Buying Yachts in Mexico

Mariners Yacht & Ship Brokerage, Inc. image

One little known fact that is seldom thought of by buyers and those looking for various styles of yachts has been the hidden treasure chest of exceptional sailing yachts in Mexico. Specifically, San Carlos, Sonora is known by many as the marina for Arizona.. It is located on the Mexican mainland along the coast of the Sea of Cortez, 450 miles due south of Phoenix, Arizona. In addition to its natural beauty, the town “where the desert meets the sea” also has everything a boater needs – full service marinas, a large dry storage area, a chandlery, full service boat repair yards, boat maintenance services and multiple anchorages within 30 miles. It is a mere 70 miles across the Sea Cortez to Baja, California.

Mariners Yacht and Ship Brokerage Inc. is establishing a presence in this area. Having had many international sales, along with many years in the new and resale yacht business, we feel that we need to branch out further to find a better method of finding yachts other than the normal “ what ever is here” method. We have sold boats in San Carlos in the past, and have built an excellent relationship with a local resident marine consultant who is exceptionally knowledgeable in the ways of local marine industry, along with a high grade of experience in yachts and their function. The program we have worked out keys on the fact that all transactions are handled in the United States but coordinated locally, in Mexico, with our resident consultants. We are set up to guide you through each step of the purchase including inspection, sea trial, survey, coordinating boat work and repairs, transport, insurance, and all necessary paperwork for both sides of the border. And if you currently have a boat in Mexico that you would like us to sell for you, give us a call or send us an email – we’d be happy to evaluate your vessel to see if we can add your boat to our Yachtworld website to expand your reach to buyers world-wide, who recognize Mariners Yachts & Ship Brokerage, Inc. as a leader in international boat brokerage.

Mirador Esceìnico, San Carlos, Mexico
This scenic lookout, four miles from San Carlos, gives a peerless view over the Gulf of California, dramatic Tetakawi—a volcanic hill jutting out of the sea—and the secluded coves of Playa Piedras Pintas. Mirador is also a world-class vantage point for spotting wildlife, including dolphins, pelicans, and whales.
Planning: A good way to explore the Gulf of California (Sea of Cortes) is to rent a kayak or fishing boat in San Carlos. The best sailing and fishing weather occurs from November through May.
