Our Mission

It is our mission to partner with our clients and make the yacht buying and selling experience as pleasurable as possible. We want to ensure all our new owners are confident and comfortable with the use of their new or brokerage purchases so the entire boating experience is enjoyable for years to come. We have many years invested in the yacht sales business and we will use that to accomplish our goal.

Maritimo Yacht Sales & Maritimo Yachts

Our previous company, Compass Point Yachts Inc, was the oldest U.S. dealer for the Maritimo yacht line, until we rebranded under the new comapny name Maritimo Yacht Sales. The Maritimo line has been built in Australia since 2003. It is a privately owned yacht line. Maritimo is owned by World renowned Bill Barry-Cotter. Bill has been racing, designing and building boats for over 50 years. The line specializes in a fully enclosed bridge design and a sedan series. The boats are very comfortable underway in the oceans and they specialize in features like a full beam master stateroom, inside stairs to the fully enclosed fly bridge, wide walk around side decks and large cockpits. The entire line is very fuel efficient as compared to its competition.
