Why List Your Cruising Catamaran As “For Sale By Owner” (FSBO) With Catamaran Guru?
Here are some great reasons:
Usually the boat seller pays a customary 10% brokers fee or commission on its sale. The fee covers advertising, market analysis, promotions, showings, escrow account, documentation handling, transfer of funds, etc. However, if the seller and buyer feel confident handling the sales process on their own, you can do the work and bank that 10% or use part of your savings to make your boat than the competition.
That’s a win for both parties! Catamaran Guru earns no commission from FSBO listings advertised here and we can ethically not intervene or advise on a FSBO listing. We offer inexpensive listing services to catamaran sellers worldwide. However, we do represent yacht sellers or yacht buyers, if requested separate from FSBO.
