    Where we advertise your boat for sale…

  • We have constant walk-in traffic that view our brochure boards of boat listings.
  • We advertise online with Yachtworld.com, the ECH website and a few other secondary websites.

    What we need to get started…

  • We will go to your boat and take several photos and gather info for the listing.
  • We ask our sellers to provide a copy of their title and any trailer registration so we have proper Hull ID and serial numbers ready so we can prepare a purchase agreement right away once the buyer and seller come to agreement.
  • Once we obtain a buyer and both parties agree on the sale price. We help the buyer arrange survey, financing, etc.
Our brokerage fees start as low as 5% depending on asking price. We sell boats over the winter and will close the boat and hold back a portion of funds until sea-trial in the Spring to cover any major mechanical issues. If you shrink wrap your boat, we ask that you add a zipper door on the back for accessing the boat with potential buyers.
