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!

54' Pama Pilothouse MY (Stabilized!)
AFFORDABLE YACHTING ELEGANCE AND LUXURY!!
THIS STABLIZED 2004 PAMA 54 IS A PROVEN, LOW HOUR (1170hrs), PACIFIC NORTHWEST CRUISING MOTORYACHT. COMPLETE NEW EXHAUST SYSTEM IN 2017, OVER $40K HAS BEEN SPENT.
This well kept, captain run, professionally maintained 2004 Pama is a must see for a couple or family looking for a vessel that will take them up and down the West coast in comfort and safety. The hull is constructed using a solid fiberglass hull bottom, and then a synthetic coring starting above the waterline for reduced weight, which relates directly to performance with regards to speed and fuel consumption. The Pama's hull is regarded to be a very well constructed hull.
Boarding Caribbean Cruise from the dock to swim platform is very convenient and requires no effort to step up onto the vessel. Ascend the transom steps and you find youself on a teak covered, spacious aft deck, perfect for those sumptuous morning breakfasts, lazy lunches, or evening entertaining with your close friends and family. The aft deck table allows for seating for four on the settee, and add a few deck chairs to increase capacity. There is easy side deck access to the foredeck(bow), where one can have a glorious afternoon nap in the sun on the sunbed area, or just lounge with friends. There is also a stainless and teak staircase located on the starboard side of the aft deck, leading to the boat deck and flybridge above. The large stainless and glass sliding salon entry doors, make moving from the aft deck into the salon a breeze, especially with luggage etc.
Inside the salon, you find yourself in a very accommodating space, with seating for at least 8 people. There is a good size flat screen TV forward and slightly to starboard, which allows all to have a good view of the screen on movie night. The salon table folds in half for ease of movement, and opens to allow for plenty of serving space when entertaining or eating a meal. It is also lowered and raised by an electric motor system. The flow through the salon and up to the lower helm and galley area works very well, and there is an extremely good amount of natural light from the large salon windows which also have excellent coverings for privacy when needed. You have all entertainment equipment located in the salon for ease of use, and custom full surround sound speakers (cockpit/aft deck too) for that theater experience.
Once up the stairs, you find the galley to your right(starboard), and it is very well equipped and easy to use. Fridge and freezer are drawer style, and located under the countertop on the aft inboard side of the galley, thus allowing for a lot more counter space to prep all of your favorite dishes when entertaining. A stove top, oven/microwave oven, loads of counter space and dual stainless steel sink provide everthing you need to let your creative culinary juices flow! There is also a wine cooler aboard to make sure you have chilled wine on hand, and room left in your fridges for food! The galley is directly behind the lower helm, making it easy to provide drinks and food to anyone on watch during passage making, or for watch keepers to help themselves while the autopilot steers the vessel.
The lower helm provides full control of the vessel, and from a comfortable position too. New forward windows in 2015 give great visibility to the pilot, and is more comfortable in cooler cruising climates. Needless to say, closer to the galley too! From the lower helm, there is a curved staircase aft and to port, which allows the pilot and other crew quick access to the flybridge. From the flybridge, once again the pilot has full control of the vessel, and a commanding view of surroundings, especially when manouvering. There is a high quality canvas bimini top to protect from the sun in summer, and plenty of comfortable seating for guests to spend time with whoever is piloting the vessel. There is also a wet bar, fridge, icemaker and BBQ to entertain with ease from atop. The 12ft Rendova dinghy with 30hp 4s Honda is stored on the boat deck. This is launched and retrieved with 1000lb Nick Jackson hydraulic davit system with remote control. There is also a stainless slinding hatch to the aft and starboard side of the boat deck, which gives access to the stairs to the aft deck.
Head back down the stairs to the lower helm, and there is curved stairwell, that leads to the accommodation. Once down the stairs, you will find and large and well appointed master stateroom, with island large queen, and full en-suite head. There is ample storage for extended cruising. The VIP up forward (V Berth) is also an island queen, and has more than enough storage space for visiting guests, or family members. This too is en-suite with full head. The third stateroom has twin bunks, and is a great option for the younger members on the family, or visiting guest party. All staterooms have new TV's with sat TV and stereos. The entire vessel is heated by the Kabola diesel fired furnace, and has four separate zones.
Back out on the aft deck again, and the lazarette can be accessed from a hydraulic deck hatch. Once inside there is excellent access to the Northern Lights 12KW genset, with approximately 350hrs on it. The Kabola diesel furnace system is located here, and easily accessible for service work. Go through a water tight door, and you are into a very open, and well laid out engine room. The very low hour (1170) twin Yanmar 6CXM-GTE2 440hp (each) engines show well, and it is easy to see the level of maintenance. These engines are well know for their reliability, and push Caribbean Cruise along at a comfortable cruising speed of 12-15 knots, with a top end of 21 knots. These are also very fuel efficient engines, and at 1900rpm, you are burning about 6 gallons per engine, per hour. The vessel also has Nibral 4 blade High Skew(high performance) props, with new shafts in 2012. Additional features include stabilizers and a Side Power bow thruster system. All batteries were replaced in 2014 to include all start, house, and thruster batteries. There is also a Glendinning shower power cable retrieval system, so you don't have to coil up the cord each time you leave the dock.
All in all, Caribbean Cruise is ready to cruise, and do so in comfort and style. You will be hard pressed to find a yacht of this quality, with as many features as it has, at this price point. Call the listing broker now to make an appointment to view this fine yacht.
