Sell A Boat

Sell a boat

One of the most important factors to consider when deciding to sell a boat is which brokerage firm you will trust to handle the job. If you do not already have a broker that you know and trust, you must rely on a brokerage that has a good reputation for treating customers right. Here’s how the sales process works:
  • Once you decide to sell your boat, you must decide who will list the boat and handle the complexities of the transaction. Keep in mind, you are trusting your broker to be aboard your boat to show potential buyers, market the vessel effectively, and answer questions about your boat. It is critical to engage a professional and knowledgeable broker that you can trust to look out for you and your asset during the sales process.
  • After you find a broker that you can trust, a listing agreement is executed outlining the terms of the commitment.
  • Your broker will take care of the day-to-day operations involved in selling your boat. This includes marketing the vessel, responding to inquiries, showing the vessel to potential buyers, helping you evaluate offers, and overseeing the inspection and sea trial process.
  • Once an offer is accepted for the purchase of the boat, your broker will help you navigate the standard and customary closing processes including support for survey findings, resolutions, and documentation to ensure a smooth transaction.
Additional considerations:
  • While we have an extensive list of contacts in our archives to market your boat in house to our own clients, the best buyer for your particular boat may be represented by another brokerage. To ensure maximum exposure on the market, we find it important that all of our listings be made available for co-brokerage from the start. This means that we will cooperate with other brokerages to bring you the highest and best offers. Only considering offers originating with the listing broker could cost time and money.
  • NPYB uses the most prevalent platforms to reach buyers. This includes professional online listings, social media, boat shows, and more.
  • Before we bring a listing to the market, we advise sellers on the best way to present the boat for showings and advertising.
  • Photos are critically important to the successful marketing of a boat. We use an experienced professional photographer for all of our listings.
  • We have representation in the US and Canada. This is particularly important in Washington state and British Columbia. We can help clients in both countries and assist with importing boats.
