Established in 1953 by Lawrence Hartge, Annapolis Yacht Sales was founded on the principles of integrity, professionalism, exceptional service and unparalleled knowledge within the boating industry. Nearly 70 years later, we continue to uphold the standard set by our predecessors as the leading yacht sales company across the Chesapeake Bay.
“Our successes are directly tied to the top-tier boat brands we represent, our team of employees and the level of customer service they bring from start to finish, and our customers – past, present and future – who will always be a part of the AYS family.” - Rob Tashioff, CEO & Principal
Selecting the new or used sailboat or powerboat that fits your lifestyle is only the first step. At AYS, we take you through the entire acquisition process - from finding the best financing and insurance to filing documents and registering your title. Our on-site service team - the best and most experienced in the mid-Atlantic - readies your boat, teaches you how to operate it and is available to address any issues you may have going forward.
Our employees are one of the mainstays of our success - some have been with us for 20+ years. We treat our team members like family ensuring everyone has the support and tools needed to do their job and achieve personal successes. The in-depth knowledge our team brings to every interaction is invaluable and we go above and beyond to make the boat buying or selling process as seamless as possible for our customers.
