Ahoy & Welcome!

We’re pleased that you’ve taken this opportunity to visit our website and view the many beautiful yachts that we have to offer. Purchasing a yacht is an exciting experience and we look forward to assisting you in any way that we can.

Cruising Yachts has been in business since 2007 when we acquired our first yacht dealership in Alameda (San Francisco Bay). In 2009 we acquired the former H&S Yacht Sales dealerships in San Diego and Marina del Rey (LA) giving us a presence state-wide. In January of 2013 we merged our dealership in Marina del Rey with Sailboats Unlimited, a long-established dealership in that market, where we now operate as Cruising Yachts Unlimited, Inc. Shortly thereafter, in March of 2013, we merged our dealership in Alameda with Sail California, one of the Bay area’s premier yacht dealership, to form Cruising Yachts / Sail California. As a result of this growth we now operate one of the largest yacht sales organizations in North America with the resources to provide our customers with unparalleled customer service and the largest selection of new and brokerage yachts on the West Coast.


New Yacht Sales

We are the exclusive dealer throughout California for Jeanneau sailing yachts, the largest selling sailing yachts in the world. In 2012 we were recognized by Jeanneau as its Outstanding Dealer in North America. This followed on being recognized as its Oustanding Dealer for Customer Service in 2011. Since their introduction in 2010, Cruising Yachts has sold more Jeanneau 53 and 57 yachts than any dealer in North America. In addition, through our dealership in Marina del Rey we offer the complete line of Hunter sailing yachts. For those seeking a custom designed yacht we represent CNB Superyachts, the custom yacht division of Jeanneau / Group Beneteau.

Brokerage Sales

Cruising Yachts is the largest used / brokerage yacht broker on the West Coast based on both listings and actual sales results. We offer a large selection of pre-cruised sailing and motor yachts of many different makes and models and at almost any price. Owners entrust us with the sale of their yachts to gain the marketing advantage of our offices statewide and our extensive print and internet marketing programs. Our experienced sales team handles all aspects of the sale including advertising, sales contract documentation, financing, closing, insurance and title transfer. With our combination of new and pre-cruised yachts, we can provide the thrill of yacht ownership to anyone regardless of the size of their budget.


Our Sales Team

One of the most enjoyable aspects of dealing with Cruising Yachts is the sales professionals you will meet. Most of the members of our sales team have been involved with yachts in one way or another for their entire lives and are passionate about sailing. They are a wealth of sound, experienced advice and a great resource for anyone considering the purchase of a yacht. They truly enjoy meeting our customers and helping them find the yacht that fits their needs and their budget.
