STBSP Ep, 102, Kate Dawson from Annapolis Yacht Sales

AYS Director of Operations Kate Dawson, with her Parents, former owners of the Brokerage.

Welcome to episode 102 of The Shooting The Breeze Sailing Podcast (STBSP) with guest Kate Dawson, Director of Operations at Annapolis Yacht Sales. AYS celebrated their 65th anniversary last year and continue to be a premier yacht brokerage, featuring great used power and sail boats, and more specifically interesting to our audience, brand new Beneteau Monohulls and Lagoon Catamarans. They have four sales offices around the bay, Annapolis, Kent Island, Deale, and Virginia Beach, as well as service centers in Annapolis for sailboats and Kent Island for powerboats. They can help you buy and sell quality used brokerage boats as well, and might just take in your well maintained and equipped older boat as a trade on a new one, something I wasn’t aware happened too often any longer in the boat sales marketplace. We chat about the history of the firm, some best practices and the process of buying and selling boats, her personal history with sailing, and upcoming events where you can meet and greet the AYS staff. You can check them out at their newly redesigned and updated website,
