We work hand-in-hand with our clients to guide and advise on every single aspect of the purchase. Ultimately, our goal is to ensure that the process is smooth and trouble-free.

STEP ONE: FINDING THE RIGHT YACHT

We begin by working with you to determine exactly what type of yacht you’re interested in. The first and most important thing is to determine all of your unique requirements, to help us find the perfect match:

  • Are you interested in power or sail?
  • Where do you plan to berth?
  • What interior and exterior styling do you prefer?
  • What length would you prefer?
  • Where do you plan to cruise?
  • How many guests do you need to accommodate?
  • What is your preferred cabin layout?
  • What range do you need?
  • How many crew will you have on board?
  • What tenders and toys would you like?
  • Do you intend to offer the yacht for charter
  • What is your budget?


STEP TWO: NARROWING THE SELECTION

Constant interaction with all levels of the industry ensures we have the most up to date information on all yachts available for purchase. We’ve also developed a unique database which enables us to keep a detailed archive of all of the large yachts in the world. We can cherry-pick owners to approach, even if their yacht is not necessarily on the open market.

STEP THREE: HANDLING THE OFFER & PURCHASE

Once we’ve found the vessel that fits your needs and a successful agreement has been reached, we assist in arranging sea trials and surveys. We handle the myriad aspects of the negotiation phase and closing process of the project. Our sales brokers work closely with our yacht management, legal and construction teams, allowing them to call on the top technical and legal experts in the industry throughout the survey and purchase process.

STEP FOUR: AFTER THE PURCHASE

Fraser Yachts will continue to add value to the process, remaining by your side long after the ink on the contract has dried. We’re focused on providing yacht owners with services that simplify the details associated with yacht ownership, whether that be yacht management, charter marketing or crew placement.
