Buying a catamaran through YD Yachts, then selling with them……during a pandemic!!
Back in 2014, Yiannis and YD Yachts were the brokerage I used to buy my Fountaıne Pajot Bahia 46 catamaran. He helped organıse the yacht survey work I required, then handled all the paperwork involved in ownership change and exporting the yacht out of Greece.
Six and a half years later I decided to use Yiannis to sell my catamaran, but this time we were in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic with lockdowns and travel restrictions.
Not a problem for Yiannis!…….
The prospective buyers were Swiss, and they had a German survey/brokerage company working on their behalf. Due to Covid travel restrictions, we organised a video tour of the boat for them. After that, they made an offer subject to survey, and a deposit from them was held by YD Yachts to secure the boat for them. When travel restrictions were lifted the buyers came to the boat in Turkiye, and the purchase was completed.
Buyers in Switzerland, the boat in Turkiye, a pandemic…..despite all the problems Yiannis steered us efficiently through the process, explaining each step and looking after the interests of me as seller and also the buyers.
YD Yachts has a major global internet presence, and Yiannis is expert at his business and 100% trustworthy. I totally recommend anyone to work him.
