Selling with Oyster Brokerage
With over 45 years’ experience as Oyster’s dedicated brokerage, our unparalleled knowledge of our fleet and the marketplace will prove valuable when selling your Oyster.
As the go-to broker for pre owned yachts, we sell most pre-owned Oysters each year. We have unparalleled experience and knowledge in the market to assist in finding a new home for your cherished Oyster.
First port of call for buyers If you are wondering who is best set up to sell my Oyster yacht, look no further. We are the natural first place buyers look for pre-owned Oysters, so you can be sure your yacht will be seen by people who count. With a database refined over 38 years, we probably already know the next owner of your yacht. We know most of our customers personally – they are either already members of the Oyster family or are keen to become part of it. Our team are all experienced Oyster specialists. They know the key features and benefits of your Oyster and can present her to best effect to buyers.
Inside information We have access to original Oyster documentation, build files, build yards, designers and project managers for Oysters built over the last 50 years. This means we can often access historic information and documentation that would not be widely available if you were selling a yacht through a third-party broker.
We have a highly optimised, tried and tested marketing format which harnesses a blend of marketing channels to deliver results.
With our expertise in amplification of brokerage listings, we create a bespoke marketing plan to harness our network and digital marketing capabilities, along with third party publications. To promote and share information on your yacht effectively with potential buyers, we produce beautiful, comprehensive sales specifications and well optimised yacht listing on our website to which we drive our multi-channel marketing promotions towards.
