Why List With Us
Sail Annapolis, located on the Annapolis waterfront, is a true destination for boat shoppers. Our crew has over 40 years of boat sales experience. For over 17 years we’ve matched owners with boats for cruising, racing, and day sailing on the Chesapeake Bay, East & West Coasts and beyond… Let our experience and solid ethics work for you!
We are not looking for hundreds of stagnant listings. Sail Annapolis prefers to market about 30 boats at any given time, which allows us to give each boat more focused attention. Your boat will be inspected prior to offering her for sale and a suggested list of items that need attention will be provided. A boat only gets a few seconds to make that first impression on a buyer and we want your boat to be a stand out. The broker will work with you to create a detailed listing and keep it updated. We do a thorough market analysis in order for you to position your boat properly in the ever-changing market.
Our marketing plan for your boat consists of Yachtworld listings, Boat Shows, Open Houses and constant contact with our customer base via newsletters and email blasts.
Internet: The Internet is the best way to market our listings. Yachtworld.com is the #1 source of used boat listings in the world. To catch a potential buyers immediate attention we typically create videos of each brokerage vessel. Yachtworld is a multiple listing website that allows buyers and brokers to see your listing worldwide!
Boat Shows & Open Houses: Sail Annapolis exhibits new & used boats in several Boat Shows each year and host a number of Open Houses, all of which give extensive exposure to our brokerage listings.
Direct Customer Contact: We utilize our extensive database of Customers and Potential Buyers via newsletters, email blasts and personal contact.
Networking: Our relationship with other brokerage firms to find buyers and facilitate yacht purchases.
Print Media: We also advertise in select print media.
We are members of YBAA (Yacht Brokers Association of America) and CPYB (Certified Professional Yacht Brokers). Member of MTAM (Marine Trades Assoc. of America)
