Role and tasks of a broker

The secrets of a successful sale

Why use a broker to sell your boat?

It’s decided, you’re putting your boat up for sale.

From then on, many questions arise about the selling price, the relevance of your ad, the potential buyers and the administrative procedures.

What exactly is a broker, and how can we help you? 

The selling price is an essential element. It must take into account the characteristics of the boat and the current second-hand market. The broker who has sold similar boats before will know what price to choose so that the sale goes through quickly.

A broker knows how to use catchy phrases that will attract the buyer’s attention while providing the information they need to make their choice. The text of the advertisement must be salesy and objective with precise vocabulary.

Photos make a big difference to the success of a boat sale. A good broker will have a person specially trained in photography and editing software. He will have the right equipment (cameras, lights). These professional photos will allow the buyer to see the exterior aesthetics of the boat and the charm of its interior from their screen or magazine page.

How to showcase my boat?

We are an experienced agency with contacts in France, Europe and abroad. Your boat will be offered to an international clientele. Our agency  has  been in existence for many years you will have the benefit of a team with good contacts among all the specialists and enthusiasts of waterways.

By taking care of the publication of advertisements in the window, on the internet and in the press, the brokerage agency will be the privileged interlocutor of future buyers. Thus you will not be disturbed by phone calls, emails, the organization of visits and the reception of French or foreign customers.

The often tedious administrative procedures are taken care of by the broker (sales contracts, navigation permits, property certificates, certificates of conformity, taxes, etc.). The broker knows how to obtain the necessary papers quickly.

The broker is also able to provide all the necessary information concerning administrative issues.

The broker drafts the tailor-made sales contracts, taking into account the specificities of each boat. He must be fully conversant with national and international law, allowing for a quick and secure sale.

The broker is also responsible for the sale of the vessel.

The agency is remunerated with a commission taken from the sale price of the boat. We will only be able to receive this commission once the boat is sold.
