DH Yacht Sales - Dream Big. Whatever it Takes.

At DH Yachts, their lifetime on the water has made them experts in the marine industry. And their collective passion for the water has quickly made them one of the leading yacht brokerage companies on the East Coast. This experience, and their relationship building approach to working with clients, makes both the buying and selling of yachts a seamless process. Communication is key so they make sure you are well-informed, down to every little detail. They make sure you are comfortable with every decision so that in the end, you’ve made the right choice for your boating needs. “Chris and the team at DH Yacht Sales goes above and beyond when it comes to buying or selling a boat. He sold my boat in Cabo San Lucas and was very knowledgeable on the market of Sport fishing boats from semi-custom to Carolina boats new builds to early models. Then pointed me in the right direction to get my new boat shipped back to Cabo and managed all aspects of it until it left Florida. It is amazing to see how much better boat buying and selling can be with a team with experience.”

Whether you have your eye on a bigger boat, or just want to sell yours, DH Yacht Sales has a team of 13 experienced broker professionals dedicated to providing you expertise and guidance throughout the entire process. DH Yachts commitment to its clients is their top priority and one of their greatest assets. “Our approach to doing business attracts new clients, while existing clients continually return to us to both buy and sell boats for them,” said Chris Downey, President/Employing Broker at DH Yacht Sales. “We have our pulse on all active yacht inventory, have decades long relationships in the industry and have 3 East Coast offices. All of which gives us a distinct advantage in finding the right boat for our clients.” Several in-house team members have specific Viking expertise as well. They know the build process, the boat history and ownership, the systems, processes and functionality of all of their builds, from the 37’ model up through their 92’ yacht.

DH Yacht Sales’ specialty in the custom boat arena made their partnership with Vilano Boatworks a perfect fit. Based out of St. Augustine, Vilano is a custom sportfish builder that brings new and original designs with a commitment to the ultimate building experience for its clients. DH Yachts is the exclusive listing and brokerage company for Vilano. “Chris knows boats, he understands the client and understands the product. He is transparent and gives us true and honest feedback to make our brand better. Because of all of this, DH Yachts was a no brainer for us,” states Founder, Phillip Mahn, of Vilano Boatworks. “We are thrilled about our partnership with Vilano,” says Chris. “Both companies share similar core values and to be on the front end of what is sure to be an industry leading boat brand is exciting for our team.” DH Yachts recently added full-service boat management to their in-house offerings. This comprehensive division handles yardwork, annual and semi-annual maintenance, upfit and refit projects, new equipment installation, old equipment removal and anything else their clients may need.
