The History of Atlantic Yacht & Ship

Best Yacht BrokersBack in June of 1959, Atlantic Yacht & Ship opened with an office in Miami when South Florida was just beginning to grow into what has become the yachting capital of the world. Originally a yacht and jet brokerage, with a commercial vessel division which focused on buying and selling tugs, barges, and smalls ships, AYS identified that its specialty was selling private yachts and in 1987 we adopted the name that we use today. In the early 1990’s a catastrophic luxury tax was passed by congress which almost decimated the entire yacht brokerage industry until its repeal a year later. However, we survived and it made us into the strong and consistently successful firm that we are today. AYS continued to build and gain a noticeable market share in powerboat sales. At the time they were located on 17th Street in Fort Lauderdale (which was known as “yacht brokers row”) but in 1997 a strategic decision was made to move to our waterside location in Dania Beach, FL. This made us one of the very few yacht brokerages located in a full service marina. The vision was to give our customers a waterfront one-stop-shop with all necessary yacht services available to them as well as dockage opportunities. Sales skyrocketed and staff increased substantially with 15 sales representatives at the Dania Beach location. A natural progression in order to give our clients the best possible service was to have an in-house service facility and in 2004 we opened AYS Yacht Services below our headquarter office. From major repairs to basic services such as captaining and wash downs, we are now able to be in control of service situations and offer our clients good deals on competent labor. Sunseeker BrokersWe continued to grow and we now have offices in three states and in Italy and we continue to grow because of our honest and trustworthy approach to international yacht sales. We are authorized new Sunseeker dealers and are one of the largest pre-owned Sunseeker brokerages in the world. These days, we have over 40 sales representatives and support staff. Over the past 53 years we have grown from a humble four-person operation on 17th street in Fort Lauderdale to a global operation. We have grown along with the industry and are experienced in all aspects of yachting. Our rich history and track record in customer service are second to none which makes us excited to continue to grow for another 50 years!
