Welcome to Lawson Yachts

Lawson Yachts LLC image Located in Hingham, Massachusetts, half an hour southeast of Boston, Lawson Yachts has been in business since 1982. Yacht brokerage is our sole focus, and we sell both sail and power boats, specializing in high quality, traditional cruising sailboats. Broker John Procter, a Certified Professional Yacht Broker (see sidebar), has over 30 years of experience in yacht sales and brokerage. John is a seasoned sailor and boat owner with a broad knowledge of yacht designs and market conditions.

As long-time members of the Yacht Brokers Association of America we are active participants in the organization and have served on the board, including John's two terms as President. We take very seriously the high ethical standards and practices that YBAA promotes in the yacht brokerage business and put them to use on a daily basis. We believe that conducting ourselves in an honest, straightforward manner, representing both buyers and sellers fairly, and paying close attention to detail as we oversee purchases from offer to closing are the only ways to do business. Our hundreds of loyal clients seem to agree.

Let us know what you are looking for and, if we don't have it ourselves, we will find it for you using our extensive contacts in the yacht brokerage industry and our computerized MLS system. We are always looking for new listings on good quality yachts, so if you have a quality sailboat, powerboat, trawler, or motoryacht for sale, we would welcome the opportunity to discuss a marketing plan with you.

Thank you for visiting our site. We look forward to assisting you in buying your next boat or selling your current one!

40' Tartan 40
1985 US$ 105,000

The Sparkman & Stephens-designed Tartan 40 has a rare combination of superlative assets.  She was well built, sails beautifully, has a large and comfortable cockpit, a great and well-finished teak interior, and is at home weekending, coastal cruising, racing, or crossing oceans.  72 were built from 1984-1989.

ARIEL is hull #15. Her current owner writes of her: "She has cruised from the Caribbean and the Canadian Maritimes.  She has served her present owner well as a coastal cruiser, adventuring into over 100 ports throughout New England.  ARIEL also has a stellar racing record, winning the 2013 Mass Bay Championship and finishing first many times including 1st in Class (25 Boats) and 4th Overall (120 boats) in the Great Chase Race of Hull Yacht Club.  ARIEL rides fine in 30-40 knots and also glides along nicely in light air. 

You will not find a better boat to start your own adventures.  ARIEL always turns heads.  She is seaworthy and is well maintained."

ARIEL is, indeed, well-maintained. She has just been launched for the season and may be easily inspected.  She shows beautifully.
