Important points when selling a yacht
- Presentation of your yacht
It is important to take beautiful, well-arranged photos of your yacht. In the current internet age, the photos are so important that we like to pay attention to good images! In addition, it is important to make the information with the advertisement as complete as possible, the more that people know about the ship in advance, the fewer doubts are raised.
- Interior presentation
During a viewing, an interested party must get the feeling of his “own” ship as much as possible. This means that it is important to remove personal items from the ship and to empty the storage spaces, cabins and refrigerators. For example, a good image of the ship is displayed during a viewing, without anyone’s belongings getting in the way. In addition, it is important that the ship is clean and fresh, the first impression is often decisive! This is also important for taking good photos so that we can present your ship as well as possible.
- Exterior presentation
It is important to present your yacht clean and tidy. If you choose to place your ship with us in the sales harbor, we can, in consultation with you, keep the ship up to date so that it can be viewed at any time.
- The correct asking price
As a ship owner, you are quickly inclined to overestimate the value of your boat. This is partly due to the emotional value that you attach to your boat and the price that was paid for the boat at the time. It is important that the correct asking price is asked, a too high asking price can mean that your boat will be on sale unnecessarily long and that naturally also costs you money. The market situation is constantly changing and that is why we make a personal sales proposal with current market research. This allows us to demonstrate a realistic asking price and expected selling price and / or bids.
