Welcome to Sandeman Yacht Company

About the Sandeman Yacht Company

Barney Sandeman

Whether you have arrived here for the first time, seeking to discover the joys of owning such a glorious vessel, or are returning for a regular fix of beauty and style, we hope you will find something to savour. You may already distinguish a William Fife cutter from a John Alden Schooner, or perhaps you have been enchanted by the colour of warm sunlight glinting across acres of achingly beautiful varnished teak. Whatever the reason, we invite you to share our knowledge and love of beautiful boats.

Our aim with this site is to inform, enthuse and perhaps even entertain any of you with an interest in the joys of owning and sailing heritage, vintage and classic yachts or motor yachts and we imagine that as you are here you are looking for something beyond the norm. Perhaps you have fallen out of love with the ubiquitous modern yacht, are looking to write a chapter in the history of a famous craft, or seeking to regain a childhood memory. The yachts on our pages are capable of satisfying all these needs and more.

During the time you spend here, we hope you become aware also of the depth of feeling and passion that we have for classic yachts of every type - along with their histories. The yachts you will find depicted within these pages come in a variety of styles, sizes and ages but what ties them together is their innate beauty and ultimately that they contain some 'magic' quality. Such yachts are at the heart of everything that Sandeman Yacht Company does and has done, through many years of specialising in the brokerage of classic and heritage yachts.

Whether a museum piece, a well used friend of the family, a runabout or an elegant dream yacht, we have unparalleled knowledge of what is needed and moreover the desire to bring about a happy transaction leading to many years of fun-filled ownership.

As one of the World's most respected specialist classic yacht brokers with every transaction we maintain equal respect for buyer, seller and yacht. Our aim is to promote harmonious partnerships between yachts and their owners for the benefit of all; not least the yachts themselves deserving as they usually are of ongoing caring ownership.

If you are looking to fulfil a long-standing dream or just to get the family on the water with elegance, whether you need a racing thoroughbred, a historic artefact or a cosy cruiser we look forward to giving you every help in achieving your desire.
