Our Personal Mariner Program

At Castaways we are committed to the encouragement of proficiency in navigation and seamanship, the managing and handling of yachts and to promoting good fellowship between our members and the yachting community.

Castaways Yacht Club offers a Personal Mariner Program. Our Personal Mariner Program is designed to address many of the aspects of boating. If you have any questions or boating needs, please contact us so that one of our personal mariners can provide assistance.

Our services include:

Guidance Through the Entire Pre-owned Boat Buying or Selling Process

We offer a wide selection of used boats for sale and used yachts for sale which have been enjoyed by their prior owners. We are conveniently located in Westchester County, New Rochelle, New York where some of these pre-enjoyed boats and yachts can be viewed locally. In addition, through our extensive yacht brokerage network, we can find you a pre-owned boat or pre-owned yacht located anywhere.

We can also assist you when it comes time to sell your used boat or used yacht. We utilize aggressive marketing strategies to ensure your used boat or used yacht gets the maximum exposure to potential buyers. We are one of the select few who are featured on Yachtworld’s homepage which is viewed by thousands of potential buyers and sellers every day.

We offer special storage rates for boats that are listed for sale with us. There is a limited amount of storage space available for listed vessels – contact us for details.

We offer new boats for sale and new yachts for sale. We specialize in the preparation and delivery of new boats and new yachts. Call us today to inquire boats and yachts that are immediately available for delivery and to schedule a showing with your Personal Mariner.

Having a new boat constructed is a memorable experience. Our Personal Mariner can coordinate the relationship between you and the factory building your boat; you will be able to specify the boat to your personal preference and visit the factory during the construction of your new boat or yacht!

Contact us today with regard to new boat sales and new yacht sales; we can even help you secure a brand new jet-ski or inflatable tender!


If you are purchasing a new or pre-owned vessel, or are interested in refinancing your current boat loan, your Personal Mariner, who is an expert in obtaining vessel financing and boat loans, will contact you to discuss your boat financing or yacht financing needs.


Don’t be complacent when it comes to your insurance coverage! It’s always a good idea to “shop” your insurance coverage. Your Personal Mariner, who is an expert in boat insurance, will contact you to answer any questions that you may have about your current policy.

Documentation and Registration

Our team of Personal Mariners includes experts in the complicated US Coast Guard Documentation process. This paperwork can be confusing and time consuming but your Personal Mariner knows how to get it done! We also specialize in state boat registration and are familiar with the various state boat sales tax requirements!

Captain’s Services

We offer yacht captain services. Our team of licensed boat captains and yacht captains, your Personal Mariner, can pilot your boat for you for the day or weekend so that you can relax! They can deliver your boat from New York to Florida or to the Bahamas where you can take part of or the entire trip with them or meet the boat when it arrives at its destination. We have also arranged excursions to go whale watching, an amazing experience. Contact us to learn more about boat captain services!

Basic Navigation Training

Today’s sophisticated boat electronics, chart plotter, radar, etc. are wonderful, but what if half way through your trip they stop working? It happens! For the safety of your vessel and all on board it is always prudent to plan your trip on a paper chart. Contact one of our Personal Mariners to learn how it’s done.

Choosing Electronics and Orientation

Your Personal Mariner can guide you through the “maze” of choosing your yacht electronics, getting them properly installed, and training you on their use. We can inform you of the latest in technology and help you custom fit any type of navigation system to your boat or yacht. Our Personal Mariner will ensure that your navigation system is user-friendly! Your Personal Mariner can advise you concerning the many top brands on the market, such as Furuno, Raymarine, Simrad, FLIR and KVH.

Yacht Club Reciprocity

Castaways has been a member of the Yachting Club of America for over 40 years. Contact one of our Personal Mariners for assistance in reciprocity between Castaways and other yacht clubs.
