About Captain Matt

Captain Matt because a boater at age 5, when his parents bought a used 16’ Larson tri-hull with an 85HP Mercury 2-stroke. See the picture of Matt (red life vest) and his brother Steve on the family's first of many boats.

From that day forward he and his family were boaters.

During his 10+ year career in the boating industry as a pleasure boat specialist and consumer advocate with his Boat Buyer’s Secret Weapon YouTube Channel (with nearly 20,000 subscribers and over 3,000,000 views a year) he has operated over 500 boats from pontoons, tri-toons, bow riders, deck boats, aluminum fishing boats, skiffs, center consoles, jet boats, cruisers and sport yachts.

In addition, he has trained nearly 200 first-time boaters on pontoons, bow riders, cruisers, jet boats, single engines and twins so they could operate their boat safely, efficiently and confidently without all stress and heart-ache most other experience.

Many have happily paid over $100/hour to do private trainings which typically last 4 hours.

Realizing that few new boaters get that level of training before hitting the water, Capt. Matt decided to put his proven training system into an easy to digest video format to help even more boat owners avoid the stress, frustration, cussing and dings that come from not having total control of their boat around the dock and other common boating situations.

You can find Capt. Matt on the water with his 2 daughters and wife on the lakes in the Carolinas, with his in-laws boating on Lake Loudoun near Knoxville, Tennessee or with his parents, brother and sister, nieces and nephews at the family lake place on the Lake of the Ozarks in Missouri. 

And, if there is a boat show, marina or chance to be on the water, he is likely nearby.

Why Capt. Matt created this program

Boating is part of him and he wishes more than anything that you develop the proper boat handling skills because boating will provide some amazing memories for you and your family as well and the better you can run your boat, the better those memories will be!

What Do Other Boater's Like You Have to Say

...looks like investing $47.00 into Matt and his program has saved us $5,900.00!

"Well, it looks like investing $47.00 into Matt and his program has saved us $5,900.00. on an all around better used boat!!!

 It's an extremely well maintained, single owner, 2013 Cobalt 242 with 115 hours. The owner actually provided a BoatHistoryReport when I asked for a HIN.

 I am currently searching for a Marine Surveyor near the San Antonio area to survey the boat so that we can finish our due diligence and pay the seller. If you know of anyone you can recommend please let me know.

 Once again, you guys rock!!! I could not have done this without you. "

Jeff Sebern

First-Time Boat Owner, 2013 Cobalt 242

I am a happy captain(almost) now!

"Thank you for the offer and all that you do. I am 66 and just bought my first and last boat. We have a Suncatcher 322RC with a 200HP Yamaha.

I watched your series over and over because not only was it my first, I really had zilch knowledge about boats. But I went in there with my checklist, prepared questions, and prepared negotiation questions. The questions had them on their heels a couple of times. Bottom line, my price was over $10,000 less than I could find any comparable boat at several dealers or online.

I am a happy captain(almost) now. Of course, I need to dive off into the rest of your videos to learn all I can about towing, loading, safety, general operation, and much more including getting my boating license. Thanks again."

David Williams

Worth what you save!

"If you are serious about buying a boat within the next year, paying for this program be worth what you save in time, money, and frustration."

Thanks Capt. Matt!

"Thanks for following up with me. I ended up buying a Manitou 25 SHP with a 250 Merc. Got the “boat show” price minus $2000.00 per your secret weapon. Getting it delivered on the 19th. Can’t wait!"

First-Time Boat Owner


"I ordered a Cobalt R4. I got an additional 2% of MSRP after subscribing to your service. I'm expecting delivery by the end of April unless there is a supply chain breakdown. I would love to hear your thoughts on the new R4. I almost bought a Regal LS4 back in December but ultimately opted for the Cobalt with the side entrance versus center aisle with the Regal for ease of ingress/egress. I enjoy your YouTube channel and look forward to your feedback."

I will be purchasing the best pontoon captain on the lake nextl!

"I finally received my new pontoon. If you remember, I walked away from the Qwest Pontoon that I messaged you about during your live chat. I used your negotiating procedures and got a great deal on a 2022 Godfrey SW 1680 FX. Thank you for your help. I will be purchasing the best pontoon captain on the lake next."
