“I used Josh at 26 North Yachts to sell my boat and was extremely satisfied with their services. I preferred the smaller, boutique style of this brokerage for their innovative and flexible atmosphere. Josh was a pleasure to work with, very friendly, responsive, knowledgeable who worked hard to look out for my interests and not only sold the boat for over the ask but handled a difficult closing very professionally. I would highly recommend their services.”

“We have sailed the Caribbean for over twenty years and decided to switch to a five stateroom motor yacht for future family cruising adventures primarily in the Florida and Gulf Coast areas. After checking out the market for a couple of months, we contacted 26 North Yachts. They knew the market and responded quickly and professionally to answer all of our questions. They helped us negotiate a satisfactory price with the owner and then used their many contacts to arrange a great team to conduct the surveys, sea trials, and future moorage. They even arranged insurance contacts and a fantastic yacht management team. It really was a pleasant, professional and seamless process from start to finish. We closed the sale from three thousand miles away without a worry. Everything happened as it should, and without a hitch. I recommend this business, without reservation, for anyone, experienced or not, who has any interest in buying a motor yacht.”

“I had a great experience dealing with 26 North Yachts. Nicholas Scherb did an excellent job representing us in the purchase of a 140′ Feadship Expedition Yacht. The effort they put forward in finding us the perfect boat has been unmatched in my years involved in yachting. Nicholas was always available, attended every day of survey and seatrial and was attentive and thorough throughout the closing process. We felt that no aspect of the transaction was overlooked. I would not hesitate to recommend Nicholas or 26 North Yachts to any potential buyer or seller looking for a broker.”

"When the wife and I decided to go full time boating we decided to move up from our 60’ motor yacht to a 70’. I met with Bill Powers of 26 North Yachts and instantly knew he was guy who would find our perfect boat. I can’t imagine how many miles he drove to look at boats that we saw online to give us a hands on review all the while honing in on our likes and dislikes. Months of looking in a very tough market he finally found her. She’s an 80’ Lazzara that’s a perfect fit for our live aboard life. The whole staff was so helpful in the whole buying process and made for such a smooth experience. i wouldn’t consider anyone else in our future boat buying or selling needs."

I had several Brokers forwarding links to me as boats came on the market, but only Mike Manteiga took the time to contact me to find out exactly what I was looking for, then actively search for a corresponding boat.

Nicholas Scherb came to the rescue when I needed a dock and broker to sell my yacht. I found his entire staff to be professional and personable. They all went above and beyond to get my boat sold. I highly recommend 26 North Yachts!

26 North Travel concierge

The Concierge services offered by 26 North made magic happen! They secured an elusive Michelin Star restaurant reservation in Napa at the last moment! Initially, I was unsure if we needed the service at all, but now I understand how a special a benefit like this really is.

— Romeo S.

Thanks to the 26 North Concierge, a three-week trip on our 80'ft Sportfish to the Bahamas was more perfect. The team planned an excellent itinerary, but then we discovered the real value. They modified our plans due to poor weather. they coordinated with my captain and realigned our entire trip. We never worried about the details. Their proposed destinations were ideal for our yachts and guests! The 26 North organization is a welcome refresh in the world of yachting.

Without hesitation I give my strongest personal recommendation to Will Snyder of 26 North Yachts. Though our sale wasn’t one the several multi-million dollar boats on yacht row, Will didn’t treat us any different and always provided a high level of service.

Yacht buying in many ways is similar to buying a home. Throughout the process of buying a boat significant stressors present and Will was absolutely instrumental in identifying stressful areas and then taking the lead on mitigation strategies and finding resolutions everybody was happy with.

I give my strongest recommendation in using Will Snyder at 26 North Yachts as your next yacht broker.

bahamas charter

Recently my yacht was listed with 26 North Yachts. The owners run a tight ship (no pun intended). The boat was sold in a shorter amount of time than expected and I got a good price for the yacht. Very happy with their operation, people and method of doing business. Great guys!

A big thank you to Michael Manteiga for selling our yacht. Operating a yacht requires a crew, selling one does too... 26 North Yachts knows what they are doing from photoshoots and marketing to closing the sale. Michael has an easy going and approachable way about him, is professional, knowledgable, upfront and direct - we trusted him to represent our best interests, and he did. Making the decision to sell our SeaRay was easy for us, we knew it was time... What we did not know was how much time and commitment, conversations and negotiations are required and took place on our behalf. Yes, it is a cerebral process made easier when you have the right person at the helm.

26 North Yachts is an absolutely incredible company. They go above and beyond for their clients. Whether you are looking to buy, sell, or charter a yacht, you need to reach out to this team.

Make sure to check them out at the major boat shows. I was able to stop by their booth at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show (FLIBS) and I was blown away by all of the small details they make sure to cover.

A big thank you to Mike Manteiga for his help and guidance as we purchased our Nordhavn 46. His knowledge, experience and patience made this stressful process so much easier. Mike's network helped us narrow down the field and now his network is helping us post sale. Thank you, Mike, for making this vessel a reality!!
