Pricing your vessel properly is one of the important first steps in finding the right buyers. Price too high, and you turn away potential buyers. Price too low, and you leave money on the table.
Our brokers have decades of experience pricing and selling boats. All Seacoast brokers have direct access to the latest sold boats database, a worldwide MLS, and pricing programs used by the marine lenders in determining value.
By combining this important data with a feel for the current market pulse, we can help you set the right price for your boat for a quick sale worthy of your vessel.
Our team of yachting professionals has an average of 20 years of experience in yacht sales. We understand the passion that goes into boat ownership, and are experienced in both the buying and selling process for all kinds of boats and boaters, from small day-sailers to luxury power yachts. We will help you get your boat ready for successful showings, and find the right leads to secure a quick and satisfactory sale. We can sort out the tire kickers from the buyers and close deals, so you can spend your time preparing for your next adventure.
We are the only yacht brokerage that has a local presence in 6 harbors from Santa Barbara to San Diego, offering service as unique as the local harbor community. We have deep relationships in each of our harbor communities, and can access the right people and resources to support the sale of your boat. Whether you need to know the best surveyors, mechanics, or sail maker, or you need to find a slip for your boat, we can help.
Our local knowledge becomes your local knowledge, our relationships become your relationships. Our close contact with marinas in all areas also allows us to assist in locating slips for buyers.
The visual representation of your boat is critical in bringing buyers. By developing a visual marketing package for your vessel, we can properly present it to buyers worldwide. Depending on the vessel, we utilize still photography, walkthrough videos, virtual 3D tours, and even drone footage. We present listings to potential buyers worldwide on our website, Google pages, and social media accounts, and e-mail marketing, as well as YachtWorld and BoatTrader.
Today’s buyers shop online first!
We utilize the latest digital contract and signing technology to ensure painless and seamless deal flow. With electronic listing management from first contact to closing, we offer complete electronic resources for deal paperwork. Buyers can make offers, sign contracts, and even close deals using their smart phone or computer. If you like to keep it old school, though, we can meet you in person and walk you through each step of closing a deal, from signing your listing agreement to receiving funds once you sell your boat.
Our Brokers will guide you every step of the way to ensure that you get the best price with the least amount of hassle.
You can expect regular updates of all activity including showings and offers.
