The online yacht auction platform.

Boathouse Auctions is a turnkey, time-sensitive online auction platform that connects prequalified buyers with motivated sellers. From superyachts to sailboats, buying or selling your next yacht is now possible from the comfort of your home, office, or anywhere on the go.

Yacht buying and selling made simple

At Boathouse Auctions, we recognize the limitations with the traditional approach to buying and selling yachts. Online auctions have become commonplace for high-end real-estate, fine-art, and luxury cars, so why not yachts? That’s why our team created Boathouse Auctions – the first and only fully-integrated online auction platform designed explicitly to remove friction in the sales process for both yacht buyers and sellers.

For Buyers

The future of yacht buying is here

From yachting enthusiasts to first-time buyers, Boathouse Auctions provides an optimal and convenient way to purchase your next vessel. By streamlining the traditional sales approach, buyers are presented with excellent buying opportunities. At the click of a button, name your price from our curated inventory of motor yachts and sailboats from motivated sellers around the world.

For Sellers

A deliberately different approach to yacht sales

When selling a luxury yacht, not only do sellers get frustrated and fatigued, but time is real money. Days on market are costly. Too often in the traditional model, ‘days’ turn into years which in turn begins the slippery slope of price reductions.

Boathouse Auctions was built as a solution to the costly problem of time. We work with sellers to eliminate costs by bringing buyers together, at the same time, to accomplish in weeks what otherwise can simply take too many months or years. By aggregating competition, our approach creates a sense of urgency and an accelerated sale of your yacht.

Sell your yacht

Do you have a vessel or listing that seems to be priced about right but just isn’t selling? Have you had multiple people interested – yet they lack urgency? With Boathouse Auctions, our time-sensitive approach accelerates the process while eliminating costs to provide an optimal net return. Sell your yacht on your terms and timeline in just six weeks or less.

Don't just take our word for it

As a seller, the lack of a pending event plus the extended due diligence a buyer requires creates a buyer-advantaged process. Boathouse Auctions has successfully and politely modified the approach to bring this archaic process into the 21st century. I am thrilled with the result.

As the carrying costs of larger yachts can be significant, days on market are costly. By offering Altitude Adjustment II through Boathouse Auctions, the finite timeline of the auction process serves as a motivation to prospective buyers and as an asset to owners in terms of time and cost savings.

I praise Boathouse Auctions for leading me to the successful close of the boat I’d never before considered.
