60-Year Yachting Heritage

Bluenose Yacht Sales is a deliberately small crew of experienced, like-minded sailors and power boaters. Passion for boating and an eye for finer boats is engrained in each of us, and it is evident that we love what we do! There are no “sales guys” at Bluenose Yachts; we all have equity partnership opportunities based upon results, and our clients notice the difference. We are more than a team, we are friends that love boating, and having fun with great people is a key objective while learning from each other so we can best serve our clients. We work together, we race together, we have fun together, and we want you to have the same experience.

Avoid Middle Management Hassles

There is no such thing as middle management. As a Bluenose Yacht Sales broker you won’t need to hassle with multiple levels of management, annoying office politics, or delays associated with several layers of bosses. Bluenose brokers enjoy clearly defined roles, easy closing processes, and direct contact with all staff. We get things done together.

New Boat Opportunities

As a new boat dealer, Bluenose Yacht Sales enjoys the benefits of representing many new boat lines and a variety of brokerage boats. Our job is to find the right boat for every client, regardless if it might be new, brokerage or co-brokerage.

Take Advantage of Competitive Advantages

As a Bluenose broker, you can take advantage of Bluenose’s competitive advantages, including our ability to take in trades, proprietary marketing solutions, international advertising, and other confidential strategies that are unique to Bluenose Yacht Sales.

No Drama

Corporate Values & Company Culture is important. Bluenose Yacht Sales carefully chooses brokers that are a good fit with our current team and culture. Bluenose’s culture tends to attract yacht brokers that are hard working, have initiative, integrity, are easy to work with, and enjoy a winning team. Bluenose strongly believes professionals working together dramatically improves quality of life and reduces stress and drama in the office, which leads to more sales for everyone.

Enjoy a Pay Increase With Larger Commissions

Bluenose recognizes that marketing – no matter how good it might be – only provides a portion of yacht brokerage activity. Most yacht owners make their buying or selling decision based on the person, as well as the firm. Our sales staff spends countless hours on research, engaging in honest conversation, and giving advice rooted in integrity to build trust and confidence with a yacht owner for a long term relationship.

Many closings will be a direct result of your hard work and personal investments you’ve made with faithful clients over the years. Bluenose provides a simple and fair commission structure to reward you for your years of dedication with existing clients. This commission structure applies to all closings generated that are independent of Bluenose marketing – even applying to new clients you meet on the docks, and referrals from friends and existing clients.

We have one of the best rewarding commission schedules in the industry and intend to maintain that philosophy.

I look forward to your inquiry,

Glenn Walters
