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 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 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 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 Yachtworld.com & Boats.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, 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. I also specialize in quality offshore-type sailboats of traditional design such as Shannon, Bristol, Pacific Seacraft, Hans Christian, Tartan, Passport, Valiant, Cape Dory, Hinckley, Hallberg Rassy, Sabre, Swan, Little Harbor, Lyman Morse, Alden and Oyster.

Owner's Comments:

"Sails Call" is configured as a single aft cockpit, couple-friendly Sloop/Convertible Cutter rig - hydraulic backstay adjuster, bow thruster and electric main halyard winch - year-in and year-out "Sails Call" safely delivered us to our ports-of-call during weather that ranged from sunny/low humidity - sideways rain and wind that gave us light zephyrs - a double reefed main and headsail-reduced sailing. At most of our stopping and layover points, we opted to be on “the hook”. During fair weather conditions listening to music or reading in the cockpit was our preferred pastime until we surrendered to the biting no-see-um midges or retired for the evening. When it was too hot or too cold we opted for the below deck to watch TV, a movie or listen to music while the genset performed double duty cooling/heating the cabin and charging the house batteries.

Since new, "Sails Call" benefitted from continuous maintenance, repairs and upgrade installations performed by the people at Haven Harbour Marina in Rock Hall, Maryland. During the inaugural season of sailing, the first upgrade was to add a double fuel filter system to address peace-of-mind knowing we have a back-up fuel filter that can be engaged with the flip of a lever. Other upgrades are a combination of “form” and “function” items. The latter include replacing the factory installed refrigerator/ freezer with a two-compressor Sea Frost refrigeration/freezer system that “sips” rather than “guzzles” from the house batteries, installing a tri-color LED mast light, better constructed water tanks, replacing, the inverter/battery charger, bilge, sump and pressurized water system pumps and aged LPG tanks, and upgrading the windlass. Creature comfort “form” installations are vacu-flush toilets in both heads, a replaced forward AC/Heat unit, Sirius AM/FM radio with DVD/CD player that is controlled below and in the cockpit, current generation dual station Raymarine electronics (depth, speed, autopilot, chart plotter/radar) and VHF radio, a Bose Surround sound system and a bulkhead mounted “Smart” flat screen HD TV with a “Smart” HD Wi-Fi Blue-ray Disc Player.

During the 2015 winter/spring, "Sails Call" has receive an indoor exterior and interior cosmetic refurbishing. As the 2015 season begins, she is one of the best performing, beautifully detailed and outstandingly outfitted quality 46' shoal draft sailboats on the Chesapeake Bay.  

"Sails Call" is a beautiful example of the very desirable Tartan 4600 that has had been maintained in Bristol condition....Fred Wise Yacht Survey LLc. Please email or call us to receive a copy of this pre-purchase report, completed 4/2015.

Manufacturer's Comments:

The shape of her hull depicts a vessel with authority and agility, easily propelled through the water regardless of the conditions. The balanced spade rudder and beavertail keel provide the appropriate directional and lateral stability to maintain control under all circumstances, while her steering ability is as responsive as a boat 5 feet shorter and several thousand pounds lighter. The use of innovative materials and methods for construction fabricate strong, light and well-insulated hull and deck structures. Laminated from the highest grade NPG-isophthalic gelcoat, vinylester and polyester resins and unidirectional "E" glass, locally reinforced with Kevlar on a balsa core, she yields a high strength-to-weight ratio. Extensive framing, structural floor timbers and full structurally-bonded bulkheads further maintain her hull rigidity, while allowing for greater load carrying ability. Below deck she is dramatic in layout. Her standard plan is perfectly fit for two couples, granting each their own sleeping quarters and separate entrance. Equipped with some of the finest luxuries desired by any sailor, the Tartan 4600 offers an array of kingly commodities both on deck and down below. Suited for serious cruising by a crew or a couple, her masthead rig and lines are designed for easy handling. Main halyard, reefs and main sheet are lead aft, while the genoa and optional spinnaker halyard are led to a winch located to the starboard side of the mast. Her electric main halyard winch, oversized sail-handling winches, cockpit adjustable genoa lead and Harken Bat slide mainsail system are just a few of the many thoughtful touches standard with her design.
