John Barbaro

Annapolis, MD

(443) 370-9962

John’s passion for being on the water began in college when a fraternity brother taught him how to sail. After 16 years in medical sales, John followed his passion for being on the water. He earned his USCG 100 ton Masters license with sailing and towing endorsements as well as his RYA Yachtmasters.

His new career as a luxury charter captain took him from the Carolinas, through the Bahamas and Caribbean along the entire East Coast to New England. He’s done delivery work on a variety of vessels and his experience has also taken him though sections of the Great Loop. His knowledge of systems aboard yachts was strengthened while working in the Annapolis Maryland area in technical support for Vetus –Maxwell and later as a service manager for Hinckley Yacht Services on the Chesapeake Bay.

John enjoys teaching and has his American Sailing Association instructor certification.  Combining travel with boating has brought him vast experience in wonderful destinations including Italy, Tahiti and Greece. John can help you navigate through the sales process, whether you’re buying or selling a yacht. His familiarity with sailing and power vessels of all sizes and configurations including catamarans will help you make better decisions in your search for the right yacht. He prides himself on his attention to detail while also being responsive to his clients. He looks forward to working with you on your next yacht transaction.


We were extremely pleased with how John managed our boat listing and sale from the very beginning. He had excellent communication with us,  the buyers and followed through with issues immediately. We were particularly pleased with how he handled the negotiations and how supportive he was with us as sellers. I highly recommend John and will be contacting him in the future if we are in the position to buy another boat.

John is not your typical yacht broker. He makes you feel as if you are his only client. John treats you like family. He is extremely knowledgeable, honest and trustworthy. John goes the extra mile, or should I say miles!! He was with us every step of the way and he doesn't disappear after the sale. I know we made a great friend for life!! Love this guy!

We were lucky to find John Barbaro. He went far beyond our expectations. John’s professionalism and knowledge were key to helping us find the right boat. John made our experience the best it could be and we would highly recommend him.

- Chris and Antonella Nester - Buyers of Endeavour 42

John helped me realize what I most needed in a yacht and gave quality advice through the entire purchasing process. I'd work with him again and have recommended him to my friends.

- Joshua from Annapolis - Buyer of Catalina 42

Laura and I love our passionately cared for Sabre 38 which John guided us to.  Purchasing a used sailboat was both exciting and frightening but John sailed us through the process and expertly steered us to the perfect boat.  After understanding the boat we were searching for, John led us to this hidden gem which turned out to be the perfect boat.
