Since 1976 I have professionally consulted with over 10,000 people seeking cruising boats. My experience in the marine industry is unique; 391,000 miles and 48 years worldwide ocean sailing experience plus boatbuilding, surveying and previously owning a yacht brokerage. I’ve also owned and maintained four ocean cruising boats.
April 2023 MARKET UPDATE:
We’re actually seeing some new listing coming to market now in early April, so that quality offshore-capable cruising boats aren’t impossible, just challenging to find.
2022 saw the most buyers ever seriously looking for offshore-ready ocean cruising boats. Prices for quality used boats increased, and full price and above full price offers became common. Many boats are selling even before they are officially listed and posted on yachtworld.com. However, I have had patient clients worldwide finding their dream boats and setting sail – it’s just that sometimes the boats they purchase are not necessarily in their first-choice locations. I am ready and keen to help you find your dream cruising boat.
