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.

Owners Statement:


My wife and I bought Azul, a Nauticat 33, last March after finding her for sale near our home.  We had not considered a Nauticat before, but we looked at her and fell in love.  The Nauticat 33 is the biggest 33 foot sailboat you will ever find.  She has ample room to spend a night, a weekend, or a month aboard and we were impressed by her sturdiness.  Built in Finland for the rough North Sea, the Nauticats are heavy displacement motorsailers.  Everything about them says “solid”.  My wife is new to boating and I wanted her to feel safe and secure.  The heavy displacement offered a sea-kindly ride in rough waters, and being able to be in the pilothouse made my wife feel safe and secure.  I liked the reliable and simple Ford-Lehman engine, and the fact that even though she had old teak decks, there is NO CORE to the fiberglass beneath…it is solid GRP.  This meant that even though the teak was old, there was no waking of the deck below due to a rotted core from water intrusion.  The decks could be refinished easily.   I also liked the fact that the previous owner had the hull peeled and barrier coated professionally, so blisters would never be a problem in the future.  I always say you buy not only the boat, but the previous owner.   The previous owner of Azul was a meticulous FAA electronics technician who rewired the entire boat and kept it ship-shape and all the systems working well through a program of regular preventative maintenance.  We bought Azul with the intent on keeping her long term, but eventually moving to a larger sailboat someday.  As such I set to work immediately restoring the exterior brightwork and teak decks, as well as reworking some of the plumbing.   Almost all brightwork has been stripped bare and refinished with Cetol Natural Teak and Gloss, and we are currently refinishing the decks.    I have re-plumbed the freshwater system to ensure that the weak point of the outlet attachment to the tank would not be a problem in the future.  I replaced the heat exchanger on the engine, as they usually go bad at around 2000 hours and I did not want any problems in the future.  Alas, a great opportunity fell into my lap at an inopportune time.  Not wanting to turn down an opportunity that I was sure would not ever come my way again, we recently bought a 44 ft. center cockpit sailboat and are now 2-boat owners.   We love Azul and hate to give her up, especially after having put so much labor into touching her up, but we know that two boats is one too many to maintain and try to sail, so, reluctantly, Azul is on the market again.  In my opinion, the only thing she is lacking is Air-conditioning, but the good thing is I have already bought a unit and it just needs to be installed.  It will go with the boat.  We hope we can find owners who will appreciate and love her as much as we have.

Azul is a 1985 Nauticat 33 Motorsailor built by Siltala Yachts in Finland.  She is the full-keel model, ketch/cutter rigged.  The NC33 is built like a tank.  She can handle heavy weather while the owner stays warm and dry in the spacious pilot house.
