Welcome to Yachtsource

Yachtsource image My name is Bob Sherman. Whether you are buying or selling, I want you to have a great boating experience. I would like to to earn your business as your Yacht Broker. This is not unlike a job interview, so here is my background:

I started in Yacht Sales in 1987. I was a top producer at several of the better San Diego brokerages for 14 years, learning from the best of the best. I obtained my Broker's license and started "YachtSource" in 2001. With over 25 years experience and hundreds of transactions to date, I have earned a good reputation in the industry. I sell boats all over the continent. Whether buying or selling, I can put this knowledge and experience to work for you!

A native San Diegan, I grew up in a sailing family, and sailing has been a passion my whole life. I started teaching at the age of 18, and became a USCG licensed Captain in 1982, at the age of 21. I hold a 100-ton Master's Certificate,and regularly use my license for corporate charter regattas. I am qualified to teach on sail or power boats. As a former Realtor with Coldwell Banker, I have enhanced training and skills that are parallel to the Yacht Brokerage industry. I am an avid scuba diver, and owned a 38 foot sailboat for six years. While I now sell more power boats than sail, sailing and sailboat racing remains my passion.

I am a member in good standing with the California Yacht Broker's Association, which has high ethical standards. I utilize the CYBA contracts in my transactions, which offer the best protection for my clients. I regularly attend CYBA legal seminars to keep current on the latest issues and concerns.

I will provide you with the highest level of service, before, during, and after the sale. I want to share my expertise, and assist you making sound, educated decisions. If you are looking for a yacht broker who is friendly, honest, hard working, knowledgable and enthusiastic, you need look no further. I encourage you to explore the additional links on my website, which you may find quite useful...especially to San Diego sailors and boaters!

2001 US$ 249,000

NOSTRA TANA is the one you have been waiting for. How many yacht owners flush out their diesel engine cooling systems with fresh water before going home? She is in truly immaculate condition from stem to stern...right down to her spotless engine room. She has a mere 285 hours on her mains and only 250 on the genset. 

Loaded with all the desirable options like no other LE I have ever seen, she offers an incredible value for the dollar. Her long list of options includes: bow AND stern thrusters, RIB inflatable with stainless electric davit, 3000 watt inverter, Extra batteries with upgraded management, full cockpit enclosure & extensive canvas package, underwater lighting, and Flat screen TV's & DVD in salon and both staterooms.  

Recent upgrades include fresh buff & wax, fresh bottom paint, icemaker, refrigerator, main engine engine service & new water pumps. Recent insurance-survey available with only a few recommendations....all completed. 

The "LIMITED EDITION" Maxum 4600 was an upgraded version of the popular Maxum 46. The interior is quite grand in comparison, with a stunning, high-gloss cherry finish, luxurious fabrics, and black granite Corian countertops.  The fit and finish is several steps above the standard model. You'll hardly believe it's the same boat!

Mechanical upgrades of the LE model include the larger 450HP Cummins diesels, providing a 20 knot cruise speed; dripless propeller-shaft seals, Airsep air-intake filtration, Mathers-Microcommander engine controls, and a larger, 12.5 KW genset. 

Outside, the LE features a fiberglass hardtop on the flybridge, complete with LED lighting. With the full enclosure by Murphy's Canvas and carpeting, it provides an extra, protected "room" of living space, with separate heat/air and 360 degree views. The cockpit is fully enclosed and carpeted as well. 

The Maxum 4600-LE offers "European Sport Cruiser" styling, layout, and elegance at a fraction of the cost...with the reliability and simplicity of American components. Loaded and in pristine condition, "Nostra Tana" offers tremendous value for the dollar, that you will find unbeatable in this price range. Don't delay...she is sure to sell quick!
