Sell Your Boat Fast In This Market

There has never been a better time to sell your boat or yacht.

We know you've heard that before, but this truly is one of the best markets for boat owners to sell that we have seen in a very long time. Never before have there been so many factors influencing the market:

  • The pandemic fueling a need to get outdoors and on the water
  • Boating is the perfect recreation for a family
  • Low inventory of pre-owned boats on the market
  • A scarcity of raw materials creating a new boat inventory shortage

All of these factors are creating an environment for quick sales of boats that are in good condition, priced right, and marketed effectively.

United Yacht Sales has a proven track record of being able to sell yachts quickly and for the highest amount possible. From motor yachts to sportfishing boats, we have the expertise on staff to produce results. In the 1st quarter alone, United Yacht Sales saw a 104% increase in boats closed for our best opening quarter ever. According to our industry data, pre-owned inventory at the major U.S. brokerage firms is down 30% - 40% which means new listings are getting multiple offers. 

If you want to sell your boat, call us to get started at 1-(772) 463-3131 or fill out the form on this page with your information. We are confident we can get your boat sold in that time period.

 

Here are some of the proven tactics we use to find multiple buyers for your boat or yacht.

Our Monthly 'Hot List' Program Sells Featured Boats Within 4 Weeks

The monthly 'Hot List' features the most exciting boats to come to market. A panel of experienced, professional yacht brokers votes on the list each month taking into account the boat itself, the market, and its price. Over the last year, one in three of the boats listed has come under contract within four weeks of appearing on the list! This is great exposure for your boat!

 

Strategic Social Media Promotions

The reach of social media is impossible to ignore in today's age of digital information. United Yacht Sales uses strategic targeting to find the right buyers or social media for your vessel. From utilizing owner's groups, to working with other highly-engaged boating pages, to spending our own social media budget targeting prospective buyers, we will get your boat in front of hundreds of thousands of people on social media. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram.

"I already have the boat under contract in one day and for over the asking price," said Steve Castellini on April 28th, one day after his 2009 Viking Yachts 50 Convertible went live on the market. Steve's listing went through our social media promotion the minute it went live. "I have been getting leads all day long and probably could have sold the boat three times over!"
