The Time to Buy is Now

The time to buy is now! Superyacht brokerage sales continue to boom, with the first three months of the year showing a record number of vessels changing hands following a strong end to 2020, exclusive BOAT Pro data can reveal.

Combined sales for January, February and March this year showed a 46% increase compared to the same period last year, ending the first quarter of 2021 with 133 brokerage sales versus 91 in 2020.

Global yacht sales haven’t seen a first quarter this strong since 2018. Industry numbers that compare Q1 2020 to Q1 2021 show a huge leap in boats and yachts sold worldwide.

Data reveals that the U.S. makes up about one-third of global boat sales. In North America, 9,336 boats were sold in Q1 2021 compared to 6,526 boats sold in Q1 2020. Europe and Asia also experienced a strong first quarter with a significant increase in yacht sales compared to Q1 2020 and 2019.

Brokerage experts say:

  • Increase in new superyacht buyers
  • Interest in larger vessels on the up
  • Growth driven by travel frustrations
  • Boom likely to continue into H2 2021 and possibly beyond
  • Concerns over Q3 and Q4 stock availability
