Enter email address to hear of auction listings of vessels of all different sizes, lengths, and values, with high-quality being the common thread.

Sometimes it just takes too long to sell a yacht. That’s why we built Boathouse Auctions – to help yacht owners solve for the problem of time. We put the control, in terms of sale date and minimum acceptable price, in the hands of the yacht broker and owner, while at the same time providing attractive opportunities to buyers able to act with urgency.

Working through a large network of top yacht brokers, vessels come from motivated clients, nonprofit boat donation programs, and special situations. Our online yacht auction platform offers owners of high-quality yachts an alternative to what could potentially be a long traditional market sale by allowing them to discount some carrying costs in exchange for a time-certain solution that delivers equivalent net proceeds, adjusted by time.


Below is a sample six-week auction timeline. The actual timeline is determined by the listing broker and owner, and can be longer or shorter depending upon particular needs.
