Visit Us at Our Corporate Headquarters in Annapolis

The Atlantic Cruising Yachts corporate headquarters is conveniently located just over the bridge from Annapolis City Dock in Eastport. As one of the top Fountaine Pajot and Dufour dealers, it only seemed fitting to have an office in the “Sailing Capital of the World.”

On our docks, you will see an array of new and gently used Fountaine Pajot sailing catamarans, Fountaine Pajot motor yachts, and Dufour sailing monohulls available for you to step aboard – or to book for your next charter vacation next door at Waypoints Annapolis.
