My wife and I sail a 2000 Beneteau 311 on the Bay. To say we are proud Beneteau Owners would be a bit of an understatement. We purchased Parlay a few years ago from AYS when she was on the brokerage list. From that point the list of things we wanted to have done was born. It has taken us longer than we would have liked but finally this past winter she came down from Baltimore for Winter storage at Jabin’s. Your Team performed most of the winterization. Seriously I cannot thank Kathy and crew enough.


What a great experience we had with Annapolis Yacht Sales. Deanna Sansbury did a marvelous job providing leadership and direction throughout the process of selling our boat from start to finish… and we can’t say thanks enough. She not only created an enthusiastic atmosphere, but she professionally marketed our boat in a manner that exceeded our expectations…and the results are proof of her hard work. Well done!


Our knowledgeable and experienced team of yacht brokers are passionate boaters themselves, equipped with the expertise to guide you through every step of the yacht buying or selling process.

We understand that investing in a yacht is a significant decision, and our dedicated professionals are here to ensure you make an informed choice that aligns with your boating aspirations.
