Here at Performance Boating Sales we believe that the difference between enjoying your yacht to the maximum usual comes down to three things. Firstly, maintenance which we’ve written about previously, secondly boat handling, more of which later, and lastly but probably most importantly choosing the right yacht in the first place! So much research is done on line now that good brokers often don’t get the opportunity to use their extensive experience to point buyers in the right direction based on their needs and aspirations. So, while having so much information available on the net these days is very useful, buyers should be aware that it is easy to be misled by misinformation, and that there’s a lot of inaccurate information in the public domain. Here at Performance Boating Sales the directors have been sailing for over 45 years each and have owned, cruised and raced yachts extensively on all corners of the World. Our staff similarly have a great depth of experience being active sailors and have had experience across a wide spectrum of sailing. This combined with the numbers of clients that we’ve assisted over the years and the number of yachts that we’ve equipped for owners puts us in the unique position of having a broad knowledge of not only all types of yachts and their characteristics, but also what equipment works and conversely should be avoided. Between us we have done everything from optimising and sailing Sydney-Hobart winning yachts, to equipping cruising yachts for round-the-world cruising, and everything in between. So by all means gather as much information as possible, but feel free to come and see us, or give us a call to talk through what you are considering. There‘s a good chance that we’ll be able to offer you some positive advice that will help you to make the best choice possible.
