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 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, 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. Let me give you the full attention you and your yacht deserves immediately! I list and sell my offerings in under 60 days if they are market priced!

Builders Comments:

Designed in the tradition of L. Francis Herreshoff's "Ticonderoga," the Cherubini 44 with her sweeping sheer, low free-board and raked spars recalls the elegance of a bygone era. She was built in 1980 to the highest standards and refitted in 2002. The Cherubini 44 was conceived as a fast, seaworthy, cruising vessel - easy to handle with just two people and comfortable with four or six aboard. She has a sea-kindly motion and luxuriously appointed accommodations.Her sleek, long under body cuts easily through the water. She easily reaches hull speed (8.5 knots) and surprisingly goes beyond it. Her sister-ships have performed very well in many prestigious offshore races.Her special Scheel Keel enables her to climb to weather like a deep-keeled vessel while she maintains all the cruising flexibility of a shoal-draft boat. With a draft of only 4 feet 10 inches, there are no problems getting into any harbor or anchorage. Snugged down at night, the Cherubini 44 becomes a gracious floating home.
