Brokerage Yacht Market in 2022 : A Review of key Trends and Developments


Buying a yacht is a project that requires a lot of thought. Keep up-to-date with our latest brokerage news from our expert brokers around the world.

Since 2020 the Sale & Purchase yacht market has shown contineous growth both on new yacht deliveries and on the second-hand market. Market shows persistent strength, while the entry-level categories are also seeing increased ordering by lower-income consumers.

For the past 2 years there has been a higher number of catamarans being sold, a few reasons for that include:

  • High demand for catamarans in general, leading to a large number of sales for a popular brand like Lagoon or Sunreef.
  • Good marketing and sales efforts by shipyards, which drive more sales of their boats.
  • Positive word-of-mouth and customer satisfaction with Lagoon catamarans, which could be encouraging more sales.
  • Attractive financing options offered, making the boats more accessible to buyers.

European shipyards are reporting full order books with very few slots available in 2023 and 2024 therefore you may want to take advantage of the second hand market. WI Yachts is specialised in second hand yacht sale we will be there, at your side, to organize the sale of your yacht and to put our 25 years of experience at your service. A longevity that we owe to our values of integrity, transparency and our demand for excellence, to which we owe your trust.
