The demand for yachts has never been so high

If 2020 saw a seismic shift in demand worldwide for the ultimate safe escape to the sea on board a yacht, 2021 is seeing that demand grow even stronger, and faster than ever.

Worldwide yacht sales (+24M/79’) have more than doubled in the year to date (taking into account sales until mid June) and outperformed the same period last year by 142%. Fraser is experiencing our best year of the last 13 for the number of yachts sold and the total last asking price, as well as average LOA (Source: Fraser Central Intelligence Department).

Why the Market Boom?

  • During and after the pandemic, the tangible benefits of yachting are being discovered and enjoyed by more of us than ever – in many cases for the first time, as evidenced by the increase in the entry-level 24-40M (80’-130’) sector which saw a 160% increase on 2020
  • Many who have been considering buying for years are finally deciding that now is the moment and playing their "why not " card. This is far from unique to the superyacht sector: in the recreational pleasure craft market, the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) is seeing US boat sales across all size ranges reach a 13-year high
  • More people realised that spending time on a yacht, with only those guests you choose and a crew who work under strict sanitary protocols, offers a controlled environment that today is the best way to enjoy true relaxation
  • A yacht can be kept locally or in a port that is easy to reach from home even during times of restricted travel, and unlike a private island or villa, on a yacht you can wake with a different view every day, explore freely and go where you want
  • For home working and extended periods of living at sea, more buyers than ever are realising that yachts offer all the comforts, facilities and technology of a luxury home, and often even more
 
 
 

Marketing that gets your yacht seen - and wanted

Whether you are considering selling your yacht or placing it on the charter market, the biggest question you probably have on your mind right now is: what do I need to do to secure a sale at the price I know my yacht deserves?

The answer? By identifying a brokerage house that not only has a proven track record in promoting yachts like yours, but also offers the support of a marketing team who understands exactly how to market them.

Find out more about how the Fraser in-house Marketing Team, the only one in the world to include two Yacht Marketing Strategists, gets your yacht not just known, but wanted, via the buttons below.
 
Concerned that selling in today's market means you might be left without a yacht?
You might be asking yourself: if I sell today, in a market where less quality product is available, how can I continue to enjoy yachting?

There are two excellent options to consider:
  • Build a new yacht specified to your every need, and charter from one of 2,000+ available in the meantime.
  • Buy a pre-owned yacht and refit it into the yacht of your dreams.

When I was first buying a boat, we...met various brokerages, and then I met Fraser Broker Jan-Jaap Minnema. He treated us very well immediately, took us round the boats and over the next few weeks and months took us around more, and we loved his professionalism and the way he did things.
