Ardell Yacht & Ship Brokers was incorporated in 1958 with sales offices and marina in Newport Beach, California. In 1962 owner Don Haskell recruited brokers Craig Cadwalader, Tom Corkett, Dennis Moran and Jim Elliott. All are still active full time brokers with the Company today.
In 1971 Ardell Yacht & Ship Brokers opened its Fort Lauderdale office and soon thereafter built a state of the art facility in the heart of "The Yachting Capital of the World". Over the next 40 years many hundreds of yacht owners purchased and sold their boats with the help of Ardell's veteran sales force based on both coasts of the U.S.
Yacht brokerage is the heart of our business. We provide advice to yacht owners on pricing and marketing to insure the earliest sale at market price. We assist yacht buyers in choosing quality vessels that really work for their individual and family requirements. Choosing the right boat, of course, is all important when it comes time to sell.
Over the years we have assisted our clients with new yacht purchases and custom build projects in Holland, Germany, Italy, Turkey as well as a number of shipyards in the U.S.A.
Our many years of experience together with our worldwide contacts and relationships with builders, shipyards, co-brokers and industry professionals are key to providing sound advice to our clients.
