Information For Boat And Yacht Buyers

We enjoy helping buyers to find the boat that is just right for them. We can access the listings of all San Diego area yacht brokers, and indeed, can access listings of brokers throughout the world. We talk with you about what kind of boat that is right for you. We work with you on the search and then schedule a time to view the boats that have caught your attention. Since we have a good relationship with other brokers, many times we can gain insights into a particular listing that you wouldn’t be able to achieve on your own. Once you have found the right boat, we prepare the offer and present it to the seller’s agent. We continue to represent you as negotiations move forward. And once an agreement has been reached, our efforts on your behalf continue as we coordinate the surveys, and provide you resources for funding, insurance or finding a slip. Full service and serving your interests. That is how we see our responsibility to you.
