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.


We greatly appreciate all you have done for us over the past year+. Should we hear of anyone looking to buy or sell a boat in the future we certainly will recommend you. It’s been a pleasure working with you. We still owe you a lunch or dinner and hope we have the opportunity to make good on that one of these days. Enjoy the wonderful days of Maryland boating season! Take care.

Eric, We looked at a lot of boats and met a lot of brokers before we found you and the 89 President you had listed. We knew as soon as we looked at the boat, it was the right boat and you were the right broker for us. It has been a refreshing experience with you making it a simple and easy transaction. We also appreciated how helpful you were with local knowledge on facilities and services beyond the purchase. We would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling a boat. Thank you!
