POP Yachts - Call for Location, FL
POP Yachts is the largest boat and yacht brokerage in America. With more than 5,000 boats for sale, we can help you find your perfect boat at YOUR price.
If you have a boat to sell, we would love to talk with you. While we can only broker vessels located where we have a local salesperson, as we like to take our own photographs and do our own inventory of all vessels, we have most of the USA covered - especially all major coastal boating areas.

The story begins in 1966 with a father and son team, Dick and Rich Thayer. They began in a small store, selling used boats and motors, repairing them, and selling some bait and tackle. They had always believed in America and that working hard always had positive results. For years they struggled forward, doing whatever they could to grow their idea, philosophy and business. No job was too big, too small or too old. As their work ethic grew, so did their business and their opportunities. Soon, their reputation grew and spread, known for doing some of the best repair work around. Premier boat and engine companies began to approach them and ask to be a part of this growing family business.
They saw a great opportunity to develope an even stronger business model, and they took on the challenge of some of these brands. As time passed, Rich grew older and had kids of his own, Richie and Rachel. He forced them, kicking and screaming to work with him on Saturdays and Holidays, instilling his work ethic into them. They are both now a large part of the business, working diligently to ever improve the business model and their relationship with their customers. The name is spreading, the reputation is growing and so is the excitement.
As Richie and Rachel develope, the business has found new borders. We have begun extending our boundaries beyond local folk lore to a worldwide market. Our marketing strategies have put us on the brink of the global frontier while still holding true to our local roots. Our solid brands, Stratos, WellCraft, Lowe, Evinrude, Mercury, Yamaha... just to mention a few, have helped in this evolution. We went from selling the bottom of the barrel to carrying the best, and with that comes our constant struggle to provide you with the best. Not only the best products, but the best possible service. We appreciate your patronage, we truly do, the entire family. Until next time.
