Yacht Brokers work much like real estate agents to sell your boat; they work hard to facilitate the sale of their client’s listings. They also protect and promote the interest of their clients.

Yacht Brokers have a variety of tools available to them to help with determining price, advertising, and legal requirements of the sale of your boat, or yacht.

Yacht Brokers often specialize in particular boat types, sizes and specific regions. So, choose a Yacht Broker who already represents boats and yachts similar to yours, and who operates their business  in the general area where your boat is located. Yacht Broker Bill Wright has an office in St. Petersburg, but is very familiar with all of Tampa Bay, and the beaches, and the entire West Coast of Florida.

    The Yacht Broker helps you determine a fair asking price: To help ensure a quick sale, it is essential to ask a fair price. A good Yacht Broker can help establish fair-market value for the boat through access to actual sold boat data, as reported by other brokerage firms. They do this using a tool not available to the public.

  • The Yacht Broker helps prepare an advertising strategy: A professional Yacht Broker will outline a plan for how a boat is to be advertised in the most appropriate media. For example, the best means to promote a 30′ Catalina is vastly different than the strategy for a 88′ Sunseeker. The Yacht Broker’s objective is to devise a strategy with the best chances of reaching the most interested and qualified audience for your boat.
  • The Yacht Broker prepares the listing for the public: The Yacht Broker will prepare the listing for distribution in various electronic and print media, for print and email distribution to clients and other brokers, and for distribution to prospects at boat shows, open houses, and walk-in inquiries.
  • The Yacht Broker prepares the listing for the broker-to-broker Multiple Listing Service: When you list your boat for sale with a Yacht Broker, your broker may also prepare the yacht listing for co-brokerage by other brokers using alternate MLS systems.
  • The Yacht Broker may help you prepare the boat: A good Yacht Broker will advise of any improvements that should be made to compete within today’s market, identify possible problems and solutions, and help organize upgrades & repairs. The broker may also help locate easy-access moorings/storage for the duration of the listing.
  • The Yacht Broker has professional know-how: Professional Yacht Brokers will understand the principals of the brokerage profession, such as certificates of ownership, security agreements, bills of sale and other documents needed to register and transfer titles of 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.
  • The Yacht Broker helps with Sea Trial and Survey: The buyer will usually request a sea trial and the services of a marine surveyor. Buyers pay for the surveys and for hauling the boat out of the water for inspection. Your Yacht Broker will usually attend the sea trial and marine survey and help you determine how any discovered deficiencies should be addressed in the purchase negotiations.
