DOEVE BROKERS AND VALUERS YACHTS AND SHIPS EST. 1972
When you want to sell your ship moored on her own berth
Do you want to sell a ship or boat? Doeve Brokers and Valuers has ample experience with the sale of various ships and boats. On this page you will find information about our services, the company and our way of working as a Yacht & Ship broker.
Doeve Brokers and Valuers has an office in NL-Vlaardingen (Rotterdam). We are serving the national and international markets from this location. We realize more than 50% of our turnover on foreign markets and that percentage is rising. The last couple of years we have invested a lot in international websites and contacts with international colleagues.
The Yachts, Barges, Vessels, Sailing Yachts, Motor Boats, Dutch Barges and Ships we offer are normally lying on the owner’s mooring. There are however possibilities to get a berth in a sales marina in the Netherlands.
Doeve Brokers and Valuers is yearly involved in approx. 80 till 100 deals and we have been active in this market since 1972.
Doeve Brokers and Valuers has all the required qualifications, a good view on the international market, a huge number of purchase candidates in our database, and a professional website in 4 languages. Our website is continuously supported by ads in printed yachting magazines in the Netherlands and other countries.
Doeve Brokers and Valuers is, as you will understand, not one of the weekend Broker type, without any qualifications, competence and real knowledge, with a computer in a room at home, trying to announce crafts from clients on their own website for very low rates and hoping that somebody will see that website.
Doeve Brokers and Valuers is working for Vendors (consumers) on the HISWA BROKERS "registered conditions". These give our clients the security of the HISWA guarantee which provides a facility called "Geschillencommissie Watersport", where disputes concerning the relationship between you and your Broker may be arbitrated. We also have as a company a safe, trade-responsible, insurance! For commercial Vendors we are working on the NBMS "registered conditions".
Is Doeve Brokers and Valuers the broker of your choice and is your craft lying in/on the EU continent or in the UK, max. approx. 1.000 km away from the city of NL-Rotterdam? At first we will make an appointment for an inspection on board. During that inspection we will tell you the possibilities for your craft in the current market. We will advise you regarding the preferred asking price. If we can agree on that we will proceed with the inspection on board and make all required photographs. When we have all details we will work it out and after your approval we will introduce your craft to the market. If you don’t want to make use of our services we will depart as good friends without any costs.
Our commission is based on the international market. More and more candidates don't want to buy directly from owners while there is no 100% security anymore that such a private vendor is free to sell because of mortgages etc. We, as Qualified Brokers, are able to give candidate purchasers the safety they need. We have a Third Party Account Foundation (Escrow account), which is juridical not connected with the Brokerage company. We also have a direct entrance into the Dutch Ships Register and we are able to do research in Foreign Ships Registers.
When you want to have information about our commission, you can always get in contact with us by phone or by email.
Our commission is always "No cure no pay". Our contracts are for a period of 9 months with an automatic prolongation of 3 months each time and a 3 months’ notice.
