We work with you to understand your family's wants and needs, establish agreed-upon criteria for a targeted search process, build "hit list" of opportunities matching agreed-upon criteria, assess a fair value(s), secure a fair purchase price, coordinate sea trial(s) and survey(s), arrange financing and insurance, relay facts and insights to allow for well-informed decision making and ensure the process is professional, expedient, and as stress-free as possible.


When we work for you on the buy-side, you are essentially getting all of our services for free.  Commissions will always be paid by the seller.

"Excellent and responsive broker.  Highly recommended." - David G.

"Best broker in the Chicago area...knows everything about yachts.  When the time comes to upgrade I know who I will be calling." - Luke K.

"Worked with us trying to find the right boat for our needs for a length of time.  Has total respect for what you are looking for and the pace at which you set.  We can tell they love what they do.  We now have our boat!" - Lisa G.

 "Absolutely great to work with.  Listened to my concerns while at the same time educated me about the vessels I was interested in.  Everything they said has proven to be true. They honestly went above and beyond for my family." - Mike C.

"I would highly recommend Schwartz & Co.  I worked with them to acquire our latest vessel. They made the process seamless from finding what I wanted to accepting delivery. The vessel is everything we expected and more. They were a pleasure to work with." - Adam A.


We facilitate the entire marketing process in the sale of your vessel, always focused on protecting and promoting your interests. While in certain circumstances we may represent both the buyer and you in a single transaction on an agency basis, we enjoy working with other brokers on a co-brokerage basis.

We charge a 10% commission when your vessel is sold, and all of the terms and conditions of our engagement will be specified in advance and in writing as part of a formal listing agreement.  If another broker brings a buyer to the table on a co-brokerage basis, we will agree to a commission split.

"Smooth transaction.  Thanks guys!!!" - Thomas D.

"Fantastic and highly knowledgeable about boats.  Easy to get in touch with and very responsive.  We will be back when its time to buy again." - Matt W.
