Our History

La Conner Yacht Sales was established in 1971.  In the mid 1970's, Bill Campbell, a member of the original ownership group bought out his partners, and together with El Meyers, they sold a lot of boats.  In 1985, Gordon and Jane Godfrey moved from Vashon Island to La Conner and purchased La Conner Yacht Sales.  In 1989, Art Kaplan and Marcie Miles bought the business from Gordon and Jane (Marcie’s parents).  The office moved around within the La Conner Marina several times, however, we have been in the same office location at 611 Dunlap Street, within the La Conner Marina office building, since 2010.
