  • 2016

    Photo above is the Yacht Basin Co where our office is located. Brokerage boats selling prices have stabilized.

    Depreciation of boats is a fact. Avoid the falling value by being accurate and "show" ready reducing the time it takes to sell... There is a price at which your boat will sell within 30 days. Most of us would not accept that low "quick sale" price but between that number and the last few comps selling price is a sweet spot that should be your target. Hanging on for years with a unrealistic asking price is a very expensive choice. The values tick down, the equipment gets older, the boat requires upkeep and service and it all adds up.

    The depreciation in 2008-2009 was 25% on the quality boats and more where supplys were high. The depreciation since then is more in the "normal" range particularly on late model boats less than 5 years old.

    Price it very close to the real value

  • Boats are like horses Yellow lab at the beach

    You can't expect one boat to do it all. Like horses (one for hunting, one for the fences, 6 for polo...) you need several boats.

    Our MJM34 is perfect for our cruising style. Our Jarvis Newman works for the river cruises from the house. Then the J-88 for fun races and day sails. When the dog wants a beach trip we take the dory.

    Established in 1937, The Yacht Basin Company is the oldest privately owned marina in Annapolis. Located in the heart of Maryland's state capitol, the Yacht Basin offers a large, modern facility. Clean, bright bath houses (remodeled 2017) and a new laundry room, along with WiFi access, are just a few of the conveniences awaiting our guests.

    Our accommodations include over 100 fixed slips and three deep water face docks that routinely welcome vessels up to 240 feet. Five high speed pumps deliver GULF fuels year 'round, plus volume discounts.

    With easy navigation from the Chesapeake Bay, transient business is brisk at "The Basin". Daily, weekly and monthly stays should be reserved in advance. Sorry, the annual slip holder wait list averages several years.

    Historic Annapolis, Maryland's state capital, is just steps past the Marriott hotel on the marina's north side. All around are 18th century homes and narrow streets with a wide variety of shopping and eating establishments. Tour schedules to all sorts of exhibits, including public and private buildings are available. A casual stroll south over the Spa Creek draw bridge is the Maritime Republic of Eastport…a sailor's paradise.

    The Yacht Basin's experienced management and friendly dock hands are happy to provide information on local events and activities. if you have any questions, please contact us at 410-263-3544.

  • Supply & Demand Used Boat Supply is Weak

     2007-2012 new boat sales were very weak. As a result the selection of the more popular models is low and values have stabilized. Boat values across the board are slightly higher than they were just 3 years ago. Quality 50' boats are selling new for around $1.8M+. That maks a 8 year old boat at $795,000. look pretty sweet . 

    Brokerage firms are competing for listing.

    We handle power & sail, downeast & trawlers since 1981. Our average boat is 48 feet but represent boats 25-80' with a handful of sales/listings up to 125' over the years.

    "Yacht Brokerage Service above and beyond your expectations."

    Greetings. I have been selling boats since 1977 and self employed since 1981. Our business as it now exists was established in Annapolis in 1991. Some very radical business swings over the years. My yacht brokerage education over those years is worth billions (OK thousands) I am very lucky to have attracted the best brokers I have ever met. Our squad is dedicated, motivated and focused on their clients ultimate goals. As time goes on we keep tweeking our business model and making it better.

    We are very pleased that our listings and sales keep refreshing following the market spikes and valleys.

    Time away from business I enjoy sailing my J-88 Hornet, cruising the Chester in our 32' Jarvis Newman & MJM34Z Guidon and cycling. My wife of 35 years and I live on Queenstown Creek off the Chester River.

    The yacht brokerage business is very exciting. The challenges and opportunities of the last 9 years have changed the market significantly.

    Please contact me anytime if I can be of service.
