The brokerage business continues to grow at a rapid pace.With five full time brokers in addition to himself, Eric is proud to say we now consistently offer one of the largest selections of pre-owned boat  inventory on Boston's South Shore! Our boat turnover is high and we are constantly refreshing our inventory. How do we do this?  We have a Flagship Office located at the Hingham Shipyard Marinas, in Hingham, MA, a secondary office located at Great Bay Marine in Newington, NH and a satellite office across the water at Sunset Bay Marina in Hull, MA.

Celebrating 10 Years in Business!

Celebrating Ten Years in Business Poster Like many other ventures, Smith Yacht Sales was born from Eric's passion about boating and the Marine Industry! With his vast roledex, he quickly realized he needed to secure prime office space where he could build his team. The flagship office landed at the Hingham Shipyard Marinas which provided a destination location for prospects as well as great in-water access. Eric was welcomed to the developing location by Vinny, Donna and Cherie, our partners "in crime" downstairs!

Dana and Amy were Eric's first brokers and Jerry G quickly came aboard to support his protege! Keith added a great dimension bringing along his customers from Shoreline Aviation and Dick Ruggieri followed with his joyous personality and mechanical expertise! And this was all the first year!

Needing a little office support, Leisa soon joined the team after finding the job on Craigslist! Soon, the Website, Email Marketing and Demo Days came along with new boat lines such as Southport, Century, Patten, Metan and Albury. With all this activity our satellite offices were created. We welcomed Kyle who represented us very well out of Kittery Point Yacht Yard. We participated in Trade Shows Galore-from Newport International to Maine Homes, Boats & Harbors and everything, literally, in between! Extra hands were needed everywhere and we were lucky enough to have some fantastic interns (Charlie, Rance, John, & Abby) and summer helpers along the way, making life a lot easier for all!

Co-marketing & sales efforts continued through the years forging old friendships along and propelling them into the future- Crosby Yacht Yard & BLM- we have grown to where we are today with your help for sure.

Fast forward a few years and we now have Connie, our office mom, handling day to day office management with a forever smile and positive demeanor! Jim and his son run our thriving service department taking excellent care of our customers pre and post sale. Scott is our "go-to" broker at Great Bay Marine in New Hampshire and Dave is just a stones throw away over at Sunset Bay Marina in Hull. We have not even begun to explore all the possibilities that exist with these new Smith Yacht Sales locations! And last, but not least, we look forward to working with Todd and Dan who have recently officially joined the brokerage team and will certainly add an additional layer of knowledge and expertise to the company!

Happy New Year to all and Cheers to the future of Smith Yacht Sales!
