Berthon is represented at Southampton, Dusseldorf, Cannes, Newport, Annapolis, Miami and Paris Boat Shows, as well as a number of regional shows including Mandelieu, Sandbanks and Jersey. In addition we host our own brokerage show – the Berthon International Collection, an annual event originally started in 1995 which runs concurrent with the Southampton Boat Show each September. We also attend annual brokerage shows such as Antibes and Newport. These events are specifically targeted to market our brokerage listings.
All of these can be downloaded from our website which also offers general access to information about all the brokerage yachts that we have for sale. The website is updated and optimised on a monthly basis.
Berthon advertises widely in the international yachting press including Boat International, Yachting World, Motor Boat & Yachting, Seahorse, Yachting Monthly and various lifestyle publications as appropriate.
Berthon UK – our HQ – open 7 days a week and on average 80 yachts for sale on site either afloat or on our ‘land marina’ of 3 custom built gantries, each of around 220’ and of varying heights to suit all our listings. It is also home to Berthon Boat Company and Lymington Marina, our sister companies. We have an experienced selling team and support staff, and where we also sell new Windy Boats of Norway, act for Dashew Offshore, and are the acknowledged experts for the sales of pre-owned Discoverys, as well as being exclusive brokers for the World Cruising Club and the Ocean Cruising Club.
Berthon France – in Golfe Juan in the yachting centre of the Cote d’Azur. We offer a professional brokerage service and have excellent local knowledge enabling you to get the best out of this area. The office is headed up by Bruno Kairet and Isabelle Skaf assists him in the Office. In France we also distribute Windy Boats of Norway.
Berthon USA – the office is in a centre of yachting on the East Coast of the USA at Newport Rhode Island. Alan Baines, Jennifer Stewart and Bill Rudkin, bring a wealth of knowledge of the market and years of brokerage experience. Jennifer was the Nautor Swan agent in the USA for over 12 years. In the USA we distribute Contest, Moody and Rustler yachts.
Whichever office you are co-ordinating with, we will keep you in touch with the market, values and the presentation of your yacht. The market changes all the time so you need to know this.
Once we have found a buyer we conduct the sale on your behalf. We are members of the YBDSA (Yacht Brokers, Designers & Surveyors Association) and MYBA (Mediterranean Yacht Brokers Association). All Berthon documentation has been drafted for us by Hill Dickinson in London. The process works this way:
You will see that you have the option of entering into a Central Listing arrangement with Berthon. This is our preferred route. Central Listings receive priority treatment as we control all aspects of the marketing. We are delighted to work on an Open Listing arrangement but by the nature of the contract we cannot exercise the same level of control over the marketing.
At Berthon, our aim is to find a purchaser for your yacht promptly at market value. We work for you, using our unrivalled experience within the brokerage market.
Call Berthon on 01590 679222 to discuss the purchase or sale of your yacht.
