• We have the expertise and tools to sell your boat quickly

Here's How it Works...
• After the initial contact with the seller, the listing broker will inspect the vessel and research like vessels on the market and recently sold like vessels and get a feel for the marketability of the vessel.

• Once the vessel owner decides to list his boat with HarborView Yacht Sales, a written agreement is signed outlining the terms of the agreement.

• Once the terms of agreement is signed, the listing broker returns to the boat and generates photos and an inventory of equipment, he will also put together a listing to be approved for accuracy by the owner and make suggestions to improve the look and marketability of your boat.

• The listing broker will advertise and promote all listings by placing vessel information, including photos on top rated multiple listing services and websites such as Yachtworld & Boatrader. Monthly display ads & classified ads are inserted in Midwest regional magazines such as Lakeland Boating & Great Lakes Scuttlebutt. Only brokers can list boats on a multi-listing site which server much like the multiple listing services for real estate agents.

• The listing broker is available seven days a week to show boats to prospective buyers.

• The listing broker will coordinate with the buyer, haul outs for surveys and transportation if necessary.

• Listing brokers can help you navigate some of the more confusing aspects of selling such as corporate ownership, loan payoffs, bills of sale, and other documents needed for transferring ownership.

• Listing brokers can also help a buyer obtain financing and assist with changing the USCG documentation.

  • The first thing I noticed about Bill was that he was not a high pressure saleman with a silky smooth FM radio sales pitch. He simply asked me what I was looking for, why I wanted the type of sailboat I did and what I had sailed before. In talking further to Bill his deep background in all types of boats became apparent. – Bob Tolpa
  • I think that you went above and beyond what I would expect from a yacht broker or sales person especially helping me to get my boat down my new homeport. I found you very prompt and thorough with any questions I had regarding my new boat. – Jim Wasson
  • I had full confidence in boat broker Bill Allgaier – Within a a day or two he visited my boat at the marina where it was docked and took multiple photos of the boat. Less than a week later he had a buyer and secured a down payment the same day. The boat sold for the full asking price.. – Jack Klang
