Berthon Market Report // 2017

April 21, 2017


We release a yacht market report annually and this year is no exception. We look carefully at the trends and happenings in our markets, and there are reports from the brokerage team focusing on their individual parts of the business. We also offer a forecast for the balance of 2017 – although we freely admit that we did not expect Theresa May’s news of a snap election and certainly did not forecast it!
