We've Got Your Boat...since 1971


Sailboats Northeast help me sell one boat and upgrade to another. They provided terrific advice about the pros and cons of various boats, and succeeded in finding the right one for me—and at the right price, too. I’ve recommended them to a number of friends and everyone of them sings their praises just as loudly.

Adele and I have owned three boats in my lifetime - a Dufour 35, a Baltic 38 and an X40. I bought each through Sailboats Northeast. In each case, Sailboats Northeast was terrific in helping me locate and purchase the right boat for me

 I have purchased three boats from Sailboats Northeast. In each instance they were a great asset . They were very patient with my boat search and always found me the 'right boat'.....and in turn, found a buyer for my current boat.

I could not imagine buying a boat from anyone else - Sailboat Northeast has been invaluable.

Working with Sailboats Northeast is a sincere pleasure.  We first met Paul 14 years ago, when we first moved to Marblehead and we only had a vague idea of the type of cruising sailboat we desired.  Paul showed us many different brands and models in the low 40’ range until we focused in on the J/boat line.  From there Paul set up many appointments to view the available J/44 and J/42’s on the market.  We finally settled on a J/42 in NY but by the time we jumped on it, it had been sold. Nevertheless Paul advised us to put in a “backup offer” and after a few days the original deal fell through and we got the boat!   Paul and Sailboats Northeast were the key to securing that deal for us.  And their support did not end there, as they helped us find our bearings in Marblehead Harbor and a boat yard for winter storage late in the season.  More than 10 years later Paul helped us sell our J/42 and upgrade to a J/46

As beginners, we were nervous about buying our first sailboat.  As luck would have it, Sailboats Northeast was our first stop because they were advertising a sailboat we were interested in viewing.  They sat with us, asking pertinent questions and then took us to view a couple of boats.  None of those boats were “the one” so we continued our search.  Due to our inexperience, we let the next couple of advertisements dictate which broker we used (these other brokers were impatient with our lack of boating knowledge and most of them didn’t even accompany us to view the boats).  We quickly realized our mistake and went back to Sailboats Northeast.
Sailnoats Northeast patiently showed us numerous boats over the next several months.  They made us feel that it was important to them to help us find the sailboat that was perfect for us.  Thanks to Paul, we eventually found our sailboat.  We would highly recommend Sailboats Northeast because to them you’re not “just a customer” you’re a fellow sailor (no matter what your skill set).   Top quality customer service is what Sailboats Northeast is all about.
