Our season typically goes from May to October here in the GTA. The yachts are equipped for all weather conditions for your comfort and safety. For those that prefer to continue boating year-round, we can migrate the boats south in winter rather than storing and winterizing them here. Transporting them to Florida instead of paying for the winter costs here is a great option while still being fully managed. You will get the best of our boating season here while avoiding hurricane season and your boat can now become your condo in Florida with more great boating experiences that await you.

Yacht Solutions has been managing yachts for over 12 years in the GTA.

Our powerboat fleet is comprised of new Schaefer Yachts in the Great Lakes and some migrate south to Florida in the winter. The Toronto base is the Outer Harbour Marina Toronto just off Leslie Street south of Lakeshore Road.

As a Schaefer Yachts Dealership, the YACHT Solutions team includes year-round office staff, cleaning, maintenance, training and crew members to facilitate a comprehensive yacht management program. We service what we sell and provide a concierge service to our yacht owners and seasonal members. Ours is not a charter operation, but rather an exclusive service for yacht owners and boating enthusiasts. We know each of our yachts firsthand and oversee our yacht operations personally seven days a week.

The ‘personal touch’ is one factor in our success that has assured our boat owners and members, that our staff has consistently delivered quality service over the years.


In order to better understand how our programs can work for you, we like to start with an exploratory conversation.
We will ask about things you would like to be able to do, place you would like to visit, activities of interest and more.


We process the information form our conversation and introduce you to some boats and programs that we feel best suit you.​
You will then be able to appreciate and understand the benefits and process to get you to your dream yacht.


When you like what you see, we propose an ownership and yachting program that is right for you based on everything we have discussed.​

Whether you are a first time buyer or experienced owner, the program will be Specifically Designed For You.
