About Us

Here at BananaBelt Boats & Yachts Brokerage in Anacortes, Washington, we’ve come up with a unique concept in selling pre-owned motor yachts. All of our Brokerage Listings are out of the water on our 1.5 acre sales lot. We have over 40 used boats that can be viewed in our single location. No more running around from marina to marina and dock to dock!  There’s a walkway around all the boats that is very similar to a dock. From our walkway, you can access every boat in our lot! Plus, you can see the topside AND bottom of each boat when they are out of the water. With this many boats to see in one place – and with such easy access – and as we’re open 7 days a week – it’s like A Boat Show Every Day!

About Us

We were started by John and Connie Ripley in 2000, and since 2005 we’ve been the largest by-volume pre-owned motor yacht brokerage, 28’ to 60’ in the Pacific Northwest!

We Sell More Boats Than Anyone!  Call us, or just stop by and find out why!

The brokerage is now run by Amy Ripley Thornton (John and Connie’s daughter) and her husband, Matthew – who are both Certified Professional Yacht Brokers (CPYB). We also have  Matt Partna in sales, and 2 full time yard team members, Rich and Pat. Plus, on any given day you will find a number of very friendly and treat-eager dogs including Zip, Rudi or Suki. And, we own our own Sea-Lift to make haul and launches, fast and easy!

We own a KMI Sea-Lift to move boats from water to land faster and more safely than ever before. The Sea-Lift was designed for safely moving yachts ranging in size from 28′-60′. It carries boats between our launching ramp across the street and our dry land marina in just minutes.

Contact Us at (877) 588-9208 and one of our experienced brokers will be happy to further assist you with your search.
