Yacht fitting

Most people try on shoes or jackets for size before they buy them. That does not happen very often when buying a boat. Especially for people who are unsure of their requirements, I organize a session of “boat fitting”. Together we inspect all the models relevant to your wishes and needs to give you a sense of which boat ‘fits’ you best. The cost is € 345,00 (excluding travel costs*) and includes a comprehensive survey of the boats we have inspected and their advantages and disadvantages. Trying on boats is also ideal for people who would like to confirm the choice they have already made.

Yacht broker

In today’s second hand boat market the role of a professional certified yacht broker is becoming increasingly important. The growing number of older boats and the relatively limited production of new boats since 2008 make it increasingly difficult to find a good yacht in that market. For the purchase of a yacht it has become increasingly significant to review the correct description and documentation of the boats in question. How do you know whether the available information on a vessel is exhaustive? Is there CE-documentation and a CE-conformity declaration? Has VAT been paid demonstrably? Is the yacht in need of a CVO? I will gladly consult you in all the steps necessary to purchasing a boat.

Dutch yacht brokers network

As well as the above-mentioned expertise and experience I have access to an international network of yacht brokers, allowing me to gather information in the Netherlands as well as abroad, which I can assess and evaluate. As an international yacht broker I am fluent in English and German.

*Travel costs set at € 1.00 per kilometre
