About Us

Here at BananaBelt Boats & Yachts Brokerage in Anacortes, Washington, we’ve come up with a unique concept in selling pre-owned motor yachts. All of our Brokerage Listings are out of the water on our 3.cre On-Land Marina. We have over 50 used boats that can be viewed in our single location – with room for more than 100!  No more running around from marina to marina and dock to dock to see boats they are all in one place!!  There’s a walkway around all the boats that is very similar to a dock. From our walkways you can access every boat in our lot!  Plus, you can see the topside AND bottom of each boat when they are out of the water. With this many boats to see in one place – and with such easy access – and as we’re open 7 days a week – it’s like “A Boat Show Every Day!”

We were started by John and Connie Ripley in 2000, and since 2005 we’ve been the largest by-volume pre-owned motor yacht brokerage, 28’ to 60’ in the Pacific Northwest!

We Sell More Boats Than Anyone!  Call us, or just stop by and find out why!  As we say – “When You are ready to list your boat – call a broker.  When You are ready to SELL your boat – Call BananaBelt!”

The brokerage and facility is now owned by Amy Ripley Thornton (John and Connie’s daughter) and her husband, Matthew – who are both Certified Professional Yacht Brokers (CPYB). We also

have Darren McClain and Gary Merritt in sales, Amy McClain as Marketing and Sales Coordinator t and 2 full time yard team members, Andy and Pat.  And, we own our own KMI Sea-Lift to make haul and launches, fast and easy!

The KMI Sea-Lift lets us move boats from water to land faster and more safely than ever before. The Sea-Lift was designed for safely moving yachts ranging in size from 28′-60′. It carries boats between our launching ramp across the street and our dry land marina in just minutes.
