How much will my boat sell for and how quickly will it be sold?
These are the two most common questions asked. The honest response to these two questions is that there is no definite answer.
The value of a yacht is dictated by the market and the demand for the yacht in the market is affected by both internal and external factors.
Factors such as asking price, condition, location, and marketing reach require careful consideration ensuring that the yacht is priced competitively, is well-presented with most defects attended to and that the location does not present a barrier to a purchaser.
Other factors including economic strength, political stability, currency exchange rates, changing social trends and, of course, the time of year also have a bearing on any potential sale. As yacht brokers, we cannot influence these factors but observing them and advising you on the best way to accommodate them is all part of our professional service.
