Guaranteed Best Price, Best Service…

Fountaine-PajotLearning Center

This is not a hollow promise. It’s an expression of a sincere commitment based on a 44 year history of success.

As Jeanneau’s largest North American Dealer, and Fountaine Pajot’s largest sailboat dealer worldwide, we have developed a team of professionals that can get your boat commissioned at the lowest possible cost, but more importantly the way you want it.  Learn about commissioning done right, here.

We Guarantee the Best Price…

Because of the volume of business we do, we can guarantee you that we will meet or beat any price from any dealer on a comparable boat with the same equipment–or we’ll sweeten our offer with an additional 10% of the difference (Certain terms and conditions apply).

Keep in mind, a part of the issue for other dealers is that what they generally do is check off some boxes on the manufacturers options list. We go way beyond that and typically offer 7 pages of both local and MF options. Custom equipment, custom canvas, cabinetry, SS fabrication work the works. We can do it all with some of the finest professionals in the world, based right here in Annapolis.  (That’s why Annapolis is known as America’s Sailing Capital. We’ve developed a team of some of the best professionals in Annapolis. Some other dealers use vendors that we’ve dismissed!)

We Guarantee the Best Service…

We’re known for our custom commissioning services. We spend considerable time with you before, during and after the sale. We introduce you to the professionals who will handle getting your boat ready for your unique needs. Everyone from Ken, our project and commissioning manager who manages our team  to the service staff that has worked with us for years–we will explore every option and make you aware of the best choices.

We check you out on the use of all of the equipment–usually over a couple of days; followed up with on-going support–depending on how complicated your project. We can even help you make a video of the process; we provide extensive documentation, and celebrate your success with your new boat with a bottle of champagne.

The same team that commissioned your boat, then follows up with on-going warranty support on everything to support your  2 year, stem to stern warranty–our service manager is your one stop contact to help you where ever you are, and whatever your issue.

Comments-Customer service…

“I have bought and sold four sailboats, as well as other power boats since the early 70’s. Without a doubt, my experience dealing with you and the Bay Yacht staff including, Bobby Allen, Kris Vereen, Jim Martin, and others far exceeded my expectations. Everyone went the extra mile to meet our needs and desires, as well as our schedule.

It’s been five months since we bought the Jeanneau and to this day, your team has continued to be there for us. This is truly exceptional service! In addition to supporting our purchase of the Jeanneau, you went out of your way to make the moving (from Virginia) and listing of our old boat effortless.

I can honestly say this has been the best customer service I have ever had. Should the need ever arise, I would be happy to discuss my experience with others. You may feel free to give my contact information as a reference.”
