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.
July 2023 MARKET UPDATE:
Several of my clients have recently asked if I see prices and demand easing because of interest rates rising, worries of inflation and drop in stock prices. If anything, these factors appear to be pushing potential offshore boat purchasers to purchase sooner, not later. Kind of surprising, but that is what I am hearing. I’ll get a much better idea after attending the October Annapolis Sailboat Show where I’ll be presenting my 175th Offshore Cruising Seminar Oct. 14th.
I have some clients planning on waiting for current overheated prices on offshore-capable cruising boats to peak, however, based on demographics and the recent election results and upcoming Nov. election, I see prices further increasing and not receding for the foreseeable future.
I am ready and keen to help you find your dream cruising boat.
