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.

MAMIE was originally commissioned and launched in 2005 as MARTHA V and was sold by Yacht View Brokerage LLC. She was a collaboration between the builder and the designer Bob Stephens of the Brooklin Boat Yard. Construction is cold molded. The hull is four layers of cedar - the first layer is 1/2 inch atlantic white cedar tongue & groove, set fore and aft, fastened with bronze screws, followed by three layers of 1/8 inch Spanish cedar set in epoxy and vacuumed bagged. Hull is sheeted in 10 oz. cloth also set in epoxy (makes for a tough light hull). The structural members (engine stringers, deck beams, floor timbers, etc.) are all old-growth vertical grain douglas fir. The bulkheads and decks are Okume marine ply, sheeted in dynel cloth. The cabin trunk, combings, and cabinets are all mahogany. All fastenings are bronze as well as the rudder, strut, trough hulls, etc. Hull and deck are Awlgrip painted. Fixed trim tabs designed by Bob Stephens were installed in 2014 to allow higher speeds. She will cruise @ 8 knots and has a top speed of 12 knots! 

The design hinged around the builder's desire to have a vessel that could handle the intercostal waterways, yet be small enough to trailer to the bigger lakes in the Northeast.  Originally cruised throughout the New York canal system, the Hudson River, and Chesapeake Bay. She was winterized and transported to Annapolis Maryland to be available for sale to her next owner. 


Large covered Pilot House/Cockpit with aft cushioned bench seat. Under the bench seat is ample storage for dock line and fenders. Cushioned engine box for additional seating.

Below is a comfortable cushioned V-berth with filler cushion and storage compartments underneath. To starboard is a countertop with single S.S. sink and cold pressure water, large cabinets beneath provide additional storage for dry goods, cleaning supplies, etc. To port is more countertop space with a single-burner alcohol cooktop and wood cutting board cover.
