Port Annapolis Marina is not only home to David Walters Yachts in Annapolis, but one of our key partners in the industry.  Their service and facilities are second to none. Whether you are staying for a few days or a few months, Port Annapolis Marina has everything you need!

Sirocco Marine Annapolis

Located on the Chesapeake and the capital of Maryland. Visitors and residents alike enjoy miles of gorgeous beachfront and ocean. To get the most out of the area’s sparkling waters, you need a safe watercraft with plenty of exciting features. Sirocco Marine’s Annapolis inflatable boat dealer sells rigid inflatable boats (RIBs), a new way to explore the sea.

FLIR Maritime thermal imaging systems turn night into day, keeping you safe and secure on the water and letting you boat with confidence.  Plus, FLIR thermal imaging works during the day too- allowing you to see clearly through solar glare, smoke and even light fog.


ICOM has a marine radio to fit the needs of every boat on the water. They will have several featured promotions at our bluewater boat show this year. Visit their website to learn more.

North Sails

As the official sail maker of Hylas Yachts, North Sails has been a long time partner of David Walters Yachts. Their team has equipped our clients boats for well over 20 years, taking them to all far flung corners of the globe.

Quantum Sails

If you've seen our Italia Yachts out on the water, you have undoubtedly admired their speed and performance largely due to the sails, support, and expertise of our partners at Quantum Sails. Andrew Waters and the rest of the team have been huge supporters of our Italia Program and have always taken excellent care of our owners!
