Yacht Sales Grow 104 Percent In First Quarter Of 2021

By Rob Bowman | Posted On Apr 05, 2021

United Yacht Sales is thrilled to announce that our first quarter results include a 104% increase in total sales making it the most successful beginning to a year in the company's history. "The yacht sales industry continues to be driven by consumer demand as the need to recreate safely remains a priority for families," said Peter Schmidt, founder of United Yacht Sales. "Our yacht brokerage team has been extraordinarily busy. The number of pre-owned yachts for sale is down across the U.S., but our team has been successful in finding boats not on the market thanks to our network of 200+ yacht brokers worldwide. We expect to see strong sales and activity through the rest of 2021."

While total sales saw triple-digit growth, it wasn't the only positive statistic for the first quarter. The average price per yacht sales grew 6% over 2020 and 29% over 2019. The total number of boats sold by UYS grew 99% over 2020. "To be able to increase our total number of yachts sold by 99%, while also increasing the average price per deal, is a true testament to the focus of our brokerage team, our support team, and our management team," continued Peter. "We are definitely seeing United Yacht Sales capture a larger piece of available business."

United Yacht Sales has also recently invested more in growing our team to better support our customers and our brokers. Both the marketing team and the yacht closing team have hired new team members to come on board to help continue the growth seen in the last year.
