    Default Advise on Selling Motor Boats Privately

    Does anyone have any advice, recommendations, war stories for someone considering selling their 14m motorboat privately. The value is going to be in excess of £200k, so I am looking for the "do's" and "don'ts" please. Thanks all

    Donít do sea trials unless a survey has been carried out OR a non refundable deposit taken (subject to survey) !!

    Do take great pictures
    Do build a website on something easy like Wix
    Do set up a Google AdWords campaign with keywords that match your boat and similar in class
    Do pitch the price right to start rather than super hign with the plan to reduce later

    +1 for taking good photos, in focus, showing things in context and relevant. Also make sure the boat is neat and tidy and the sea toilet clean and EMPTY!

    Try it on the Fairline boats old and new Facebook page .
    Adhere to the rules as if you were a broker from both sides .
    For what itís worth itís a great and very well maintained boat , of course I am biased , but I donít think anyone will find a better one.
