We will be sailing from May 2024. After a one-year sabbatical at sea, we will be there for you as usual from May 2025.


We are Marie Schneider and Jens Rabenstein from Bootsmaklerei.

We broker sailing yachts and motor yachts in the Lübeck Bay. Our specialties are the sale of sailing yachts and advising customers on the purchase of a blue water yacht. We are both enthusiastic sailors and have made our passion our profession.


My name is Jens Rabenstein

I was born in Düsseldorf in 1974 and grew up in Münsterland. I have lived in Lübeck for 18 years. Before boat brokerage, I worked as a self-employed goldsmith for 13 years. An almost two-year break under sail, together with my wife, took us from Lübeck via the English Channel, the Bay of Biscay, along the coasts of Spain and Portugal to the Canary Islands. Since returning, I have devoted myself entirely to my passion for boats. True to the motto "Shape your life", I finally made the decision to set myself new professional goals.

Now, after several years of working in this industry and steadily increasing demand, my special focus is on the presentation and creation of exposés. Image quality and video editing are of great interest to me. The customer should be able to fall in love with the boat without glossing over it. Buyer and seller want to feel well accompanied. Therefore, my personal claim is to treat the customer as I would like to be treated myself.

My name is Marie Schneider

Since 2021 I am part of the boat brokerage. Originally I worked as an economist and statistician, but after a time out on the water, which took me on my own keel from the Netherlands across the Atlantic to the Caribbean and further, it was clear: boats are my passion. So I have my self-employment a few years ago, Marietim, built and mentor people preparing for a life on the water, advise them on boat purchases and impart know-how on sailing, equipment and DIY boat restoration.

Now I am happy that I can count the sale of boats among my activities and use my knowledge in boat brokerage. My aim is to create a high-quality, honest exposé for every boat and to provide customers with the best possible service so that every boat finds a new owner who will enjoy it for a long time. To do this, I draw on my knowledge of social media, photography and videography. I love my job because I deal with beautiful boats every day and meet interesting people.
