Deals! Deals! European Yacht Values everywhere!
Just sold a Dutch Yacht in Italy and while there stopped everywhere I could. Photo’d here is a Benetti 105, we also saw a great Benetti 100 Tradition, an 85 Legend! All super clean and priced right!
We also saw a bank repo 147 Benetti and a San Lorenzo 108. Prices are extra good due to European economy. We can advise and make easy the many recent changes in Italy which have made Chartering and Purchase of Italian flagged yachts challenging.
When things get tough the best values show up!

Mediterranean Chartering is also a bargain as competition increases, values show up. One of our very good friends in the business says many American and Brazilian clients are booking for next summer. Call me I’ll refer you.
Why! Europe will be a bargain for maybe next 2 years. We have been through 2 other recessions in Europe and each time real values appear. I remember putting my mother up at La Reserve Hotel in Beaulieu France for an unheard of $160.00 per night in 1993 (normally then $450 - $1200 +). Mom lost her sight 2 years later and always thought me a hero and your family wills also when you Buy or Charter a Yacht and take them to Portofino or to the famous Eze-Village in France.
Photo’d here is a 68 ft. Hatteras Sportfish Convertible with hard top , low hours , clean ready to import. It’s in Italy and Ft. Lauderdale and Palm Beach is "fish heaven", so can you get a great value? You bet!
Also in Greece..... I also can recommend Greece values with government auctions every 2 weeks. Power and yacht conversions are now plug and play and fast. So it's easy to ship home.
