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.
August 17, 2022 MARKET UPDATE:
I’ve had a surge of clients making attempting to make offers this week, only to find there are accepted offers plus several back up offers only days after listings first appear in Yachtworld.com. I’m sure you, like me, figure this overheated market has to cool off some time, but we’re just not seeing it. 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. The two most important traits now are diligence and patience while searching for your best boat options.
With the US dollar near par with the euro and strong against the pound, European purchases are more attractive than ever, as long as you’re happy starting your cruise from there. It does not make financial sense to purchase in Europe with the plan of shipping or having a yacht delivered to North America.
I am ready and keen to help you find your dream cruising boat.
