Almost all brokers list boats with the understanding of a 10% commission. As brokers, we have a way of seeing if the boat is listed as an open listing or a central. If a boat has a central listing, even if the seller sells it to his brother, he owes commission. The buyer never pays commission. Read More

With 2,414 brokerage boats selling in September, the U.S. market was off by 7 percent in total boats sold compared to the same month in 2013. Although not as many boats sold, average selling prices improved. One of the reasons for increased average prices was that sales were higher in the pricier 46- to 55-foot range in which the average boat of this size sold for $279,000, some 11 percent more than a year earlier. Sale prices were also higher in the 36- to 45-foot range where sales increased 5 percent and the total price paid was up 9 percent, driving average prices up from $121,000 to $126,000. Read More
My Hydra-Sports 3500VX arrived safely in Belize. Your assistance in finding the right boat at the right price is really appreciated and your efficiency in accomplishing all that was agreed to compliments doing business with Export Yacht & Ship. The ' Lady Lure' runs like a dream and I will have many happy moments of fishing with her. Much appreciation to you and Export Yacht & Ship.

Export Yacht & Ship acted on my behalf to secure and export my Mastercraft 280sts to Australia. Mike acted very professionally throughout the transaction and looked after my interests as a priority. I would, and have already, recommend Export Yacht & Ship to anyone seeking an honest dependable service.
