Your Yacht


Buying a yacht is a definite lifestyle choice, and the purchase process should also be a part of that enjoyable experience

We will work with you to gain an understanding of what you want from your yacht. What style of yacht do you dream of. How it will be used, and what destinations do you have planned. How big a party would you like it to handle. Everything right down to the last detail can be looked at in order to find your yacht, the one that fulfills your wishes. With this information in hand, we have the ability to find the best yacht for you that meets your parameters in every way.





Our experience with a vast range of yachts allows us to help you to find a yacht that meets all of your needs. Not only exterior style and capabilities, but amenities and accomodations perfectly suited for your planned cruises.

Whether your wishes are for solitude, family gatherings, large groups of friends, or any combination thereof, we can provide you with choices and options that make sure your yacht does not fall short of your wishes in how you wish to use it.





Once you find your yacht we will work with you to ensure every detail of the deal is handled professionally and accurately.

We can help you prepare an offer, carry out any further negotiations on your behalf, coordinate inspections and surveys as needed, and represent you all the way through to a smooth closing. All you need to do is start thinking of what you want to do first with your new yacht.

Azimut 85

first time buyers


Our work for a couple in choosing their first yacht involved presenting multiple craft for consideration and helping with final choice based upon very specific criteria and desires.

Many hours of conversation and answering questions covered everything from stateroom layout and safety features, very important due to the wishes of the couple involved to spend time with their children onboard. Final decision on the yacht to be acquired came down to such precise details as the structure of the gates to the swim platform steps and the availability of direct access between the master stateroom and the children's cabins.

As well as assisting in the inspection and the provision of detailed survey and trial services for the chosen yacht, we assisted in the formation of an LLC for the ownership of the yacht.

Sunseeker 52

new yacht build


A client looking to commission a new Sunseeker came to us for assistance.

We coordinated every facet of the project, between the client and the builder, to ensure the yacht was equipped and finished to exacting specifications. Every detail from propulsion and electrical equipment, through to wood flooring type and materials for soft furnishings was incorporated in the finished vessel and the yacht was delivered to the client in the U.S. on schedule.

Sunseeker 58

A gentleman approached me in a coffee shop, because he noticed I was reading a yachting magazine, and confessed his dream boat for his family was a Sunseeker Manhattan.

The conversations progressed over several weeks to where we were dispatched to find his family their boat. After viewing several examples we finally pinned down a Manhattan 58 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The client flew down to view the yacht, and fell in love. Our task list was then extensive. We negotiated the price, took her for sea trials, arranged a survey, then arranged shipping of the yacht to Stillwater, Minnesota via truck. Quite the adventure.

Once there, we contracted out work at the clients request which included new carpet, new Plasteak decking, and several improvements to interior decorations.
