Selling a Boat
Pricing your boat is very important since the starting price can easily make or break the sale of your boat. Asking too much may dissuade potential buyers from requesting more information, while asking too little may make many buyers suspicious and wary of making an offer. This is why it is so important to let a professional broker conduct a market analysis to not only find the book value but also survey the market.
There are many factors that play into how long it may take to sell your boat. These factors include the quality of your boat listing (Does it include photos and video? Do you have maintenance records for the duration of ownership?). In addition, price is likely the biggest factor in time to sale. If you choose to price your boat at or below market value, it may take you less time to sell it.
It depends on where and how you list your boat for sale. There are industry standards for brokerage services of a licensed professional broker. Since most sales are co-brokered it important that the commission structure allow room for both the selling and buying broker to realize a revenue amount. If you list on Top Yacht, you will pay only a commission after the sale.
No! Regardless of price point, type or size, Top Yacht will help you reach the most boat buyers worldwide. This includes all types of boat buyers interested in a wide variety of boat types and price ranges—big or small.
Try to use the boat builder’s specs, minimum draft, exact dimensions, on-board equipment, electronics, engine hours, tank capacities, accessories, outfittings and brand names. Clean boat from all angles – bow to stern – both in and out of the water. Determine if you have any liens or clear title, all registrations, service history, possible loan payoff.
A boat bill of sale is a contract used to transfer ownership of a vessel from a seller to a buyer. The agreement must be signed by both parties and may also require a witness signature, boat financing lender approval/signature, and in some cases a notary to notarize. The bill of sale should typically only be filled out and signed once the seller has delivered the watercraft to the buyer, and the buyer has remitted payment to the seller. All of these transactions are orchestrated by a professional broker.
Yes, selling your craft with our Warranty Plan may assist in its sale.
An extended Warranty may seem like an unnecessary cost right now. Or, maybe you believe that whatever small things may go wrong with your craft, it probably won’t cost as much as an extended Warranty Plan. The startling truth is that it only takes one expensive system or component to fail in your craft to make an extended Warranty worth every penny.
