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 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, 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.

Owner statement:
I purchased this boat on 07/02/14 with a engine that had been replaced with a remanufactured Jasper 7.4 liter installed in 2012 with the hour meter reading 340 hrs according to survey provided to me by seller. When I purchased the boat the hour meter read 426 hours. I removed the engine and Bravo 3 stern drive with cylinder head damage do to the Installer of the replacement engine not replacing the exhaust manifolds, spacers and risers when replacing the engine. The old exhaust system failed and allowed seawater to enter the cylinder head and damaged the valves. I removed the cylinder heads, inspected the cylinders and sent the cylinder heads to a local machine shop and had the cylinder heads professionally remanufactured with new valves, guides and seats. I installed the heads with new Mercruiser head gaskets, head bolts, intake manifold gaskets, exhaust manifolds, spacer block kits and stainless steel elbows. New fuel pump and fuel cool assembly where installed and all 8 injectors where sent out and professionally cleaned and tested. I installed new NGK spark plugs, distributor cap, rotor, thermostat, serpentine belt and rebuilt seawater pump assembly. Filled the engine with synthetic 20w40 engine oil and new oil filter and fuel filter. I completely painted the motor with Mercruiser Phantom black paint. Cleaned the engine compartment. Removed and replaced the sterndrive tilt and trim pump with a new complete factory Mercruiser trim pump assembly. Removed the old Atwood water heater and installed a new stainless steel Atwood 6 gallon water heater with heat exchanger connected with new hoses to the engine to allow the water to be heated by the engine when not plugged into shore power. I installed a new Jabsco Blaster fresh water pump assembly and 2 new 31 series deep cycle battery's with new battery trays and hold downs. Installed new Jabsco impeller driven self priming bilge pump to pump the bilge completely dry. I also replaced both factory Rule bilge pumps and float switches with new. Installed Faria fuel flow sensor and meter in dash. Spring of 2015 the hull was soda blasted to bare gelcoat and coated with three coats of Pettit Protect underwater barrier coat epoxy, 2 coats of black Woolsey Neptune Multi Season anti fouling paint was applied. Bravo 3 stern drive and transom assembly was soda blasted, primed with Interlux aluminum etching primer and 3 coats of Pettit protect epoxy primer applied to prevent corrosion. The drive and transom assembly where painted with Interlux Tri Lux aluminum anti fouling paint and new Zics installed. All old striping was removed, the entire boat was wet sanded, compounded and waxed with 2 Cotes of Starbrite PTEF Synthetic wax. A 4000 watt inverter system was installed to operate the microwave and other AC electrical items such as a coffee maker or hair dryer. The port lounge cushion was re-upholstered and new Lowrance HDS 5 fish finder/ chart plotter and transducer was installed. New DC fans where installed in both forward and aft cabins.and Replaced the old stereo with new Sony CD player with Bluetooth, MP3, USB and Pandora capabilities. Installed new Lowrance HDS 5 GPS/ Fish finder with new transducer. I upgraded the factory installed undersized 12"x12" trim tab planes to new Bennett 18"x9" trim planes to allow complete leveling and bow control. November 12, 2015 engine oil and fuel filters where changed and entire boat winterized and shrink wrapped. The port lounge cushions where removed and professionally re-Upholstered and re-installed.

New black and gold boot stripe and deck striping where applied. I'm sure I'm forgetting a few things in this list. This 1999 270 Sundancer is as perfect as a 1999 boat can be. I would not hesitate to run her to Florida and back!

All of the full enclosure was replaced with new in 2013. Interior cushions steamed cleaned on 5/18/2016. She is a must see and a very rare find. Trailer available for and additional $3,500.00. In water and ready for a complimentary demo run!
