"I sold my 48' custom Sportfishing boat listing in less than 2 weeks," said United Yacht broker Scott White. "Sales can happen a lot faster than people think, especially if the boat is in good shape and can pass its survey. We have tools here at United that help us get the word out fast." NY-to-FL broker Mordy Miltz echoes Scott's message, "The boat I sold the fastest was a 37' Intrepid that was my listing for literally 11 hours and we found a buyer. Combine a good listing with United's network and marketing reach and we can sell your boat very quickly."
Once a listing agreement is signed for a United broker to sell your boat or yacht, your vessel is loaded on to the proprietary United Yacht Broker Forum. With over 150 yacht brokers worldwide, this forum connects all of them in an organized way with lightning fast results. Every broker receives an email directly in their inbox every time a new post is made. This means every one of our brokers is being notified of your listing before it even gets photographed.
United Yacht Sales sells 80% of our listings in-house, many of these as a result of the United Yacht Broker Forum and its ability to connect our network.
(Seen below: A screenshot of the broker forum where yacht brokers all over the world post what new listings they have or what their clients want to buy.)
It's not just listings getting announced either on the United Yacht Broker Forum. Many of our brokers use this as a way to let other brokers on the team know what kind of boat their customer is looking to buy. United broker Brian Franc recently posted to see if anyone knew of a 90 to 102' motor yacht on the market, 2010 and newer in the $5 million range. With over 150 brokers on our team, there are often available boats or yachts that are not on the market yet or that a broker may have sold years ago. The United Yacht Broker Forum allows our team to get your needs out there and let our vast network go to work for you.

The United Yacht Broker Forum is a great tool for our brokers to get your yacht sold fast, but it's not the only one. Whether it's advertising in major print publications, executing a targeted Google campaign, or advertising on our extensive social media following, Untied brokers have a variety of ways to help promote your boat for sale. You can learn more about why United Yacht Sales is the best professional brokerage firm to list your yacht for sale by going here: Why Trust Falmouth Yacht Sales?
Once your boat or yacht has been photographed and the details collected, your broker will input your boat into the industry's two largest yacht brokerage MLS systems called Boatwizard and IYBA.Pro. These MLS systems allow every broker in the world access to your listing. It also makes sure that your boat is sent automatically to our website, Yachtworld.com, Boats.com, BoatTrader.com, and even other brokerage firm websites.
Then, as an official industry announcement about your boat, United sends a marketing email blast to 2,000+ industry brokers with the photos, price, and details of your vessel. Some brokerage firms hold back your boat from being advertised worldwide because they want to try and collect both sides of the commission. At United, we put our clients first and make sure that your yacht is well represented online as quickly as possible.
