If you are moving in the right direction, you are making headway.
Over the last year we have witnessed an unprecedented desire for people to buy a trawler and take off cruising. The rushed timing and sparse availability has strained trawler brokers and created a fast paced environment propelled by a swelling wave of buyers eager to enter into transactions.
The over booked, stretched thin and doubled up pace of the initial Covid sales surge has softened, slightly. The eagerness of ready and willing buyers to get going and take off has strengthened, but the selection of appealing trawlers at competitive prices is limited. Low supply and high demand yields basic economic consequences.
Waiting tests our patience, especially when you are ready to move forward, but can’t find what you are looking for. The used trawler market will correct over time. The seller’s market is losing some steam and the typical September/October increase of new listings appears to be generating a swell of new possibilities.
Time and tide wait for no one, but those who are prepared, ready with finances, practiced with skills and decisive on what they want can make a swift move when the right opportunity arises. We are happy to help our clients out by offering our resources – lists of lenders, insurers, marine attorneys or any other guidance we can provide.
For you to cut your own wake, you need to be on the right boat and you need to know and understand your choices, be ready with all of the aspects of ownership and work with a professional to advise you and advocate for you.
The JMYS team is experienced and up to speed with the pace and nuances of the current market. Please get in touch as the year winds down so that we can work together to help you prepare for ownership and help you select the right trawler. Let’s work together so by 2022 you can be happily aboard and making your own headway.
Jeff and the JMYS team
