Welcome to Advantage Yacht Sales
Advantage Yacht Sales is the New England dealer for Hunter sailboats and cruising yachts, Gemini Catamarans, Fountaine Pajot catamarans, LaserPerformance daysailors, Precision sailboats, and AB Inflatables RIBs from our waterfront locations in Newburyport, MA and Boston, MA. AYS also represents a broad range of used sailboats, catamarans, and powerboats that represent great values.
Advantage Yacht Sales is a Marine Industry "Five Star" Certified Dealer, having proven our commitment to provide excellent customer service. We follow specific criteria and processes to consistently provide a professional level of sales and service to every customer.
Beginning in 2011 and continuing today, we have been selected to the Boating Industry “Top 100 Dealers”, our industry’s most prestigious award. Out of the thousands of boat dealers in North America, the Top 100 recognizes dealerships that are unsurpassed in business operations, professionalism, marketing, customer service, employee training, and more. AYS is the only sailboat dealer on the list.
In 2014, Advantage was recognized by Marlow-Hunter as the top selling dealer in the world, and in the top 3 in customer service. This follows continued recognition since 2008 as a consistent top 10 dealer in both sales and service.
Starting in 2013 Advantage added catamarans to their offering, and quickly became New England’s largest catamaran dealer. We know the details of evaluating, handling and maintaining a catamaran.
In addition to selling both new and used boats, AYS has partnerships with charter and fractional programs that can provide income opportunities to boat owners, or charter and membership sailing to those who are not yet ready to own a boat themselves.
We are all boaters ourselves, and thoroughly enjoy our time on the water with family and friends. However, this is not a hobby for us, nor is it simply an excuse to go sailing. We are professionals dedicated to providing products and services that are a great value and helping our customers enjoy their best time on the water.
Whether you are looking to enjoy a sailing cruise around Massachusetts Bay, a power vessel vacation in Cape Cod Bay, a daysail in Boston Harbor, or fishing along the New England seacoast, Advantage Yacht Sales is your partner in your quest to find the right boat. Dedicated to applying our passion, knowledge, and professionalism...
to your advantage.

31' Hunter 31
Look what just rolled into our yard! A brand new model from Hunter- the new 31. We jumped on board and were immediately impressed with the huge cockpit and a fantastic new swing pedestal- It swings out of the way to easily pass through the cockpit and also lets you steer from either side rail. Down below she is wide open and looks (and is) much bigger than any other 31' boat. As you can see we ordered her in "Shark Grey" which is a great unique look. Come see for yourself!
We have put her on introductory special price with the caveat that she appears at the Newport Boat Show. She is in the water. Come sail her away while you still have more than half the season to enjoy her!
The Marlow-Hunter 31 is the latest off-shore cruising model sailboat to follow the pedigree of the 40 and 37 which were also introduced by Marlow-Hunter in the last two years.
The innovation leader has done it again. Hunter brought you Walk-Through Transoms, the Traveler Arch and the B&R Easy Sail Rig. Now the new Marlow-Hunter team has unleashed a barrage of Quality upgrades-MHQ 2.0. Hunter is the first and only production sailboat manufacturer to eliminate all balsa and plywood from hulls and decks and go to All Synthetic Construction. The boats will be lighter and stronger thanks to Nida-Core honeycomb synthetic coring in hulls and decks and Kevlar reinforced hulls from bow to keel to chainplates. The Vinyl-Ester resins have been upgraded as well making the surface below the gel-coat three times stronger, virtually eliminating cracking, crazing or blistering. The new gel coat upgrade to HK Gel Coat will provide a harder, smoother surface and allows for more fade-resistant colors. Hunter will now offer an array of gel coat color hulls at an extremely affordable price.
The Hunter 31 has been an attention grabber. She carries the sleek new Hunter styling and customers are impressed with the size of the boat- "enormous interior", "huge cockpit". Indeed her waterline length at 29'8" is longer, and her beam at 11'10" is wider than her famous big sister the Hunter 33. One of her best features is the spacious cockpit that will deliver a feel more like that of a larger boat. Performance will also be one of her strong features with a large sail plan and a Glenn Henderson hull design plus hard chine aft below the waterline which has become a signature for Marlow-Hunter sailboats.
Below her quality fit and finish is hand crafted using real teak furniture and floors, Corian countertops, ball bearing drawer hardware and name brand appliances and equipment. The construction of the hull and deck utilizes Vinyl Ester resins and gel-coats, continuous reinforcement fibers, Kevlar and state of the art Nida-coring for structural integrity for ours and our customer's, peace of mind.
She is equipped with In-Mast Furling, Vertical Battens, Lewmar Swing Pedestal, Shade Package, Engine FIre Supression System, Bimini with installation, Teak package (cockpit table inlay), Colored Hull (gelcoat), Two-tone non skid, 29 hp Engine upgrade, Teak package (fold down transom), Refrigeration, VHF Radio, and more.
