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.

Affordable Brokerage Services For Buyers and Sellers

Buyers: If you’re in the market to buy a used boat, you’re in the right place. We have a large selection of used yachts for sale in California and a world-wide selection so we can source the exact boat for your needs. Our educational webinar on used boat buying helps you understand the process and takes the stress out. If you want to take delivery of a used boat in Europe or the Caribbean, we have full delivery services to facilitate your used boat purchase.
