Bluewater Brings Yacht Service to Downtown Annapolis

75-ton Travelift Arrives at the South Annapolis Yacht Centre

ANNAPOLIS, MD - Bluewater Yacht Companies is now one step closer to bringing yacht service to customers in the thriving boating community of Downtown Annapolis. Just weeks after expanding the company’s sales operations into the newly developed South Annapolis Yacht Centre, Bluewater brought in a 75-metric-ton travelift to set the tone for their service operation. Their new lift is one of the largest in the region, and can raise and move yachts up to approximately 80 feet in length or 165,000 lbs.

Bluewater made the decision to bring service to Maryland in an effort to compliment the constant growth of their sales operation. Bluewater Yacht Sales has been built on the backbone of service, and with eight Mid-Atlantic locations, seven new boat lines, and hundreds of brokerage listings, they know that quality service is critical to customer satisfaction and continued growth. According to General Manager Wyatt Lane, “This is a huge step forward for Bluewater in the Annapolis market. We are excited to finally bring world class service to our Maryland customers.”

The Bluewater service facilities are set to officially begin operation in the Winter of 2021 and will initially provide concierge support for sales customers. Their office and service bays will be located on the first floor of the South Annapolis Yacht Centre facility. For images and video of the new travelift and offices, please visit our Dropbox.

Founded in 1968, Bluewater Yacht Sales is one of the East Coast’s largest yacht sales companies, with nine locations spreading from Maryland to Florida. The company was expanded in 2012 when North Carolina based Jarrett Bay Yacht Sales merged with Virginia’s Bluewater Yacht Sales. Bluewater now proudly represents the finest sportfish, motoryacht and center console brands in the world, including Viking, Jarrett Bay, Princess, Regulator, Valhalla, Sabre and Back Cove.
