Boat for sale in Port Ginesta

Do you have a boat in Port Ginesta Marina Barcelona or anywhere in Spain? Perhaps with the Covid Pandemic, you haven’t been able to visit for some time? If you think that buyers are not out in force at the moment, you are wrong. We have lots of buyers for Yachts in all price ranges.

The market

Buyers are out in force and have been all through the winter months. Most buyers are Spanish and Northern Europeans. We haven’t seen the Brits on the scene for some time, possibly due to Brexit. A considerable amount of uncertainty surrounds the VAT status of boats and yachts imported and exported from the UK.

What is happening to VAT

When posting this, the news is not very clear about VAT changes to boats and yachts. It would appear that the UK registered boats will be treated the same as boats that are outside the EU, and will not be unfairly penalised if they stay in Europe. Travel rules are clear for boats leaving the EU and coming back. For more information about changes in VAT rules, please contact us in Port Ginesta. 

Free Valuation 

Network Yacht Brokers Barcelona offers a free boat valuation service. We also operate a no sale no fee brokerage. Generally, yacht values have increased during the last six months. This is not the case for vessels that have not been maintained. Buyers want to see service history more than anything, so if you’re asking for the top price boat, please ensure maintenance is up to date and then you stand a good chance of selling.

Boats that have not seen owners for twelve months will be marked down slightly if they have not been lifted out for service. The yard in Port Ginesta has been very quiet in recent months, no doubt because owners cannot travel. Either the situation will remain the same, or the yard will become oversubscribed during February and March. Either way is you are thinking of selling or need some maintenance call our office we will be happy to arrange this for you.
