Let Us Assist You at No Charge!
Whether buying within the U.S. or exporting to another country, purchasing a yacht is a complicated process made easy for YOU by Export Yacht & Ship. You don't even have to be present during any phase of the purchase - we can handle everything for you.
One of the first and most important services we offer our clients is to listen to their needs, requirements, and desires in the yacht they wish to purchase. We'll ask the right questions and assist you in narrowing your choices to the perfect yacht for YOU, the buyer. We are committed to our clients and offer excellent customer service.
You can search our online database of thousands of yachts that are for sale worldwide at any given moment. Choosing those that appeal to you will show us exactly the type of yacht you would like.
Our staff will contact sellers with yachts similar to those you like. We ensure all possible yachts that would interest you are identified, particulars of the vessel are scrutinized, and only the best deals are presented to you. We pride ourselves on assisting buyers with making the best choices during their search for the perfect yacht - all without any pressure to buy.
Negotiation Par Excellence!
One of the advantages Export Yachts has over our competition is our highly qualified staff. Using our expertise and knowledge of yachts and the purchase process, we help you negotiate the purchase of your yacht. We analyze the yacht against your needs, specifications, desires, as well as the seller's asking price against market values. We help you make the best offer, as well as negotiate directly with the seller on counter offers and acceptance issues. Each seller has a unique disposition. Our experience and reputation are the keys to successful negotiations.
Document Creation - Protecting Your Interests
We will draw up all legal documents for you - the offer contract and acceptance document, ensuring the language equally protects both the buyer and seller. For instance, we ensure the acceptance document does not have any discrepancies that could harm the buyer, since the seller is not obligated to fix or even point out such discrepancies.
Escrow - Convenient & Safe!
We provide you an escrow account with Bank of America for your deposit. This eliminates the need to give a deposit check to an unknown seller. By holding the deposit in escrow until the acceptance document is signed by both parties, you can make an offer on several yachts simultaneously without writing a deposit check for each offer. You will purchase the right yacht easier and faster, while keeping your deposit safe!
Research & Inspections - Get What You Expect
We will provide you with a choice of marine surveyors to ensure that the yacht is in the shape expected. We will oversee a thorough engine and hull survey as well as a sea trial, putting the yacht through its paces on the open water. We advise you about the resulting reports; how they affect you, the buyer; and options for you to consider.
Paperwork - Assured Accuracy
We work with experts that handle all the paperwork for your yacht purchase, transferring ownership to you. These services include but are not limited to transfer of registration, importation/exportation documents for the U.S., and title transfer. Additionally, our experts do a comprehensive title search of the yacht, looking for hidden liens against the vessel by following its history, rather than the simply search that most brokers complete. We can handle all financial transactions for you - whether you simply write a check, purchase under a complex business guarantee, or set up a blind corporation in a tax-haven country and purchase the boat in the corporation's name.
After-Purchase Assistance - Our Services Don't Stop at Purchase
Export Yacht Sales can assist you after the purchase with a variety of requests you may have concerning your new yacht. For example, it is much cheaper to refit a yacht in the U.S. than in another country. Our contacts with shipyards, mechanics, electronics installers, and canvas shops enable us to assist you with options, such as a complete re-power, electronic upgrades, shipyard work, and transportation. We also help you locate suitable dock space, while waiting for your yacht to ship, or if you are keeping your yacht in the U.S. We make sure that your yacht leaves the United States, as you expect, and provide digital pictures before your yacht ships.
International Service - We Ship Anywhere in the World
Though many yacht brokers are not equipped to handle international buyers, Export Yacht Sales staff is experienced in all types of purchases. We complete all of the paperwork, pack your yacht appropriately, winterize it (if necessary), and deliver it, making the entire process easy and convenient for you.
Shrink wrapping, custom cradles, containers, roll on-roll off, flat racks, and cargo insurance are available for all destinations. For delivery within the continental U.S., we can arrange shipping by U.S. truck from origin. For all other deliveries, we arrange for direct delivery to any major port in the U.S., complete all of the export documentation, delete the U.S. Coast Guard documentation where appropriate, complete all of the destination custom documentation, and assist with all import requirements at the destination.
No simple checklist of things to avoid in a yacht purchase exists.
Using Export Yacht & Ship not only makes sense, but it can
save you money!
Mike Brill founded Export Yacht Sales and is the driving force behind it. Overseeing all of our highly experienced staff, Brill brings his vast experience in the boating industry to bear on each and every sales transaction, ensuring the buyers' needs are met and their expectations are exceeded.
Born in the coastal city of Miami, Florida, Brill was a natural on the water. He began learning to run and maintain his first vessel, a 13-foot Boston Whaler, at the age of only seven. By the time he graduated high school, Brill knew his life career would be on the water and enrolled in the New York Merchant Marine Academy (Fort Schuyler), where he graduated with an Unlimited Third Mate's license.
He experienced the sea as a mate on various ships, while spending his summers teaching at both his alma mater and at the Texas Merchant Marine Academy. He achieved the position of Captain of an 800-passenger cruise ship at the unprecedented age of only 25. By age 27, Brill obtained the highest license in the world - the U.S. Coast Guard's Master of Steam and Motor Vessels of ANY Gross Tons upon Oceans.
After a few more years as a Captain in the Merchant Marine and having achieved the goals he set for himself, Brill decided he wanted to work more with a variety of vessels and to teach on a one-to-one level. He joined the brokerage firm of South Florida Yachts (SFY).
During his time at SFY, Brill learned all the ins and outs of the yacht selling and purchasing process - from the first listing of a yacht to the completed delivery. He continued to pilot many different craft by assisting the firm in their yacht delivery to buyers, to and from boat shows, as well as assisting with sea trials and much more.
While at SFY, Brill began to see an emerging buying trend in the yacht brokerage business. While "in-country" sales were beginning to decline, international clients wanted to capitalize on the strong international dollar. Emails and telephone calls from international buyers were on the increase, but many yacht brokerage firms were not designed to handle the complicated and intricate needs of these buyers. Nor were they able to resolve the international buyers' issue with sending a deposit before negotiating a "done deal".
Thus, Export Yacht Sales was born from the plight of the international buyers and designed specifically to assist them in the yacht purchasing process from start to finish and beyond, making the entire process easy and convenient! In 2014, Export Yacht Sales changed its name to Export Yacht & Ship. The name change is due to an increased demand for us to handle the sales of commercial vessels and larger yachts.
74' Huckins Cockpit Motor Yacht
Drastic Price Reduction!! Price is firm!!
This boat was originally commisioned by a avid sportsman that had previously owned three other Huckins. It was refurbished replacing interior bulkheads with Airex Construction like the rest of the hull making her better than when originally built.
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST UNIQUE AND PRETTIEST BOATS ON THE WATER. IT IS WORTH A TRIP TO THE BAHAMAS TO SEE HER. WE HAVE A 6 SEAT PLANE. YOU BUY THE GAS AND WE WILL FLY FROM SOUTH FLORIDA!
A family friendly yacht that fishes with the best pure sport fish, but one that is also a head-turner in any port, with a fresh Alwgrip hull in Herreshoff cream, and four beautiful staterooms.
The famous Huckins Quadraconic hull is both sea-kindly without the "pounding", and offers excellent yet fuel efficient speed and long range cruising.
Simply stunning! Owner is interested in moving down in size and will consider a trade.
