Why should you use a yacht broker to sell your yacht?

Updated: Jun 20, 2023

Selling a boat can be a complex and high-value transaction, much like a real estate sale, and is usually best done with the help of a professional yacht broker. A yacht broker's primary responsibility is to manage the communication and information flow between the seller, other brokers, and potential buyers.

Advantages of selling your yacht with a broker:

  • Brokers have a network of clients and may already have potential buyers in mind and have a solid understanding of how to properly price a yacht.

  • Working with a broker can get the yacht sellers listed on YachtWorld, the largest online database of new and used power and sailboats for sale.

  • The broker will advise you of any improvements that should be made to make your boat competitive in today's market, identify possible problems and solutions, and help organize upgrades and repairs.

  • The broker may help locate easy-access moorings or storage for the duration of the listing.

  • Brokers will understand the principles of the brokerage profession—things like certificates of ownership, security agreements, bills of sale, and other documents needed to register and transfer titles to boats.

  • They will understand maritime and admiralty liens for the type of vessels they represent, as well as mortgaging and transferring title to documented vessels.

  • They will understand agency contracts, listing agreements, closing statements, deposit requirements, and escrowed accounts to safeguard funds.

How to choose the right broker

Choosing the right broker is an important step in selling your boat. Fundamentally, if you sell the boat yourself, you won't need to pay the broker's commission, but without assistance, it will often take you longer to sell the boat, and you may have to settle for a lower price.

Overall, working with a broker can help a seller navigate the complex process of selling a boat and ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
