Selling a yacht is slightly more complicated than selling a house and there are more details to manage. It’s the level of complication you would naturally expect for a house that floats!
It’s important to select a broker with experience and a reputation for honesty due to the tedious process of selling your yacht.
We have extensive experience guiding our owners through the sometimes tricky waters of yacht sales.
Marketing is what sets us apart from other brokers. At The Advantaged we cultivate buyers from all corners of the globe, through our various marketing channels, selecting those most appropriate target market for your particular boat style.
We may select from print listing, internet advertisements, and direct mailings to our private list of interested customers who may have chartered with us in the past and are now ready to consider a yacht of their own.
Another specialty area of The Advantaged is understanding pricing strategies that balance the selling price against your needs as a seller. Generally yachts are not considered an appreciating asset, so time on the market it critical. Along with that are storage or slip fees, maintenance, bottom cleaning, and cosmetic repairs. All that adds up and influences the pricing strategy for your yacht.
Like a house, yachts have “curb appeal” and it’s important to keep your yacht looking its best for prospective buyers. That kind of attention to detail takes time and commitment and is one of many qualities that set us apart from other brokers.
The negotiation process can frequently be stressful for both sides. We will guide you through the sometimes tricky negotiations and give you our best advice on what’s in your best interest as the seller.
Every deal is different and there is no one-size-fits-all negotiating strategy. At critical times like these you will appreciate our attention to detail and rapid communication.
