Benefits of Listing Your Boat with Us
As one of the largest new sailboat dealers in the region, we receive a tremendous amount of traffic and customers interested in boats and frankly, a brand new boat is not in everyone’s budget. Boats on our dock get tremendous exposure as we are a ‘Destination Showcase Marina’ in the heart of Lake Union’s Sailboat Row. Among our primary competitors, we’ve also been here the longest!
One of the benefits of having your boat at our facility is not just that it’s easier to show, but that we get traffic for all kinds of boats. Everyone is busy these days and they all seem short on time. By making one trip to our Marina they can see several new and used boats on the same trip. (Sometimes it’s hard to get customers to take the time to even go as far away as Shilshole or Everett to see a nice brokerage boat!)
A huge benefit of our marina is that everyone walks past our office on the way to see the boats. When your boat for sale is in a faraway marina, we may show the one one time but when the clients come back for a second or third “look”, we get another opportunity to engage with them. And our gates and office are open six days a week and Sunday by appointment!
Often the boats we sell are boats we’ve sold before. We’ve been Beneteau dealers since 2003 (so of course we have brochures, factory specifications, parts access etc for all of these used Beneteaus. In addition to that, over the years we have also represented and sold a number of other big brands such as Hunter (dealer for a decade until they got in financial trouble) and Catalina Yachts (again dealer for over a decade in Bellingham and Portland before moving to Seattle). We also represented and sold several premium brands such as Caliber, Island Packet, Freedom, Sabre, Taswell, Valiant and the like. WE KNOW BOATS.
It’s probably fair to say we have one of the largest collections of “new boat brochures” for past models going back 30 years.
