Eric Horst - President

Chester, MD, US

I was born and raised in the Baltimore area. My family intoduced me to boating on the Chesapeake Bay when I was 11 years old. This event changed my life. I immediately loved the water, boats and boating. All of my spare time was spent around boats and marinas. My curiousity propelled me to become what I refer to as a "student of boats". As a youngster, the first boat of my own was a 7- foot "SportYak" with a sturdy pair of wooden oars. I quickly "moved up" to a 12 foot aluminum rowboat with a 3 HP outboard. Then at age 18 I purchased my first "big" boat, a 30 foot wooden 1963 Pacemaker cruiser. I was hooked for life! After a successful 18 year career as the owner of an Interior Design related business, I decided to pursue a career that followed my passion. With no previous yacht sales experience I started Bayport Yachts in December 1989. Now, after more than 25 years of selling boats and tons of transactions with happy customers, I can truly say that I still love what I do and look forward to coming to work (almost) every day! It's really easy to be good at something that you love.

Testimonials

Eric Horst is the world's greatest yacht broker.  When the surveyor came up with a very long list of needed repairs, we thought the deal was lost.  Eric negotiated a survey allowance and the boat was sold as is.  It was a win-win for us as sellers and also for the buyers - all in under 5 weeks from listing to closing.  If you ever want to buy or sell a boat on the Chesapeake Bay or in South Florida, call Eric first!

A huge thank you to Eric Horst for going above and beyond in helping me close out one chapter of my life and moving on to the next after the death of my husband.  The Loop just wasn't in the cards for us and our dream Loop boat had to find someone to love her as much as we did.   Little did we know when we bought this boat from Eric two years-ago he would be selling it for me two years later.   I would highly recommend Eric and Bayport Yachts to anyone buying or selling a boat - a class act with both transactions.
