About Us

Since 1981

Here at Mikelson Yachts, we have a long history of excellence in the yacht-building industry. Starting in 1981, Dick Peterson and Patrick Sullivan made a name for themselves simply by building their own boat. By word of mouth and excellent craftsmanship, they started to build a following, and more boats. The Mikelson Yachts company was born, and is still going strong more than 40 years later.

The Mikelson Yachts mission is to build high quality and semi-custom cruisers and sportfishers. We are factory-direct, meaning that we are able to save customers from a 30%+ markup.

Our motto is, “A Revolution in Design,” and that is seen by our quality boats and work ethic. We’ve won numerous awards for our yachts, including the Bisbee Black and Blue Tournament and the Catalina Classic Tournament. We also provide a vast amount of different services to our clients, including training on their new boats, servicing their vessels, warranties, electrical work, diesel work, and Zeus engine servicing. Mikelson Yachts is an all-encompassing company, and we want to make your transition into yacht ownership seamless and exciting.
