We have a number of really fine, sought-after boats currently being prepared to to be listed with us this Spring. So if you are looking, please contact us, so we can find you that perfect boat. Please fill out the form.


Working in the different regions, we constantly see a difference between a 'Florida' boat and a 'North East' or 'Great Lakes' boat. Cold water boats typically have been used very lightly for at most six months out of the year, and are completely out of the water for the remainder of the time. This means the anti-fouling, the bottom paint and the gel coat are far better preserved; the varnish and furnishings not harmed by the excessively hot sun and UV rays; and most importantly - we see far fewer engine hours for any given year.

So we always recommend that Florida buyers contact Essex Yacht Sales. An 'older' northern boat can offer great value compared with a 'younger' southern boat.
