In 1980, Ray Schrader founded Schrader Yacht Sales based in Point Pleasant, New Jersey. He started with a few brokerage sailboats, a secretary, Carlene, and his friend and sales associate, Al Frandano. Their first new sailboat line was S2, and after six years, SYS was named dealer of the Year. It has been rumored they invented the 'Boat Show Special'.
In 1986, they began selling Island Packet Yachts with Catalina Sailboats™ coming next. As the sailboat manufacturers expanded into powerboats, so did Schrader Yacht Sales. Ray and Al sold Pearson Motor Yachts, and Catalina Power boats, and Pursuit. In 1995, Ray was asked to manage Canal Point Marina, a facility of over 200 slips. Growing larger, in 1996, Schrader Yacht Sales began selling Parker fishing boats.
In 2005, Schrader Yacht Sales took on the Chris-Craft line of boats. We now have a full service marina, parts department, and showroom. Recently we opened a ship's store carrying a host of marine products and supplies.
To date we carry Chris Craft boats, World Cat Catamarans, and Sea Born center console boats.
