Are you deciding whether or not to use a boat broker to sell your boat? Our clients often ask us of the benefits of selling through a broker versus selling privately. Below we will outline the advantages of utilizing a boat broker to sell your vessel.
Brokers have spent years studying boat values, trends, and will be able to quickly identify the value of your vessel. They know exactly how seasons, market fluctuations, boat condition, and a host of other factors will play in to how much your boat is worth. This will establish a realistic timeline for the sale of your vessel and will save you hours of research.
Many of our clients end up brokering their boats through Yachts 360 after not being able to sell privately. This is usually due to overpricing or simply not knowing the correct way to market their boats. We keep our finger on the pulse of the boating market and will guide the selling process to ensure you receive top dollar while also keeping price within realistic boundaries.
Being an established brokerage allows Yachts 360 to access the largest boat listing website in the world, Yachtworld. Yachtworld is the number one way to maximize the visibility of your boat and locate potential buyers. If you have a larger vessel, it is crucial to have your boat within the Yachtworld system. Serious buyers, and other brokers, check Yachtworld first when searching for larger boats.
