Can I make changes to my advert?

Yes, you can edit your advert at any time. This is especially useful if you want to get your advert live right away and want to add some extra photos, videos or virtual tours later on.

How do I receive sales enquiries?

We deliver all your sales enquiries by email direct to your inbox, helping you manage your sale simply and efficiently. You can also view your enquiries in your account on TheYachtMarket just in case you have any problems with your email account.

In 2020, we generated almost 100,000 sales enquiries for our customers.

How long does my boat advert last for?

Adverts last for three months. If your boat sells within this time, you can deactivate your advert to stop receiving enquiries. If your boat has not sold at the end of the three months, you can renew your advert.

Can I make enhancements to my boat advert?

Yes, we have several options to make your boat advert stand out.

How many photos can I add?

You can add as many photos as you want – there’s no limit, and we don’t charge extra for more photos.

Can I add videos and 360° virtual tours to my advert?

Yes, you can also add videos and 360° virtual tours, again without any limitations on the quantities.

Do I have to conduct viewings myself?

Yes, when selling a boat privately, you will need to arrange and conduct viewings with buyers. In most cases, buyers will want to view the boat before committing to buying it. If you’re not comfortable doing this, using a broker might be a better option, and you can find a broker in our Broker Directory.

Will I be charged a commission on my boat sale?

No, we don’t charge commission on your sale. You just pay a flat fee for an advert that lasts for three months. Selling your boat privately can save you a lot of money on brokerage fees.

Can I sell boats as a broker or dealer?

Yes, we have plans tailored for boat sales professionals. Read more here.

How do I pay?

Once you’ve created your boat advert and chosen your enhancements, you’ll be directed to our payment page, where you can pay securely online by credit card or debit card.
