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 24 years ago to better serve my clients buying and selling needs of their power or sailing yachts from 20-80'. 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 also offer "hands on" instruction to my buyers that are unfamiliar with their new purchase. I will also arrange for the delivery of your yacht to Annapolis to be sold, or for your new purchase to your destination after the sale!

Yacht View Brokerage, LLC image My reputation is built 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, Passagemaker Magazine and Prop Talk and Spin Sheet and on my Yachtworld.com & Boats.com web sites, with over 100 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 offer complimentary dockage & 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!

Call or E-mail Captain John Kaiser, Jr. (john@yachtview.com) for details and to list your yacht today! I am busy selling my current inventory and always need new listings to market and sell.

I am YOUR personal agent and work to ONLY sell your listing. I accept all high quality Power or Sailing Yacht listings from 20'-80' which are well maintained and priced to current market.

Jefferson Yachts Special Edition series features a host of standard amenities, highly refined interior and exceptional exterior styling. From helm to galley, the rich teak satin cabinetry compliments the airy, atrium-like salon which is 6'7" headroom!. You'll love retreating to your spacious aft master while guests go forward to their queen-berth stateroom.

The Jefferson Rivanna SE has earned its reputation for sturdy construction. Nida-Core, (high impact resistance, virtually zero water absorption, high dimensional thermal stability, sound and thermal insulation) is utilized in the decking, cabin and bulkhead construction to increase strength and performance.

She is a two stateroom, two head layout. The VIP Guest Stateroom is located forward with private access to head and enclosed stall shower. The Master Stateroom is located aft and is a full beam Master finished in beautiful hand rubbed teak cabinetry and a teak sole featuring a Queen Island berth on the center-line. There is a private head with tub/shower. Plenty of cedar lined drawer space and hanging space.

The spacious main salon features a leather “L” shaped settee along the starboard side and a pair of barrel swivel chairs port and starboard at the front boundary. The open feel of the main salon makes for a perfect common area to entertain.


The galley is down from the main salon and is accessed by two steps from the main salon. Situated to the port side it is a full feature galley with plenty of storage space and a solid array of appliances capable of preparing just about any meal. Spacious and airy you are not isolated from the activity in the main salon but not in the middle of it either. Directly across to the starboard side at this level is the convertible dinette with room for six or a very comfortable 4. It easily converts to a third berth for two additional guests should the need arise. The steps leading into this area also lift up to give access to the engine room.
