Why C&NI should be your Broker
A timely yacht sale at the right price requires a combination of knowledge, experience and the ability to negotiate at the highest level. Camper & Nicholsons brokers possess these skills in abundance.
10 reasons to choose us
Since 1782, Camper & Nicholsons International has been synonymous with the world’s leading yachts, specialising in their sale, purchase, charter, marketing, management and construction. In an industry where knowledge prevails, C&NI employs the invaluable experience it has gathered over the past 200 years to offer clients a Brokerage Division superior in ability and diversity, delivering nothing but results and complete satisfaction. Whatsmore, with eleven offices spread across the world’s main yachting centres, C&NI clients are safe in the knowledge they can tap into C&NI’s unparalleled expertise, wherever they may be.
Highest sales performance in the industry
With over 170 central agency listings sold after the worst recession to hit the yachting industry - Camper & Nicholsons stands above its competitors, with a 22.7% market share of the industry’s top 10 performing brokerage companies*. By generating leading figures like these, year upon year, our clients are assured that Camper & Nicholsons is the brokerage firm to call on for guaranteed results.
The widest range of yachts for sale
C&NI markets between 120 and 140 yachts for sale at any one time, and stands either first or second in both value and volume for central agency listings available for sale, as well as total mileage. C&NI covers all size segments, unlike its competitors who often focus on either the larger or smaller yacht market. As a result, our clients have access to news and information on a vast range of motor and sailing yachts for sale, ranging between 24 metres – 80 metres. This in turn ensures C&NI clients have first pick of what the market currently has to offer, no matter what their criteria.
Investment in marketing
C&NI has a strong editorial presence within the yachting and lifestyle publications, and places more brokerage adverts than any other company (displaying on average 48% more than the other top 10 brokerage companies). C&NI also limits the number of yachts per advert - for example "a main competitor" displays 17.5 yachts per page on average whilst C&NI displays 3.5 yachts per page – ensuring your yacht is not lost amongst the crowd but rather receives the maximum exposure possible.
Extensive contact database
C&NI has the largest contact database of all the brokerage companies with over 12,000 qualified yacht owners and charter clients, as well as an additional database of UHNWI’s with liquid assets over US$5 million. Furthermore, C&NI brokers have developed extensive industry contacts through working closely with the world's leading builders, designers, naval architects, captains and suppliers.So whether you are selling, buying or building a yacht you can rely on our brokers to call upon their vast and notable network of contacts to help achieve your goals.
Highly experienced in major construction projects
Over the past 40 years, C&NI has project-managed many of the most ground-breaking and well-regarded superyachts to have launched around the world. Close working relationships with the top builders, designers and naval architects enables C&NI to ensure that owners get exactly what they want for the most competitive price. We honour our commitment to excellence by visiting the major boat shows across the world, maintaining a first-rate database of contacts and by insisting on a personal involvement in each and every project, from contract negotiation to delivery. C&NI brokers are currently involved in no less than five new construction projects, which include a 140m Fincantieri Navi, a 70m Tankoa and a 64m Sunrise. Furthermore, since 2009, they have been responsible for delivering 20 of the industry's most celebrated yachts, including the 75.8m Ocean Victory, the 64m Silver Angel, the 62m Roma, the 60m Darlings Danama and the 60m Yogi.
C&NI combines its expertise from each of its separate divisions to benefit every client, collaborating on projects to deliver the best deal and service possible. Between sales and charter brokers, the structure of C&NI sales force ensures that any contact or potential client interested in buying a yacht will be given the relevant purchase opportunities. And vice versa, should you be interested in having your yacht available for charter, your sales broker will co-ordinate such operations and marketing with a dedicated C&NI charter manager.
