Times could not be any stranger – in the boat business and everywhere else.
Our trawler brokerage business is getting slowly back up to speed. We are more aware and cautious about interaction with people (like not shaking hands) and doing more camera phone showings if buyers can’t physically travel to step aboard.
Recently I listed a beautiful Selene 43, Misty Pearl. I recall discussing strategy for marketing the boat and our consensus was that given the Covid-19 Pandemic, we should manage the marketing to coincide with marinas and other areas opening up. After all, (here comes the myth) no one is going to be looking to buy a boat during times like these.
