Yacht Brokerage

Are you considering to offer your yacht on the market for sale or charter? As an EMCI certified yacht broker & appraiser with more than 10 years of experience, I am happy to assist you with an innovative approach in yacht brokerage. I provide unparalleled (online) marketing and a flawless presentation of yachts. I know the market well and, as an experienced skipper/instructor, I know the pros and cons of many yachts from first-hand.
I am Dutch, living in Italy, so I am able to bridge the cultural diversity and language barriers between Northern and Southern Europe. I would be glad to send you a proposal with a bespoke yacht marketing plan for the sale of your yacht.

ONLINE MARKETING EXPERTISE

The internet is today’s sales marina, so unparalleled online marketing and presentation is essential for a successful sale. For more than 10 years I have built websites and provided online marketing for ambitious companies and I also enjoy photography and (drone) video production. This far-reaching knowledge and skills come in handy in my work as an innovative yacht broker.

NAUTICAL KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE

In addition to more than 10 years of experience in yacht brokerage, I have completed more than 33,000 nautical miles as a skipper, sailing instructor, regatta skipper and boat owner. I have always sailed in challenging coastal waters, on all kind of sailing and motor yachts, so I know better than anyone what the pros and cons are of different yachts. This allows me to give valuable advice to potential buyers.

BRIDGE BETWEEN NORTHERN AND SOUTHERN EUROPE

For more than 20 years I have been working as a sailing instructor. I have trained thousands of water sports enthusiasts on sailing and motor yachts. I have built up a large network of water sports enthusiasts. Now, I live in Italy not far from the Mediterranean Sea, the berth of most luxury sailing and motor yachts. Moreover, I speak various languages and I know better than anyone the enormous differences in culture, habits and doing business. This allows me to form a bridge between buyers and sellers in Northern and Southern Europe.
