New yachts and used yachts for sale, including sail and power.
We have been a well trusted and respected brokerage house for over 25 years, and we take pride in our success in helping buyers and sellers experience the two happiest days of their lives. Allow one of our yacht brokers to help you find your new yacht.
Many people want an answer to one simple question: How can I sell my yacht? Bollman Yachts offers many services for the yacht seller as well as the yacht buyer. Our goal is to offer the services needed by both buyers and sellers of yachts in order to provide a simple point for clients to accomplish their goals.
Established in 1984, Bollman Yachts is a success story in the highly competitive yacht brokerage business, in part due to our location in the yachting capital of the world, Fort Lauderdale, Florida. We sell new and used yachts, both power and sail. We offer boats ranging from 40’ to 150’. Bollman Yachts sells millions of dollars worth of boats, yachts, sailboats and megayachts each year, working with people from all over the world on both sides of the transaction.
Success: The main reason for our success is our staff of hardworking and dedicated Brokers who have over 100 years of combined marine experience (with most brokers averaging 15 years or more). This creates a very diverse, experienced team with each broker contributing their unique knowledge and perspective of the different aspects of the industry. We are proud to have a Sundeer/Deerfoot specialist on staff, as well as the North American and Caribbean agent for Van DeStadt Design residing in our office.
To ensure our clients have the most up-to-date listings of boats and vessels on the market, our website is regularly updated. We are constantly working on ways to provide the best promotional tools for our sellers, while at the same time offering our buyers the widest selection of boats.
Technology: The business of New Yachts and Used Yachts Sales has changed dramatically in the modern world. With the internet playing such a major role in the buying and selling of yachts we have dedicated ourselves to supplying every available tool to our clients. By having an in-house webmaster and IT specialist we can offer our clients up to the minute information and cutting edge marketing techniques. We can showcase your yacht in the most effective ways possible.
We utilize all of the available online boat listing services which are not available to the general public. This allows us to ensure sellers that their yacht is placed before the correct pool of buyers, and this allows buyers the opportunity to find the right boat, not just a good boat. We work in conjunction with brokers from around the world and place our listings on the two largest international databases, Yacht World and Yacht Council along with Boats.com and MarineSource.com. This affords prospective buyers the ability to search for the perfect vessel themselves. Additionally we list our vessels on the major European listing services, to leverage the strong Euro for our sellers. This unique approach allows us to guarantee that your Yacht for sale is being placed in front of as many potential buyers world wide as possible. The European sites we currently list our vessels on are:
This is a great service to those looking for a yacht, especially located in Europe. European Export of yachts is set to be a strong market in today’s economic situation. If you are looking to buy or sell a yacht for European Export, please don’t hesitate to call one of our Broker’s to inquire about our European efforts. Or, simply ask one of our knowledgeable brokers to search for you, as our crew of seasoned brokers who understand the market and are able to help you pick a vessel that is not only right for you but will also hold value, provide years of pleasure and take you to the far away destinations of your dreams.
You’ll also find Bollman Yachts prominently featured in the major national and international boating Magazines with advertisements in such magazines as Yachting, Sail Magazine, The DuPont Registry, Yachts International, Power and Motoryacht, as well as the trader publications, including Sailboat Trader, Yacht Trader and Boat Trader.
Staying up to date: For information on boat shows in the U.S. and around the world, take a look at our extensive list on our Boat Shows and Events page. The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show held annually at the end of October is said to be the largest of its kind. If you’re planning on coming for the show or visiting us at other times during the year, we have a list of Hotels located near our offices in downtown Ft. Lauderdale and the convention center. For your convenience we have compiled a list of useful resources including South Florida attractions, local business links as well as local government organizations and links to useful marine industry laws, regulations and service providers such as local Marinas, fuel docks and local boating supply stores.
It is our goal to empower our clients to allow them to buy or sell yachts as easily and enjoyably as possible. A boat is supposed to bring you happiness and joy, not headaches and worries. If there is anything we can do to help you be happier with your boating lifestyle, please let us know. We are here to serve your needs, whether they be buying or selling of your yacht. About Us: What makes us, us! Pete Bollman started Bollman Yachts in 1984 and the company has grown from a few key brokers to a firm with ten seasoned brokers. We are strategically located in the heart of Fort Lauderdale, the Venice of America, and the Yachting capital of the world. Most of the yachts of the world are located in the southern waters of Florida, and Bollman Yachts is focused on this marketplace.
Jeff Erdmann, President of Bollman Yachts who started with Bollman Yachts in 1987. Jeff purchased the company from Pete Bollman when Pete decided that it was time for him to retire. The brokers of Bollman Yachts are hand selected and hired for their unique expertise in the yacht industry. From blue water sailors, to tournament fishermen, each broker understands and specializes in his or her own area. The yachting market today is so large that we feel this specialization gives us a true advantage in bringing usable knowledge on a variety of vessels to our clients.
Bollman Yachts lists new or used, power and sailing yachts, with prices ranging from $200,000 to $6,000,000 dollars, and has established itself as one of the leaders in the Brokerage industry. We did this the old fashioned way, by working hard, doing our research, keeping up with technology in the marketplace and by knowing the ins and outs of marketing our customer’s prized possessions. Bollman Yachts corresponds with the numerous other brokerage houses and dealers both foreign and domestic.
We use state of the art computer systems to track thousands of vessels, design and maintain our web presence and market yachts through personalized presentations and virtual tours. Yachts that are listed with us get the benefit of instant transmission of specifications to buyers and major brokers throughout the world via the Internet and the group of proprietary listing systems which we are members of. Bollman Yachts understands and agrees with the old saying “A picture is worth a thousand words”, and has never been truer than for today’s internet savvy yacht buyers. Bollman has invested thousands of dollars in the best wide angle digital camera equipment to get the highest quality images of our listings inside and out.
We have also invested in the IPIX 360 degree virtual tours that allow visitors to our website and to the various listing services to view a virtual image of your boat complete with 360 degree views and the ability to zoom in. This allows potential buyers to ‘view’ a boat, basically a sort of virtual showing. It allows buyers to have a better idea of what they are looking at. Normally a potential buyer would get photos and if he likes what he sees he would have to come and have a showing of the vessel. Often times the vessel isn’t exactly what the client wants, and these virtual tours allow us to make sure when we show the vessel the person is seeing a boat they are truly interested in. This lets us hand over the reigns to a potential buyer, he can research his own vessels and make educated decisions which lead to a better and more efficient buying experience for all parties.
Obviously all Bollman Yachts brokers are licensed and bonded by the State of Florida, but did you know we are also members in good standing of the Florida Yacht Brokers Association and Marine Industries Association of South Florida? These associations provide wonderful networking opportunities for our listings and ensure that we are on the forefront of ethical yacht sales and upstanding members of our local community.
