Bud started boating as a young boy with his father, who owned a 27-foot Chris Craft cabin cruiser back in the 60s. Bud has owned over 30 boats and currently sails his 38 Island Packet and powers in his 1938 Chris Craft Woody and World Cat Catamaran. 

40 plus years in the marketing media business gave Bud a solid background to enter the brokerage business over 12 years ago. His years of client relations have also given him the skills to work professionally with buyers and sellers.  

Contact Bud so he can assist you in fulfilling your boating needs. 



Bud Mueller’s skill and energetic approach to yacht sales were suggested to us in early February 2022. While maintaining a pleasant and patient attitude, he answered questions clearly and worked efficiently toward a successful conclusion of the sale process.

I can’t say enough good things about Bud.
Bud was very efficient, kept in touch with us regularly, could be contacted easily (and I had a lot of questions).
Bud was patient, kind, and understanding. Bud Mueller is an excellent choice for your boat broker.

Bud Mueller helped my wife and I purchase a boat early this year.

I was very impressed with the ease and skill at which Bud navigated us through the Florida boat market.The deal itself went very smoothly.The owner of this boat was in Canada, the boat was in Florida and we are from Vermont.

We could not be more pleased with the service that was provided by Bud Mueller and Pier One Yacht Sales.

~ Ralph and Rebecca S. Burlington, Vt.


Our experience with Bud was great. Bud is very professional and has a terrific sense of humor. He knows how to make a potential buyer feel comfortable and not pressured.  He always made himself available to answer questions.

If we ever have to list a vessel for sale, we would feel confident having Bud as our listing broker. Thank you, Bud!

I retained Bud Mueller of Pier One Yacht Sales to sell my Catalina 42 sailboat. He did a wonderful and professional job of listing and marketing the boat at a price higher than I anticipated. This resulted in a sale that went smoothly and worked out positively for all concerned. I highly recommend him as a yacht broker.
