Your Sales Journey with Parkstone Bay Yachts

Are you considering selling your yacht? While every vessel's sales journey is unique, it's helpful to familiarise yourself with the essential steps in the process.

Your sales journey with Parkstone Bay Yachts begins with a free appraisal and valuation of your vessel. We will discuss commission rates and, if required, offer preferential storage rates. Note: Lift charges may apply.

Once appointed as your broker, we will sign a Listing Agreement and begin the process of creating a compelling media portfolio for your yacht. At this stage, we require you to supply all Title Documents, Manuals, Keys etc. If required, we will arrange a valet service to ensure your vessel presents at its best.

We then draft a detailed listing for your approval. Once approved, we publish the listing and begin the process of arranging and conducting viewings with potential buyers to achieve the best possible offer.

All offers and feedback are presented to you, the seller. During this phase, it is important to ensure your vessel is ready for a sea-trail, with steps such as de-winterisation and battery charging taken care of. We will then co-ordinate the sea trail and survey as required.

Once an offer is agreed upon, both the seller and buyer sign a Sale & Purchase Agreement, with a 10% deposit obtained from the buyer. We then provide Sea Trial/ Survey Feedback, and further negotiations may be required.

Once all details are finalised, we facilitate the signing of the Bill of Sale and provide Bank Details for the final transaction. We obtain the full balance from the buyer and handle the handover of the vessel. The seller then receives the balance of the sale from us, your trusted broker at Parkstone Bay Yachts.
