Services for Buyers
We put buyers in the captain's seat. In our industry, it's no longer simply “selling a boat." In fact, at POP Yachts that's exactly what we don't want to do. Rather, POP Yachts wants to enhance your buying experience, acting on your behalf as your international representative. No matter where you're located, we will search our vast network for the right vessel, and obtain the best deal every time.
POP Yachts is paid a commission by the seller, costing you, the buyer, absolutely nothing. Once we have located vessels for you to review, we will offer our unbiased opinion, positive or negative.
If you locate a vessel and want POP Yachts to negotiate the purchase on your behalf, we will advise you in that instance, too. If it is the right boat for you and the price is fair, our advice is to move quickly towards the purchase. Even in today's economy, vessels are selling. There are some great deals out there, but they come fast and go fast! If you are serious about purchasing, be prepared to move quickly so you don't miss the deal of a lifetime.
POP Yachts will coordinate all aspects of the sale, including title checks, trial run, surveyors, secure financial escrow transfers and most other paperwork.
The staff at POP Yachts will do everything we can to earn your trust, form a relationship and present a successful formula for your purchasing experience. The final result will reflect a personal, professional, unique service and buying experience.

We look forward to making your buying experience a pleasure.
We want to see you again.
Services for Sellers
At POP Yachts International, what we offer to sellers is very straightforward. Simply put: We market your boat around the world. Because we are Paid On Performance, we believe that if we bring a buyer to you, we deserve to be paid. If we don't, why should we earn anything? Here's how we do it:
Browse our current listings and notice the amount of information and photographs we provide. On average, we display 100+ photos of each boat along with dozens of detailed specs. One of our sales executives will visit your boat (depending on location) to take photos, gather information and write up an original, customized listing.
We have the industry's most sophisticated software to help find you that buyer. We enter your boat into the POP system and the advertisement automatically feeds across the world to more than 160 boating and yachting sites. It should come as no surprise that we export 70% of what we sell outside the U.S. We have the largest Internet marketing reach of any brokerage business in the world, and we advertise in very specific markets with local boat marketing websites. We are particularly strong in Europe, the Middle East, Canada and Australia.
Our expert Internet consultants manage your listing and work every one of the Internet inquires that come in for your boat. And as a seller, you will have access to live data showing exactly who is viewing your boat across the globe. You will get live updates by logging into your client account, including complete history and data on your listing from the date we started, the date it was photographed and the full history of Internet activity, price reductions and every piece of the secret puzzle we offer. Why don't others brokers show you this? It's simple: They don't have it! Our listing staff is happy to give you a preview. To learn more, click on this link and drop us a line.
You can select a fixed percentage payable to POP Yachts only when we bring you a buyer, or tell us what you need to net from the deal and we will find a buyer and make the deal work for all parties. You can still sell the boat yourself, and cancel the agreement any time with only 5 days notice (to allow us to pull advertising).
Ease & Convenience
You don't have to print your contract to review it. You can accept it from your smartphone with one simple click, and it stores in your records for your personal access only.
Boat selling is all about the Internet today. The maximum amount of information is piped into buyers' homes 24/7, across the world, and our relentless software system and dedicated staff are geared to manage all the inquires … and close the deal.
