When it's time to sell your yacht what factors should you consider when choosing a yacht broker? The answer is pretty straightforward - the broker's experience, a thorough marketing plan and trust.
Galati Yacht Sales has been in business since 1970 and is one of the largest privately-owned dealerships in the world. Our yacht brokers participate in the Certified Professional Yacht Broker (CPYB) program and exam, which is a nationally-recognized certification that evaluates a broker's experience, skills and know-how. Additionally, they attend ongoing training whether product training at one of the yacht manufacturers or seminars sponsored by professional organizations. This helps us truly understand the market.
Conduct a market analysis: your yacht broker will research your yacht make and model, what is currently on the market and what has sold recently to give you an understanding of your yacht’s current value.
Perform a walkthrough to obtain an overall evaluation of your yacht.
Compose the listing including a marketing description that is keywords optimized for online channels.
Arrange a photo/video package.
Final review of preliminary listing, this is your opportunity to provide any additional input.
Our experience not only helps you price your yacht competitively by accessing sold boat data to prepare a comparable marketing analysis (CMA) but also helps you navigate the survey process, negotiations and other situations that may arise while your boat is on the market. The Comparative Marketing Analysis is a key tool that will show what is currently on the market, pricing, features and options. It will also show you boats like yours that have sold in the past year.
Galati’s product knowledge and experience is unparalleled in the yachting industry.
