Welcome to DYB Charter & Yacht Sales

DYB Charter & Yacht Sales image Formerly located in Edgewater, Florida, the home of Boston Whaler, Everglades Boats, and Edgewater Power Boats on Florida's East Coast for 18 years, DYB Yacht Sales has now relocated to Stuart, Florida the crossroads of Stuart Inlet, the St. Lucie River, and the ICW !!

The clients we serve are from the Caribbean, Europe, and the U.S. We help them realize their boating dreams, from purchase to the delivery of the boat, to their desired cruising area.

The vessels pictured below are all vessels that I helped the owners purchase, and subsequently captained and/or managed for a period of time, until they felt comfortable in cruising for themselves.

DYB Charter & Yacht Sales image In 1978 DYB started its existence as Donhauser's Yacht Brokerage in Lighthouse Point, Florida. The mid 80's saw us as Endeavour Yachts largest sailboat dealer in the U.S., and managing a charter fleet, of both power and sailboats, from the area in South Florida. Charters, management, vessel refits, and yacht sales, along with my personal involvement as a licensed captain, on several large motor yachts and sportfish, have given me significant experience along the East Coast of the U.S., Florida, The Bahamas, The Caribbean, Mexico's Atlantic and Pacific Coasts, The Mediterranean from France to Tunisia to Malta, and The Coral Sea from Brisbane to New Caledonia.

DYB Charter & Yacht Sales image I look forward to speaking directly with you, regarding your boating needs. As a licensed and bonded Florida broker for 36 years now, and having had a U S Coast Guard 100 ton license Captains license for over 15 years, I hope to gain your trust and confidence, and work for you, as your broker. Listing agreements, contracts, deposits held in escrow, trial runs, boat and engine surveys, loans, payoffs, title work, insurance, and closings require a knowledgeable, experienced broker, working in your interest, to have both buyers and sellers leaving the closing table happy.

DYB Charter & Yacht Sales image Our computer and Internet services continue to expand, so that we can offer you the best possible service as changes in MLS/Internet services and the Internet have forced changes in marketing techniques. When you as a buyer search the internet and click on a particular boat, you are dealing directly with the listing broker. Remember this when it comes time to write a contract, as the loyalty of the listing broker is to the person selling the boat, NOT YOU THE BUYER. A few brokers can do a fine job representing both parties, but just be aware, and consider using a broker as your "buyers" agent to assist in the search and purchase, before writing a contract !!!!

DYB Charter & Yacht Sales image Normally a 10% deposit accompanies all purchase offers. The deposit is held in our escrow account until the purchase is completed or rejected. The contract is usually written so that the purchase is subject to "trial run and survey(s) satisfactory to the buyer". This allows for a good inspection of the boat as well as an opportunity to see and feel the boat in action. The larger the boat the more extensive the survey will get. On a smaller boat a marine surveyor can do the entire job. Once we move up in size it is advisable to include a separate engine survey, and if needed both an electronics and electrical survey. On metal boats an audiogauge is strongly recommended. Title searches and abstracts should be required prior to any closing.

Since I own my company, my only interest is to work for you, as your agent, and make sure that you are in the right boat. This costs you nothing additional as all commissions are usually paid by the seller. I will make you aware of what you are buying, both the upside and the downside. Your boat may not be in our backyard, so I am happy to travel wherever necessary to make sure we have found "your" boat, and it is as represented by the listing. Please give me a call, as I would appreciate the opportunity to assist you, and your friends, with your boating needs, whether it be power or sail, or showing you how to catch wahoo or marlin.

DYB Charter & Yacht Sales image Over the years I have found great pleasure and satisfaction in helping new owners with on-the-job training, whether it is basic seamanship with their new boat, setting up maintenance schedules, or just captaining with the owners in order for them to satisfactorily meet the requirements of an insurance company. Helping to make your boating experience a pleasure is my primary concern.

In addition to myself, my associate, Mr. John Duxbury of Jupiter, Florida will avail himself to also assist you with any sale or purchase of a boat. John has lived in Jupiter for over 25 years and knows all of the boating areas very well. He carries a U.S.C.G. Masters 100 ton captains license and has delivered numerous vessels up and down the coast from Florida to New England. John can be reached directly on cell phone at 561-309-3818 or on his email at duxspray@gmail.com .
