Free Yacht Appraisal

    If you’re ready to invest in a yacht, then the first step to take is choosing the right yacht broker. Not every broker is the same. You need to research to figure out who will find the best yacht for you, your family, and your needs.

    Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker’s team of professionals can help you navigate through the buying or selling process. We proudly serve all properties throughout Deerfield Beach, Florida, and the surrounding cities.

    Buying Process

    Finding the ideal yacht is a time-consuming process. Whether you are at the looking stage or you already found your ideal vessel, we can help you get through the purchase process at no cost.

    Every yacht, whether pre-owned or new, has benefits and drawbacks. Finding and buying the perfect yacht can be an exciting journey that will bring you years of enjoyment.

    First, you need to ask yourself some questions to determine what yacht would fit your needs:

    • Establish your budget. This includes not only the purchase but ongoing costs.
    • Determine if you want new or pre-owned.
    • Determine how long you plan to use the yacht.
    • Determine what type of yacht you want.
    • Determine if you will be docking or trailering.
    • Consider your engine choices.
    • Determine the size of the yacht that fits your needs.

    When a pre-owned yacht is well-maintained, it can provide many years of trouble-free boating. A professional yacht broker has the available resources to make the purchase process run smoothly and minimize your risk.

    Once you have decided on the yacht you want to buy, your broker will formally present your offer through a purchase agreement contract to the seller. The purchase agreement defines the details and conditions for the transactions.

    It is essential to follow these steps during the purchase process.

    1. Search the MLS for your desired boat.
    2. Choose the vessel you want.
    3. Make a formal offer (contract).
    4. Have the seller accept your offer.
    5. Schedule a survey. This is optional but recommended. This step is usually required for insurance and financing.
    6. Conduct a sea trial.
    7. Conduct a review of the Deficiencies List from the Survey.
    8. Acceptance or rejection of the vessel
    9. Full payment submitted (held in Escrow until closing)
    10. Obtain Insurance
    11. Documentation or Registration 
    12. Closing

    Selling Process

    The selling process is a totally different process than buying. Our professionals at Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker can help you get the highest financial gain from the sale of your yacht.

    The first thing we need to establish is the true market value of your boat. This step requires research and thorough evaluation. Determining the true value of your yacht is one of the most important factors to a successful sale.

    Several sellers struggle through this step listing for an unrealistic price that doesn’t reflect the real boat’s value and don’t see results while other boats sell.

    At Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker, we have a process to determine what your yacht is worth and what it would sell for. We are not looking to list your vessel. We are here to sell it.

    Our team will research the market for comparable boats currently on the market and run reports on similar sold vessels in the last twelve to eighteen months. We will review the data with you and arrive at a true market value based on several factors.

    If you approve the suggested selling price, we go through your boat from the buyer’s perspective and make recommendations to improve your yacht’s marketability.

    It is worthwhile to have your yacht detailed so the potential buyer gets a good first impression. The buyer may lose interest by an unfavorable appearance thinking it may be an indication of the overall maintenance of your boat.

    Our brokers also recommend that you have maintenance records available for the buyer to review if they wish. This is also a good time to go over and make any repairs that are needed. It is better to fix the small problems now than to have a long Deficiencies List from the Survey.
