The Baranof namesake
Baranof Yacht Sales is named for an island in Southeast Alaska, a remote hot springs. It is part of the Inside Passage that most people think of when they cruise Canada’s British Columbia Alaska.
These remote places and previous adventures are the inspiration for creating Baranof Yachts. Our brand was inspired by the Orca whale—often see on our throughout our founding partner’s yachting career in the Pacific Northwest, as well as in Mexico. In native culture the orca symbol represents family, romance, longevity, harmony, travel, community and protection. It is said the orca protects those who travel away from home and will then lead them back when it’s time to come home. In that spirit, Baranof Yachts was born. These are the characteristics we find in yachting—and we hope you will too.
Nothing can describe the moment being in the presence of these cetaceans as they approach you, surfacing for breaths, and seeing that glistening and regal black fin coursing though the water. When they breach and come flying up out of the water the sound is powerful and rich.
The freedom, the self-sufficiency, and the broad range of potential adventures is why we love yachting. We bring this experience and passion for the yachting industry to your new yacht.
