Our process makes buying a luxury yacht a breeze


Our Process

Take us on the journey to find your dream yacht.
Our 9-step process gives you the confidence to get you onboard your dream yacht.

1. The Discovery Session

This is an opportunity for us to meet and establish if our services are a good fit for you. Our aim in the discovery session is to provide value for you whatever the outcome.

2. Engagement of Service

If we feel that we are a good fit for each other after the discovery session, we then agree on the terms and sign the agency agreement.

3. Briefing

This is more of a focussed discussion to review your requirements and to get a crystal-clear picture of what type of vessel we are looking for.

4. The On & Off Market Search

This is where the fun begins! This phase is directed at searching for and then refining the selection to a shortlist of the 3 vessels that best match your requirements.

5. Due Diligence & Final Selection

Once we have our shortlist, we conduct comprehensive inspections and together we select the vessel that is perfect for you and your family.

6. Liase, Primary Negotiation & Offer to Purchase

We use our extensive experience and knowledge of the market to negotiate with the broker, dealer or vendor to work out the best deal.

7. Pre-Purchase Survey & Secondary Negotiation

The sea trial and pre-purchase inspections are carried out using our own expertise as well as other sub-contracted experts if required. We then enter into a secondary negotiation based on the findings.

8. Settlement & Vessel Transfer

We liaise with the brokers, dealers, vendors, solicitors, financial institutions, boat yards and any other parties to make sure settlement occurs as smoothly and swiftly as possible.

9. Post-Sale & Delivery

Once the settlement process is complete, we are able to work with you to get the vessel delivered to your desired location. We will also assist with any additional information and services that you may need.

Once you have found your dream yacht, let Neptune Oceanic support you in your yacht ownership journey.
