort. I can easily run eight lines while trolling because of the wide beam…We made it home with no incidents and a[n] album full of pictures. As we designed the boat during the previous years, with all these plans in mind, I was joyfully satisfied with the utility of Redneck. The boat seems to have no limitations, and I can’t think of anything that I will change before doing it again next year. Thank you for making my dream a reality.”
