If you’d like to sell your boat, you have several options but the easiest and most reliable way is to list your boat with a broker. However, there’s more to it than that. Not every Sydney boat broker is the same. You want a boat broker who provides an honest market appraisal of your vessel, is respectful of your privacy, and looks after the details for you so that you can get on with enjoying the process of seaching for your next boat.
Here are some tips for getting great results when selling your boat with a Sydney boat broker.
Listing your boat with a broker is the best way to get great results
A broker will save you time and money. You don’t have to spend hours on the phone or driving around town trying to find a potential buyer for your boat. Nor will you have to organise photos, listings or inspections. A broker has all that expertise at their fingertips and will be able to sell your boat faster than if you tried doing it yourself.
- A broker will be able to sell your boat for more money than if you tried doing it yourself. Brokers know how much boats similar to yours have sold for in the past, so they can help set an appropriate asking price at the beginning of the process. Not only is this transparent with the buyers, but it also saves you time by targeting only those that can afford your boat.
- Marketing strategies used by brokers include direct email campaigns, social media marketing, database marketing and drone and video footage that targets specific demographics, where they live within proximity of the boat and whether or not their boating lifestyle and skill level matches your boat. Segmenting the market like this means we can sell your luxury boat faster because we focus on the buyers that matter the most.
