SELLING YOUR DRASCOMBE
There will come a time when you wish to dispose of your Drascombe. It may be that you want to trade-up as you wish to get more from your Drascombe-time or, sadly, for whatever reason, you wish or need to depart the hallowed band of owners. At that time, we can help you.
The simple way to sell it is to place it on brokerage with us.
Full brokerage is available from our yard. Most brokers will quote you a % commission and simply offer your boat for sale in the condition you present it to them in. Because a very strong element of our business is refurbishment, we like to approach selling your boat in a different way that will make it attractive to a wider range of potential buyers.
We will market your boat for sale either as it stands or fully refurbished as a new boat with experience or any stage in between that suits the buyer. The selling price will be agreed with the buyer accordingly. We also give a warranty with our fully refurbished boats; an added attraction to the buyer. Thus you will appreciate that quoting a % fee is inappropriate. Our way is to pre-agree with you a bottom line target price that you will receive for your boat. If required, we will also collect your boat from you. Further information and specimen agreements can be provided on request. We do receive a large number of enquiries from people who wish to deal with a Company to do a one-stop buying trip and, as a result, we often achieve quick turnarounds at premium prices.
You have no commitment until we have taken a deposit on your boat & can withdraw at any time without liability except for the collection charge, if incurred.
If you are willing to share the workload, we can offer you a Remote Brokerage service.
We will advise you on how best to prepare your boat and set a price, then market it for you & introduce potential purchasers leaving you to display the boat to them. It is also for you to negotiate a sale. However, some people find this aspect of selling difficult & we would be happy to handle this for you if you wish.
Our fee for remote brokerage is 7% of the agreed selling price plus VAT. Payment only becomes due when a sale is successfully concluded.
By past performance & current advertising in the primary trade press, we are recognised as a prime forum for trading Drascombes and a large number of those people seeking Drascombes will contact us. You can therefore be confident that your boat is being properly presented & marketed to potential buyers and is not just a runt in someones litter of expensive offerings.
