Come aboard and feel the luxury of this incredible yacht, professionally maintained with continuous upgrades by the compulsive and knowledgeable owners who have been yachtsmen for many years.

All equipment and luxury items are custom or top-of-the-line name brands and the décor throughout, reflects the owners wife extensive knowledge as a luxury homeowner.
The well renowned design team of Jack Sarin and Mike Guth made an incredible “statement” in the world of Luxury Motoryachts when they designed the VANTARE. They custom built these exceptional yachts, which are known for their superior performance, interior and exterior styling, each custom built to owners specification and incorporated the owners wishes for luxury, with superb quality and comfort inside and out, along with comfortable sea performance.
THERE TRULY ISN’T ANYTHING ON THE MARKET THAT CAN COMPARE…CALL FOR A PRIVATE ONBOARD SHOWING TODAY…YOU’LL BE BREATHLESS!!
It's easy to see why the Vantare line of luxury yachts are built and designed as they are when you know a little about Vantare president Michael Guth's background. As a U.S. Navy Commander, Mike Guth had duties that included outfitting and the maintenance of high-speed Navy boats and also submarines. This is where he learned that lightness and speed can be carefully balanced against strength and durability. He retired from the Navy and became a successful builder of energy-efficient custom homes in the Pacific N.W. before he began his boating career. He knew he could build a quality Motor Yacht in the Hatteras tradition, not on a cheaper scale, but to compete with them on the highest level of quality. The Vandare family of yachts are a great yachting legacy to the quality he and his wife stood for. Incredibly, he followed his successful Vantare Yacht career, shifting his interest from yachts to Motor Coaches, where he built some of the finest motor coaches available today…names you will immediately recognize, the Motor Coaches, Provost, and Featherlite.
Once in a great while, a boat comes along that surpasses the combined expectations of owner, builder and designer. The Vantare CUSTOM Cockpit Motoryacht “WHEELER DEALER” is just such a cruiser and reasserts what founder Mike Guth said is the philosophy behind all Vantares, which was to build a strong, stylish, yacht, using advanced materials and methods, that equals or exceeds any domestic cruiser on the market in luxury and performance. With the help of a Luxury Yacht Naval Architect Jack Sarin, the first Vantare 58’ took the Pacific N.W. by surprise in 1987. It was notable for its low profile and swept-back lines, a modern look without European pretenses. Like the 64s that followed, It quickly established a reputation for excellent performance with small, fuel-efficient diesels, but it also adds its own character and color to the Vantare reputation and it proved to be a sea-kindly vessel of the first magnitude.
The philosophy of the entire Vantare line, was to produce strong but lightweight yachts using the latest fiberglass technology, so that the fairly small power plants can achieve both speed and fuel economy without sacrificing seaworthiness. It's not a small task, but designer Jack Sarin (who is responsible for all the Vantare' lines) met the requirements admirably.
Yacht Architect Jack Sarin gave the Vantare 64 a modified-V hull with a 10 degree deadrise at the transom and a full keel for longitudinal stability and tracking. High freeboard and an upper spray strake help maintain a dry boat in all but the worst conditions. The boat boasts a low overall profile for aesthetic as well as functional reasons. The hull, deck, deckhouse and flying bridge are cored, hand-laid structures. Coring exceeds one and a half inches in some sections and end-grained balsa coring is used in the upper deck, to keep the weight to a minimum and the center of gravity low. Performance and sturdy construction in a comfortable ride and fuel economy, plus the tremendous space for the owner, guests and crew, makes ‘WHEELER DEALER” AN EXCEPTIONAL FIND ON THE YACHTING MARKET TODAY!!!
The hull is one-piece, using Divinycel coring to achieve high strength. Isophthalic resin is used both for strength and for protection against blistering, resulting in a light but strong hull. Foam stringers are used in areas of stress, but the overall stiffness of the hull shell has reduced the need for heavy structural bracing and allows for better utilization of the interior space as well as a lighter finished product.
Another seemingly impossible design request was to have 6'6" or more headroom throughout the interior, but still keep the lines of the superstructure sleek, both to lower the center of gravity and to achieve the European styling. Again, Sarin used the interior volume of the low-stringered hull and the 20’ beam to accomplish both requirements.
“WHEELER DEALER” is a remarkably comfortable, spacious and stylish vessel. Her 6’8” headroom and lovely interior is warm, well-kept and inviting in every way. The pilothouse is spacious and designed more like a 100’ Motoryacht. Her roomy Flybridge is fully enclosable. The 4’ aft DECK PLATFORM is perfect for swimming, diving, fishing and WATER TOYS or any outdoor activities. Access to the storage area under the cockpit from the stern, includes TWO separate, port & starboard storage areas for PERSONAL WATERCRAFT and a large lazarette mid-ship under the stairs with commodious stowage for abundant diving equipment, including an air compressor refill station. This huge stern area for all your ships “toys” is often called “THE BEACHCLUB”….an appropriate name for this wonderfully usable area.
Forward of the stern lazarette compartment is the engine room with easy access to the engines and the other equipment and machinery. This vessel is truly a cruiser or a magnificent live-a-board with all the comforts. “WHEELER DEALER is ready to go on your great adventure as YOUR HOME OR HOME AWAY FROM HOME!
“WHEELER DEALER” would make a great seasonal home in south Florida, with all of the amenities of a home in the more than Million Dollar range and yet it is one of the best values in the Yachting world TODAY, that can carry you in comfort, safety and luxury, ON THE EASTERN SEABOARD OR FULFILLING YOUR BAHAMIAN OR CARIBBEAN CRUISING ADVENTURES. There are MANY OPTIONS when considering “WHEELER DEALER”, which includes the possibility of a LUXURY CHARTER YACHT, or DIVE CHARTER YACHT, as “WHEELER DEALER” sports TEN comfortable berths, FOUR large heads, FIVE staterooms and THREE galleys!!! The rakish forefoot, sweptback pilothouse windscreen, and attention to styling details mark the Vantare "WHEELER DEALER"' as a "Med-styled" yacht.
Designed for comfortable living there are many interior features which add to the owners’ and their guests’ comfort. The entire interior of “WHEELER DEALER” is beautifully lacquered finished in light ashwood and teak. The FIVE staterooms have numerous hanging closets, lined in cedar and there are multiple dressers and cabinets, as well as telephones and room Intercoms. All baths are spacious and tastefully decorated with custom lighting, mirrors, marble and elongated toilets with push button flush.
A walk through the “WHEELER DEALER” begins on the aft platform, entering the aft cockpit through a transom door. From here, the skipper and his guests can climb the recessed teak stairs with Stainless Steel rails for safety, up to a spacious outside aft living area. The full-width upper aft deck provides plenty of room for numerous guests with a large table to port, with large “L” shaped settee outboard and several folding “Captains” chairs on centerline plus at the tables end, which affords seating for up to 10 guests. There are high Stainless Steel rails around and the stern opening Isinglass has zip out windows and there are sliding tinted Plexiglas windows, port and starboard to enclose the stern living area snugly, so that when the weather turns, you have the option of extending the main saloon even farther out. To starboard, there is a large freezer box, a bar sink, Jennaire opening grill and refrigerator with plenty of counter space….essentially a SECOND complete galley for the perfect evening of alfresco dining or just socializing, in this enclosed CALIFORNIA SUNDECK.
Forward, just before entering the main salon, there is a day head with mirrored bulkheads and full stand-up shower and to starboard, is the access to the engine room, convenient for service personnel and eliminating the need for traipsing through the main cabin.
Visitors who pass through sliding doors aft, will discover an airy, open main saloon with numerous windows. It is 33 feet from the sliding door to the helm, but it looks like more much more.
The main cabin is a refreshing, wide-open place to entertain or relax. The owner can monitor the radar or the waters all around, from the galley or the dinning bar, which is only 20 feet from the helm. For those in warmer climates the value of a lower helm station is immeasurable. How wonderful it is to go below and flip on the reverse-cycle heat/AC, and how that can extend your cruising season to a year ‘round adventure. Inside, furnishing and interior wood joinery are excellent, with thought given to matching the wood grain on each panel. Overhead, gold-plated Italian halogen light fixtures are recessed into the headliner, while dimmer-controlled rope lighting is hidden behind window valances with real wood Venetian blinds.
There’s a wet bar with ice-maker and a complete entertainment center along the starboard side, which features a hydraulic lift for the TV, so that it can be completely hidden inside of the cabinet, with just a touch of the finger. A large comfortable L-shaped settee with cocktail table and a dining table for 8 graces the saloon to port.
The galley is located forward of the main salon and is a focal point of this beautiful yacht. So many yachts feature a “galley down” configuration, which puts the cook at a disadvantage in so many ways. With a “galley down”, the cook is separated from conversations, socializing and taking in the views that the rest of the guests are enjoying. “WHEELER DEALER” has absolutely the best and most thoughtful galley layout, which incorporates cooking, serving, enjoying conversations of guests who are lounging in the spacious main saloon, which is the center of activity. With abundant overhead cabinets and open-backed counter tops, the chef even has the ability to pass food to the Captain at the forward helm station. The counters, storage, sinks and overall layout make it easy to prepare elegant meals and snacks for a large crowd.
At the helm, a destroyer type wheel of ash and stainless steel, Hydraulic power steering and MMC electronic engine controls offer true luxury for the skipper. The MMC controls, switch command of the boat from the lower helm to the flying bridge at the push of one button. Going forward to check on the anchor or handle lines is a simple matter of sliding open one of two side access doors, (port & starboard) in the lower helm station.
Access to the flying bridge is a quick walk up the stairs to port. Everything about this vessel is roomier than expected and the Flybridge is no exception. The Flybridge and top deck are expansive with a complete helm Station! There is a complete helm, with dual Captains seats, guest seating for 2 to port and “L” shaped seating with a cocktail table, to starboard of the helm. Directly aft is a large “U” shaped settee with large dining table, adequate seating for dining for 10 guests. To port, there is a sink, Jenaire grill and complete wetbar with refrigerator. All of the upper deck and bow cushions are covered with a fashionable Sunbrella, plus there are custom covers for everything, including the Flybridge galley area and all seats, instruments etc. The rear part of the upper deck is huge and is ideal for sunbathers. Port and starboard electric davits provide additional convenience in lowering equipment (toys).
Down the ash-lined stairs, carpeted in the middle section for safety, near the entertainment center in the main salon, you’ll find the master stateroom. Adjacent to at the bottom of the stairs, is a six foot hanging locker and washer & dryer. A king-size berth, which takes advantage of this yachts wide beam, flanked by twin ash nightstands dominates the master cabin, headed by a beveled-glass mirror. There is storage everywhere: beneath a built-in television console on the centerline at the foot of the berth, below the stairs and all along the starboard side. A comfortable settee and handy vanity/desk line the port side. There is also a large en-suite head, accented with custom tile work and equipped with home size shower with custom tile floor. You’ll note custom lighting throughout. Also of note are the unique custom brass door handles and the intricate cut outs on the doors which make smashing your fingers impossible. The Master Stateroom has a, complete entertainment system with Satellite TVs, DVD, AM/FM/Stereo and CD player.
All the baths are spacious and tastefully decorated with custom lighting, mirrors, marble and elongated toilets with push button flush.
To reach the forward and amidships guest staterooms, visitors go down the forward stairs located to starboard of the helm station. The forward VIP stateroom features a queen-size berth, private ensuite bath with marble-floors, stall shower & extensive storage in multiple cabinets, drawers and hanging locker. All FIVE staterooms have enough storage and lockers for all your personal gear, for long extended cruises.
Next aft to starboard is a private cabin with louvered sliding door, cedar lined hanging locker, storage shelves at end of berth and storage locker outboard and overhead. Midway aft, is another stateroom which sports a beautiful athwart ship queen-size bed with multiple drawers under, separate dresser with drawers, mirrors and lockers.
As you continue to explore these beautiful staterooms, to port, you will note a stateroom with an over/under bunk configuration with single berths, PLUS a twin berth, separated by a 3 drawer low-boy dresser. There are drawers under the berths and storage shelves above.

This boat has been the perfect home away from home for our family and us. The large, open concept allows us all to congregate together comfortably, while the many staterooms provide plenty of room for alone time. We like to lunch topside, watching out for porpoise and turtles, while dinners are usually spent at the aft dining table, close to the Jen-air and bar. We love playing with the grandkids at the dive platform – snorkeling, kayaking and paddle boarding. Our destination of choice is usually the Bahamas, easily within reach of Florida, but we’ve also enjoyed the Florida Keys and have even ventured as far south as Trinidad and Tobago, visiting many island countries along the way.
