TEN reasons you want to list your boat with Calibre Yacht Sales

If you are thinking about selling your boat, Calibre Yacht Sales can help. We have a unique combination of marketing tools that work. They work because we execute professionally, strategically and with discipline for all our listings. 

It is our objective to maximize the selling price of your boat and to sell it quickly. How do we achieve this? 

  1. Representation: We give your boat regional representation in 7 coastal BC locations: North Vancouver, Oak Bay Victoria, Nanaimo, Maple Bay Duncan, Campbell River, Vancouver and the Comox Valley. No other brokerage is as regionally strong as Calibre Yacht Sales.  
  2. Pricing: We conduct a price analysis based on historical sales and current listings of similar vessels. It is our duty to be candid and forthcoming about the value of your boat. We do not want to negotiate a lower price due to a misunderstanding between perceived and real market value. 
  3. Digital Marketing: We have a particularly strong online presence. Your boat will be seen on our website (over 19,000 unique visits each month) and on the top MLS Yacht Sales sites such as YachtWorld.com, Boats.com and Boatdealers.ca. 
  4. YouTube: Our YouTube channel has over 23,500 subscribers and more than 8 million views. There is no other BC brokerage even close to those numbers. This is particularly effective for high-value listings.  
  5. Social Media: We are active in promoting our listings on Social Media, including Facebook, Instagram and Marketplace. 
  6. Email Marketing: We have a very large client base that receives regular emails. We specifically target buyers with boats that meet the criteria they are shopping for. We also send emails to other brokerages letting them know that we have a new listing they might be interested in.
  7. Marketing Plan: We will develop a custom marketing plan for your boat. Based on current market conditions, advertising opportunities and the unique characteristics of your boat, we will adjust our strategy to ensure we are speaking to the right target group in a written voice and images that are effective. We are happy to share a sample plan with you. 
  8. Processes and resources: We follow a prescribed process involving legal paperwork, transferring of funds in secure holding accounts, surveys, mechanical inspections, sea trials, etc. to avoid costly errors and delays. 
  9. Professional: Calibre brokers are active in BCYBA and CPYB programs and have any required designations. 
  10. No sale, no pay: You pay us only when you have your money. We view our work for you as a partnership. We need each other to succeed, and we both seek success. It is a very simple idea: Your success is our success. 
  11. Bonus reason: WE LOVE BOATS!

We would love to talk with you about your boat and how we can help you sell it.
