Welcome to the Mariner Network’s sailing page. We have dedicated this page to sailors and our sailing staff. Here at the Mariner Network, we recognize that to properly represent you as a buyer or seller, it is important to know that there are three types of sailors: cruising sailors, racing sailors and those that enjoy both! In developing our brokerage company, we hired three individuals who are highly qualified to represent you and your vessel in all three arenas. Brian Dave and Keith cover the entire Southern Lake Michigan region. Dave specializes in racing vessels and Keith specializes in cruising vessels.Brian is very familiar with both! Please scroll down to view their biographies.
One of the keys to successfully selling a yacht is properly listing her. The Mariner Network implements a number of strategies and tools to professionally represent and market your vessel. Our greatest tools are professional photography, comprehensive text and the use of numerous sites throughout the internet including YachtWorld, Boats.com, Google base, Yahoo Classifieds and Lakeland Boating, not to mention our knowledgeable and heads up staff. Also, new this spring of 2007, we are introducing 360 degree tours and on water video.
Listing your sailboat will involve meeting with our listing agent on board so that we thoroughly understand what makes your sailboat special. This information will be recorded and properly described in your listing.
Once your yacht is listed, we will receive inquiries, set up appointments, negotiate with prospective buyers, help set up surveys, sea trials and ultimately complete the sale. This is what we do and we do it very well.
If you are interested in a free analysis of your sailboat and information with regard to selling it, please contact Dave Rearick at 219.510.4422 or Keith Logan at 219-898-3492 or Brian Adams at 414-788-0990.
Whether it’s your first boat, a world cruiser or your latest state of the art racing machine, buying a boat should be a great and fun experience. These days, with the help of the internet, you can search boats world wide, 24/7/365. Unfortunately, this creates quite a few issues. Sorting through these issues such as comparing the various boats, types, systems and specifications can be a handful, but it can also be a lot of fun with the help of an experienced yacht broker.
In the business of yacht sales, both new and used, it’s very common for yacht brokers to cooperate with each other. There are many occasions where a broker will have found the right boat for his customer but the boat is listed with another broker. Just like real estate, the brokers will cooperate to match the buyer with the right boat.
Developing a relationship with an experienced yacht broker is your best way to navigate through various options and questions. Our yacht brokers will help you develop criteria used to search for the vessel that meets your needs and desires. We will obtain detailed answers to pertinent questions, compare specifications, interpret equipment, set up and accompany you on viewings and help you prepare and structure your offer. In addition, our brokers will help you with financing, transportation and surveyors. We will also spend our time to teach you how to safely operate and handle your new vessel.
Our experienced personnel are great folks to use as counsel. Take a moment to give them a call and set up an appointment. Once you have spoken to either Dave, Brian or Keith, you will realize why we are truly "Leagues Beyond Ordinary"
