Set Sail with YachtX Inc: Yacht ExchangeInnovation award
USA- Frederick, MD | Jul 13 2012 | (23:08:54 - EDT)
YachtX, Inc. just announced the launch of YachtX.com, the boating industry's first online yacht exchange. YachtX.com removes the obstacles that have inhibited owner-managed selling of high value boats and yachts – rendering the expense of commission-based yacht brokerage obsolete.
Boats are complex and costly personal assets, and selling them is a specialized process. Until now, boaters have had only two choices when selling their prized possession: hire a yacht brokerage or sell entirely on their own. Yacht brokerage comes at the expense of seller control and, of course, a large commission (typically 10% of the sales price). For boaters wishing to influence their sales outcome and preserve equity by selling on their own, support services beyond basic advertising web sites have simply not existed.
YachtX.com directly addresses this market need by providing intelligent, convenient and secure web-based services that streamline the entire yacht sales process, making affordable owner-managed yacht sales a reality. Through private user 'dashboards' accessible on a 24/7 basis by computer, tablet PC or smart phone, YachtX.com delivers marketing and sales management services with:
No Sales Commission – just simple $75/4 weeks to sell, free access to buy
Complete Guidance – from listing through closing
Powerful Automation – multi-site marketing, negotiation, escrow and all documents
Coordination w/Marine Service Providers – title, finance, insurance and survey
Unprecedented Flexibility – no long-term commitment, non-exclusive
YachtX.com offers unprecedented value to the boating community. For example, seller costs on a boat that sells for $200,000 within 6 months through YachtX.com will be $375. Brokerage commission for that same boat would be $20,000 – a savings of $19,625!
"Why expend valuable equity on commission fees – or risk not achieving the best possible sales outcome by ceding control to a third-party brokerage? YachtX.com delivers a powerful alternative; an experience for yacht buyers and sellers alike that is in many ways superior to brokerages," said YachtX CEO, Fraser Seymour. "Our feature-rich, cloud-centric technology provides YachtX.com users with a level of transparency, convenience, security and cost savings that are not achievable any other way. This kind of improvement in transaction efficiency and control, we believe, has the potential to revolutionize the way boaters buy and sell their boats."
