• Brokerage Services

  • At Donovan’s Shady Harbor Marina, we go above and beyond to ensure that we can make the boat buying and selling experience simple and enjoyable.


    From experienced staff, to top-notch service, and professional connections, the knowledge and resources available to you when you partner with Donovan’s Shady Harbor Marina will make your transaction simple and smooth.


    By taking the negotiations and guesswork (and paperwork) out of your buying or selling process, you will have more time to enjoy your passion for boating.



    From finding the right boat for you, complete through the closing process, Donovan’s Shady Harbor Marina can guide you through the entire boat buying experience. From start to finish, we will listen closely to your needs to ensure that the process is simple and fun, all while ensuring that you are getting the best value for your boat.


    Partnerships with the marine industry’s top lenders offer access to boat financing at competitive rates. Our brokerage services guide you in making the initial offer, finalizing the purchase agreement, managing the registration or documentation process and everything in between.


    As a Professional Broker, we represent you in the purchase of your boat, and reduce the hazards and stresses of conducting a private transaction not involving a broker.



    Extensive marketing and visibility are just the beginning of Donovan’s Shady Harbor’s brokerage service process.


    In addition to traditional marketing techniques and MLS listing sites such as Yachtworld, iBoats and Boat Trader, our sales professionals utilize industry-specific resources to ensure that you are getting the best possible price for your boat.


    More importantly, we know that no two boats (or their owners) are alike. We will travel to your vessel to meet you and spend time on your boat to learn its features, condition, and benefits. This will help us to best showcase your boat to potential buyers as well as enable us to perform extensive and accurate research on your boat’s market value. Our access to non-public market resources gives us a better understanding of current trends, sales, and market values. Upon completion of our research, we will write a customized listing that will ensure that you are getting a fair price for your boat.


    With a focus on industry knowledge and customer satisfaction, our goal is to make the boat buying and selling process into a simple and enjoyable experience.
