WHO WE ARE
welcome to billy graham yachts
Billy Graham Yachts is owned and operated by William H. (Billy) Graham and sons. As company President, Mr. Graham has over 50 years of combined sales, business ownership and hands on marine experience.
Mr. Graham purchased his first boat in 1956 and has many years of experience in the marine industry. He started at age 14 on the Canadian Pacific Steamship passenger vessel SS Keewatin, which was built before the SS Titanic and is still afloat today. In addition he also crewed on Great Lakes bulk freighters and the CCG Pacific fleet, certified as a commercial seaman and general machinist. As a machinist he operated as shop foreman in charge of yacht and ship repair for a 100 year old company. Graham still found time to make yacht deliveries, and crew local sailing races.
In 1974 Mr. Graham pioneered and owned a new custom machining and manufacturing business for the marine, aircraft, automotive and industrial industries. Following this adventure, he spent 14 years as a sales representative and marketing manager for an educational foundation. The next logical step for Mr. Graham was to combine his experience in the marine industry, and his background in sales and management to start Billy Graham Yachts Inc.

To Whom It May Concern,
I have known Billy Graham for about a year. I first met Bill when he came by my 1975 34’ Tollycraft looking for boats to list for sale. Although I was not interested at the time, I was impressed enough that when the time came, I called Billy. My first impression was right, as he did an outstanding job on selling my boat and I would recommend him with out hesitation. Please feel free to contact me through Billy Graham Yachts at any time should you wish to discuss this further. Yours truly, Dave Whitehead British Columbia, Canada
Dear Billy, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance in selling my 42′ Maple Leaf, Jeanni. During my rather long involvement with pleasure boating, I have worked with brokers from all three coasts. Never before, however have I had the pleasure of dealing with such an honest, straightforward person such as yourself. You possess in abundance the qualities and virtues of a professional salesman – integrity, energy, empathyand product knowledge. Should I ever purchase or sell another boat, you will be the first I call. Feel free to use this endorsement letter in any or all of your promotional material. Best regards – Bill,

Hi Billy, A note of thanks is in order for defining what you refer to as ‘Full Service Brokerage’. It has well exceeded our expectations. It has been two months since Nancy & I purchased the 4788 Bayliner, and it clearly would not have happened, had you not been managing the transaction. Your prompt response to our requests for additional information and follow-up, and the integrity and honesty of the answers was outstanding. Coupled with your knowledge about boating, gave us the confidence to go forward with the transaction. What I wasn’t expecting was the continued level of professional service and commitment that you’ve provided us on an ongoing basis. Residing in California, and managing the details since the purchase of the boat would have been taxing, at the very least. Your help in the delivery of the boat through US Customs, locating a marina, identifying instructors, facilitating repairs & maintenance, and just ‘checking in’ on the boat periodically have made this a most pleasant experience. Your advice and insight have been invaluable, and we truly appreciate your patience through this period of learning about this Bayliner. In addition to becoming owners of a wonderful boat, we also have had the pleasure of appreciating what ‘Full Service Brokerage’ really means. Billy, thanks so much for all the help and support, well after the sale. Every interaction has been a pleasure, and we’ll look forward to the next one. Best wishes in all your future endeavors. Sincerely, Joe & Nancy Schwab California
Dear Mr. Kreuter: Thank you for your interest in my West Bay 45. The boat has been sold. Please contact Mr. Billy Graham at >. Mr. Graham was a great help to me and a person I can recommend, without reservation, to assist you in your search for a boat. He is one of the few brokers I know who keeps the benefit of his client ahead of his own. Best regards, V.P. Hennen Washington State
