Since 1965


“My experience as a naval engineer was crucial to the conception and design of these boats, I put it together with my decades of charter experience to create something unique, something different … I wanted to offer beautiful, quality boats at a much lower price.”
-Damir Kufner 


Kufner Yachts was founded

Kufner Yachts was founded in 2012 by Damir Kufner, a Croatian naval engineer with decades of yacht charter experience and owner of a charter company. Kufner was dissatisfied with the quality of the boats available on the market, so he decided to start his own shipyard to build better boats.



Kufner 50 & Kufner 54 debuted

The first Kufner Yachts model, the Kufner 54, was launched in 2017. This was followed by the Kufner 50, which made its debut in 2018. Both models were well-received by the boating community, and they quickly established Kufner Yachts as a leading manufacturer of high-quality sailing yachts.



Kufner 50 Exclusive & Kufner 54 Exclusive Debuted

Kufner Yachts expanded its range to include the Kufner 54 Exclusive and Kufner 50 Exclusive in 2022. These new models are restyled versions of the original Kufner 54 and Kufner 50, with a number of improvements, including a larger sunbathing area, a built-in barbecue, and more space and amenities in the interior.

My lifelong love for sailing began on a 16′ Sidewinder and summertimes with my uncles charter boat on the Chesapeake Bay. Family charters in the BVI’s deepened this passion.

At thirteen, my family bought our first sailboat, an Irwin 42 spending weekends on the Long Island Sound.

A chance to crew from Newport to Bermuda on a 54′ Little Harbor that my cousin was captain of ignited my love for offshore sailing.

Our yearning for a more sea worthy vessel led us to the Hylas 51′ which allowed us to sail summers on the sound and winters in the BVI’s. Over time, we’ve had the pleasure of owning several Hylas sailboats.

Now, as the Exclusive Dealer for Kufner Yachts across the USA, including the Hawaiian Islands, Mexico, Canada, and All the Caribbean I introduce these finely crafted sailboats, celebrated for their superb quality, performance, and comfort. Each yacht is built with high-end materials and innovative designs, assuring strength and reliability while exploring exotic destinations.

I’m here to guide you on your own remarkable journey. Set Sail on your dream yacht and create memories that will last a lifetime. Let’s start this thrilling adventure together.
