Before signing a listing agreement, we analyze each vessel thoroughly to ensure we can deliver you the best possible results. One of our experienced brokers will walk through your boat, take photographs and sometimes video, note special features and equipment, and become completely familiar with your vessel, inside and out. While listed with JBYS, we position your boat in our state-of-the-art network of diverse marketing and advertising venues. This includes representation on numerous boating MLS sites, such as Yacht World, Boat Trader and Boats.com. We also promote your vessel through monthly ads in Great Lakes magazines, local and international boat shows, special displays, numerous social media platforms, open house events, digital retargeting efforts and email campaigns to 1,000s of subscribers. Of course, all our listings are featured on this mobile-friendly Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales website. We monitor and track every thing we do on a monthly basis and use our own data as well as industry data going back many years to enhance our strategies, justify every penny we spend and assure optimal performance to get the job done. Our efforts reach throughout the Great Lakes, across the country and around the globe. We can confidently say it would be very difficult for you to find another brokerage house that monitors and strategizes their marketing, advertising and data tracking efforts as comprehensively as JBYS does.
From the moment you contact us, JBYS will strive to make your selling experience EFFECTIVE, EFFICIENT and best of all HASSLE FREE. We do all the showings and sea trials of your boat, arrange for haul-outs and surveys, and can also provide buyer financing and insurance. We will take care of the closing for you and manage all legal transfers and buyer registration requirements.
Closings can be tricky and difficult these days with owners holding their assets in sometimes complicated ways, and different states having different rules and regulations. The closing team in our business office is super knowledgeable, extremely detail oriented and, in our opinion, the BEST. Last, but not least, JBYS will deliver your boat to the new owner.
