About Us

Our Experience Is Your Advantage

You might be surprised to hear a yacht dealer say, “We won’t sell you a yacht.” But that’s the attitude here at Orange Coast Yachts. After all, the yacht is going to be yours—not ours. So we prefer listening and understanding your needs, which is how we assist you in the purchase of your new yacht. This approach has guided our success for more than 46 years. As one of the largest dealers of NEW luxury yachts, we offer an unmatched selection of 50 to 150′ yachts.  We represent Horizon Yachts which are built in Taiwan and feature models from 56′ to 150′. Horizon is one of the largest big boat builders in the world and is the only Asian builder who is a member of Sybss the Super Yacht Association.  Expert boaters ourselves, we offer clear advantages in helping you select and customize your dream yacht. And like the solid hulls beneath us, we’ve weathered every business climate imaginable. Beyond new yachts, we offer a large selection of brokerage yachts and a marketing program second to none. As one of the largest advertisers in the Yacht Brokerage community, we have the ability to reach more buyers with key information regarding your vessel. Offering unmatched access to potential buyers, we can create more interest to expedite the sale. Please give us a call or stop by today. We’d love to help chart your course.
