The Selling Process

Your boat will be offered with a full color multiple photo listing and a multi-page detailed description. We are present for the showing of your vessel to prospective buyers, will assist in preparing a formal offer to purchase, and will help throughout the negotiation process. We are present for the Survey and Sea Trial and will work to get the sale of your boat closed quickly. We have close working relationship with a number of nearby yards who will assist in the survey and short haul process, in water or “on the hard” storage, and will also effect maintenance and repairs to help get your vessel sold.

Once we have found a potential buyer, we work closely with buyer and seller during the process of negotiating a “Purchase and Sale Agreement”. And once the Agreement is signed by both parties, we will work to satisfy any and all contingencies that must be met before the close of the sale and we will keep the progress of the sale moving forward to meet the specific dates outlined in the Purchase and Sales Agreement. With our working relationships with other professionals within the industry, we are adept at recommending and arranging boat financing and boat insurance for our buyers, thereby avoiding some of the pitfalls that can derail a boat sale.

Our buyers have the confidence that when they put in an offer and accompany it with a significant deposit of earnest money, the money is held in our escrow account. They have the confidence that their funds are protected and know that they are working with licensed and bonded yacht brokers. They also have the confidence that at closing, they will have free and clear title to the vessel they are buying, with no uncertainties as to title, bank loans, liens or outstanding payoffs that need to be made prior to them receiving their vessel with clear title.
