Honesty, Integrity, Customer Satisfaction Always!
Welcome to W S Yacht Brokers!
We are here to make sure your experience is the best possible journey with us, whether purchasing or selling your yacht. We are knowledgeable with both power and sail. With over 40 years of combined experience in the marine industry, our experience ranges from listing brokers to buyer's agents, long distance yacht deliveries, professional megayacht crew, marine electrical, building yachts and commercial vessels, re-fitting yachts, and even to boatyard/new build management.
With this vast array of experience, we can better serve our clients, and guide them when it comes to vessel selection (power and sail) that works best for them and their specific needs. With our vast technical background, we can answer most questions, and can see potential problems when viewing vessels as a buyer's agent.
Additionally, we work as a project management team when owners enter into a major refit of their vessel, working between the yard and owner to achieve a balance of on time completion, staying within budget, and risk mitigation upfront.
We can act as owner's representatives on new builds of any size, to ensure that any/all class specifications are being met, as well as build quality, project timeliness, and budgets are being met. We also recommend hiring a qualified surveyor to participate in this type of endeavor. The build yard will have the class society's surveyors on hand too, to attend to class rules of the build. Some of the more notable one's being Bureau Veritas, and Lloyds of London. The American Boat and Yacht Council (ABYC), set a lot of the standards in the US for smaller vessels.
Let us help you find your next yacht, move your current yacht to caring new owners, or manage a project for you.
We are here for our clients as fellow lovers of the water!

85' Hatteras 85' Cockpit Motor Yacht
OWN A PIECE OF HISTORY! THIS HATTERAS, NOW " SECTION 37", WAS ORIGINALLY BUILT FOR THE FABERGE COMPANY OF NEW YORK, AND THE INTERIOR SHOWS THE OPULENCE OF THAT TIME PERIOD!! GREAT PRICE ON THIS WELL BUILT, STABILIZED MOTORYACHT!
This 1986 85' Hatteras, is a must see!!! This yacht is a factory extended vessel, originally built at 77'. The aft cockpit and custom swim platform are an easy entry point to the vessel, with additional boarding opportunities up forward next to the pilothouse via a ladder, or a passerelle if one so desires. The custom swim platform was added by the current owner, and has stainless steel staples, multiple cleats, and a roller in the center to allow the deployment of a stern anchor.
The transom has an outward opening transom door, with an opening caprail portion to allow entry into the cockpit. Once in the cockpit, there are ample rodholders for fishing rods, deck brushes, and boat hooks. In the deck is a large hatch which allows access to stern thruster etc, as well as storage. There is an aft helm station, with gear, throttle, and thruster controls, to allow manuvering from the cockpit when backing in.
Through the salon door, and up the stairs, you enter into a huge salon that shows the decor from bygone era, with lots of whites and creams, gold, and hints of pink from hidden access lighting. There is a dancefloor under the current carpet, that holds hundreds of LED lights, which correspond to the LED lights in the ceiling. This dance floor, and the rotating entertainment system (yes, there is a cassette player, bring your mix tapes) will ensure that there is always something to dance about. There is a piano bar with a keyboard bartop, and an actual keyboard behind for the aspiring musician, or hired entertainer for the dinner party you're throwing. Original Faberge artwork still adorns the salon.
From the salon, you can either go down a set of stairs to the guest accommodation, or forward to the galley and crew mess. Yes, this vessel has three staterooms, and two crew quarter cabins for three crew (captain and two). The crew quarters are up forward, and can easily double as extra guest quarters with an owner operated setup, in essence making the vessel a 5 stateroom yacht. The galley is nicely equipped, so that even a professional chef would have enough room to prepare food for a function if need be. The large double door/side by side stainless fridge/freezer is brand new, installed in 2015. There have only ever been a few bottles of condiments in the fridge door, and those migrated over from the old fridge!! There is a four plate electric stove, with full size oven below. There are two eye level microwave ovens, one directly over the stove top, and another just next to it. There is a double sink, dishwasher, and trash compactor to make life easy in this galley. There is a crew mess area to the stbd side of the galley, and has enough seating for about six people.
Forward of the galley, is the pilothouse, with everything needed to run this vessel. This vessel is equipped with bow and stern thrusters, which can be run from all three stations. The pilothouse also has two screens for the closed circuit tv cameras in the engine room, to help you monitor engine room status underway. VHF, autopilot, SSB, radar, rudder angle indicator, hailer, intercom system (throughout vessel), engine gauges, depth and speed gauges, compass, Naiad Stabilizer controls, emergency engine shutoffs, main electrical panels AC/DC, spot/search lights, watermaker controls (dual), tank tender (fluid measurement system), can all be found here. Although older, all electronics work, and provide a capable navigation system. It would be the new owner's prerogative to upgrade to new.
From the pilothouse, one can exit port or stbd pilothouse doors, to access the foredeck and the ground tackle. Down the staircase forward of the pilothouse, one drops into the crew quarter area, where you will find new washer and dryer (full size units), and undercounter top of the line Subzero dual drawer style fridge and freezers for additional food storage for those extended trios being on anchor in far flung regions. There is also a good size wine cooler under the counter top. All of these appliances are new.
From the salon, down the portside stairs, and you are in the guest accommodation. There is a central day/shared head/shower for the portside double twin stateroom, the queen size VIP to stbd has an ensuite head and shower, and the master stateroom is foward with ensuite head and shower. all staterooms are spacious, with plenty of storage and cedar lined large closets. The master stateroom, is another highlight of the vessel, with original artwork, a forward bulkhead (headboard) with the Manhattan skyline as a backdrop when switched on, lots of mirrors, heaps of closet space, and soft accent lighting. It is quite something to behold! There is a total of 4 heads in the vessel.
Back to the aft cockpit, and the stairs up to the salon lift, and the entrance to the lazarette and engine room is revealed. The MTU 6V-396 engines push the vessel to a cruising speed of 17kts, and top speed of 22kts. Two 23kW Westerbeke gensets provide ample AC power at any time. All Air conditioning handlers, watermaker pumps and membranes etc are found in the engine room. The boat has been professionally maintained with regular fluid changes etc, and has been kept in excellent running condition. The engine and lazarette provide ample work spaces too. Loads of onboard spares.
Section 37 needs the attentions of a new owner, and will need some cosmetic work. Come see her now and make an offer!
