United Yacht Sales, one of the largest, independently owned yacht brokerage groups in the world, has opened its third and newest office in the Pacific Northwest on Bainbridge Island.
The waterfront-located office at Eagle Harbor Marina is operated by Kitsap County native Rick Hoffman, who joined United Yachts’ worldwide staff of over 150 independent professional yacht brokers in 2011, when the firm first opened their doors in the Pacific Northwest.
Hoffman reflects on what this means for the locals, “This is an exciting time for boaters in the Pacific Northwest,” Hoffman explains. “Whether it’s a new buyer looking to purchase their first boat or an experienced boat owner looking to move up, the options have never been more plentiful.” He continues, “We look forward to a longstanding commitment and community building in an area I love and call home.”
United Yachts’ Pacific Northwest locations—Seattle, Vancouver, British Columbia, and now Bainbridge Island—are part of their worldwide fleet of over 25 offices in the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Bahamas. “Our goal is to provide world-class service, premium inventory, and state of the art tools to a region that has been largely underserved until now,” says Hoffman. “We believe our new office will fill an important void for both boat buyers and sellers of not only Bainbridge Island, but the Kitsap and Olympic peninsulas.”
