Selling a boat with NYA is a smooth sailing process, from creating the boat advert through to the final sale. We have everything you need to sell in one place.
We only charge a commission if we make a sale. The commission is 8% plus VAT of the sale price, with a minimum commission of £1,500 including VAT. We offer free sales berths for six months on both of our dedicated sales sites in Horning and Brundall. We always strive to get you the best price for your craft.
We will advertise your boat on many boat sales platforms, including online and printed boating media to ensure maximum exposure. We have many people waiting to purchase a boat and send them updates about the vessels we have for sale. During viewings, a sales team member will be present to make sure your boat is treated respectfully and shown it in its best condition. You can rely on our hardworking team to make every effort to sell your boat.
Boats offered on a brokerage basis are sold as seen so should be clean and in good working order. If you would like your boat to be as good as our stock boats, we can inspect it. After the inspection, we will give you a quote for any needed work. List your boat with us and we'll maintain its sale condition for a monthly fee of £1.70 per foot.

Excellent service throughout, we have both bought and sold two boats through NYA Horning now and know several others who also use them. They have all without exception been nothing but courteous, friendly and helpful on every single occasion, we will be buying our next boat through them as well when the time arises.Simon F
Compared to some other Yacht Brokers nearby, Chris and his team offered the best choice of craft in our price bracket, which all appeared clean and well prepared and offered useful advice guiding us through the purchase of our first boat. Should we ever be in the position to afford to change it, I would have no hesitation in returning to them.Malcolm M
Very helpful and professional staff. Would recommend to anybody buying or selling a boat.Terry L

Are you selling a boat and not sure where to start? At NYA we are expert brokers and have been for over 50 years, so why not start with us?
At NYA of course! Now, we might be biassed, but we truly believe there is no broker out there better equipped to sell your boat. We take care of everything, from finding a buyer to the trials, surveys, deposits, contacting, financing, registration and title transfer. We ensure a professionally concluded sale for both buyer and seller, saving both parties time and effort.
We advertise extensively on all major portals. Rightboat, TheYachtMarket, Boat Trader, Apollo Duck, Boatshop24, Boats and Outboards to name just a few. We run focused social media and circulate all newly listed crafts on our feeds.
Lead times can depend on a variety of factors, but presented well and marketed correctly most good quality crafts sell quickly. Our average sale time is around 6 weeks, allowing for surveys and completion.
Photography is an absolute must! We take a multitude of hi-resolution images which are carefully chosen in order to highlight appealing features and give a realistic picture of condition.
Not necessarily as we can help you. If you don’t know the details of your boat, we certainly will! Either way, we’ll take care of creating a detailed advert and specification for your craft.
In most cases we’ll visit and appraise your vessel in person. Experience and market awareness play a big part in any valuation process and setting the right price. We will always discuss our thoughts with you and agree on a strategy to achieve the best possible outcome.
It's always best to present your craft clean and uncluttered. Once you’ve removed your personal gear and equipment we can help with most aspects of presentation.
No, our sales berths are free for 6 months.
Yes, you’ll need to prove legal ownership of your craft. We’ll also need any registration details, Boat Safety Certificate (if applicable), manuals and any documentary history maintenance. The more information we have on file the more detailed picture we can build in order to promote the sale of your craft.
Any time is a good time! Seasonal trends have been less obvious in recent years, with strong sales over the winter periods. Summer will always be a more active time for boating and boat owners but in short, there isn't a bad time to sell your craft.
Yes, we can arrange transport by road, river and sea. We have strong relationships with the best hauliers in the industry and access to qualified Ocean delivery crews. Local river movements are usually undertaken by our own delivery team. All NYA Sales and Service team members are RYA qualified Helmsmen.
What have you got? NYA has an open mind policy. We’re used to taking boats of all shapes and sizes, but occasionally arrange part exchange with motorhomes, caravans, cars and other high value goods.
