Finding A Boat:

Finding the perfect boat can often be a long process.  We have 60+ listed boats for sale in our On-Land Marina, from 28’ – 70’, giving you plenty of options.  Our brokers can show you several different options, all with different layouts, fit and finishes, features and equipment.  Being able to do this all within a single boat yard is what makes BananaBelt Boats & Yachts the destination brokerage to find the boat of your dreams!

If we don’t have what you want in our inventory, our brokers can help find potential prospects at other brokerages.  They can even make arrangements to show you other boats and be your personal broker and advocate in the process.  In the end, this can even save you money!


Buying the Boat:

After finding the boat you want, BananaBelt brokers will continue working with you and on your behalf.  They will negotiate, write up all necessary agreements and get signatures (which you don’t even need to leave home for!). It’s important that you feel like you are getting the most value for your money.  Upon acceptance, they will schedule the surveys and sea trial at your convenience, using reputable surveyors suitable for the boat.

It is important to have peace of mind when you close on your yacht.  Having the right broker by your side throughout this process is the key.  BananaBelt brokers will handle and explain everything for you from start to finish.  Afterward they can connect you with reputable yachting professionals and vendors for any service that you may need.


Storing Your Boat:

If you are still looking for moorage, BananaBelt has that covered too!  Dry storage is always available when you buy from us.  We will store your boat in our On-Land Marina, keeping it out of the water when you are not using it.  Not only is this better for your boat, it’s also a fraction of the cost of moorage in a marina.

Once you buy a boat from BananaBelt Boats & Yachts you become part of a family, that will continue to support you and your boating needs for a lifetime!!
