The Rockport Marine Brokerage connects two world renowned companies in a strategic relationship designed to better serve the yard’s customers while encouraging wooden boat stewardship.
In June of 2016 Rockport Marine purchased David Jones Yacht Brokerage. Over the course of nearly 20 Years, David Jones established his business as the destination brokerage for wooden boat owners. David’s reputation and his relationship with Rockport Marine made this partnership a natural choice. We feel fortunate to work with David and appreciate his on going input.
Individuals interested in listing with the brokerage are required to submit a recent marine survey (boats over 19′), photos of the boat taken within the past 6 months that are at least 640 x 480 pixels and a summary of known upcoming maintenance.
Honest presentation of a boat facilitates timely, informed sales. Prospective buyers are more likely to travel for a viewing if they have reviewed a comprehensive survey and are familiar with a boats condition. This attention to detail makes us unique in the yacht sales industry. We’re happy to refer owners and buyers to knowledgeable surveyors for pre-listing or pre-purchase assessments.
We look forward to working with you.
