Re: Formosa 51 Ketch

I Alaya.
I feel for your situation. I’m getting on in years, and I sometimes wonder if the extensive renovations I’m doing to my boat are just for the benefit of someone else .
I am a great believer of selling a boat yourself. I sold my last one privately, for more than I paid for it. I sold my Rolls Royce privately, (so I could buy my boat), to a man in Honduras who never even saw it.
It can be done.
However: Having been in international marketing all my life I have a few suggestions:
1. It is a fair bet your biggest potential market is in America, or at least where they speak English as a second language. So convert dimensions and weights to English, Imperial, (in brackets next to the metric).
2. Also mark the price is US Dollars, with a bit spare for fluctuations. Euros are okay in Europe, but not the rest of the world.
3. What you are looking for are buyers, not to impress people with your detailed knowledge of the boat. I understand it is tempting to list all the great information you have, but I think you post too much detail. You continuously need to put yourself in the position of a buyer. He may read your list, then decide there are some things he doesn’t like, and never bother to contact you for further information. So you loose the change to “sell” it to him. You can never know what a buyer is looking for, (half of them don't know themselves), so you need to "hook them", then convince them your boat is worth visiting.
4. You should put good quality pictures on a website—any site will do, even a friends. Then put the link to the page on all the forums you can for free, and don’t forget to put an e-mail address on the page. If you can’t do this, then reduce the size of your pictures to suit forum sizes and post them somehow. A picture is worth a thousand words, so reduce the words and show the pictures.
5. You need exposure, exposure, exposure! to contact as many prospects as possible. If you click on my website below, you will see “items for sale”. So even as I send you this friendly advice I am “exposing” my own stuff.
Finally: I am not a yacht broker, nor ever could be.
Good luck.

Re: Formosa 51 Ketch

Actually, I like all the detail. I'm more likely to be "turned off" by the lack of major particulars in an ad. But - you sure could do with some extra lines (paragraph formatting) between the descriptive pieces and parts of the listing of your great boat. It's really hard to sort through it without slowing down and squinting a little

Looks like an excellent boat, but I'm in the market for a steelie. Great buy for someone looking to reenact the captain ron saga though!

Re: Formosa 51 Ketch

Best bet is to set up a website. This will give you the most bang for your buck. The vendor did this when he listed Atoll II which we purchased 4 years ago. In fact we flew from Canada to Borneo to look at the boat after we had made an offer based on what we saw. This was conditional of course but we did end up with a deal!!

These boats are beautiful and show very well in this way. Her age might hurt you a bit but it sounds with the low hours on the engine that either you sailed everywhere or she doesn't have a lot miles under her belt.

With all that recent work that you had done did you plan a trip or just get back from anywhere?

Thank you kindly for the compliment. I wouldn’t exactly call it “awesome,” more like dogged perseverance and .
