About Bob

My name is Bob Sherman. Whether you are buying or selling, I want you to have a great boating experience! I would like to to earn your business as your Yacht Broker. This is not unlike a job interview, so here is my background:

I started in Yacht Sales in 1987. I was a top producer at several of the better San Diego brokerages for 14 years, learning from the best of the best. I obtained my Broker’s license and started “YachtSource” in 2001. With over 30 years experience and hundreds of transactions to date, I have maintained an excellent reputation as one of the “good guys” in the industry. I sell boats all over the continent. Whether buying or selling, I can put this knowledge and experience to work for you!

A native San Diegan, I grew up in a sailing family, and sailing has been a passion my whole life. I started teaching at the age of 18, and became a USCG licensed Captain in 1982, at the age of 21. I hold a 100-ton Master’s Certificate,and regularly use my license for corporate charter regattas. I am qualified to teach on sail or power boats. As a former Realtor with Coldwell Banker, I have enhanced training and skills that are parallel to the Yacht Brokerage industry. I am an avid scuba diver, and owned a 38 foot sailboat for six years. While I now sell more power boats than sail, sailing and sailboat racing remains my passion.

I am a member in good standing with the California Yacht Broker’s Association, which has high ethical standards. I utilize the CYBA contracts in my transactions, which offer the best protection for my clients. I regularly attend CYBA legal seminars to keep current on the latest issues and concerns.

I will provide you with the highest level of service, before, during, and after the sale. I want to share my expertise, and assist you making sound, educated decisions. If you are looking for a yacht broker who is friendly, honest, hard working, knowledgeable and enthusiastic, you need look no further. I encourage you to explore the additional links on my website, which you may find quite useful…especially to San Diego sailors and boaters!

Bob will give you his full attention, and devote his considerable skill and knowledge to help you accomplish your goals. Bob will help you with every aspect, from viewing, comparing, advertising, dealing with lenders, marinas, insurance companies, documenting and even maintaining, remodeling and repair. We bought our current 62’ yacht through Bob. We were so impressed with his skills and knowledge, we selected him to sell our 48 footer, which he promptly did in only 2 months. If we sell or buy in the future, I will use Bob Sherman of YachtSource and would highly recommend him to anyone!”
