The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever…

Jacques Yves Cousteau

At Passage Nautical, we have lived under the spell of the sea for over 35 years, bringing boating into people’s lives who too, have fallen under its spell.  The love of the ocean and boating is what moves us in our mission of launching people’s boating dreams. We make boating accessible through our used yacht sales, boating clubs, private lessons and educational webinars.

Sellers – Reduced Cost Brokerage Services

Sellers: When you list with us, we offer an affordable option that saves you on your brokerage selling costs. It’s our RCL Program (Reduced Cost Listing Program). You can save big and have more services available to help you get the most for your boat and have an easier sales process. Our pre-sale services save you both money and time and the all to common and unnecessary re-negotiations at survey time.  Our RCL Program services have been developed from over 35 years of brokerage services and curated knowledge from thousands of transactions.   Contact us about our RCL Program. 

Buyers – Signature Services For More Buying Value

Buyers:  We pride ourselves in creating innovative, time and money saving services for used boat purchasers. Buying used is a sound direction to take with today’s high inflation that has sent new boats soaring and the reduction in trained labor and supply of quality goods.  Buying used has its own set of challenges and can be a process filled with stress and costly mistakes if you’re not in the know.

We’re here to help you avoid all the problem areas with our Signature Buyer’s Service.

You benefit from the security in knowing all our listings are pre-inspected. They go through either a presale survey or our in depth 19-Point Inspection Checklist. As a member of our Signature Buyer’s Service you get discounts on surveys, haulouts, labor, purchases and more. Our extensive list of buyer services and vendors has been curated from 35 years of brokerage experience and delivering the highest customer care in the industry.

As a Private Client in our Signature Buyer’s Service, your benefits begin immediately and last through the lifetime of your ownership experience.

Boating Clubs

If you’re not ready to own, our Nautical Access Boating Clubs  provides easy and affordable boating. A one time initiation fee that covers all your training and a low monthly fee get you boating now. Our fleet boats are safe, fun and perfect for San Francisco Bay with plenty of comfort no matter the weather. We have both a powerboat club and a sailing club with low member to boat ratios.

Private Lessons

Try our private powerboat lessons for the very best foundation to learn and grow your boating skills. Our private sailing lessons include on-line education instead of classroom time to increase learning retention and time on the water.   Private lessons offer customized lesson plans and the focused attention will get you boating more quickly and with greater competency. We offer customized US Powerboating curriculum courses from one day to three day for powerboats. Private, customized courses are offered for sailing with online classroom learning.  Obtain your certification for international charter certification accepted worldwide.

Charter A Yacht

For those special occasions, or times that you just want to experience the magic of sailing or powerboating on San Francisco Bay, our skippered charter fleet brings this opportunity to anyone.  Charter a yacht for a half day or full day. Our boat rentals are flexible and customized to your party. Bring you own food and beverages or let us cater your yacht charter. Our charter fleet of luxury yachts offer lots of options for creating the perfect experience for any occasion when you charter or rent a yacht.

Boating Education

Check out our free monthly educational webinars on a variety of topics, from Your Boat As A Business to How To Buy a Used Boat and our seasonal webinars on marine surveys, anchoring and places to cruise in the Bay. Get answers to your pressing questions like what to look for when buying a used boat and how to buy a used boat in California or anywhere in the world.

Boat Store – Clothing & Products That Sustain Ocean Health & Community

We’re committed to lowering the amount of plastic used in this world and the health of the planet and its inhabitants. Reducing single use plastic and cleaning up the oceans are our priorities.  Our BOATING STORE features products and companies with the same commitment. Please visit the store and support our efforts. 1% of our sales goes to our list of ocean savings charities and the companies making sustainable products.

We look forward to launching your boating dreams and seeing you on the water!
