Yacht Brokers Needed!

Miami Yacht ShowMariner’s Yacht & Ship Brokerage, Inc. offers growth, independence and flexibility in a rewarding career as a Yacht Broker. Mariner’s is expanding to increase our national footprint. Now you could become a part of our professional team recognized throughout the industry.

Ever think you might be selling a 200′ yacht in Chicago, Australia, Mexico, Charleston or Miami? How about you becoming the “Dream Maker” for a family selling their boat so they can upgrade to a more comfortable yacht to satisfy their needs.

As a yacht broker you have a prestigious position that carries a great deal of ethical obligation. Clients trust you as their yacht broker for professional assistance finding the right buyer and in the shortest amount of time. Clients trust brokers to insure they pay the right price for the right boat.

We like our brokers to join prestigious professional organizations such as the California Yacht Brokers Association, Yacht Brokers Association of America, The Florida Yacht Brokers Association.  You will also participate in local and national boat shows.

As the sales manager of a very expensive and emotional asset you will be trained in the proper marketing, analysis, and financial considerations a seller and buyer must know to get the best deal at the right time. You will be a powerful consultant to the owner.

With more and more people getting into boating, and more moving up or down in size, they need assistance from a professional.


Some of the positions we are looking to fill:

  • Managing Yacht Broker

  • Regional VP & Yacht Broker

  • Local Yacht Brokers

You will:

  • Be able to set and work your own schedule
  • Ability to work from your home office
  • Be contacting leads provided by Mariner’s

You need to have:

  • Organizational skills
  • Presentation skills
  • Networking skills
  • Ability to follow specific closing procedures
  • Ability to adhere to a High Code of Ethics

Being optimistic, people oriented, demanding excellence in your career, and a desire to help people is important. Selling skills and negotiation skills are helpful. A customer relationship orientation is critically important. Think of this as a lifestyle and not a job.

The industry is one of the last lucrative industries left in the world. It is almost impossible to get in, unless you have years of experience and a book of business.

We provide those without that book of business the opportunity to get into the industry by entering our business development courses and using the services we provide to get to a level of a 20 year veteran within months. You can work from your home office, or if you prefer, you can open a “Store Front” in a marina.

You live your work. Your office is the docks. Meeting with boat owners and attending the world’s largest boat shows in Ft. Lauderdale, Miami, Palm Beach, San Diego, Newport Beach, Seattle, Newport RI and Annapolis is a benefit many in the industry only dream about.
