In 2002 the partners of Swiftsure Yachts joined 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 business plan and are designed to ensure we meet our customers’ expectations.
Serving the west coast of the United States and British Columbia from San Francisco to Vancouver Island, our team steps outside the norm of commission-based yacht sales to make certain our collective expertise is directed by the needs of 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 yacht design.
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.

Considered to be a “bucket list event” by many avid racers, we’re excited to have Swiftsure’s own Brad Baker set to participate in this year’s […]
