Jade Yacht Sales is a division of Jade Worldwide LLC focusing on helping friends and friends to be with their yacht sale and purchase needs. The yacht and boat market over the last 2 years has been very dynamic leaving many in a whirlwind of questions. We have seen far too many brokers take advantage of this by providing a poor customer service and ultimately providing a disservice to their sellers and buyers.
Given the hot market, many times brokers simply throw a half baked ad up on the listing sites without ever putting in the work to understand the needs of the seller, the vessel specifics, the timing etc. Often times they get lucky… shortage of inventory is still driving many sales, but the process could be better. Buyers want good pictures, they want accurate details of the vessel condition and systems, and the big kicker… they want a broker who will respond when they are contacted. Sellers especially want this part.
We don’t mean to characterize all brokers in this light. They are MANY great brokers doing an amazing job. Unfortunately the real good ones are very busy. Jade Yacht Sales believes we can also be part of this group delivering on what we promise and would love to earn your business as well.
Jade Worldwide LLC is a collection of several businesses including Yacht Brokerage, Yacht Chartering, and soon to be Yacht Management. It was founded by a local couple who have a passion for boating and a proven history of great customer management and customer services. They have surrounded themselves with others in the industry who also strive to provide the best experience possible for potential yacht sellers and purchasers.
