Their team is full of qualified and knowledgeable agents who make getting a yacht sold at auction their priority. The marketing program is very comprehensive, and the results confirm that.”

“DeCaro Yacht Auctions provided the solution and results I was seeking. Their 30-day marketing campaign is unmatched, generating the immediate interest I desired. My 116’ Hatteras, Tri-Deck Motor Yacht, “Easy Rider”, now belongs to another and I couldn’t be more pleased with the results achieved. I would use DeCaro Auctions International again as an avenue to sell my luxury assets. I just wish I found and used DeCaro Auctions two years ago.”
– Bill Ramonas, Seller of “Easy Rider”

WHY LUXURY YACHT AUCTIONS ARE SUCCESSFUL
Our process inspires wealthy individuals who currently may not be in the market, to become buyers and compete at a luxury yacht auction for remarkable yachts.
- The word auction creates the perception of opportunity for buyers
- The auction date creates a sense of urgency among buyers, creating a defined window of opportunity
- The yacht is elevated above all other inventory on the market, putting the yacht on center stage, in the spotlight
- Drives buyers to the yacht so the seller is no longer chasing the market
- Creates a new and larger buyer pool for the yacht
- Creates competition among the buyers
- Seller is negotiating from a position of strength with multiple buyers instead of weakness with only one buyer
- When using our highly experienced auctioneer Daniel DeCaro, an atmosphere of competition is created at the auction, thus driving the price
- Credibility of the DeCaro Auction Team creates buyer confidence and thus more registered/participating bidders
THE DECARO AUCTION PROCESS
- Determine if the seller and the yacht are candidates for the program – Does the seller truly want to sell the yacht, do we have a motivated seller? – Is it a luxury yacht, in good condition?
- Work with the listing agent to obtain current information regarding the yacht
- Marketing/Advertising firm determines marketing budget (paid upfront by seller and is yacht specific)
- Auction date is determined, DeCaro Listing Agreement is signed by seller, marketing begins immediately
- Seller sends marketing and engagement funds to DeCaro
- Weekend Previews for yacht to be determined
- Broker’s Open Event onboard the yacht with drawing and give-away
- Weekly conference calls with seller, listing agent and DeCaro Team to discuss open house traffic, feedback, private showings, etc.
- Auction on Saturday following final preview – registration from 9-11 am, auction begins at 11 am.
- Settlement within 30 days of the auction
