How valuable is your time? An Advisor can streamline the buying process for you in addition to doing the preliminary work in all phases. How are you expected to make educated decisions when all the information you are receiving from normal outlets, shows, and associations are funded by the industry? When starting your yacht search or building yacht research are you familiar with the current viable builders/brands and or shipyards? Do you have decades of industry experience? In most businesses, people pay for the expertise of that business, and the value it brings, an Advisor is no different. There are so many steps in the process and our services are focused around providing you with non-biased solutions based around your needs.
