MEET RRYS

Reef Runner Yacht Sales is a full service, licensed and bonded Florida yacht brokerage.  We enjoy boating and our brokers have years of experience in power and sail boating.  Regardless of whether you are a seasoned  veteran or just joining the boating community, we take a professional and individual approach to your boating interests, needs, and wants.  

 

If you want to list a vessel with us, we’ll do the research and give you a report on your vessel's value, its best selling price, and what your competition is, all free of charge.  

 

If you want to buy a boat, we’ll sit down and spend quality time with you to better understand how you plan to use your vessel so as not to waste your time on listings which don't fit your needs or budget. 

 

Give us a try and we guarantee you won’t be disappointed.
