3. Are Yachts For Sale A Good Investment?

Closing the deal on a sailing yacht or motor yacht is a milestone that few get to experience. Naturally, the Engel & Völkers team sees it the same way as you probably do: an investment in enjoyment, wellness and quality of life. Over the years, we have assisted high net worth individuals from all over the world in realising their dreams without looking back. 

Being the owner of a luxury yacht delivers a thrilling sense of freedom and adventure, allowing you to see your dream destinations in a new light. Onboard a luxury yacht, you take control and can experience glamour without limits or the beauty of a natural environment, as you wish.

4. Motor vs. sailing yachts

Romantic and thrilling at once, sailing yachts are undoubtedly becoming more popular as they offer sporting and peaceful experiences alike, depending on your preference. Nonetheless, the comforts of motor yachts mean they still dominate the global leisure fleet. Powerful and fast, they cover a greater distance in less time. 

In addition, technological advances in motor yacht hull design have resulted in typical drafts that are shallower for a given length, thus simplifying navigation and facilitating access near rocky coves and archipelagos. Apart from this versatility, they also tend to have more deck space and onboard facilities. Crew expenditure is lower, while recruitment is more straightforward, too.

In the long-standing and friendly debate between the motor yacht and sailing yacht factions, the winners have to be the owners – in other words, what best suits each individual. For this reason, while motor yachts represent an excellent choice for exploring islands in the Mediterranean and Caribbean Seas, our portfolio also includes sailing ships that are fully equipped for substantial sea voyages. 

5. Luxury Yacht Sales & Charters

As a brand, Engel & Völkers Yachting Division stands for outstanding attention to detail, discretion and customer care. 

Services consist of:

  • Yacht sales and brokerage, with in-depth research to determine the accurate market value of your craft, from sloops to racers and motor cruisers.
  • Custom-made construction projects, including new builds and refits.
  • Arrangement of berths and moorings in the marina of your choice.
  • Charters of fully crewed motor and sailing yachts.
  • Service packages: advertising, booking and experience management.
  • Implementation and management of targeted marketing strategies, including optimal search results.
  • Professional consultancy services re. financing, yacht management and flag registration requirements.


Primarily, yacht prices depend on length, age and manufacturer credentials. Larger craft often have spacious main decks, with multiple cabins plus crew quarters down below. 

Although more accommodation means a higher price, it means there are more opportunities to customise the available space and make it your own. Globally, including vessels of all specifications, the current average sale price is around €7 million. Of course, superyachts attract notably higher asking prices, especially at higher levels of specification and performance. 


Engel & Völkers Yachting brokers have been offering yacht sales and brokerage services since 2007. Convenient for shipyards, ports and marinas as well as crew and team management for Mediterranean sailing, our Yachting Division headquarters is in the French Riviera with offices in Monaco and Antibes. 

In addition, recent years have seen an exciting journey of expansion from Europe to North America, thus providing a gateway to cruising in the Caribbean Sea and sailing the Pacific Ocean.
