Information for Sellers: Brokerage Sales
If you’re considering selling your boat, come talk to us at Sundance. Our sales staff has over 100 years of combined experience and will make the process as quick and easy for you as possible. Most importantly, we’ll also do everything possible to get you the most money for your boat. What do we do to accomplish these things? Read on.
Free Market Analysis and experienced staff evaluation
One of our experienced sales staff (average of 25+ years boat sales experience each) will sit down with you and help you determine what your boat will really sell for in today’s market, recommendations for decreasing sell time and increasing selling price. You don’t have to just count on their experience either: we have access to real-time sold boat reports detailing what equivalent vessels have sold for in a given time period. Our experience + real market data = your boat sold.
Exposure in Portland and Seattle, the Northwest’s biggest markets
We have prime locations in both Portland and Seattle, the Northwest’s two largest boating markets. By listing your boat with Sundance, your exposure is dramatically increased over listing in just one market. Not only do we get more walk-ins, but web views will be dramatically higher as well. We will capture the buyer who overlooks the other market and show them why they should make the drive to look at your boat as well.
Savvy Internet Marketing
The vast majority of used boat searching is now done online. We know this, and invest in online marketing. Your boat will be featured on our web site (which is heavily trafficked), Yachtworld, Boats.com, Boat Trader, and more. We also invest in Google marketing, search engine optimization, and our social media presence. We were even officially recognized by Google as being in the top 1% of businesses searched for in our area. Click here for more information on that.
Indoor Dry Storage in Portland is like a 365 day/year boat show
If your boat is less than 30 feet, storing it in our dry storage has serious advantages:
- Your boat will be kept in better condition for display in our heated building.
- When a buyer comes in to look at boats, yours will be conveniently available for them to view. Don’t make your buyer run around town to hunt down your boat—in many cases they won’t.
- No need to winterize during the winter!
- Get your boat serviced, detailed, and surveyed on site.
Serious facilities for displaying boats and attracting buyers
Not only do we have facilities in both Portland and Seattle, but also our facilities are first-rate and attract more potential buyers. Some brokers have small offices and listed boats scattered around local marinas. We don’t. We have prime locations in Portland and Seattle and the ability to show boats on site, for the convenience of the buyer.
Discounted dry storage and marina rates with listing
When you list your boat for sale with Sundance and store it with us too, not only are you putting your boat in an environment where it’s more likely to be seen and sold, but you get discounted moorage rates as well.
