This Yacht Is Sold, But We Can Find You Another One, Even If It Is Not One We Are Selling 

Many yacht buyers don’t realize that they have the option to have a Broker help them with the yacht buying process, even if it’s not the Broker’s listing.  Over our last decade and a half in this business, we have helped hundreds of buyer’s find a yacht that is right for them whether it was in our inventory or in another country.

It is free to you, the buyer - our commission is paid by the seller.  

You can rely on our knowledge and experience to:

  • Find a yacht that matches your needs.

  • Negotiate, structure, and document the deal, using California Yacht Broker’s Association forms and our escrow service.

  • Work with your banker or suggest one we can work with.

  • Help perform sea-trials.

  • Arrange surveys and haul-out.

  • Assist with the transfer of ownership.

  • Arrange for shipment of the yacht.


Why try to learn a skill to acquire a yacht that we have devoted our whole careers to?

Here is how it works:

  1. We discuss with you your preferences, proposed use, and limiting factors to help narrow down what yacht might work for you.

  2. When we find a boat that meets your needs, we contact the Broker and arrange a showing of the yacht for you.

  3. If the yacht looks like it’s going to meet your needs, we use our California Yacht Broker’s Association offer form to present the offer to the selling Broker.

  4. We meet you wherever the yacht is to perform the sea-trial and make sure the yacht’s performance meets your needs.

  5. We line up surveys and haul-out, and then advise you on the results.

  6. Finally, we coordinate the closing, documentation transfer, and shipping of the yacht.


There are guidelines for a yacht buyer to follow to assure the most effective and successful transaction can happen:

  • Because the process of helping a client acquire a yacht can be time and resource intensive for us, your prospective yacht should be priced at $150,000 and above.

  • It is important that you do not contact the listing agent or seller’s broker directly.  It is our job to initiate contact with the other Broker.

  • The yacht buyer should be expecting to make a purchase within the next 60 days or so.


Remember that boating is a fun, leisure activity and acquiring the yacht should be too.  Let us handle the mechanics of buying your yacht and you just enjoy the process!
