About Us

Since 2000, BananaBelt Boats & Yachts in Anacortes, Washington is the Pacific Northwest’s #1 yacht brokerage to buy or sell a pre-owned motor yacht. According to soldboats.com, BananaBelt Boats & Yachts has sold more 28’ to 70’ motor yachts than any other broker in the Pacific Northwest every year for the past 14 years. We sell more because of our great selection, our unique On-Land Marina buying experience and because of our passionate team of marine professionals led by Amy Thornton and her husband Matthew. Both Amy and Matthew are Certified Professional Yacht Brokers and BananaBelt owners since 2013.

We’re a Woman-owned, Family-operated business with a convenient, easy and fun way to buy or sell a yacht. We didn’t just hang up a shingle outside some marina office and call ourselves “brokers” like the other guys. We are life-long boaters who OWN the On-Land Marina and we have all the infrastructure you’d expect including a KMI Sea-Lift to make haul-out and launches for demos easy, fast and affordable! Plus, their full time staff of marine technicians makes sure every vessel is ready to show and go BEFORE going into the water for Survey and Demonstration – just ask other brokers if they do that! 

At BananaBelt, you can step aboard every motor yacht and inspect them from bow to stern and top to bottom with ease and convenience! All our brokerage yachts are connected by stairs and walkways, making it easy to see many different types and styles in a single visit. No more driving with a broker from dock to dock and marina to marina to view just a few boats. 

When you purchase a yacht from us, you have immediate access to moorage space in our On-Land Marina.  While other marinas have 5 to 10 year waiting lists for slips, We have a slip available for you to keep your new boat in today! Put that together with our facility conveniently located to the San Juan Islands and you’re set to get the most of your cruising. 

Call us to find you that perfect yacht – even if we don’t have it, we can find it for you and represent you every step of the way. Plus, if you plan to keep the boat in Washington you can take advantage of the low 8.8% sales tax rate in Anacortes when you buy with us.

Before you list your yacht to sell with just another broker,  call and ask about the cost savings and the ease of selling your boat Out of The Water with BananaBelt Boats & Yachts.
