Buying a Yacht
"In our search for a boat your help was above and beyond what any one would have expected. Taking us to look at so many vessels, even ones that were not listed, gave us a great feel for the market and played a major role in helping us with our boat choice."
--- H & C Edley
There are lots of possible vessels to choose from just by looking at the local yacht brokers. When you widen your search to include Yachtworld.com the selection is enormous. To help you choose the best vessel you could just contact the listing broker directly. They will work hard on your behalf but, like a real estate agent, they are morally bound to represent the best interest of the selling party. As a buyer you should also have a broker representing you and negotiating on your behalf. Best of all, it doesn't cost you anything! Brokers cooperate and work together to do the best for their respective clients. If you want Vela to work for you let us contact the selling broker on your behalf regarding interesting vessels. Only by contacting Vela first can we act on your behalf.
Why would you want us to work for you? Here are some of the benefits:
On top of all this, if you share with us the details of what you want in a vessel we'll search our internal channels and help you find that special boat. Each week we review new listings for many clients and we would be happy to do the same for you as well. I hope that you'll consider working with Vela as you search for your next boat. We would welcome the opportunity to earn your business.
- We're boaters first, brokers second! Long before we were brokers we were boaters. We have personally owned both power and sail, spent the Summers coastal cruising, and have crossed oceans on our own vessels. We truly know boats inside and out!
- We can import great boats! The American yacht market is larger than ours and we may be able to find you a better boat at a lower price. We're very experienced at importing boats and will handle all of the paperwork, making it an easy and enjoyable process for you.
We're a small brokerage so we work harder! When you work with Vela you work one on one with us. We're committed to helping you find the ideal boat for your needs.
Your best interest is always our top priority! There is only one thing we want more than to find your next boat, and that is to make sure you enjoy the experience. We'll take great care of you, just ask any of our clients! Of course, we're members of the BC Yacht Brokers Association and live up to their ethical standards.
We'll negotiate hard to get you the best price! When we represent you we use our knowledge, our experience, and our worldwide database of sold boat pricing to get you the best deal possible. The seller has a broker representing their best interests so you should benefit from one as well.
