Originally started as a boat charter company called Sunset Kidd, where winters required extra income. As boat captains, we quickly found out that during all of our years of charters, yacht deliveries and just plain growing up in the Southern California boating community, we had acquired an extensive knowledge of numerous boats on a first hand experienced level.
We know how a boat handles the rough Pt. Conception, the Channel Islands or the Baja Coast.
We know the problems that could or will happen. We know it because we've experienced it! We do not consider ourselves sales people, just boat captains that love to share our knowledge of the sea and our passion for boating.
Call us and get real answers to your questions.
Santa Barbara is a unique location to sell yacht. With only 1,000 slips in Santa Barbara, we've discovered that client service is the key to longevity.
Our policy is to be of service to the client... way after the boat deal is done!
Even five years afterwards, we want to be your source of information... regarding everything about your boat (FOR NO FEE). If your off cruising and run into problems, call us. Our years of yacht deliveries and charters means that we usually can help you jury-rig the boat while out to sea. If a fix can't be arranged with what supplies are on-board - then we'll help arrange to get the parts to you... Where ever you are on this planet Earth! This is our pledge, and this is why we are still in business 21 years later. Established 1987 - same owner!
36' Marine Trader Sundeck
Looking for a MotorYacht with all the right features? An impeccably maintained motoryacht. a great liveaboard... or heck go traveling... as these boats can handle some truly rough weather (first hand knowledge as a gale blew down the Oregon coast). A package is offered with a 35 ft. Santa Barbara Slip @ $163,000(boat $98k & Slip $65k). Now that is a Santa Barbara Getaway/ Condo. Liveaboard permits are available. However... NOTE, if purchasing the boat alone! it is MORE MONEY, If you don't want the slip, then the Asking price for boat is $108,000.
Captain Dennis has been a liveaboard upon his 36 Meridian motoryacht. This is the 3rd boat that I have lived on. This particular "Marine Trader" completes ALL ELEMENTS that a liveaboard person would want.... It's a "10" for all the features that makes living on boats simply better! Yet she is has not been used as a liveaboard! As she is used as a weekend getaway.
