Do It Yourself - DIY Yacht Brokerage

DIY or Do It Yourself Yacht Brokerage means that we guide the yacht owner step-by-step through the marketing and sales process on our hourly rate instead of the standard commission of around 6 to 8 percent ex. VAT. Some yacht owners prefer to do as much as possible themselves and try to avoid paying the standard brokerage commission. However selling a boat without an experienced and certified yacht broker is difficult and not without risk. Often a seller needs the knowledge and experience of a yacht broker regarding ships registrations, ships documents, sales contract, ships mortgage, escrow accounts for safe payments, marketing, etc. Moreover on some of the most popular yachting portals, private individuals can't even advertise without a certified yacht broker. If you are able to sell your yacht by yourself and you just need our assistance on specific aspects of the proces, please do not hesitate to drop us a line.
