Providing premium service to the customer interested in buying or selling a high quality yacht

Swiftsure Yachts image
In 2002 the partners of Swiftsure Yachts joined together to create a full service brokerage for yachtsmen interested in buying or selling high quality boats. A team approach, in-depth expertise and exceptional service are the hallmarks of our plan and are designed to ensure we meet our customers' expectations.

Swiftsure Yachts image A TEAM APPROACH is at the heart of Swiftsure Yachts’ business plan. We step outside the norm of commission-based yacht sales to make certain our collective expertise is directed by our clients’ needs.

IN-DEPTH EXPERTISE forms the basis of the knowledge we share with our clients. We keep abreast of changing market conditions both locally and nationally, and we put in thousands of miles at sea each year to give a real-world foundation to our knowledge of sailing, boat systems and boat design.

EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE is our watchword. Clear and on-going communication combined with a commitment to listening carefully focuses our brokerage on activities designed to bring added value to the process of selling and buying yachts.

Located on the northwest corner Lake Union, our office is based in the heart of Seattle's brokerage community. If you are considering selling your boat, please stop by or give us a call and let us show you why Swiftsure Yachts is the right choice.

48' Tayana 48
2001 US$ 315,000

Designed by Robert Perry and built by Tayana, Rapport is a perfect blend of expertise in cruising sailboat design and construction. The Tayana 48’s fin keel and skeg-hung rudder provide good sailing performance and she is easily sailed by a short-handed crew with her Leisure Furl boom with electric main halyard winch and primary winches. A full cockpit enclosure protects the crew from sun, wind and adverse weather. Below decks, Rapport’s beautiful teak joinery creates a comfortable atmosphere. The three stateroom/two head layout is a fantastic arrangement for a large crew, while still providing excellent accommodations including two separate shower stalls. Storage space is well configured and ventilation is excellent – fifteen stainless steel opening ports, five deck hatches, dorade vents and Hella fans.

Rapport is extremely well-equipped and ready to continue cruising now. All upgrades by the current owner were undertaken with offshore sailing, sail handling & security at anchor in mind.  The quality of materials and installation are top shelf.  Rapport shows like a much newer boat.  One would be hard pressed to find a nicer Tayana 48 anywhere!
