Robert Christopher Yacht Sales has created a Yacht Auction function that combines the successful mechanical process of a traditional auction platform  in combination with the advertising, marketing and sales program including the RCYS qualified Priority Boat Buyers list. This program also includes our network of  RCYS brokers both domestic and international, our affiliates, MLS and using our forty years of knowledge and expertise in offering and selling boats and yachts of all sizes supported by the proven auction platform.

The RCYS Auction process utilizes the traditional online auction functionality to create the mechanism for yacht auctions in conjunction with various RCYS advertising programs such as our  websites, MLS systems, EBlasts, qualified mailing lists and social medias including Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and Youtube.  This is an effective and proven strategy to attempt to force a sale on certain qualified  vessels.  This marketing and sales mechanism is most effective where a seller is  highly motivated to sell, pricing is to a degree below market value and the priority  is liquidating the yacht.  Not all vessels or seller are best suited for a yacht auction;  however all listing clients can consider the RCYS Yacht Auction as an alternative in  the sale of their boat or yacht.

The effectiveness of auctions have been proven and thousands of vessel are offered daily. If the boat or yacht is not sold during the auction a substantial amount of activity is anticipated and created from buyer inquiries that may be followed up on post auction. We anticipate that the RCYS Yacht Auction Program will force a sale in over 70% of vessels that are offered at the auction and during the period following immediately thereafter.  There are advantages to the yacht auction which include the general absence of a survey and the longer process of negotiating survey issues. However the RCYS Yacht Auctions can be customized based on the vessel including offering of financing, owner financing and possibly a pre-purchase survey by seller.  A pre-purchase survey tends to increase the value of the boat or yacht.   Each vessel auction transaction is unique and you should contact RCYS or your registered RCYS Professional Yacht Broker to discuss the process, the fee structure and general policies of the RCYS Yacht Auction Program and to ascertain if RCYS Auction is a viable alternative for your boat or yacht sale.
