Dave and Erin Townley, a father-daughter duo, bring a very personalized level of knowledge and professionalism to the yacht shopping and selling processes. Dave is a certified professional yacht broker (CPYB) with over twenty years of experience in the business and has spent a lifetime cruising and living aboard with his family.

Erin, having spent a lifetime around yachts, has shadowed her father and lived aboard various yachts for years. She started as a full-time broker in 2012. With a lifetime of cruising extensively as well, she brings a fresh and informed perspective to the process and can offer a lot of information about cruising as a child.

Dave and Erin have been aboard thousands of boats and have helped clients buy or sell several hundred yachts. Every time they embark on a new adventure with a new client, their knowledge base balloons even more. Couple this with extensive cruising experience on a wide variety of yachts, both power and sail, Dave & Erin provide an invaluable amount of boating knowledge.

The Townley Team is ready to help you with your next adventure. They will travel far and wide by car, boat and plane nationally or internationally to find the boat the best fits your need. When listing a boat, they go above and beyond to know your yacht as if it were their own.


We know there are many brokers out there for you to choose from. To stand out, we have to differentiate ourselves from the rest of the pack to be successful. Our secret is plain and simple: We take the time to really get to know you, your goals, and your yacht so we can understand your needs. This requires a great bond before, during and after each and every deal.

We like to form friendships with our clients that help our Crusader family grow. How is this the perfect synergy? It’s great for you because we will remain a fantastic resource for your boating needs far into the future. It’s great for us because you’ll send us more clients! We aim to bring a very unique and concentrated approach to the yacht buying and selling processes that you just won’t find elsewhere. Our goal is to have you consider us a long term friend and advisor for all of your yachting needs.
