Yacht Finders International. . .
The Yacht Brokerage with a Difference!

It is a pleasure to share what sets us apart from most other yacht brokerages and boat builders.

While it seems obvious to suggest that boat ownership should be a series of pleasurable experiences, our years as boaters and brokers are littered with evidence that this is not always the case.  At Yacht Finders International, our desire to partner with you is based on a bedrock policy of truly putting the customer first.

We have built a strong returning client base and welcome new clients who are looking for a knowledgeable, honest and dependable yacht broker.

It is also our policy simply not to list a bad boat. If we become aware of any problems subsequent to listing a boat, we immediately ask the seller to repair the problem or we cancel the listing.

One of the most common complaints from boat buyers is that their sales person had little or no time for them after the sale was closed. At Yacht Finders International, our policy is to remain in a relationship with our customers until they have a clear understanding of all systems on their new yacht. If necessary, we will recommend a skipper until the new skipper, (that’s you!), is comfortable in maneuvering his or her vessel.

We want your boating experience to rank among the happiest times of your life!
