About Sail Montana

New Yachts
Sail Montana offers new yachts from J Boats up to 40'.  We offer new dinghies from RS and LaserPerformance Sailboats.  If you are considering the purchase of any brand of new yacht, contact us for assistance with negotiating the purchase, commissioning and transport.  

As a listing (selling) broker, we provide full service marketing of your yacht locally, regionally and internationally.  Our local listings are from a freshwater, light wind, short-season environment.

As a buyer's broker we work hard to locate the ideal boat for a customer's needs. We have assisted clients in purchasing boats from all corners of the country, including Ft. Lauderdale, Newport, RI, Annapolis, MD, Chicago, San Diego, San Francisco, Seattle and many points in between. We have the experience to negotiate a fair deal, and to arrange for survey, delivery and commissioning. A buyer should seriously consider having an expert on their side of the deal.  As in real estate, the seller pays the commission. 

We offer a complete line of custom racing and cruising sails from Ballard Sails, including custom carbon membrane sails for Grand Prix programs.    We will measure your boat and offer suggestions to provide the most value for your sail investment.  

Make your sail investment go further, and buy your sails in Montana where there is no sales tax!

Sail Montana, formerly known as Flathead J Boats,  began selling sailboats in the early 1970’s on Flathead Lake, Montana.  Officially a dealer for J Boats in 1977, the business focused on one design racing, primarily selling J24’s and one design sails on Flathead Lake.

In 1999, Captain Pete Sauer, (USCG 100 ton Master) a native Montanan and lifelong sailor, acquired the business and expanded the scope to include larger sailboats and power yachts such as mid-size trawlers and tugs, custom sailboat trailers, delivery and service. Today we serve yachtmen throughout the Pacific Northwest and Western Canada.
