Pud’n & Jerry Waller

From Our Clients


Funny how life works, we heard about Pud’n and Jerry who had sold an unusual good sized one of a kind motor yacht, the owners who are deceased, but it would take someone who would see the beauty in their cruiser who already has done the loop, very comfortably, yep they sold it to others who adored it. Of course, Pud’n and Jerry with their knowledge of all boats, sincerity and honesty, oh did I forget to say fun, made our letting go be now a wonderful memory that was hard for us in moving on into a now boat less world. They made the transition for us and the new buyers seem effortless, it seemed for us like we sell boats every day of our life and knew what we were doing. We were in awe of their professionalism, I have such respect, admiration and loyalty to our new friends who found the perfect couple for our unique boat.

I would like to thank Jerry and Pud’n at Gulf South Yacht Sales for going above and beyond on helping me sell my father’s 70ft custom trawler. My father passed away a little over 3 years ago and we tried to sell the boat ourselves without any luck. We then hired a broker that never laid eyes on the boat the 6 months he had the boat under contract. Needless to say he was unsuccessful selling the boat as well. Then I found Pud’n and Jerry and the attention to detail was evident from the first conversation with them. They helped put me in contact with the people I needed to do maintenance and repairs on the boat, looked in on the boat for me as I live in a different state, made sure the work I had done was being handled properly and kept me up to date on the progress. Jerry even helped us get the boat across Lake Pontchartrain to a repair shop in New Orleans. They made a difficult process as pain free as possible and did everything in their power to help. I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell their boat. I have bought and sold numerous properties without the help of a real estate broker and thought I could do the same with this boat and I am not sure I would have ever gotten it done without their help.

We LOVED working with Gulf South Yacht Sales. Since we live in a boating community, we have had lots of dealings with boat brokers, a lot of whom leave something to be desired. Ms. Pud’n and Mr. Jerry are two of the BEST that we’ve ever come in contact with. They were always prompt in providing information, they were extremely professional, very kind and courteous, and generally two people whom you’d just want to invite over for dinner. We really can’t say enough good things about our experience with Gulf South. We highly recommend them to ANYONE looking for a boat, no matter the budget or size. They’ll find the boat of your dreams for you!

Jerry and Pud’n were a PLEASURE to work with on my recent purchase of a boat from Gulf South Yacht Sales. I was a little nervous at first because of the distance and not being able to go back and forth from Montgomery AL. to Madisonville, LA. to test drive and look at the boat. After first contact with Jerry and Pud’n, they both went right to work answering any questions and concerns I had. In addition, Jerry worked with and ensured that everyone I had hired to inspect the boat had immediate and full access to it while Pud’n worked directly with my bank ensuring they had all documentation needed to process the loan. I could not have had a more pleasing experience. I would DEFINITELY RECOMMEND Gulf South Yacht Sales to someone looking to purchase a boat.

We recently had the opportunity to work with Pud’n and Jerry Waller on the sale of our luxurious motor yacht. I refer to them as the “Dynamic Duo”. Pud’n is all about the Details and Jerry is the Nuts & Bolts go to guy. They kept up abreast on client showings and were very upfront and honest as well. I highly recommend them, you will be pleased with their services.

We feel sooo lucky to have stumbled across Gulf South Yacht Sales and Pud’n and Jerry! You guys have gone above and beyond and it is very much appreciated. Feel like we made friends and would definitely recommend you to anyone we came across looking to buy or sell.

Pud’n and Jerry could not have been better at assisting us in acquiring our first large boat. We knew we wanted a used boat, but one that still had plenty of use on it and one that we were comfortable we would be getting a good deal on. They traveled with us twice to Florida for the survey and the sale, and assisted us in all of our needs as we went through the process. Top notice, splendid folks that were a pleasure to do business with.

When I recently decided to sell my Sea Ray 460 I called Pud’n and Jerry at Gulf South Yacht sales! I have never worked with two that worked any harder to get it done. Several times they went above and beyond what you would expect. They make a great team Pud’n is VERY knowable all the legal paperwork and computer savvy. They even picked me up and took me to Wildlife & Fisheries in Baton Rouge to make sure we had everything in order. Jerry is is the best when it comes to knowing boats mechanically what makes them work, and just what to look for. I can whole heartily recommend them! Not only are they dear friends!!!!! They are simply the best team around.

I would like to thank Pud’n & Jerry for selling my boat and appreciate all they did for me at Gulf South Yacht Sales. With the friendly staff and prompt attention to my questions, I will definitely refer friends and family to their brokerage and will use them again in the future for any of my boat needs. These guys promised to go “Above & Beyond” and you did exactly that. Thanks for your hard work and dedication to your customers.

Thank you again for your efforts is selling my Tiara. Although it took a while you stayed with it and eventually found the perfect match for the boat. You handled all of the details involved and made the experience as smooth as could be expected. Continue the good work! Thanks,

“Pud’n and Jerry were great! They found a buyer for our boat in a relatively short period of time (which is not easy thing to do given the way the economy is right now!). They were very professional in bringing the buyer and seller together and working out the details to everyone’s satisfaction. Both did whatever they could to make everything go smoothly and put any concerns or worries to rest. My wife and I would wholeheartedly recommend Pud’n and Jerry Waller to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a boat.” 
Ted & Michele Lignieres, Covington, LA. 

“Pud’n and Jerry were extremely helpful with our recent boat purchase. We were 10 hours away, so it was a bit of a challenge. But they made it so easy. They were always accessible and ready to help us in any way we needed. It was such a smooth transaction. We would definitely consider contacting them for our next boat purchase.” 
Jennifer & Mark Toebe, St. Louis, MO. 

Gulf South Yacht Sales helped me purchase my first boat. Jerry and Pud’n are very knowledgable and make the experience of purchasing a boat simple. My entire family was involved in the selection of the boat we decided to purchase. They helped us understand the history of the boat, the previous owners maintenance routines and helped me during the sea trial. They provided the answers to all of our questions and made some great recommendations during the process. They are fun people to work with and very proactive and positive. I recommend working with Gulf South Yacht Sales. Thanks. 
David Powers, New Orleans, LA. 

We had the most pleasant experience purchasing our first sailboat through GSYS! Jerry is so knowledgable and not a pushy salesman at all. He truly tries to work for both the seller and the purchaser! We have made great friends with Jerry and Pud’n through our purchasing journey ! Thanks Jerry and Pud’n!
Rhonda & Scott Willett, Ponchatoula, LA. 

I truly enjoyed working with Gulf South Yacht Sales in the sale of my S2 Sailboat. They took care of everything for me. From advertising, boat showings, sea trials, to act-of-sale. Very professional and personal. Great job guys!
Dr. Tim Gallagher, Slidell, LA. 

Pud’n and Jerry sold my boat in April and it was was of the happiest days of my life. They advised me on pricing my boast based on similar boats that had sold in the past year. When potential buyers called they were quick to set up appointments and were able to provide customers with in depth details about the boat. Gulf South Yacht Sales advertises on Yacht World and they even put a video and information on You Tube for me. I never could have sold my boat without the help of Pud’n and Jerry. Thank you! 
Leslie Cook, Covington, LA.

Although I am not currently in the market to buy or sell a boat, if I was, Jerry and Pud’n would be my only choice for help. I have watched them make lots of folks happy. Those that were selling, those that were buying, and a lot of the time, both! Customer service is a trait that is not easily found. It is obviously ingrained in them. I have seen these two go the extra mile numerous times to make sure the deal is done properly. 
Claire Manuel, Slidell, LA. 

Our experience with Gulf South Yacht Sales could not have been better! Jerry and Pud’n Waller were always available, easy to work with, and had our boat sold in less than two months. We would recommend Gulf South Yacht Sales to anyone who is either buying or selling a boat. They also sold a boat to us.
Rick and Robin Chapman, Charlotte, NC 

Jerry and Pud’n Waller of Gulf South Yacht Sales, made the sale of my sailboat easy and effortless! Since I do not live near my boat’s marina, I especially appreciated the benefits of them handling all of the advertising and the showings of my boat themselves, freeing me of having to make multiple trips back and forth. When they located a serious buyer, the sale process was easy since I only had to go to the marina once for a test sail and then once more for the actual transaction. Having Jerry & Pud’n handle all aspects of the transaction, including the payment, titling document, etc, made it well worth my contacting them! Both are extremely nice and personable, all the while fiercely watching out for my best interests. I highly recommend having them in your corner for your boat’s sale! 
Kevin Bodden, Denham Springs, LA. 

I listed my 2001 Carver 570 with Pud’n and Jerry Waller Of Gulf South Yacht Sales. The listing, showing prospective buyers and ultimate sale was the most professional and thorough I have ever experienced. Every detail of the  haul- out, survey and sea trial was handled by Pud’n and Jerry flawlessly.  Whether you want to sell your boat or in the market to buy, personal service and  indefatigable industry from beginning to end is what you get when you use Pud’n and Jerry Waller of Gulf South Yacht Sales. 
Captain Ron Kelly, Madisonville, LA,

We wanted to thank you both for the above and beyond support you showed us. This was our first yacht purchase and your guidance made this a much simpler process. You knew the hoops to jump through and steered us in the right direction. Your dedication in easing us through the entire process is extremely appreciated. I know we started off as strangers but we now consider you to be our friends. We can’t wait to get you out on the MIKELI. Hopefully the ride we have together will be as smooth as the buying process. We hope this will be our only yacht purchase, but if we ever have a need you will be the one and only people we call.
