Sierra Boat specializes in the professional brokerage of Antique and Classic Wooden Boats. We have the largest inventory of wooden runabouts on the West Coast. Because of our 50+ years of experience with wooden boat restoration and repair, we understand the idiosyncrasies of representing and selling Antique and Classic Boats.
We are also licensed with the California Department of Boating and Waterways for yacht brokerage and sales and are members of the California Yacht Brokers Association. This assures that be you a buyer or a seller, you will be treated in a professional and ethical manner.
Many of the boats we sell have been with Sierra Boat for a long time and we have comprehensive knowledge of the boats as well as a history of past work performed on them. This gives us the ability to represent the boats accurately. Our boats have for the most part been professionally maintained and restored and we seek out listings for boats that have had only professional work done on them.
Once a customer has focused on a particular boat to buy, a deposit is taken and we arrange for a sea trial. This is a very important part of how we do business because ultimately, the boat must perform to the buyer’s expectations. It also is an opportunity for us to sort out any problems with the boat.
If desired, we can also arrange for a survey of the boat by an accredited marine surveyor. Herb Hall, President/ Broker
