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). Our American brokers hold Florida Yacht Broker Licenses and are members of YBAA, Sail Newport, US Sailing, New York Yacht Club, Jamestown Yacht Club and Rhode Island Marine Trades 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.
