My Present

My name is Wes Sanford, and I sell yachts to and for some of the most successful individuals and families in the world. I prefer data over opinion and function over form, but it’s important to embrace the relevant intangibles of yacht ownership such as brand, style, and aesthetic. Yacht ownership is often less an exercise in logic than it is a passion for the water and a reward for an exceptionally successful life. So, you can enjoy the latter while I manage everything behind the scenes or beneath the surface.

My Past

I graduated from Stanford University with a degree in Quantitative Economics and began my business career as a financial analyst in the aerospace industry before transitioning to yachting in 1994. I became a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer, traveling and living in Costa Rica, Honduras, Mexico and the Virgin Islands. I worked for many years as a charter yacht captain with a 500-ton USCG Master’s License and have been working as a licensed yacht broker since 2004.


My Future

I aspire to do more adventurous travel around the globe.


My Mottos

Quality is not an accident.

Success doesn’t come easy.

Happiness must be intentional.


My Outside-office Life

I spend my time with family and friends around the water or in the mountains. Wake surfing, snow skiing, salmon fishing, sailing, hiking, paddle boarding, golf and pickleball are just a few things I enjoy in my free time.
