Location: your vessel must be easy and available to view as far as possible. Boats in locked boatyards, on private grounds and on remote moorings can be challenging and frustrating to show.
Price must be realistic: consider yea
r of boat, inventory, condition and upgrades.
Condition: to attract buyers your yacht must look good, clean. Polish & valet throughout.
Remove all non-included items so the client can easily picture himself on board.
Clean and polish the hull and coachroof, remember inside hatch & locker mouldings.
Pump out and clean the bilges, and remove dust from the lifting board seatings.
Galley should be gleaming, empty and clean out the refrigerator/icebox – leave open to air.
Sprayhood, sail cover, dodgers etc should be thoroughly cleaned and stitched if required.
Flush out the heads and shower trays, rather a slight smell of cleaner than the alternative.
If any equipment is faulty then have it repaired or let me know so I can advise prospective purchasers.
Engine should be left serviced or winterised and cleaned as well as possible. Let me know if there are any starting methods I should know about. If you don't want me to run the engine then let me know.
Leave the batteries on charge so lights and equipment can be shown operating.
