Hi, I'm Bernie Jakits. After 20 years of owning and running a successful brokerage in Annapolis, my partner Kate Christensen and I have merged our company with David Walters Yachts. We are happy and excited to be a part of something bigger and continue to live our passion that started long ago. When I was an engineer in the aerospace industry I had lots of time to read every sailboat review and follow every development in the industry. I dreamed of one day owning a distinctly different brokerage firm and it all came true when in 1997 I started RogueWave Yacht Sales It came out of a passion for the sea and love for the beautiful vessels that sail on her. My vision was to create a new kind of brokerage dedicated to honesty and integrity and desire to help people be successful and achieve their bluewater sailing vision. Kate Christensen joined me in 2001 to share that vision and bring her talents and expertise in business and marketing as well as her passion for sailing her Bristol Channel Cutter. Over 20 years, we built an incredible brokerage and consulting firm specializing in ocean going vessels and live aboard cruising sailboats. We have advised and guided over 800 Clients worldwide from as far away as Hong Kong, Brazil, Australia, Europe and everywhere between, so that they too can also achieve their dream of owning and cruising with a capable bluewater vessel to find and reach their own horizons. We have the experience and expertise required to really help people.
For over 45 years, I have sailed, delivered and worked on hundreds of different types of vessels. Representing many clients, I have sailed in the North Sea to Med, across the Atlantic, and in the South China Sea and the, Pacific, the Caribbean Islands and also both Coasts of the USA. Having owned and maintained over 3 million dollars worth of sailing vessels, I have vast experience with incredible sailing vessels from the Hallberg Rassy 53 or a Valiant 40 & 42, a Norseman 447, a PSC34, and a BCC28. I've sailed to many foreign ports and also lived aboard while raising a family. Kate and I have had the opportunity to have incredible sailing adventures aboard our boats from the amazing Bristol Channel Cutter to the Hallberg Rassy 53 and finally our Valiant 42 that we built new in 2008 when we were Valiant Dealers in Annapolis. We have sailed far and lived aboard; we have led the Caribbean 1500 to the Bahamas. We have raced to Bermuda. We have delivered boats from the North Sea to the Med and from Guatemala to Annapolis and of course from the Caribbean to Annapolis many times. Through that experience we can help cruising couples make the right decisions. I have decommissioned and shipped many vessels and put them back together again, for myself and also for our clients. I have upgraded each vessel we owned installing every system imaginable, and maintaining every boat properly. I have taught and advised clients so that they themselves will have a pleasant and rewarding experience. Being a fellow boat owner and having personally experienced both sides of being a buyer and a seller, I understand your concerns.
With these many years of experience I have come to know and appreciate what a truly high caliber blue water sailing yachts is and should be. As a licensed & bonded professional yacht broker, please give me the pleasure of helping you define your requirements and help choose your next passage making/offshore capable sailing or power yacht. My experience is gained from having had a 100 Ton USCG Master License, being a Captain on several ocean races, having been a Marine Surveyor, and of course my background as an MSME Mechanical Engineer. And most important of all, I have sailed over 100,000 offshore miles, on my own boats and delivering countless boats for client to about everywhere.
Now as the RogueWave Division of David Walters Yachts, Kate and I carry on the RogueWave traditions as Your Choice for Bluewater Boats! We continue to specialize in the bluewater boats we love; the vessels of quality, style, and substance.

This Pacific Seacraft Crealock 37 is the rose among the thorns. Call me and I'll explain to you the difference. TheListing Broker has owned one of these great cruising boats. I loved and appreciated my Crealock and sailed her far. I know how these boats behave in the ocean. Pretty good! This PSC 37 Adventure has had 100K invested in the last few years since 2015 and she is so Ready to Go!
We are so pleased to offer a really well outfitted and wonderful 1995 Pacific Seacraft 37! She is complete for cruising with new electronics, AIS, SSB, Wind, Solar, Windvane steering, and even a Portland Pudgy live raft dinghy. Nice that the last owner did all that investment for you as his cruising plans changed! This is the boat you are always longing to find. Don’t wait.
You already know that the Crealock 37 is proven and appreciated for her seaworthy build quality and trusted sailing characteristics. This is a true blue water cruiser capable of sailing far and a particular favorite of solo sailors and cruising couples. She’s easy to sail as a couple or solo. So many of these ideally sized sailboats have circumnavigated or at least taken their people everywhere they wanted to go.
We are proud to present our rather incredible offering with so many upgrades recently in preparation for YOUR cruising success. She is not only well equipped by she is beautiful with all the exterior teak newly refinished. This is one of the best out fitted capable blue water cruisers that we have to offer for a couple or a solo sailor. Both headsails are on furlers! You have a Cape Horn self steering gear!
The boat is rigged perfectly for single hand sailing! Everything is human sized! Did you know that the Pacific Seacraft 37 has proved itself time and again in the Singlehanded Transpacific Yacht Race. Her easy comfortable motion at sea is a function of her hull shape and underbody design. Nothing radical, just common sense
This Crealock design is well known for building ocean capable sailboats that are strong enough for the demands of the sea. She’s a stout little cutter with a full keel and a fine cutaway forefoot and skeg hung rudder. She’s salty with a classic shear line making her look like a real boat. The hull is solid fiberglass with vinyl ester resin. Her 6,200 lbs of lead ballast and full 16,000 lbs displacement give her a sea kindly motion. With 4’11” draft she is perfect for the Bay and the Bahamas and Florida! Cutter rigged as she is, she has a beautiful divided sail plan that is totally manageable sail plan. Ordered with the single-handers package she is very easy to sail and safe because you do everything in the cockpit. For a solo sailor this is a perfect size and for a couple it is very easy to sail this boat and the space down below will amaze you. In fact the headroom is 6’4” and she sleeps six if you really need to with two doubles and two single berths.
As you may know, Pacific Seacraft built beautiful Bill Crealock designs in Southern California for many many years. In about 2007 the factory moved to North Carolina under new ownership. The factory does a lot of refits and provides wonderful support to the owners of Pacific Seacraft yachts which is a wonderful thing!
