These are the most common questions put to any professional yacht broker by their client. The truthful reply to these two questions is that there is no definite answer.
The value of a yacht is dictated by the market. The demand for the yacht in the market is affected by both internal and external factors. Internal factors include asking price, condition, location and marketing reach.
External factors include economic strength, political stability, currency exchange rates, changing social trends and, of course, the time of the year. We cannot influence these factors, but an important part of our job is to advice our clients on how to accommodate them to ensure that the listing remains competitive within the market and to ensure the best possible chance of securing a quick and efficient sale at the best possible price.
In a challenging market, deciding which broker will handle the sale of your yacht is a key decision.
A lot is talked about commission rates which becomes only relevant once a buyer is found. If the yacht remains unsold, a favorable commission rate is irrelevant.
At YachtFull, we aim to provide a thorough, practical and efficient service for yacht sales. Yacht buyers have access to an enormous amount of choice and your yacht needs to stand out in terms of information available and pictorial content. It is essential to work with professional photo and video material to show yachts to their best advantage. We will create a walk-through video of your yacht showing the features within each cabin and on deck. This enables the prospective purchaser to view the layout and gives them a general overview before making an inspection.
Not only is your yacht marketed on our website, but we also list it on the top websites in the industry and social media advertising to make sure your boat for sale goes viral! All particulars are kept up to date in real time.
We consider that the sale of your yacht is a voyage that we undertake with you as the owner. We will therefore be in touch regularly to update you on where we have got to with the sale, to discuss market conditions with you and to assess how she is being received in the market. In this way you are in a position to make an informed decision when an offer is made on your yacht.
We prefer to do the job thoroughly and charge a proper commission rather than charge less, and reduce the level of service offered. In our view, in an ever-changing market it is important to have every weapon possible available in your sales armory.
