Selling your yacht berth
It isn’t always easy to sell your yacht berth. This is because of the supply and demand of yacht berthing places. This doesn’t necessarily mean that there is a shortage of berths, but it does mean that there are several factors that can affect the market. At Direct Berth, we would love to take a look with you at the possibilities and benefits of your yacht berth. In addition, we can offer to be a reliable partner in this process as we are more than able to understand the risk and liability of selling berths. We find personal guidance extremely important with selling your berth as well as performance and trust.
First, the location of the marina is a big must to sell your berth. Depending on the hotspots of the season it can differ where the lucrative yacht slips are to be found. For example, the Mediterranean is a beloved area in the summer for yachting and sailing. This means those berths or slips are increasingly growing in costs. It also means that during that period there can be a shortage in berths in certain regions due to the popularity. As a buyer that is inconvenient, but as a seller, it can be super convenient. Knowing the environment of your berth is quite important since that will probably be one of the main reasons for a buyer to proceed with the purchase. Especially in the summer period, since people are interested in outdoor activities and other forms of entertainment. A town with a lot of leisure facilities is always beneficial for those spending a longer period in one place. Proper shopping areas are also very highly requested.
Features of yacht berth
Another quite essential factor to sell yacht berths is the special features it offers. As a customer decides to purchase a berth for their yacht, they compare the features that are included with alternative berths in different marinas. Some features are obviously more important than others. For example, safety and security are two prime features for most captains of yacht owners. Which makes a lot of sense because yachts can be extremely valuable. Not only in terms of money, but also in terms of sentiment.
Another important feature is accessibility. It is quite important to have a good connection between the marina and the nearest airport. Some people travel to their vacation destination by plane, where their yacht (and possible staff) will be waiting for them. So, good transport and access to an airport are quite crucial. Transport between the airport and the marina is sometimes offered to those with a yacht in that marina. Also, fuel delivery can be available at certain berths in marinas. Besides fuel being portable water is also important for superyachts.
