Capt. Timothy J. Kleihege Owner
The Mariner Network Yacht Sales

The Mariner Network Yacht Sales image

Our mission is simple: we aim to dignify an industry through honesty, hard work and proper ethics. We aim to be the best, not the biggest.


Our business philosophy is serious yet simple. We present our vessels with professional photographs and ample text to properly show the public that our vessels are of a higher caliber than others out there of the same year, make and model.

We strive to hire professional people, not professional boat salesmen. We prefer to take top professional Mariners who are presently Captains of their own vessels and train them in our methodology. This philosophy has enabled us to have the finest and most highly qualified sales force in the business. Our salesmen are currently boat owners and have been boat owners for many years. They understand your needs! The listing broker and I personally visit every vessel that we list. We meet with the owners to discuss their needs and desires.
