Why you should buy a yacht before the summer

Join the fleet of yacht owners who have bought through us already this year, and are reaping the benefits of an early-season purchase

Edmiston has sold 10 yachts so far this year, including 50% of the 10 largest yachts sold across the industry in 2023 to date.

Buying early in the year gives Owners the chance to personalise their new yacht and complete any necessary or desirable refit work before the summer season.

And, as many of our recent clients are aware, there’s another major bonus to buying a yacht early in the year: you can make the most of the coming charter season.

Several of our recent sales have since joined or returned to our charter fleet, including the 74m CRN built yacht ANDREA (formerly LADY JORGIA) – the largest motor yacht sold so far this year – which comes with a glassed-bottomed pool and a private terrace.

The largest sailing yacht to be sold this year, SILENCIO, now named PERSEUS, a 50m high-tech Perini Navi with a vast cockpit and packed toy box, is also returning to our charter fleet, while the 50m Heesen yacht DAISY D (formerly WHITE) is entering the charter market for the first time.

The sailing yacht market in 2023 is looking particular following a very successful 2022, the strongest year for sailing yacht sales on record.

If you’re looking to be on the water and sail this summer, make sure you purchase your yacht now. You may want to view the 54m high-performance sailing sloop PINK GIN VI from Baltic Yachts, which has always been kept private, and comes with two stunning fold-down balconies.

In terms of motor yachts in our fleet, the 47m classic Feadship A2 is a timeless superyacht in first class order, with a long-standing crew who have maintained her since her rebuild, while the 29m Benetti yacht ASLAN has just received a substantial price reduction and comes with a very charter-friendly five cabins, including two VIPs. Both yachts are in immaculate condition and ready to go.

Other standout yachts in our sales fleet include the 47m pedigree Feadship KISS, which comes with a private Owner’s deck; and the 2007 34m sports yacht LYNX from Leopard Yachts, which is in impeccable condition having been kept private in her original ownership, and with her shallow draft is ideal for reaching places other yachts can’t – perfect for a summer of island hopping.

Come to Edmiston to buy your next yacht, because at Edmiston, we don’t just list yachts, we sell them.
