A visually appealing yacht that utilizes staging and decor and brokerages who offer further incentives to buyers will also increase the rate at which your yacht will be sold.

The resale value of a yacht refers to the estimated price a yacht can command on the secondary market when the owner decides to sell it. It is influenced by various factors such as the yacht’s age, brand, condition, size, features, market demand, and economic conditions.

Our team conduct extensive market research to assess the current state of the yacht market, considering recent sales and pricing trends for similar vessels. They then gather information about the yacht, including its make, model, year, size, equipment, amenities, and overall condition. The yacht’s history, maintenance records, usage (private or charter), and any notable upgrades or repairs are also carefully examined.

The reputation and perceived quality of the yacht’s manufacturer or brand are factored in, as well as its geographic location and market-specific demand. Comparable sales data is used to benchmark the yacht’s value, and any unique features, customizations, or recent upgrades are considered.

Ultimately, the broker’s experience and expertise in valuing yachts play a crucial role in arriving at a fair market value, which serves as the basis for setting an asking price that balances the seller’s expectations with the current market conditions, with the goal of attracting potential buyers and facilitating a successful sale.

Yachts typically depreciate in value over time. Like most luxury assets, they experience wear and tear, and their value diminishes as they age. However, the depreciation rate can vary depending on the yacht’s age, maintenance, brand, and market conditions. Regular maintenance, upgrades, and features that enhance a yacht’s appeal can slow down depreciation, and of course, buying a used yacht will produce less of a depreciation hit.

Yachts, as a general rule, do not typically go up in value. However, the depreciation rate can vary depending on the yacht’s age, condition, brand, and market demand. Well-maintained, high-end yachts with unique features may retain their value better than others. Since the pandemic, some pedigree yachts have sold for more than the original price because it means that interested parties don’t have to deal with a waiting period.
