Purchase a Boat

We take great pleasure in finding just the right boat for you and your family. By taking the time to discuss your needs and desires we can then fine tune the search using both online resources and our many contacts within the yacht industry. First time boat owners may not know for sure what they are looking for, they just know that they want to be a part of the boating lifestyle.

We can help by discussing the pros and cons of different boats.

Purchase Process

The purchase process protects both buyer and seller, is required by the California Yacht Broker Association, and has been followed in California for decades. California is one of only two states in the country (Florida is the other) that require yacht brokers to be licensed and bonded.

In Contract: The contract will provide a buyer with certain contingencies of sale. If any of the contingencies are not satisfactory the buyer can terminate the contract and receive return of their full deposit.

Slip Transfers

Obtaining a slip in Santa Barbara is complicated and must be done by an official “slip permit transfer”. This may be accomplished by either acquiring the vessel already in the slip or first transferring an interest of an incoming vessel to a slip permittee name and later taking over the permit. The slip will have an additional cost paid to the slip permittee and a transfer fee will be paid to the city to add/remove names to the slip permit. There is also an annual possessory interest tax paid on the market value of the slip.

This process is tedious and involves contractual agreements, escrow funds, powers of attorney, specific vessel measurements and adherence to exact city procedures. 805 Yacht Sales can handle all of this for you.
