How to Choose YOUR YACHT BROKER

Once you have made the decision to purchase/sell your yacht, it is important to align yourself with a knowledgeable yacht brokerage firm to represent you in your transaction. Honesty, competency, and value are among the traits you should consider when choosing a broker. Having someone you can trust to guide you through this process is essential in creating an efficient and satisfying experience.

A brokerage sells boats to interested parties for a commission. The industry standard is 10%, so be sure to verify the rates before committing. Also, always check the reputation of your potential broker for any complaints that may have been filed against them. Having a broker you can trust is paramount throughout this process.

A good yacht broker is an invaluable ally. They should have a firm grasp of the market and how much to price your yacht, as well as the means to find you potential buyers. Their experience in the yachting industry can guide you through the process and help you to anticipate any obstacles that might be presented along your journey.

Always remember, your yacht broker works for you! Therefore, you should choose someone that is going to fully invest themselves in your transaction. Customer service is more than just being polite, it is a way of doing business. Find someone that is as dedicated to your investment as you are and do not settle for less.

Get to know the person you are going to invest your time and money in before committing. At Yachting Experts, we encourage all potential buyers and sellers to contact our staff and find out how we can help you. Whether you are ready to invest or just looking for an ally in the market, we want to help you.
