The benefits of using an Independent Broker : peace of mind
In today’s competitive market, it takes of lot more than simply hanging a « For Sale » sign from the lifelines in order to sell a pre-owned yacht.
The decision to sell your boat is really much easier than completing the actual sale. An equally important decision is how to sell it--whether to hire a professional do it for you by using a Boat Builder's Dealer or an Independent Broker, or whether to try to handle the sale yourself.
That choice will also be influenced by the size and value of your boat. Small boats are rarely sold by brokers, since they produce too little income for the amount of time required to make the sale. Large boats often involve complex negotiations that are handled more smoothly by experienced yacht brokers.
As an independant brokerage company, Haas International is not aligned or tied to any particular boat brand. We represent all sellers and secure a profit only when the sale is successful. We have an excellent reputation for knowing the market and setting competitive prices that attract interest and attention from potential buyers. We are also known for building long-term positive relationships with our clients, who appreciate our professionalism, honesty, experience and hard work on their behalf. We also provide an exciting and informative Internet website, and excellent strategic marketing.
Haas International will manage the sale from beginning to end, making it comparatively easy and worry-free for you. Your satisfaction is our top priority!

Assessing your yacht’s market value : the right pricing
Haas International will help you establish a fair-market value for the yacht.
Every yacht has its unique value, but the most common assessment error is pricing the yacht too high, which limits your overall potential market—extending the length of time it takes for the sale, if it sells at all. Improper pricing means fewer qualified buyers will be attracted to your boat and it will likely sit on the market, piling up expenses without selling and most importantly will attract no attention.
There’s no doubt that when it’s time to sell your boat the best way to do it is quickly.
