25 years ago, American Marine were amongst the first to embrace the internet in the yacht market and use it to bring buyers and sellers together across the Atlantic (as in those days, the market was mostly limited to Europe). Since 1992 we have exported thousands of boats into six continents and onto parts of the world you would never imagine. We were exporting boats from the US way before it became "fashionable" and everyone else tried to imitate our services. Global Yacht Sales has always been our forte.


American Marine have been the industry leader in the logistics of moving boats around the globe and into different markets since 1992. We offer the most complete and professional import/export services, from; Shrink-wrap, cradles, CE certification, to US transport or Freight Forwarding Worldwide. Our experience and reputation gives us the opportunity not just to provide our International customers with the confidence and services they deserve but this networking opens up new markets to our local customers that other companies just don't have.
