Marine Center. After a successful career running their own business in Washington State

In November 2007 we opened our branch office La Paz Yachts at Marina de la Paz. Manager Mike
Rickman has been boating for 36 years and has extensive sales experience. Shelly Rothery Ward
sold boats in San Diego for 14 years before going cruising in 2004. She joined our sales team
in 2008. Cindy Espinoza, the office manager, is a bilingual graduate from the University of Guadalajara.

Home to some of the best cruising and fishing grounds in
Our clients have come from all over the world. Like the staff in Mazatlan, La Paz,
Puerto Vallarta, and San Carlos most of our clients are from the US or Canada with
buyers now coming Europe, Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
We understand that coming to
Mexico to see a boat represents a bigger commitment than walking down to your local marina to
look around. We take pride in our approach to “tell it like it is." We do our very best
before you get here to paint an accurate picture of the vessel in its current condition.
We will work diligently with you on finding the ideal vessel for your cruising needs and budget.
We endeavor to help make your trip to the Pearl of the Pacific worthwhile!
When you come to visit us, we will be there to greet you. We’ve arranged
corporate rates at hotels within easy walking distance to the marinas and will reserve your
accommodations. A list of local surveyors will be provided for you to choose from. We are with
you through your initial inspection, the sea trial, survey and haulout. We will walk you through
the entire process. We are your liaison for everything. We can even recommend
some “must see and do” places while you are visiting!
So now is the time. Your boat is waiting for you. See you in paradise!
