2020 is the year to Sell or Purchase your desired Yacht! List today! The market is on FIRE!

Yacht View Brokerage, LLC image My name is John Kaiser, Jr. and I own and operate Yacht View Brokerage LLC, a full service Power and Sail Brokerage, here in Annapolis, Maryland. We are offering socially distanced showings via video walkthrough or well protected personal masks and sanitizers!

I began my business 32 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 area location. We also will arrange to have your Yacht maintained, cleaned, detailed and serviced, 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. I also specialize in quality offshore-type sailboats of traditional design such as Kaiser Gale Force yachts (my Father's designs!) Shannon, Bristol, Pacific Seacraft, Hans Christian, Tartan, Passport, Valiant, Cape Dory, Hinckley, Hallberg Rassy, Sabre, Swan, Little Harbor, Lyman Morse, Alden and Oyster.

Owner Comments: 

As her captain the last three years, I would love to introduce you to “Joy Girl”, our 2005 Nordic Tug 42. Joy Girl has been our home away from home the past two and a half years as we traveled America’s Great Loop, and in all that time and all those miles, I didn’t see one boat I’d rather have had.

The heart and soul of this boat is her amazing pilot house.  High, forward, and with a ship-like centerline helm, this is where I spent the majority of our time underway. But Joy Girl also has a flybridge directly above the pilot house, giving the captain and crew a view taller than most 50 footers. With seating for 6, this is the place to be when the weather is nice, and is my preferred position from which to dock the boat (the wireless headsets that come with the boat make life especially good during “the greatest test of a marriage”.)

With a separate U shape galley adjoining the salon, the cook has lots of work space while never having to be away from the guests.  The propane stove and oven are perfect for quiet, genset free nights on the hook in peaceful anchorages, and the 3000W pure inverter will keep all your electronic gadgets charged and running smoothly.

The master cabin features a centerline queen bed, his and hers lighted hanging lockers,8 drawers, 6 cabinets, and a large locker under the bed for almost limitless storage. The private, en suite head with full shower is more than adequate, and has multiple storage cabinets as well.

Guests live large as well, with a settee that converts to a full size berth. We added a memory foam topper to the mattresses for an even more comfy night’s sleep. Guests also have their own head, complete with shower. When friends and family are not aboard, we find this makes an excellent day head, as it allows easy communication with the bridge should anything unexpected occur while underway.

Joy Girl has been a wonderful boat for us for many other reasons.  She’s a good looking boat, drawing looks and compliments everywhere she goes She’s comfortable in any reasonable sea, comfortable inside and out, and very well built.  The only reason we are letting her go is that we have three aging parents to help (two in their 90’s) and a cat whose health is not helped by the stress he feels being on a boat.  If not for that, we would be looking forward to many more years on this wonderful vessel. And if you’re blessed to be her next captain, I’m sure you’ll enjoy her every bit as much as we have!
