Located for over 20 years at Clipper Yacht Harbor in Sausalito, California, Oceanic is uniquely situated in the heart of the busiest yachting center on San Francisco Bay. A short distance to San Francisco, the Golden Gate and other approaches to the bay, Sausalito is a coveted destination in San Francisco yachting.

You will find Oceanic’s office and 500 feet of sales docks in the center of Sausalito’s maritime district. Boaters have at their convenience a fuel dock, boat yard, marine service centers, a launching ramp, tackle store, guest docks, restaurants and several marine retailers. No other brokerage offers the location, high visibility and traffic that Oceanic enjoys, all of which can have significant impact on the success of your listing.

Long Island, NY


In 2015 John Baier expanded Oceanic’s presence to The Hamptons, at the eastern end of Long Island.

Oceanic clientele now have not only west coast inventory to select from but also the considerable inventory found on the eastern seaboard. Buyers can easily purchase their boat on either coast, cruise local waters and then ship their yacht to the opposite coast for additional cruising grounds. All of this can take place seamlessly under the guidance of an Oceanic broker. 

Now working between Sausalito, California and East Hampton, New York, John Baier continues to structure east coast/west coast transactions. After 33 years as a broker, he is well recognized in the marine industry among leading yacht brokers, surveyors, boatyards and yacht transporters throughout North America.
