Looking to buy or sell your boat or yacht this summer? Look no further than Calm Seas Yachting. We understand that selling your boat can seem daunting, which is why we’ve compiled our top 5 tips to make the process easier and more successful.
Tip 1: Clean and de-clutter.
Before you list your boat for sale, ensure that it is clean and de-cluttered. Buyers want to envision themselves in the space, so remove any personal belongings and ensure that everything is in working order.
Tip 2: Price it right.
Research the market value of similar boats in your area to price your vessel correctly. Overpricing will turn off potential buyers, while underpricing will mean leaving money on the table. Calm Seas Yachting can help you determine a fair market price for your boat.
Tip 3: Set the stage.
Capture potential buyers’ attention with high-quality photographs and proper marketing materials. Include a comprehensive list of your boat’s features and updates, such as the year of manufacture, size, engine type and horsepower, and any notable options.
Tip 4: Create demand.
Utilize social media platforms and network with fellow boaters and brokerages to increase visibility and drive up interest in your listing. Emphasize the great features your boat offers and the care you’ve taken to maintain it.
Tip 5: Be prepared to negotiate.
Buyers may try to negotiate the final sale price, so do your research and know the estimated price range you’re willing to accept. Avoid making emotional decisions, and consider partnering with Calm Seas Yachting, who can help you negotiate the best possible deal.
