California Yacht Sales was established in 1982 with the focus on providing buyers and sellers a comfortable and reassuring source to buy and sell boats.
When the doors opened, it was at the same location that California Yacht Sales is located today. A large corner office at the largest marina in San Diego, Harbor Island West Marina, on Harbor Island. Great visibility to showcase all of our listings at a location that has more boaters than any other.
Through the years, California Yacht Sales has earned our reputation of responsible representation for yacht buyers and sellers. Knowing that we can best represent our clients by being highly thought of by our peers, we have stayed true to our commitment to be a fine competitor. Other brokers like working with California Yacht Sales, whether showing our listings to their clients or allowing us access to their listings on your behalf.
When founder Suzi Green decided to semi-retire, she wanted to ensure that her commitment to excellence and integrity would be continued. In 2003, she sold California Yacht Sales to Ian Bossenger, who indeed has maintained and built upon the fine reputation of California Yacht Sales.
The brokerage has a team of licensed yacht brokers who adhere to California Yachts Sales’ high standards. They can represent you whether it is for used powerboats, used sailboats or the West Coast dealers for new Com-Pac Sailboats. They can access any listed boat at any marina — nationwide.
When the Internet was introduced as a new avenue for showcasing listings, California Yacht Sales was one of the first yacht brokerages to fully grasp the concept. As the Internet has taken the lead, and a substantial lead, over any other source for people who are looking for their next boat, California Yacht Sales has been on the forefront. Today, aside from our location and tremendous referral base, our presence on the Internet places us well beyond our peers.
