In a word…TEAMWORK.
Once your listings are published, I start receiving calls & emails from boat buyers wanting more information.
This begins the conversation with them and is how, at the same time, I’m able to start qualifying them.
At this point, they’ll ask questions about the boat, they haven’t seen on your published listing…or haven’t read. 😉
Then, when a qualified buyer is ready to go see your boat, I’ll let you know…and you’ll tell me when to schedule their viewing.
*Note – I ALWAYS send them an Offer Form and encourage them to submit an offer on your boat (which can be subject to inspection, survey etc.) ahead of time.
I have millions worth of Brokerage Listings all across America right now and do this process almost every day.
Keep in mind…I work for you.
The choice will always be yours on when (and for how much) we sell your boat.
Being proactive is something I try to focus on, daily.
If someone isn’t a ‘cash buyer’ for your boat, I put them in touch with a professional marine finance lender and encourage them to get pre-approved before even mentioning this buyer to you, (in most cases).
That being said, I’ve sold millions worth of yachts and boats since last Spring and have only had deals that involved financing.
Almost everyone who buys boats from me…has been a ‘cash buyer.
If you’ve read my book, you’ll know that I became captain of a multi-million dollar yacht while still in my 20’s. This was almost 20 years ago.
I’ve been around luxury yachts & boats most of my adult life and remember, I speak with HUNDREDS of buyers every single day.
After all these years, have a knack for this sort of thing, now.
99% of my buyers are cash buyers.
After spending many years coordinating the logistics of sailing very expensive yachts in & out of foreign countries, navigating the sale of your boat is something I enjoy handling with the utmost professionalism and efficiency.
I look forward to working with you soon.
"I own a lot of boats. I bought a big Sea Ray from Kevin last year and he's always there when I need him. I will continue to work with Kevin in the future."
"Kevin went above and beyond for me when I bought my sportfishing boat. I trust him for advice all the time."
"Kevin knows things many yacht brokers don't know...and I used to be a yacht broker."
"Kevin St. Clair has sold three boats for me. He makes it easy."
Kevin is not only very experienced, but he's also very transparent...which is very rare in this industry. You'd be wise to work with him.
