The market of available trawlers is opening up with more quality boats coming on the market and prices shifting slightly lower as supply and demand issues are balancing. The days of finding an attractive boat on mass marketing websites has changed. An increasing percentage of trawlers are changing hands privately- a quick blip and gone. Even aggressive shoppers miss out on boats that were never introduced to the public. Active buyers know that the dynamics of searching have changed and more success is coming through committed relationships with tuned-in brokers who have unique insights into availability and often connect a buyer and seller behind the scenes.
JMYS is uniquely positioned and deeply connected with the trawler community with special emphasis on premium quality brands such as Selene, Kadey Krogen and Nordhavn. From past clients (turned friends) relationships and our reputation as trawler educators, our connection to the community allows us to regularly communicate with many owners, and we often find ourselves being their first call when they start to consider their next move.
Searching has changed. Aligning with a broker who will listen to your plans, assist with preparation for ownership and advise on evaluating choices can enable you to fly below the radar and secure the trawler you have been looking for.
The seller’s market is thawing, we are actively working with many buyers and sellers, please reach out if you would like to discuss how we may be able to work with you.
We welcomed two available trawlers to our lineup in the recent months. These boats are both located on the east coast, and offer wonderful cruising experiences. Visit each listing and contact the broker to get aboard!
