Professional knowledge of boat sales

Yacht brokerage is a combination of traditional knowledge and professional experience combined with the most modern media and software. Every independent White Whale Yachtbrokers office has the experience and know-how. With an annual turnover of approximately € 30.000.000,- in used vessels, you can be sure that you are dealing with an experienced party and that your chances of a successful boat sale are the highest.

We are well versed in checking property certificates, insurance contracts, land register registrations, mortgages, deed of delivery, export documents and other matters required for registering and (international) transfer of ownership. The brokers have knowledge of the current market and have the right contracts (in several languages) and a protected client account for the payments.

Setting a responsible asking price when selling boats

We have the experience and knowledge to set a responsible asking price for your boat. For a good chance of a successful boat sale this is an essential part. A White Whale yacht broker has the most up-to-date data available in the industry to work with you to determine the right price in the market to sell your boat.

Set up a marketing strategy and the adverts

Your White Whale yacht broker will set up a marketing plan for your boat which is optimized specifically for your boat for sale. There are many different types of yachts, so customization is a must in order to create a maximum chance of success.

The goal of your broker is to bring your yacht to the attention of the right audience. Your yacht broker will draw up the necessary advertisements (free of charge!) and take care of the distribution on various electronic media as well as printed media, including every edition in the Yachtfocus Magazine. With this we will not only bring your yacht to the attention of a large audience, but we will also approach the suitable candidates from our own huge European network directly and actively with a mailing. We can also make a 360 degree presentation of your boat.

Prepare boats for sale

We advise you on any improvements that need to be made to your boat to be able to compete with other offers. We will discuss any obstacles and solutions with you and can help you to carry out any upgrades and repairs if required. We will also help you find the right berth and/or winter storage if necessary.

Inspection, trial run and delivery of your vessel

Usually the buyer will request a trial run and inspection of your boat for sale. The costs of the expert and the crane are for the buyer. Your yacht broker will normally be present at this trial run and inspection in order to steer things in the right direction and to find a solution in case of any problems. When this process is over and the payments and documents are all in order, the ship will be delivered to the new owner by signing a Deed of Delivery.

A buyer then often needs help preparing the ship for the journey to the new berth or for transport by truck or ocean-going vessel. White Whale has the contacts and knowledge to guide this process and give the new owner a good start.
