specializes in finding the right boat for
an owner, as well as one that meets the chartering
needs of the SFY fleet. Here are five advantages
of letting Vic be your "Buyer's Broker":
no need for you to scour the country looking
at boats. Vic will locate, inspect and pre-qualify
yachts for you. He will only present yachts
to you which meet your budget and your specifications,
along with the SFY fleet standards. Finding
the right boat may take three weeks or three
months. Vic will spend whatever time is
necessary to find your "dream"
most brokers will sell you any yacht and
"cast you off" the dock after
the sale. At SFY, we have to live with your
yacht. Our mission is to find the best boat
possible for you because our name will be
nearly 20 years in the chartering business,
Vic can direct you to the type, size, make
or model of boat that will charter well.
Not every boat makes a good charter yacht.
Vic can give you revenue and expense projections
based on the particular boat that you select.
is not necessary to purchase a new boat
for charter. The SFY fleet has boats from
two to twenty years old! However, if choosing
an older boat, Vic will work with you to
define the potential costs of equipping,
repairing, or upgrading the yacht to make
it "charter ready". In some cases,
these expenses might even be financed into
the purchase price of the yacht.
you wish to finance your yacht, Vic will
assist you with contacting high quality
marine financing companies. Prior to beginning
your search for a boat, you will need pre-approved
financing and a deposit in our Escrow Account
equal to 10% of your boat-buying budget.
(For example, if you are looking in the
$100,000 range, a deposit of $10,000 is
required.) In order to make an offer on
a boat, this 10% deposit is required anyway.
Having your deposit in escrow makes you
"ready to go" when the right boat
comes along! Boat-buying shouldn't be a
nightmare. With proper planning, Vic can
help make your yacht ownership dream come
