We've helped many great people achieve their boating dreams!

Headquarted in downtown Traverse City, Michigan, HarborView Yacht Sales is the Great Lake’s premier boat sales broker.  

Specializing in cruising yachts, sailboats and classic trawlers – we’ve helped many people find the boat of their dreams.  Here are some of the great things our clients have had to say about HarborView Yacht Sales.

HarborView Yacht Sales was quick to respond to all my questions and additional picture requests. My sailboat was not a high dollar boat, compared to the many newer and more expensive boats listed, but Bill treated me with respect as though I was spending $100,000 for a boat.
Don Lang
Bill, you went above and beyond what I expected of a broker. I appreciated how well you presented the boat; making sure it was clean and easy to see, as well as being very knowledgeable of all systems. I have a grey amount of gratitude to you for finding a truck driving, an insurance agent, a hull surveyor, an engine surveyor and helping with all documentation of the boat. Thank yo also, for helping us find a hotel and car rental. You helped us not only with the boat, but with every aspect of our trip.
Franklin S. Beveridge
I think that you went above and beyond what I would expect from a yacht broker or sales person especially helping me to get my boat down my new homeport. I found you very prompt and thorough with any questions I had regarding my new boat.
Jim Wasson
I had full confidence in boat broker Bill Allgaier – Within a a day or two he visited my boat at the marina where it was docked and took multiple photos of the boat. Less than a week later he had a buyer and secured a down payment the same day. The boat sold for the full asking price.

HarborView Yacht Sales provided top notch service during the purchase of our Cabo Rico 38. Bill Allgaier's professional demeanor, thorough manner, strong advocacy, and excellent customer service proved invaluable throughout the purchasing process.
Dave McGinnis
I valued your great service and will recommend you to anyone looking to sell a boat in the Traverse City area or elsewhere. You may definitely use my name.
Stephen K. Valentine

Craig Bilodeaur
My experience with Bill Allgaier was exceptional. I felt that Bill handled each aspect of the transactions in a professional manner. His prompt attention to details is beyond reproach. Next time I am listing or shopping for a boat, I will contact Bill first.
Bill Tod
The first thing I noticed about Bill was that he was not a high pressure saleman with a silky smooth FM radio sales pitch. He simply asked me what I was looking for, why I wanted the type of sailboat I did and what I had sailed before. In talking further to Bill his deep background in all types of boats became apparent.
Bob Tolpa
Thank you so very much for all your advertising of our Nordic Tug 37, for exploring potential buyers near and far and for closing the sale in an expedient manner. As our broker, Ted and I appreciate your time, effort and ultimate success.
Emma Watson
My wife Lisa and I have worked with Bill on many different levels when buying and selling boats. We have the highest respect and admiration for his exemplary skills as a yacht broker. In our interactions, Bill has always provided exceptional customer service, always going above and beyond the normal broker routine. His attention to detail and knowledge of the industry impressed us from the get-go.
Jim Favors
Dan-Cheri and I can’t thank you enough for all you did to help us make sure that this 415 was a “good bones boat”.  We’ve had a great summer with her and are looking forward to all the adventures awaiting us.  
Pete Washburn
Hi Dan, It was a pleasure meeting you and Jeff last night.  Thank you so much for such a wonderful presentation on the Great Loop…..we definitely learned a lot about the Loop and are even more excited now.
Robin
Jon-No need to worry about our excitement levels! We are eager to get out on the water. Thanks for checking in. You are going above and beyond our expectations and we're appreciative.
Greg
Great to hear from you, Dan! Thanks for taking the time to ponder the question…and for picking up on the psychological/philosophical components. That’s what makes you the right guy. That’s why you did the Loop and own a Ranger! You get it. I’ll look forward to your ideas. Thanks, again.
Mark
soooo grateful we bought THIS boat and none of the others. So thanks again Dan for finding this for us. We just keep appreciating you more and more and more. So there!!
