BBS Brokerage

While brokerage is not our main focus, we do offer a limited inventory of classic boats and special vessels. In most cases, the vessels we represent have been maintained here at Ballentine's Boat Shop or are of special quality, design or history.

Our listings, both sail and power, cover a wide range of styles and abilities. From small, classic daysailers to capable offshore passagemakers. After more than 40 years in the industry, we have the experience and knowledge to help buyers and sellers through the process and to help our vessels find the right next caretakers.
