Selling Your Yacht
Selling your yacht for the right price, and in a timely manner, can be a time-consuming and complex process. Employing a competent yacht broker can take the stress out of the process and ensure you will sell your yacht for the right price. Leilani Wales, CPYB, of AGL Yacht sales, can manage the entire sales process and has substantial experience in overcoming the hurdles and issues that can arise in any yacht sales transaction.
A timely yacht sale at the right price requires a combination of knowledge, experience, and the ability to negotiate at the highest level. Your broker must use her in-depth knowledge of the market to make the process as straightforward as possible. Your broker should have access to a database of sold boats (comparable sales) to assist you in understanding the market value of your yacht and the experience to adjust that value based on your electronics, modifications, and upgrades. Your broker should run and manage every aspect of the sales process, including creating the marketing materials, creating the listing in a specialized MLS, carrying out viewings, negotiating the deal for the seller, arranging the sea trial and survey, and providing the buyer with information regarding financing, insurance, slip availability, and transfer of title, to ensure the buyer stays engaged in the transaction.
In addition to possessing all of the skills and experience discussed above, Leilani Wales, CPYB, of AGL Yacht Sales, can make recommendations to improve your yacht’s presentation and marketability and create a tailor-made marketing plan for you.
