Ardell Yacht & Ship Brokers
Ardell was incorporated in 1958 with sales offices and marina in Newport Beach, California. In 1962 owner Don Haskell recruited brokers Craig Cadwalader, Tom Corkett, Dennis Moran and Jim Elliott. All are still active full time brokers with the Company today.
In 1971 Ardell opened its Fort Lauderdale office and soon thereafter built a state of the art facility in the heart of “The Yachting Capital of the World”. Over the next 40 years many hundreds of yacht owners purchased and sold their boats with the help of Ardell’s veteran sales force based on both coasts of the U.S.
Yacht brokerage is the heart of our business. We provide advice to yacht owners on pricing and marketing to insure the earliest sale at market price. We assist yacht buyers in choosing quality vessels that really work for their individual and family requirements. Choosing the right boat, of course, is all important when it comes time to sell.
Over the years we have assisted our clients with new yacht purchases and custom build projects in Holland, Germany, Italy, Turkey as well as a number of shipyards in the U.S.A.
Our many years of experience together with our worldwide contacts and relationships with builders, shipyards, co-brokers and industry professionals are key to providing sound advice to our clients.
We begin the process of helping you purchase your yacht by getting to know you and your boating expectations. Once we learn your preferences as to size, style, cruising areas, type of use and budget, we then suggest a number of vessels to begin the selection of the most likely choices.
Now it’s time to board and tour the actual yachts. Once your selection is made we assist you with making the offer and carrying through with the final negotiation and closing.
We assist with crew selection, insurance, registration and offshore flagging. Call us to start the exciting process of selecting and purchasing a yacht that will bring you, your friends and family the best times of your lives.
With beautiful offices in both Fort Lauderdale, Florida and Newport Beach, California, Ardell looks forward to helping you with your yachting needs.
