How would you like to save $200,000 to $400,000 on your new Alaskan Yacht, Northwest Yacht, or Regency Pilothouse Motor Yacht over U.S. or European prices and cruise in the most beautiful areas of the world?
Seattle Yachts is long known to be a world-class yacht builder and importer of the finest boats that Asia has to offer. We represent new cruising, adventure-style yachts like Alaskan, Northwest, and Regency as factory-direct sales. New owners can then delivery in the Philippines and enjoy over 7,000 of the most pristine, exotic islands in the world. Anchor at your own private, endless white sandy beach or spend the night in remote anchorages, boater-friendly boutique resorts, and world-class diving destinations. The cruising grounds of Southeast Asia are unlike any other area in the world, but there are a few other benefits of this program as well. Enjoy NOT pay shipping, taxes, sales tax, VAT, duties, the new tariffs, or other dealer add-on charges. Combine these savings with the lower purchase price savings from low labor costs for commissioning and maintenance, and no U.S.-based offering can compare.

Your adventure will start in Subic Bay, once home to the largest U.S. Naval bases outside of the USA and is still a large shipping port. We have compiled a great crew of skilled technicians, artisans, suppliers, and laborers in Subic Bay to attend to all your needs. Enjoy staying at Subic Bay Yacht Club, with its extremely secure and protected marina, luxury accommodations, and close proximity to major shopping centers for provisioning and fine dining.

From there your adventure begins by exploring the 7,000 islands, some rated as the most beautiful in the world. Serene anchorages next to white sandy beaches, crystal clear warm water where one day you will be alone in the world. The next day drop by one of the dozens of boater-friendly boutique resorts, many offering moorings, and all with scrumptious dining. Dive or snorkel on pristine coral reefs or historic WWII shipwrecks. All destinations will be within day hops, and easily navigated and if you are lucky, escorted by pods of friendly dolphins!
When the season is over and the first rain drops fall, return to Subic for maintenance and the “rainy season” July to October. It would take a lifetime to see all that is available, but if the quest to explore grows, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand are all within easy reach with no long ocean crossings. If you tire of endless anchorages, amazingly friendly people, and near perfect weather, you can take the boat to the USA or Europe and import as a used boat at lower rates (...and hopefully after the tariffs are gone?). Both trips can be made easily on your new yacht or simply ship it.
Captain Brian will help in all facets of cruise planning, where to go, what you need, who to see, and importantly—where not to go. Except for a few small well-known areas, the Philippines and all of Southeast Asia are extremely safe. One can also join several long distance, well organized rallies to explore the area as well.
What an adventure! Seattle Yachts customers are famed adventurers, and always know a good deal when they see it, so come along! Let the Adventure Begin! Make your Dream your Story. If you aren't sure where to start, simply email Captain Brian and say hello - Brian@SeattleYachts.com.
