Your Island Spirit Broker has access to the historical sales data via our commercial partnership with YachtWorld. With this, we have access to real-world data and actual selling prices to provide a starting point.

Island Spirit Brokerage listing agreement

The Listing Agreement defines the obligations of the Owner and the Broker. This is not an exclusive agreement; the Owner is free to list the yacht with competitive Brokers; however, this can confuse the market and make it more challenging to ensure accurate representation. You can review and download the Listing Agreement here.


Verifying Ownership

Clearly to be able to present your yacht to the market for sale the Island Spirit Yacht Broker needs to verify that you are, or can represent the Owner of the boat and that the relevant documentation required to transact the sale of the yacht are valid, and are at hand. The Primary method for verifying ownership is to present the Yachts Registration book.

Yacht inspection & Photography

We cannot over-stress the importance of this step in the listing process, and we highly recommend that you are present for the yacht inspection. At the end of this exercise, we need to have completed the inventory list and have a good stock of quality photos and video footage of the yacht.

During this procedure, the Broker will also be able to advise you on any actions that you could take that may improve the sales potential of the yacht.
