Ten Tips- Selling Your Catamaran Fast
A yacht purchase is the second largest financial transaction in most yacht owner's lives. Because yacht transactions can be highly complicated due to tax, legal and government issues you absolutely need an expert on your side. Over the past 26 years Gary has proven himself as an able-navigator through these potential hazards.
I am committed to getting the highest price for your yacht. To get top dollar, you need maximum exposure. I will feature your yacht on my website LargeCatamaransForSale.com which generates over 6,500 targeted visitors per month. As an example, when someone does a Google search for a large catamaran, my site usually comes up in the top 3 search results. Search engine ranking is responsible for more yacht sales than any other marketing approach. In fact, it generates more sales than all other methods-combined including boat shows, print ads, "For Sale" signs and "word-of-mouth". So the other brokers who promise print ads, boat shows and other methods to get the yacht sold don't compare to the power of search engine ranking. A Catamaran Collection broker is obligated to get maximum exposure for each and every listing. Advertising to the public is a critical factor, but the fact is that it is a rare occurrence for a broker representing a yacht to provide the buyer. In most markets across the country, over 80% of vessel transactions are cooperative sales through other yacht brokers. And who is best equipped to reach those other brokers? Catamaran Collection! Through worldwide Multiple Listing Services and other cooperative marketing networks, open houses for other yacht brokers, exposure on international web sites and trade magazines, or personal contacts, your Catamaran Collection broker has the tools to maximize exposure to your yacht.

"I know this sounds unbelievable but Gary sold my yacht in one hour. And he netted me 11% over what I paid for it (after commissions). It's all because he coached me on the best time of year and location to buy and the best time of year and location to sell. His Insider Secrets report was invaluable to me." - Dale McHenry, Little Rock, AR (Leopard 40)
