United Yacht Sales, the world's largest yacht brokerage firm with more than 250 yacht brokers, have been named an official dealer of the Shelter Island Yachts runabout built by CH Marine. UYS broker Mordy Miltz will be a brand representative and manage the relationship with the builder for the company.

United Yacht Sales will represent the Florida market as its territory for the builder.

Shelter Island Runabouts, designed and built right here in the U.S. by CH Marine, are hand-crafted, custom-built 38-foot downeast boats. "We use only the finest materials; Kevlar hulls, custom stainless steel deck fittings and hand selected teak," says the shipyard. "The hardware, system components and machinery we use have all been selected for quality and longevity. If it costs a little more, then so be it; we do not compromise."

"I am very excited to bring together Shelter Island Runabout to the market with United Yacht Sales," said Mordy. "CH Marine has an excellent reputation in boat building for the last 30 years. Anyone that owns a downeast or loves that style of boating is going to want to get on board the Shelter Island 38."

For pricing and availability of Shelter Island inventory or build slots, please contact Mordy Miltz at (516) 606-1282 or at

The Shelter Island 38 is offered in 2 different deck layouts. Each style is offered in a convertible or hardtop and can be made with either inboard or outboard power.

  1. 38 Runabout - Traditional downeast runabout with a full cabin, head, berth and galley.
  2. 38 Runabout With Outboards - Same hull but offers more seating in the bow, a wet bar and a cabin with a berth and head.
  3. 38 Runabout FS - Same hull as the other 38's but offers more seating, choice of inboard/outboard power

Located between the North and South forks on the East End of Long Island, Shelter Island has a rich background of seafaring tradition. Close proximity to the Hampton’s provides easy access for visitors to order and build a new vessel or admire the creation of the world’s finest yachts. Coecles Harbor Marine has been honored to handcraft and create some of the finest yachts for over 30 years.

In 2000, CH Marine expanded their facilities and opened a new boat building shop down the street from the boatyard, and it is here where each new Shelter Island yacht takes shape. The company is fortunate to have a staff of highly-skilled carpenters, mechanics, electricians, painters and fiberglass specialists in the shop; their common goal here is to build the best.

During this time, Mordy actively pursued continuing education by gaining his Merchant Mariner Credential, among other maritime certifications. This entrepreneurial mindset provided strategic opportunity for Mordy to enter in the yacht brokerage industry. In less than two years, Mordy opened his first office in Long Island, NY, and another in South Florida shortly thereafter. Mordy has connected with top leaders in communities all over the eastern seaboard, and most recently in the west coast.
