We have high standards and take pride in customer service.

Our brokerage division accounts for approximately 12% of our annual gross sales. Divided by QPS Marine and QPS Marine Ships, we cover the market on two sales fronts – large privately-owned yachts and commercial ships.

We customize and refit passenger ferries for clients all over the world. Our Cruise Ship Division sells retired vessels to developing cities in need of quick housing infrastructure. We have the knowledge and personnel who can navigate the international rules and regulations to effectively negotiate and close these transactions.

Our boutique brokerage approach matches the expectations of the buyer to that of the seller.

Nautical Ventures is unique from the big box brokerage firms in that we specialize in more one-on-one personalized service for both buyer and seller, thereby delivering a more satisfactory experience for all involved.

Based on our relationships with the industry’s leading marine architects and shipyards, our Project Management team can manage virtually all shipbuilding projects; from major maintenance/refit programs to the building of new vessels, anywhere in the world.

Our Vision

Overall trends in the marina industry are positive. New boat sales are on the rise, and the economy is strong. Boat show attendance continues to grow. The number of motivated owners coming through our dealerships is strong.

The Consumer Confidence Index is at a historically strong level. Interest rates remain favorable and the Dow Jones stock market has doubled since the end of 2011.

The economy remains very strong, with GDP growing well above 3 percent in the second and third quarters of 2018. We remain in the midst of what has been a good run for the marine industry, with annual growth in the 3% – 5% range and we remain cautiously optimistic these trends will continue.

Our goal is to be a single-source supplier to the broad South Florida marine marketplace and our brokerage division is one of those components.
