You will see that you have the option of entering into a Central Listing arrangement with Berthon. This is our preferred route. Central Listings receive priority treatment as we control all aspects of the marketing. We are delighted to work on an Open Listing arrangement but by the nature of the contract we cannot exercise the same level of control over the marketing, or guarantee the same level of services that a central listing provides.
At Berthon, our aim is to find a purchaser for your yacht promptly at market value. We work for you, using our unrivalled experience within the brokerage market.
Call Berthon on 01590 679222 to discuss the purchase or sale of your yacht.
