As a leading Santa Barbara Yacht Sales Broker, we can help you enjoy power boating or sailing in Santa Barbara. We provide an excellent choice of both Classic and Modern Yachts. In addition to yachts in Santa Barbara, we have been helping boaters to find yachts of their choice from San Diego to Seattle. Bob Craven, the owner and Yacht Broker, has been involved in boating for over 55 years. His grandfather introduced him to sailing during the construction of a Tahiti Ketch between 1948 and 1951. The ketch was built, launched, and sailed single handedly between Connecticut and Florida for many years. Although that boat is no longer with us, the memories and experiences began a lifelong love of boats and yachting.

Bob is currently the owner of a Pacific Seacraft Sailboat and in the process of restoring a Classic 1931 Matthews Standard Cruiser (repowered with a 2007 Cummins Diesel).

Bob has been selling yachts in Santa Barbara for several years and has developed a good understanding of the type of yacht that is safe, pleasurable and practical for the Santa Barbara Channel and the Channel Islands. A 40-year interest in competitive sailing and being the helmsman on an Alerion Express 28, has led Bob to a keen eye for the next class to be on top or fitting out a yacht to race.

Our key to satisfying CUSTOMERS, however, is to determine what yacht THEY want, what yacht meets THEIR needs, and what yacht meets THEIR budget. Our goal is to have satisfied customers who come back to us for all their needs in boating.

The affiliated company RAC Yacht Management is available to make sure that the boat you bought will bring you great satisfaction during its use and the highest resale price when you are ready to move on to the next adventure. We have programs that will allow a very hand off ownership. All routine maintenance, cleaning, electronic up-grades, cosmetic upgrades or fueling and provisioning can be taken care of in the Santa Barbara Harbor Marina at competitive prices.

Please call us if you want to discuss boating in Santa Barbara.

After forty years of ownership, David Crosby has decided that it is time for this magnificent sailboat to become part of someone else's life. Many of David's songs have been created on board this spiritual platform. Mayan has been exceptionally well cared for by David. One could sail away tomorrow with inspiration guaranteed. It was very extensively rebuilt (>$600k) in 2005 by Wayne Ettel in Wilmington, CA. The details of the rebuild were featured in WoodenBoat magazine #187/66. This yacht is a CLASSIC WOODEN SAILBOAT in look, in design, and in performance. The boat is a very powerful design that takes the weather very well. The cabin layout is very traditional but easily sleeps eight in three staterooms plus a large saloon double berth. The boat has been continuously upgraded since 2005 with the addition of new electronics and continuous maintenance by paid hands.
