Valuable Builder Sales Experience
The most valuable benefits to aligning with an Outer Reef Yachts sales representative when listing your yacht are the following:
- Distinct Yacht Build Knowledge: Each Outer Reef sales representative has invaluable knowledge beyond that of a regular yacht broker, as Outer Reef sales representatives are groomed to understand the overall yacht build and sales process, from the initial design to after sales service. This expertise evolves from years of hands-on project and client management at the ship yard to the yacht delivery, and beyond. How does this help you sell your yacht? The title of Yacht Builder is earned in the trenches, thereby providing you with the distinct advantage of representation by a professional with a thorough understanding of "how we got here". This scope will help to preserve your resale value throughout the sales process, and negotiations from a place of knowledge and expertise.
- Full Time Sales Efforts: All Outer Reef Yachts sales representatives are full time yacht sales professionals completely focused on selling yachts each and every day, rather than working the brokerage side of the yacht business as a part time job or hobby.
- Fast Tracking Through Survey and Client Qualification: Outer Reef Yachts sales professionals are exceptionally knowledgeable due to their yacht building experience, and can provide expert guidance, fast-tracking you through all facets of the sales process, from the initial survey, to sale preparation, uncovering qualified buyers and successfully closing the deal.
- Long Term Relationship Building: Rather than concentrating on a quick transaction or one-time sale for personal gain, Outer Reef Yachts sales representatives strive to build long term relationships with clients around the globe. Outer Reef sales representatives hope to work with clients through years and years of memorable yachting experiences. Trust on both sides, which is built over time, is the key to success.
- Honest Listing Evaluation: A deceptive practice in the yachting industry is to over-inflate the value of the yacht when going to market, in order to obtain a customer's listing. This empty promise made by a yacht broker to their client will unnecessarily delay the sale of the yacht. Outer Reef Yachts sales representatives are honest in their pricing consultation from the initial conversations, setting accurate and fair expectations with the yacht seller.
- Broad Promotion of Yacht Through Co-Brokerage Opportunities: Outer Reef sales representatives respect the process of working with other brokers in the sale of your yacht. Our marketing team ensures the promotion of your listing to a large database of outside yacht brokers by designating your yacht as Available For Co-Brokerage on multiple listing advertising sites such as Yachtworld, Yatco, Yacht Market, etc. Outer Reef Yachts is a long term member of several Brokerage Associations that foster relationships and yacht promotions among outside brokers. While maintaining control of the sales cycle, Outer Reef representatives will work effectively with a strong network of global yacht brokers to sell your yacht as quickly as possible.
- Outer Reef Yachts Difference: Outer Reef Yachts is a boutique yacht builder and brokerage sales company offering family-oriented, personalized services around the globe. Rest assured knowing the company's owner, Jeff Druek and the Outer Team are fully accessible 24/7 and take pride in earning the best customer service reputation in the industry. When you are a part of the Outer Reef Family, you have a long-term partner in the business who will always guide you through future yacht planning, purchase, sale and build transactions, no matter where your next yachting chapter takes you.
