About the Chesapeake Yacht Center

Chesapeake Yacht Center was formed by two boaters with decades of boating and cruising experience on the Chesapeake Bay.

After years and years of buying and running boats and many beverages shared complaining about the boat buying, servicing, and entire ownership experience, we decided to do something about it.

Chesapeake Yacht Center is very different from your traditional boat dealer or broker. We offer a boutique experience: a white-glove service from shopping, settlement, delivery, maintenance and warranty!

First, when you purchase a Prestige Yacht or Austin Parker Yacht from Chesapeake Yacht Center, you get a full two-year bow to stern warranty, complimentary weekly boat washes for the first season of ownership, an iPad with a VesselVanguard membership which gives you access to every .pdf manual for the vessel. We also have two full-time transient slips available for our customers at the Chesapeake Bay Hyatt Resort and Marina located in Cambridge, Maryland.

There are several things besides our passion and understanding of Chesapeake Bay and Mid-Atlantic boating that we do differently. We know how valuable a weekend on the water is to you and your family with the short season we have here. Our commitment to warranty service is absolute. Our first priority is getting you out on the water as fast as possible. We don’t turn wrenches on cash work before we service our warranty customers, which means your ability to use and enjoy your yacht comes first.

Over the past years we have delivered many new and brokerage yachts to so many excited customers. These families are examples of our yachting family’s growth and a unified belief that things should be done differently.

We ask that if you are in the market for a new or used boat to please reach out to us so that we can show you our unique style. If you are interested in buying a brokerage yacht or listing your yacht for sale, we encourage you to learn more about our concierge white-glove brokerage program that includes de-cluttering, staging, detailing, professional photos and enhanced marketing and listings throughout the United States and overseas.

When you ask about CYC and our service and sales experience you will be impressed among the Chesapeake Bay boating community. We have built a name for ourselves around the principal of treating boaters how they want to be treated when they are sold to, delivered and serviced because we were boaters and were fed up with the way other folks handled our business. We set out to do things better than the rest. We have hired nothing but the best. Our customer support department is 7 days a week and we are available at any time to our customers, not just Monday through Friday.

We look forward to working with you and getting you out on the water!
