As a yacht owner, you will be aware of how easy it is to become attached to your craft and the exclusive lifestyle it affords. Nonetheless, if circumstances have changed and the time has come for you to sell up, it is only natural to want to find the most suitable buyer: someone who will appreciate it as much as you do.
At Engel & Völkers Yachting we can fully empathise with that desire. We built our Yachting division around a simple premise: to facilitate the perfect match between a yacht and her owner. We take pride in our extensive track record of smooth yacht sale transactions and in our international reputation for exclusive and attentive service.
Choosing Engel & Völkers to sell your yacht is a decision you will not regret. Here are some reasons why you can trust us with such an important transaction.
1. How to sell a yacht
Understandably, from the initial consultation to the negotiation of an agreement and completion of the sale, most sellers say they want to minimise inconvenience and avoid pitfalls. Here at Engel & Völkers, our experienced yacht sale specialists are up to date regarding market trends, sale values and buyer profiles. Significantly, you can count on the broadest possible exposure to potential buyers, thanks to an in-house marketing team and expert brokers.
2. Where is the best place to sell a boat?
A recognised name in yacht sales and brokerage, Engel & Völkers has an international presence in more than thirty countries on four continents. Office locations include Antibes, Monaco, Nice, Malta, Bodrum, and Newport Beach, California.
E&V's yacht brokerage department dates back to 2007 when company staff sold premium yachts from offices near the shores of the Mediterranean. Over the years, the team network has grown throughout Europe and North America. Nowadays, our 10,000 qualified sales professionals and partners provide clients with the impeccable service they expect.
3. How much is a yacht worth?
Marine craft specialists calculate yacht prices in accordance with vessel size, age and builder credentials. If we include every sailboat, racer and motor cruiser, of every level of specification, the global average purchase price is around $8.4 million (€7.1m). Naturally, the inclusion of superyachts elevates this price tag.
Alternatively, prices are more accessible in the manageably-sized 11 to 12-metre motor yacht category, suitable for day trips and relatively undemanding cruising. Ongoing maintenance is less costly, but it is still possible to add extra amenities should the owner so desire. Even at this smaller end of the scale, therefore, a newer, high-specification 10.5-metre vessel could attract a higher sale price than one which is older, simpler and slightly larger.
4. How long does it take to sell a yacht?
Often, clients need a proactive, organised and efficient agent to achieve an early sale. To ensure professional service and timely results, we appoint our sales partners with care, selecting only the highest calibre and most respected representatives within the marine sector.
Irrespective of location, Engel & Völkers brokers work with a global database of verified prospective purchasers. Sales staff match these high net worth individuals to the yachts of their dreams through our actively curated sales portfolio.
