Trading in your boat

I find that often-times when clients see boats that are represented on a brokerage basis they are discouraged because of the misconception that a dealer or broker can only take a trade on a boat they own in inventory. I make a specific point to include “Trades Welcome” in all of my listings because Savage Yachts is happy to facilitate trade-in transactions on any of our represented vessels, whether owned in inventory or represented as a brokerage offer. 



If you’re considering upgrading, downsizing, or changing the style of boating you do, negotiating a trade is a great way to transition into the new boat while keeping the process as simple as possible. 

Some benefits to considering trading your current boat are: 
  • No double-ownership concerns; slip space, carrying costs, etc. 
  • Freedom to pursue an immediate opportunity on a new vessel 
  • Minimize fees for two sales transactions 
  • Sales-tax credit, which often helps to close the gap between trade value and retail sale value 
As an experienced broker, part of my job is knowing all of your options for making a change in boat ownership, including creative trade options. If your current boat is the only thing standing in the way of a new purchase, I’m happy to discuss the options for trade or sale and give my recommendation for the best way to accomplish your goals.  A brokerage trade can be one of the best values in our industry with regard to cost for services, drop me a line to find out how!

Tampa Boat Show - 2013

Well, it's September, and in Tampa that means Boat Show time!  This year was the 48th year for the Tampa show, which is sponsored by Progressive Insurance, the NMMA, and others.  This is the longest-running and largest show in Tampa, and features a good mix of new boats from local dealers and manufacturers, brokerage boats, and boating products and services.

Show organizers reported more boats in this years show than any of the last five years, which is great news for a show that's always fun and popular with local Tampa boaters.


Tampa Boat Show 2013; Tampa, FL

Inside exhibits include mostly boats under 30' with the exception of a few of the larger Center Consoles.  Many of the local dealers bring multiple brands to the show, and some of the local custom and semi-custom builders bring their latest models.  There are also booths for boating products, local marinas, etc.

The in-water portion of the show features new boat exhibits from some of the larger local dealers, and some brokerage-represented boats as well (although brokerage seemed to be a smaller part of the show this year than in years past).  Outside exhibits this year featured everything from the 12' Long X-Fish Microskiff to an 88' Horizon, and plenty in between.
