Welcome to Fort Lauderdale Yacht Sales. Fort Lauderdale is well-known around the World as the yachting capital of the world. As founder and President of FortLauderdaleyachtsales.com, our goal is to provide a worry-free, transparent, yachting experience. Be it new build, purchase, charter, working with owners representatives, or professional yacht sales. Our knowledge of over 25 years in and around the yachting business started in the early eighties at Shooter's Waterfront Cafe Fort Lauderdale the #1 destination for all things yachting in Fort Lauderdale. As founder and owner of Shooter's Waterfront Cafe Orlando, we introduced a new boating experience for inland waters. Since that time, Fort Lauderdale Yacht Sales was partnered with buying, selling, and manufacturing everything from Viking and Merritt Sportfishing yachts to Columbo 75 foot luxury go fast yachts and during this time also retrofitting and remodeling a 114 ft. Broward and a 125 ft. Feadship. We embarked on our first Feadship new build 189ft mega yacht the M/Y Barbara Jean.
The Barbara Jean at the time was to be one of the largest in the World, and the project was a three year 32 Million dollar deal. Fort Lauderdale Yacht Sales worked as the owner representative in the building of the Barbara Jean having to fly to and from Amsterdam every 90 Days to the Feadship yard and oversee everything from laying of the hull with attention to details of choosing trim and furnishings. At the time of the launch, Super Yacht Magazine listed it as one of the top 25 mega yachts in the world. Once delivered, Fort Lauderdale Yacht Sales founder traveled on the yacht 200 days a year as the owners personal representative. This gives us intricate knowledge of Yacht ownership only a few people have that we can now pass on to you. After Six Years, the owner trusted Fort Lauderdale Yacht Sales to assist with marketing and advertising the yacht, and it eventually sold for $42 Million a 10 Million gross profit.
