Annapolis Maryland's market is the strongest in the country & I am ready to sell your yacht!

Yacht View Brokerage, LLC image My name is John Kaiser, Jr. I own and operate Yacht View Brokerage LLC, a full service Power and Sail Brokerage, here in Annapolis, Maryland. I began my business 26 years ago to better serve my clients buying and selling needs of their power or sailing yachts from 25-80'. I offer a more focused and personal approach to buying or selling yachts since I work with only a few buyers or seller at any given time. Currently I hold a 100 ton USCG Merchant Marine Officer Auxiliary Sail/Motor/Master's license (since 1983) and am fully commercially insured. I have built custom yachts with my Father at Kaiser Yachts in Wilmington, Delaware, graduated from Regis University in Denver, Colorado, owned a charter sailing, diving and fishing business for many years in Duck Key, Florida Keys and Edgartown, Martha's Vineyard, Mass. and have delivered many types and sizes of sailing and power yachts to destinations all over the east coast of the US. I attended the Photographic Workshops in Rockport Maine to learn the Film/Video production and Photography business and to become a proficient cameraman. I also love delivering yachts and know every turn of the ICW from Key West to Norfolk, including the entire Chesapeake Bay to Maine!

I began my brokerage business here in Annapolis in 1988 and strive to use every tool to enhance the marketing and sales time of every one of my personal listings. I apply myself to the strictest standards of excellence and work for my clients satisfaction. I can also arrange for a USCG licensed Captain delivery of your yacht to Annapolis to be sold, or for your new purchase delivered to your destination after the sale!

Yacht View Brokerage, LLC image My reputation is built daily on my clients satisfaction and pride of their yacht ownership. (call or email to have me put you in touch with my most recent buyers or sellers) This is the reason that I retain most all of my past customers to help them sell their boats when they are ready to move up or down in size or retire from boating.

When you list your yacht, I will advertise her in national and local publications such as Chesapeake Bay Magazine, Prop Talk and Spin Sheet and on my www.Yachtworld.com & www.Boats.com and www.theyachtmarket.com web sites, with over 150 professionally taken, beautiful, high resolution, digital wide-angle color photographs, detailed layout drawings and a complete inventory list of exactly what is included in the sale.

I will become your private broker during the selling period, since all of my attention is paid to the effort of selling your yacht! I will list and market your yacht from her current location or will offer complimentary dockage at my Annapolis location which can include cleaning from one of Annapolis's premier Yacht Detailing companies to keep your yacht clean and detailed, so she is in top showing/selling condition. No other broker I know of offers such attention to selling "only" your yacht!

I represent both power and sailboats and specialize in high quality Downeast style Cruisers, Trawlers, Motoryachts, Pilothouse Trawlers, Tugs and offshore boats, as well as Grand Banks, Krogen, Nordic, Defever, Eastbay, Marlow, Aleutian, Ocean Alexander, Albin, Duffy, Wilbur, Newman, Hinckley, Selene, Nordhavn, American Tug, Hood Whisperjet, Sabreline, Cape Dory, Back Cove, Dyer and Fortier.

Seller's thoughts:

For 30 years we sailed an Albin Ballad 30. It had no hot water, no refrigeration, no chart plotter or radar – it was camping on a boat. But boy could she sail. We could outpoint and outsail many larger boats as long as we had 12 knots of wind. When we retired, we wanted a boat with more amenities, more comfort, but we did not want to sacrifice performance. And if we could find a boat that performed in light air, so much the better. We also did not want a really deep keel given the depths of the Chesapeake. The Sabre 362 was the answer. It was voted the 1994 Mid-size Cruiser Boat of the Year by Cruising World.  It points well, moves well in light air, and has a wing keel. Besides that she came with the larger, more reliable Yanmar engine, air conditioning, extra cabinets in the stern cabin, and electric main halyard winch, all factory upgrades. We added solar panels, a new chart plotter and radar in 2015, a new windlass (because the old one failed), new canvas and a partial enclosure, and replaced the Dutchman system with the easier U-stack system in 2015, We also replaced the sails in 2015 because we like to perform well. We did not want the expense of racing sails, but we felt we could do better with new sails. You know how it is whenever two sailboats get side by side. It’s a race. Mainestay has been up the Atlantic coast from St. Simon’s Island to Beaufort, NC, and then on the Intercoastal Waterway to our house on the Chesapeake, all over the Bay, and up to and all around Long Island Sound. She has been well used, and well loved.

We are getting older and were thinking about moving to a trawler to stay on the water. We were not planning to make this move for a year or two, but the boat we wanted, with all the features we wanted, fell into our lap at a good price. We felt we would be kicking ourselves two years down the road if we didn’t take advantage of this opportunity. So Mainestay is on the market. If we could keep and maintain both boats, we probably would. Whoever gets her will get one wonderful sailboat.
