We continue to meet new potential trawler buyers who contact us for advice and assistance. Most know what they want, but can’t find it, making this market just as peculiar for trawler buyers. Seems like by the time a listing shows up online it is often already spoken for. The speed in which vessels are introduced and put under contract is baffling – business is moving way too fast. It’s a frustrating game played with good luck and perfect timing – making trawler ownership temporarily illusive to many who simply want to buy a trawler and go cruising.
Buyers, Sellers and Brokers are befuddled. The inventory shortage of good quality trawlers coupled with more new buyers interested in cruising adventures is agitating the market waters. Like confused seas, we know time is the ultimate solution that will resolve this situation and return calm seas.
We regularly discuss with our clients how they can prepare for sudden opportunities. While waiting, we help buyers understand skills to develop and lessons to learn to take advantage of this waiting phase. Sellers who connect with us are pleased that we have buyers lined up, ready to move forward and take off.
If you would like some insight into how you might buck this oncoming current, we welcome the opportunity to discuss how JMYS might be able to assist you.
