A pleasure to meet you.


Hi, I'm Daniel Hoffmann and I am a Licensed Yacht & Ship Broker and member of the IYBA in the State of Florida. Officially, I have 12 years in the industry, 9 of those as one of the top producers at United Yacht Sales, the largest privately held yacht brokerage in the world. I also worked for MarineMax, the largest publicly traded boat & yacht dealer in the United States.

It is because of this success that I am proud to announce the Grand Opening of BLUE ISLAND YACHTS LLC with a new downtown office located at 700 S. Rosemary Ave. in the heart of West Palm Beach at the newly renovated Rosemary Square.

I have helped my clients and friends buy, sell and manage many boats in my career ranging from 11' tenders to 120+ Motor Yachts.

Blue Island Yachts specializes in beautiful listings, industry leading marketing technology, professional photography & drone video, along with dedicated, veteran closing agents to provide one thing: PROVEN results.

*Experience counts!* I've been around boats since I could walk and have tons of experience with hundreds of hours logged in operation & detailed, intimate working knowledge of Sea Ray, Contender, Lazzara, Galeon, Boston Whaler, Azimut, Regulator, Marlow, Marquis, Hatteras and Viking boats along with a good working knowledge of most of the larger yachts. Chances are I've physically been on any make & model of boat you currently own or are looking to purchase. I have visited most of the boat manufacturers in Florida & the Eastern United States and have optioned several 75'+ vessels for clients (who are now friends). Sound advice, genuine help, and I always do the right thing. I have an extensive network of professionals who I trust and can truly provide headache-free service.

Currently, I live in West Palm Beach with my wife Ana, and son Andrew who is now 5. I have lived in several places including Clearwater, Vero Beach, Tampa, New York, Capetown, South Africa & Nashville but I've mostly been in the Palm Beach & surrounding area since I was eleven. Absolutely love South Florida and grew up fishing, diving & of course boating all along. Graduate of PBAU and for 12 years I owned my own company started from scratch, sold it, and came back to one of my first loves, the ocean. I enjoy what I do so much, that I would do nothing else. Please call.... I genuinely look forward to helping you with your boat!
