Boat Sales Preparation Sydney Davis Marine Brokerage

How do I prepare my boat for sale in sydney?

Selling a boat can be tough and time-consuming. It takes great care, attention to detail, experience, expertise, and connections within this niche market to get the best deal possible. An experienced yacht broker will manage the whole process from beginning to end. Make certain that you are updated on the sale's progress, saving you precious time and energy.


The goal is to ensure that your boat gets maximum visibility to buyers, making it present correctly and sell efficiently. At Davis Marine Brokerage we will achieve this on your behalf.


To get the best price and sales timeframe for your boat, it's important to remember how it was when you purchased it and ensure it meets those standards once again. Here are some things to consider in getting your boat ready:


Professional Detail - A clean and tidy boat will attract buyers. While a boat that looks neglected will turn them away immediately. It's essential to have the interior and exterior of your boat cleaned and cared for properly. Professional detailers will have specialist products, materials, and know the correct processes to achieve the best results. Every $1,000 spent, could get you up to $10,000 added to the sale price.


Annual Servicing - When taking a vessel out for sea trials and surveys, you want it to be running perfectly and for all mechanical parts to be fully functional. Buyers would want to see that too. They are also likely to inspect the hull as well. Therefore, at Davis Marine Brokerage we'll take care of all that from engine servicing, anti-foul, and polishing to save you all the hassle of boat preparation.


Gather Service History Documents - When you first checked out the boat, you wanted to know all about the boat's history before buying it. The same thing goes for the next owner. So, gather all of the boat’s documentation and check that everything is complete and up-to-date, including current registration and insurance details. This will all help close the deal in the best timeframe and without unneccesary delays.



Pricing - Several factors are involved in setting the correct price including the age of the boat, its condition, engine hours, the yard that built it, and most particularly the market conditions. This is because the current state of the market drives boat value no matter how well you’ve maintained it. Any good broker worth their salt should be able to tell you what your boat is worth in the current market. Our team will inspect the boat for you and compare it to current market offerings to see where it sits correctly. We've got your back.

Working with us on selling your boat offers peace of mind throughout the process. We'll help you find potential buyers, negotiate the sale price, arrange inspections and surveys, and handle the marketing presentation. We'll also guide you through the necessary paperwork and ensure it’s all filled out correctly to avoid time-consuming mistakes that can cause delays in the sale. Nothing can or will be left to chance! Let us take care of everything and do what we do best, we sell your boat!
