In much the same way that a successful stock or real estate broker studies their market, experienced yacht brokers are continually analyzing theirs. To stay current with pricing trends, supply and demand, and notable transactions, they follow the international yacht listings closely.

Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 Sailboat - Best Performance Cruiser

Posted by Hannah Ellis on Dec 31, 2019 2:12:03 PM

The Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 challenges the long-time idea that bigger is better. This sailboat is so incredible it was dubbed Performance Cruiser of the Year, which just happens to be the most competitive category of awards given to boats. We had the chance to show off the 30.1 at the Newport International Boat Show, and to be honest, the title of "best performance cruiser" fits her perfectly. So what makes the Beneteau Oceanis 30.1 so special?

In the northern climates, the best time to shop for your next boat can be in the winter. Generally, the demand is down. And, if you are in the market for a high-quality used brokerage boat, know that many owners would prefer to eliminate storage costs sooner rather than later.

Posted by Hannah Ellis on Dec 16, 2019 10:58:50 AM

Congratulations to the Winners of Our Boating Lifestyle Contest

It's finally the time everyone's been waiting for. Today we announce our boating lifestyle photo-contest winner. We had so many amazing submissions, but two of them made us say, "they are living the life." The boating lifestyle isn't just about owning a boat, it's about so much more. It's about time with family, disconnecting from our crazy lives, and spending time in the simplicity of nature. The boating lifestyle is truly about enjoying the little things in life. We want to say, "thank you" to everyone who entered. We loved all of your photos and enjoyed reading about what the boating lifestyle means to you. Congratulations to our 2019 photo contest winners.

Why We Love Selling Boats

Posted by Gail Farias on Dec 5, 2019 4:45:10 PM

Ahhh the boating life! Why do people become so obsessed with boating? Even living in New England where there are only a few months of the year where you can truly enjoy boating, people still flock to marinas to have time on the water with loved ones. Why do you think that is? Is it the adventure of sailing the seas, or the need for some speed? I think every boater has a different reason for enjoying their life on the water and the Cape Yachts team loves to help fulfill those dreams.

What is the Right Type of Boat for Me?

Posted by Gail Farias on Nov 11, 2019 3:05:23 PM

Recreational, cruising and fishing boats come in many sizes and shapes, each designed for specific use and level of comfort. To make sure you select the right one, you should consider the intended use, style, configuration, size, and price range. Where your boat will be used and how it will be stored should be critical considerations, as well.

The types of boats and yachts tend to fall into three general categories, although more than one activity can be enjoyed on many.

The principal reasons buyers purchase boats are for:

  • Fishing
  • Cruising
  • Watersports

The New Cobia 350 Center Console Is for You If...

Posted by Hannah Ellis on Nov 4, 2019 11:00:57 AM

Every once in a while a boat comes along that blurs the lines between sport and luxury. We’ve seen it before with Hatteras Sportfishing Yachts and the Cabo 41. This time Cobia is bringing their A game to the table with a new 35-foot center console. The Cobia 350 CC debuted this year and instantly caught our eye. Cobia has always provided high-quality center and dual console boats, successfully packaging together hours of fun on the water in a powerful yet easy to handle, mid-sized package. The 350 CC brings all of this to the table... and then some.
