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 29 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.

Shannon, Bristol, Pacific Seacraft, Hans Christian, Tartan, Passport, Valiant, Cape Dory, Hinckley, Hallberg Rassy, Sabre, Swan, Little Harbor, Lyman Morse, Alden and Oyster.

31' Helmsman Trawlers Flybridge Single stateroom Trawler w/bow thruster!
2015 US$ 249,000

Take a look at this beauty! A 2018 model will cost over $320,000.00 equipped as this model!  She has been hauled for winter storage on 11/27/2017 and is located at Scandia Marine Center for your personal inspection.

Recent Survey also available! All offers presented and considered! Seller wants to be the next one sold in 2018!

The "No Vacancy" has just arrived at my dock (6/20/2017) and I am completely impressed with her fit and finish! She is such a unique smaller and easily handled trawler (has bow thruster too!), great for one couple cruising and has a galley up with fridge and freezer and convection microwave and deep stainless sink with air conditioning and generator! We just hauled and fully detailed and bottom painted her for the next owner (8/2017)!

With only 162.8 hours of first owner use, this is like buying a new boat for much less than waiting to build one! I would highly encourage your inspection asap if you are down sizing to a one couple, stout pocket cruiser that has the feel of a much larger yacht!!

Owner's Comments:

When I proposed to Nancy, it had only one caveat “I come with a trawler and if that doesn’t work, our marriage won’t either”. Turned out wonderful. In fact, she talked folks out of buying my previous boat three times! Only after we agreed to be part of the design of a new hull number one, did she relent. We were fortunate to be able to travel to Seattle and participate in the design of a new small trawler, using the original Camano molds and completely redesigning the interior. No Vacancy is the result. She has the fit and finish of much higher end trawlers. Her teak and holly is equal to anything on the market, with corian counters, oversized stainless rails, cleats, anchor pulpit and more. No plastic or gimmicks or plywood covered with carpet. Just a real, tough little trawler that lives much bigger than her length and beam. Storage space everywhere and a separate full shower and dry head. You won’t find that in anything its size or price.  A “little guy” built to play with  the big boys.  As we did for many years on our previous trawler, we sailed the Chesapeake on No Vacancy and as far south as Beaufort with her, enjoying the daily journey and the wonderful ports of call along the way. Unfortunately we had to head back north this spring. No doubt she would have made a perfect couples boat to do the whole loop.

     Our decision to put her on the market, far sooner than we had planned, is bitter sweet at best. We had intended to do the loop with her, but no longer have that option. However, our change in plans will allow some lucky couple to take her across her own wake someday. If purchased today, the wait to have her built would be substantial and far more costly. Indeed, she may be one of a kind, with all the bells and whistles of hull number one, including custom chairs from Glastop Marine Furniture, custom mattress from Handcraft Mattress, real brass Weems and Plath fixtures, custom Arrigoni hi/lo table, full Garmin upper and lower helms, generator, bow thruster and more. We can’t wait to check out the blog from her new proud owners as they live their “someday” on the water.

Michael and Nancy, Owners

Helmsman Trawlers have returned the venerable Camano 31 hull to the water with this new model -- and this example is a showpiece. She was built with several unique features -- a custom interior with full use of teak and holly throughout, storage/seating bench topside, hardtop cockpit cover, Fighting Lady Yellow hull color, custom salon barrel chairs, custom folding dining/cocktail table, custom mattress and more. This boat has exceptionally low hours and is available only because the owners' plans have changed.

This compact trawler offers amazing comfort and live-ability for a couple with a large galley, lots of storage throughout, and a master suite (with separate head and shower compartments) comparable to much larger boats. The flybridge is comparatively enormous.

Powered by a Hyundai SeasAll V6 diesel which must be experienced to be appreciated for its smooth, quiet power.

The craftsmanship throughout this boat is remarkable -- the stainless work, the joinery and the tough fiberglass layup.

A perfect boat for the Great Loop!
