Welcome to Ensign International Yacht Brokerage
Ensign Yachts is a boat and yacht brokerage located in San Diego handling sales of power and sailing vessels. We at Ensign Yachts have been boat buyers, boat sellers, captains, cruisers, yacht club members, and have been in yacht management & maintenance. We have sailed the Pacific Coast, Mexico, Hawaii, the Mediterranean and the English Channel. Our staff is very familiar with West Coast inventories, but have also sold boats from Australia to Japan and the Pacific Northwest to Mexico. Several of our staff are multilingual, speaking Spanish, French and German as well as English.
Our backgrounds give us the knowledge and experience to assist a buyer in finding the right boat to fit their personal needs, whether it is to find freedom or that comfortable condo on the water. We are also here to assist a seller in moving on to their next objective whether it is to a different boat or a new venture. We have been in YOUR shoes; we have experienced the process from YOUR view. At Ensign, we never lose sight of this and we try to provide you all the necessary information so YOU can make informed decisions. We just received an email from a buyer after a sea trial that said, “Everyone commented on how gracious and knowledgeable you both were.”
Our office is on Harbor Island in San Diego Bay, one block from the airport. If you are arriving by air, let us know and we will pick you up. We are licensed and bonded.
Please accept our invitation to stop by and meet our staff. We love helping people achieve their dreams.
With over a 5000 mile range and a fleet of smaller boats, your destinations are unlimited. Are you a Buyer who is looking for something different, perhaps wishing you could follow in the footsteps of Cousteau or maybe just a little of a Dirk Pitt adventure. Well, you can with Beauport!

Beauport was built in 1960 for the Canadian Coast Guard in Lauzon Quebec as a sounding vessel and bouy tender. She was designed and constructed to withstand light ice-breaking duty.
In 1993 the new US owner began the conversion to a luxury yacht. A number of cabins were removed to make way for a main salon, guest cabins and a large master suite. In 1998 Beauport underwent a 6 month mechanical refit of all engines and operating systems in Jacksonville, Florida. Equipment added in 1998 included a 150kw Isuzu generator, Hynautics stabilizers, bow thruster and watermaker. In 2000, 2 new John Deer 115KW generators and a massive 8 ton hydraulic deck crane were installed. The current owner has continued upgrading the vessel since he purchased it in 2004.
