Even prior to activating your yacht for sale in our marketing program we'll have a list of qualified buyers ready to engage. Our brokers utilize the latest in Cloud Server technology and mobile applications to put this data at their fingertips wherever they may be.

Market Analytics & Reporting

True market insights and analytics ‒ Our proprietary Market Analysis gives our clients regional and seasonal sales data to help identify when and where is best to list your boat, evaluation of the factors effecting the time to sell, depreciation figures based on your specific boat, and an in-depth analysis of where your boat stands in the market. This analysis provides the foundation for our strategy to get your boat sold faster and at a better price than any brokerage.

Our list of yachting enthusiasts has been carefully nurtured over the past 20 years, offering our loyal customers the first look at our latest listings, invites to upcoming events, and insight into today's yacht market.

Straight to your Mailbox

A timeless, yet effective method of outreach long forgotten by many in the industry. Our customers receive regular market reports and other valuable information direct to their mailboxes. We promote our listings through quarterly mailings with professionally designed postcards and listing announcements.

We Know the Power of Print

Nearly 80% of all boaters still enjoy a few moments each month relaxing in the cockpit, flipping through the pages of their favorite magazine. We understand the importance and impact of print. Each month our advertisements reach over 100,000 boats in both national and regional publications. You'll also find us in local industry directories distributed in yacht clubs across the country.

Inbound Marketing That Puts People First

We will surpass your expectations and go far beyond the norms of a traditional brokerage

Gone are the days of waiting for the phone to ring or relying upon a well-crafted ad in a magazine or listing online. We're networking constantly, we engage and interact with fellow boaters and foster relationships along the way. When you put dollars and cents second and people first, something great happens. You close more deals and sell more boats. That's our secret, but one everyone knows it. When you see us at the boat shows, it won't be sitting in the cockpit buried in our cell phone, we'll be the first to shake your hand and strike up a conversation.

We Tend to be Rather Social

We've been building relationships for over 36 years and understand the importance of customer loyalty. Our philosophy is that we're not in the yacht business dealing with people, we are in the people business dealing with yachts. Our annual events and social gatherings draw a large crowd and boats are often discussed, sometimes sold, over a glass of wine or cocktail. Our open houses showcase our premier listings while our annual events such as our Sundowner Social and Boats ‒ Beer & BBQ Customer Appreciation Party, tend to draw crowds over 100 people.

Our website ranks higher, is more engaging, and delivers more qualified leads than any other brokerage website.

Multiple Listing Services

Every yacht listed by David Walters Yachts is showcased on the worlds largest yacht MLS system, Yacht World. While most brokerages utilize this service, few fully implement it throughout their entire marketing strategy. We not only market on Yacht World and its affiliate services in the US and Europe but have integrated the power of Yacht World into our website to offer the ability to seamless search thousands of yachts directly through DavidWaltersYachts.com.

Every listing at David Walters Yachts is available for co‒brokerage. We encourage and enable co‒operation with our industry partners and regularly share our listings with leading firms to get‒the‒word‒out on your yacht. Is your yacht currently listed? Ask your broker if your yacht is listed as "available for co‒brokerage" and if they participate in Private Label Search. If not, your listing is not reaching the full audience of buyers that it should.

Social Content that Engages

We stay connected with our followers on a variety of social media platforms. Producing content and articles that are relevant and entertaining. Our YouTube channel, featuring over 200 yacht tours and videos, is one of the most subscribed to in the industry!
