We begin with a complete inspection of your unit by a member of our service staff. We outline any necessary repairs needed to put the boat in top selling condition. Many prospective boat buyers are very diligent with their inspection process and having any issues addressed beforehand can save yourself from losing a buyer . In some cases there are repairs that may require a seller investment, but the return on this investment has been consistently proven. Most buyers are looking for a unit “ready to go” the value of a clean and a turn key unit is appealing.
Our service team is ready to assist in the sales process. If concerns arise in a buyer’s survey or sea trial, we’re ready to respond. Additionally, we understand that sometimes a boat needs to better “fit” the buyers’ needs. We are prepared to handle custom projects, rigging, electronics, or fishing needs & Extended warranties can be purchased for most units. Our goal is to provide honest and knowledgeable guidance to both buyers and sellers.
80%+ of today’s buyers start their search online. We advertise on 3 different websites sites along with popular social media ads. Our partnership with other local dealerships also boost potential brokerage exposure. Highway exposure along Bus 40 and daily customer traffic makes up for almost 50% of our sales !
Financing & Trades
Some potential buyers simply cannot purchase their next boat without the convenience of trading or financing. In certain situations we may be financially capable to actively consider trades on brokerage contracts , find a buyer for their trade or offer competitive financing if needed.
Notary , USCG , Boat and Trailer Registrations , Financing and Bank Liens are all handled in house.
After inspection of your unit we will discuss an amount that we believe is a fair market price that seller agrees to accept , any proceeds collected after the completion of the sale will be retained by the broker. The average discount on brokerage is 10% of selling price.
