    Why Use a Yacht Broker to Help You Buy Your Yacht?

    Yacht brokers are like real estate agents. They are the people to call to find and purchase a yacht. They are also the people hired to list, represent, and sell boats for them. 

    Traditionally, it is the seller that pays the commission of a yacht broker- not the buyer. However, brokers have a duty to both buyer and seller in every sale transaction.

    Below are the broker’s roles for the buyer.

    The Initial Inquiry

    A professional broker will listen to the needs and wants of the client. They will help you determine if the yacht you are calling on is the right one for you at the best value. They can objectively tell you about the condition of the yacht before you decide whether or not to spend your time looking and inspecting the boat. 

    A professional broker will determine if there are similar yachts on and off the market, its history, how long it has been on the market, and the motivation of the seller. Anyone can ask for the prices of yachts, but only a professional broker has an intimate knowledge of current market conditions, familiarity with similar boats, and information on recent sales prices and time on the market. 

    Boat Loan and Marine Insurance

    You may want to pre-qualify for a boat loan before buying a yacht. This will provide you with some added leverage and breathing room when you’re negotiating prices. Fort Lauderdale Yacht Broker offers a variety of specialist marine lenders

    Making an Offer on a Pre-Owned Yacht

    A professional yacht broker can help you decide on a realistic offer that can increase the chance of buying a pre-owned boat for a fair and reasonable price. They will prepare a document called an Offer to Purchase for your signature. This document should indicate the terms of the sale including obligations that you and the seller have agreed to, and when these obligations will be fulfilled.

    Making an Offer on a New Yacht

    Dealers taking trade-ins will inform you of any tax issues and tax savings associated with the trade-in. Price negotiations may include making your new yacht available to show to other dealership clients in the future.

    Depending on the type of your vessel, whether it is custom-built, semi-custom, or a production model, there is usually a basic cost and transportation expenses from the builder to the dealership.

    Paperwork

    A professional yacht broker is familiar with all the paperwork requirements for each state or province, from the initial Offer to Purchase and Bill of Sale to licensing and registration. They understand maritime and admiralty liens for the type of vessels they represent, as well as agency contracts, listing agreements, closing statements, deposit requirements, and escrowed accounts to safeguard funds.

    Sea Trial and Survey

    If you are the buyer of a pre-owned vessel, you will usually request a sea trial and the services of a marine surveyor. Your yacht broker will attend the sea trial and marine survey with you to help you determine how to properly address the nearly inevitable yacht survey issues and put the problems in context. They can help estimate the time and cost of correcting, and where to secure accurate quotes for items that are unfamiliar.

    Negotiating the Deal

    A professional yacht broker can use their position as a middleman to keep the negotiations between buyer and seller moving to a successful conclusion.
