Should you be interested in selling your boat and find you are too busy to deal with on-going marketing and handling initial enquiries, then over the years we have found an excellent way to sell vessels by marketing them on a weekly basis on our very own large FB “boats for sale group” https://www.facebook.com/groups/1597526780553819 to ensure excellent exposure as most boats for sale groups only allow one advert which disappears down the thread whereas our adverts come up again once/week. We also market our boats on marketplace, on our own website, on sailboatlistings.com and other websites to ensure full exposure.
We handle the initial enquiries and after discussion, should the potential buyers still be interested, we pass them onto you as we feel that any deal is best handled by the seller and the buyer and not by a third party such as a broker who sometimes does not know the boat that well or concentrates more on higher priced boats for more commission and can end up loosing the sale.
Should you be able to strike a deal then you can find examples of purchase and sales agreements on the internet from the Yacht Brokers Association Of America, BoatU.S. etc.
For our weekly marketing and referral service we charge:
* 2.5 percent for boats USD50,000 >, and; * 5 percent for boats USD50,000 < which is only payable once you receive payment.
If your boat is in Luperon, DR we can also show her at USD60 including pick up and return to the dinghy dock plus we can also arrange same in Grenada.
We can also assist your buyer with info on transport, accommodation, surveyors etc in Luperon and Grenada at no cost.
BUYERS: PRE-CHECKS ON BOATS YOU MAY BE INTERESTED IN BUYING IN LUPERON OR GRENADA: Please note, we are not accredited in any way for Survey Insurance purposes so this is purely a basic check with feedback and lots of pictures to see if the boat is worth following up on to save you time and money flying in to view it for the first time! If you are interested in a boat for sale in Luperon or Grenada then we can provide you with a report on how we viewed the boat overall together with approximately 50 photo's USD30/hour in Luperon, DR and the same service can be arranged in Grenada (it usually takes 4 hours including travel-time, viewing, typing up the report and sending the email). After having viewed our report/pictures and you decide to fly into Luperon or Grenada, we will be only too happy to assist you with contact details regarding haul-out facilities, accommodation, land taxi services, etc. and If you get to the stage where you want to look at buying the boat and require a "pre-purchase survey/appraisal on the condition and valuation of it for insurance purposes", then we recommend that you find out from the insurance company you are thinking of using which "Association of Accredited Marine Surveyors" they want you to use, which are usually: 1. The Association of Certified Marine Surveyors (ACMS) http://www.acms-usa.com/ 2. The Society of Accredited Marine Surveyors (SAMS) https://www.marinesurvey.org/other-countries/ 3. The National Association of Marine Surveyors (NAMS)https://www.namsglobal.org/ 4. US Surveyors Association www.navsurvey.com/ and within these sites you will find a lot of Certified/Accredited Marine Surveyors to chose from and we can also put you in contact with locally Certified Surveyors who can undertake the work for you. In Dominican Republic we have come across the below two certified surveyors: 1. https://www.facebook.com/Seamonkey-Marine-Surveys-138803099519040/ - he advised me he has does many surveys over the years and has a Navtech qualification for insurance company requirements. 2. http://www.schad.do/ where it seems they also have a certified Navtech surveyor on their team.
