Selling your yacht is the kind of activity that falls somewhere between selling your home and selling your car. That is because a yacht shares characteristics of both. A yacht does function as a vehicle because your buyers will be looking at it as a means to get out on the sea and travel from place to place in luxury and comfort. But if the living accommodations must also be top notch because the customers for your yacht are looking for high quality and are not going to compromise their high expectations.
In fact, the last consideration you should have in preparing to sell your yacht is price. Naturally you are not going to ask others to pay the same price for a used yacht that it costs to buy a new one. But your primary concern to attract a buyer to your yacht is not price but how to prepare your yacht so it is as “good as new” or better.

If you either have or find yourself developing a genuine fascination and love of not only yachts but the lifestyle of yachting, you are not alone. When you begin either using your new yacht or regularly chartering a yacht for a weekend of luxury or a special vacation, it’s easy to fall in with a society of yacht owners where you can share your enjoyment of these very special boats and learn from each other as well.
Yacht clubs are one way that yacht owners and yacht lovers alike gather routinely to share their common interest in diverse settings. Even if you are not a yacht owner yet yourself, it isn’t hard to get an invitation to yacht club meetings where your enthusiasm for yachting will only intensify. One way that the knowledge about yachting spreads easily in almost a viral way at yacht club gatherings is that these societies commonly mix together those who enjoy luxury yachting on a motor yacht to those who love sailing to those who own yachts as big as cruise ships to those who are into yachting for the thrill of yacht racing.

There may have been a time when you did not know what the term “yachting” meant. In fact, the very definition of what makes a yacht different from other boats often escapes many people. For the yacht owner, there is probably no more frustrating experience than to be discussing this part of your life at a social gathering only to have someone respond “I know what you mean, I love my fishing boat.” The two could not be more different and the better people understand that, the fewer strange looks you will get when you tell your associates that one of your passions is “yachting”.
Two things that are most often true of yachts is that they are mostly large boats and that they are primarily used for recreation. But despite some predefined notions of how yacht owners approach their passions, there is a lot of variety to how yachts are used recreationally. For one thing, yachting is split between those who enjoy yachting for the luxury of cruising the high seas in maximum comfort and those who love yachts for racing. Both approaches to yachting have strong populations and lots of support industry to feed the growing enthusiasm for yachting amongst the yachting population.

A yacht is a thing right? If you put the question to the man on the street, he would tell you a yacht is a large luxurious boat. And that definition would not be far off. But there is more to be known here because there is also such a thing as “to yacht” which is a verb and “yachting” which we have to add to our picture. So to really understand this fascinating side of boating, we have to understand yacht as both the noun and the verb.
It’s not too big a stretch to say that going yachting means you are going to be on the water and probably on the ocean. Most yachts do not operate on lakes and certainly not in rivers or ponds so by definition yachting is an ocean going recreational activity. But within that broad definition, “yachting” can mean different things for a wide number of yachters who all are using that luxurious boat to achieve an ultimate in recreational experience on the water.
