How Do I Sell My Boat?

You have two options for getting your boat sold:

  • Sell your boat yourself
  • Use a broker to sell your boat

When You Should Sell A Boat Yourself

If your boat is an older boat (1988 or earlier) or under $60,000 in value, your best approach is to sell the boat yourself. Brokers charge minimum commissions, and if your boat sells for an amount under the minimum commission – you pay the higher cost.

Banks do not finance boats older than 1988.  Buyers looking for older boats go to alternative sights like Craigslist, BoatTrader or Boats.com, not a broker.

When To Use A Professional Broker

For newer boats and sell prices over $80,000, it’s best to use a licensed broker. This sounds like a completely self-serving comment, but a broker saves you headaches, money, and even potential lawsuits. Considering the small cost of brokerage services, and the large downside risk of having something go wrong, it’s worth it to hire the professional assistance of an experienced, licensed, and bonded broker.  There are many details that go into a transaction and many pitfalls. It pays to use professional services.

How much does it cost to sell my boat?

Traditional brokerage houses charge a 10% commission. This is industry standard.  These services are standardized so that you carry the risk and burdens of time and preparation. We use our decades of sales experience and work upfront to alleviate survey issues as best as possible and make sure all the work is done ahead of time for a smooth closing.

The average selling time with this industry model is 347 days according to YachtWorld. This is not how it has to be or how it is with our listings. Our average time on market is less than half the industry standard for boats in our RCL Program.

Our RCL System is designed around your specific boat. The pre-sale preparation process creates high buyer confidence, reduces survey issues and saves you money during the process of selling and when it sells. We offer reduced pre-costs, inspections and maintenance during its time at our docks so once you decide to sell, you can let go and let us bring you offers. Bottom line, with our RCB Program,  your boat is a better qualified listing and the offers are cleaner and more aligned with the strategic pricing

Contact us to discuss our Reduced Cost Listing Program for your specific boat. Our Program offers many built-in services to make and keep your boat more marketable and a cost structure that saves you money and benefit you and the buyer.
