Looking to Sell Your Boat?

Making the decision to sell your boat is not always easy and selecting the right company to handle the sale of your boat is very important.

You want to know that the brokerage house and the broker you chose is respected in the industry, has a proven record of success and is committed to your interests.

S&J Yachts is very well respected within the industry. We are a member of the Yacht Brokers Association of America (YBAA) and adhere to a strict code of ethics. We are bonded and insured and one of the largest yacht brokerages on the East Coast.

S&J Yachts has 12 full-time professional yacht brokers as well as a dedicated settlement specialist – all here to ensure that you are well served. We have extensive industry knowledge and a proven record of success. Our brokers have more than 220 years of experience in all aspects of the business and are focused on getting your boat sold as quickly as possible and at the best possible price.

We start with an analysis of the market as it relates to your boat. We work with you to decide on the asking price and analyze the competition in an effort to make sure that the price is competitive. A price that ensures that a buyer needs to consider your boat.

We go through your boat in detail and make recommendations that will have your boat ready to show. Good pictures of your boat are taken, the details of equipment are gathered and a strong effective selling listing is prepared for your approval.

Looking to Buy a Boat?

Finding your boat, one that fits your needs and your dream is not a simple process. There are many things to consider and it all starts with your dream. Are you planning to weekend sail with your family, or possibly go to the islands or sail the oceans? The boat and equipment that you will need for one dream may not be the right one for another.

We will use all of our expertise to ensure that the boat you buy is the boat that you need – and the one that you want! After all, it’s a love affair that brings you to the sea and to the boat you sail her upon.

We search the market both domestic and offshore, using our many contacts in the U.S. and in Europe, to ensure we find the best possible boats for you to consider. We will then help you to narrow down the options until the right boat is found. We gather all available information about that boat, its condition and history, and make all efforts to ensure the boat is what it is represented to be. We then assess the sold-boat history and negotiate the very best price.

We are there with you for the survey. If there are survey issues we will negotiate them for you. We help you find financing, insurance and handle all the necessary closing paperwork including bills of sale, evidence of clear title, transfer of title, taxes, state registration, U.S. Coast Guard documentation or offshore registration. If you need training aboard your new boat we can arrange that as well. Our extensive knowledge and experience are all put to use on your behalf at no cost to you. We make it a simple and enjoyable process!

MOST OF ALL – We have some of the most experienced and professional yacht brokers in the industry, with more than 220 years of experience handling all aspects of finding and purchasing and selling yachts. All are dedicated to being there after the sale to help a new owner on with their dream – making many friends along the way.

This is the business that we have all chosen. This is our passion and we are committed to using all of our knowledge and resources to best serve you.
