As a professional yacht brokerage firm, it is our promise and commitment to our clients to always market their yachts for sale to the fullest extent possible and ensure a positive experience. While this might mean we will give up half of our commission to another brokerage firm that introduces a buyer, it is our obligation to get your boat in front of as many potential, targeted boat shoppers as possible.
Did you know that United Yacht Sales puts 100% of our listings into both major industry MLS systems? We never hold your listing back in order to sell it "in-house". While an in-house sale is always preferred, we don't believe it's in our customers' best interests to not advertise their boat in as many places as possible. When you list with UYS, your boat will automatically feed to all of our competitors' websites and as many boat shopping sites as possible.
If you're considering listing your sportfish, you need to ask your broker these questions:
1.) Will my boat be immediately sent to your entire company?
2.) Will my boat be sent to your competitors' websites?
3.) Will my boat be listed automatically on SportfishTrader.com?
4.) Does your company have at least 25,000 people that follow you on social media?
United Yacht Sales will now automatically send any sportfishing boat for sale we have listed to the newest website and social media platform tailored for serious anglers, SportfishTrader.com.
Sportfish Trader is not just a website with available sportfish listings, there is also a significant audience on social media that closely follows the content produced. Sportfish Trader's Instagram channel has more than 31,000 followers and a Facebook Group of over 14,000. Greg Graham, previous winner of the United Yacht Sales Top Gun award for most sales, continually hires Sportfish Trader founder Stephen Momot to photograph and advertise his listings on this platform.
Greg's newest listing "OHHH BOY", a 58-foot Convertible built by Merritt Boatworks, was the most recent listing to be featured. This custom boat has received a professional photo shoot, video, and will be continually marketed until sold. It has received several thousand "likes" on both United and Sportfish Trader's Facebook and Instagram channels. It's also listed here on SportfishTrader.com.
"The content that Steve is able to create and publish through Sportfish Trader gives him a very unique and qualified audience," said Greg. "My phone starts ringing it seems like any time my listing gets featured on social media. I don't care if it's a $300,000 classic sportfish or a $10 million custom boat, it seems like there are buyers for all types of fishing boats in his audience."
With over 200 professional yacht brokers worldwide, United Yacht Sales has the largest network of boat buyers and sellers in the industry. Every listing is automatically emailed to every yacht broker in the company and is eligible for discussion or questions on our proprietary broker forum that connects our team. Your boat then begins the process of being distributed to all of the major brokerage firm websites in the industry, as well as boat shopper websites like SportfishTrader.com. Combined with our massive email database and social media following, we will sell your boat fast and for top dollar.
