Massive hike in superyacht sales in 2013 with Fraser Yachts leading the way
Fraser Yachts sold more superyachts than any other brokerage in 2013, as the overall market for superyachts increased by a massive 30% compared to 2012.
Fraser Yachts has once again secured by far the largest share of the superyacht market in 2013, according to the latest data published in Boat International’s ‘Market Intelligence’ report. The firm continues to increase the lead it has held over other yacht brokerage houses for the last four years.
The report by the industry’s leading source of statistical information shows that Fraser Yachts sold 50% more yachts than its closest competitor and closed 30% more deals than in 2012, a substantial increase compared to other brokerage houses.
Massive growth in demand for superyachts
The figures confirm that the total number of yachts sold in 2013 increased by over 30% compared to the number of yachts sold in 2012. This is by far the largest year on year increase since the recession hit and a very good sign for the industry as a whole.
While traditionally Europeans and North Americans have dominated the market for superyacht sales, the latest figures indicate that Middle Eastern owners are taking over in terms of purchases, with nearly half of the ultra-high net worth individuals there saying they either own or intend to buy a large yacht.
Fraser Yachts builds on inside knowledge
Fabio Ermetto, Chairman of Fraser Yachts commented, “We have a very strong sales team here at Fraser Yachts and this is proven year after year by the statistics that are published by neutral sources such as Boat International Media. Our brokers expertise and inside knowledge, combined with our extensive database and marketing expertise leads to successful results time and again.”
Ermetto added “The really impressive growth has been since the Monaco Yacht Show, in the last four months we’ve sold 24 yachts, and in January alone 3 of the yachts we sold were in in-house deals, with the latest being the 60m Ulysses. The numbers speak for themselves, if you want to buy a yacht or have your existing yacht sold why go anywhere else?”
