The Finest Yacht Services
My commitment is to create a superb yachting experience for privately owned vessels or companies, and to maintain and uphold the highest standards of quality and professionalism.
I am currently a Yacht Broker with Berthon USA selling a wide selection of quality yachts, both power and sail worldwide. As part of the Berthon International Group, we have offices in many major locations throughout Europe and the UK. With new boat dealerships and agencies for Moody, Rustler, Solaris and Sealine, I look forward to assisting you with your next purchase or sale!
30+ Years of Experience
I grew up in the United Kingdom, where I started sailing at an early age. Since 1992, I have been working in the United States as a yacht captain, overseeing motor yachts, sailing yachts and also racing sailing boats. I have spent extensive time in the Caribbean and in New England, including Maine, sailing with both owners and charter guests. I am committed to providing first class experiences while on the water. Some of my past clients include personalities like Walter Cronkite and the King and Queen of Norway.

Houghton Yachting can help you select the right boat to meet your needs and ensure you are familiar with its operation, leading to a future of enjoyable experiences on the water.
"In the 3 ½ years that Peter Houghton has served as our full-time captain on our Swan 77 La Forza, he has proved to be a knowledgeable, capable, and extremely skilled captain. He works tirelessly to ensure our family, business associates, and guests always have a safe and memorable time whether sailing in New England in the summers or the Caribbean in the winter seasons.
He has also overseen every detail of two major refits and ensured the boat is ready on time and in top form for the deliveries each fall.
He is not afraid to get his hands dirty and takes on whatever needs to be done.
Although my family and I are sad to see him go, we wish him well in his future endeavors, both personal and professional."
