Think of Yachts Direct Connect™ and it’s staff as partners in your business.

Yachts Direct Connect™ advertises in all of the major boating and yachting publications as well as the informative industry websites.
The Three Keys
PRICE – The initial sale price offered when a yacht is first listed and advertised garners the greatest interest from potential buyers. Buyers compare prices to the yachts they are looking for and then start the process of comparisons. The standard brokerage commission always influences the owner’s asking price knowing they have to give up 10% of the final selling price is sales commissions. Using Yachts Direct Connect™ allows the seller to offer a lower initial asking price and the ability to better negotiate offers and survey allowances thanks to the lower commission rates charged by Yachts Direct Connect™. When buyers use Yachts Direct Connect™ as their broker they stand to make an, even better deal financially with the added benefit of “survey reimbursement.” This all adds up to attracting more potential buyers to the yacht owner when using Yachts Direct Connect™ as their broker.
CONDITION – It is the owner’s responsibility for the condition the yacht is in for showings. Yachts Direct Connect™ will identify potential problems and make suggestions we believe will result in better showings. A little money well spent will bring more serious buyers to the table improving the likelihood of a sale. A clean yacht and well maintained/organized engine room reassures potential buyers they are viewing a yacht that is less likely to have significant problems in the near future. Again, this improves the likelihood of a sale.
ADVERTISING – Proper advertising and a professional presentation is critical to attracting serious buyers to your yacht. Many brokerage firms use “minimum” advertising dollars to expose your yacht to the buying public. Yachts Direct Connect™ clients take control of selling their yacht by sharing the advertising expense which ensures greater exposure due to expanded advertising compared to the broader market and a more professional presentation of their yacht to the buying public.
THE ATTRACTION – All three “Keys” combine to provide the owner the greatest opportunity to sell their yacht.
