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

Ted and I want to thank you for your professionalism and efficiency during our recent boat buying adventure.  When we started out, we really (really) didn’t know what we wanted.  Being experienced sailors, when it came to evaluating a big motor yacht, well, we were just lost.  Scott, you said right away after our first viewing, that we needed to see a lot of boats.  How right you were.  It really helped to see a variety of boats in a variety of conditions, which helped us realize when we saw Brigadoon, she was THE ONE.

Eric, you showed us the boat before it was ready for viewing and that made a big difference.  Your understanding of our needs (and my “attention to detail”) took us to just the right boat at the right time.  We were ready to take a break on looking when, BAM, it all happened. Our lovely boat is now getting a nice coat of paint on her bottom and we cant wait to move in.

Thanks again to you both and to Bayport Yachts for a seamless efficient experience.  You guys rock!!!!!

Catherine and Ted Grant, Hatteras 53′ Brigadoon

If you’re looking for honest, professional guidance in your yacht search, Eric is YOUR man!
