You will notice the quality of the marketing photos and video content for each listing is our highest priority.


City Yachts has a reputation for dealing honestly and fairly with our customers. We are proud to be regarded as one of the most professional and knowledgeable yacht sales on the West Coast. 

City Yachts is managed by Christine Kaplan, who with her husband Paul have been involved in the marine business since 1972.

Always a family business, 2005 marked the start of the next generation.  Daughter Erica joined her Dad, Paul, and our business partner Ken Keefe, in Pt. Richmond at our boat yard Keefe Kaplan Maritime, Inc.  (KKMI).  In 2007 daughter Sarah joined City Yachts managing the yacht sales and fuel dock in San Francisco.  In 2013 during the 34th America's Cup Erica's husband, Nick Deuyour left a decade in the Mortgage industry to join his family and sales team at City Yachts. His vibrant youth and advertising background helps push the envelope for digital marketing- bringing this Mom and Pop shop into the 21st Century.                                              

Our boat-loving staff has cruised and raced in the Pacific, Atlantic and Caribbean in everything from dinghies to maxi boats.               

Our experienced brokers are equipped with all the tools to help you find the yacht for which you're searching. City Yachts subscribes to the Yachtworld multiple listing service, and is a long-standing member of the California Yacht Brokers Association. Over the last 45 years we have also maintained a solid reputation with local print advertisers and yacht brokers alike.          

City Yachts have imported boats from Slovenia, Sweden, Finland, England, Canada, South Africa, Taiwan, New Zealand, and Australia. We have represented some of the best boat builders in the business. We have sold motor and sail boats from 8' to 180'. If it floats, we have probably have sold it -- and if we haven't, we know someone who has first-hand.
