Brewer Yacht Sales sees recent uptick in sales

Brewer Yacht Sales said it has sold 50 brokerage boats for two months in a row.

Brewer Yacht Sales said it has sold 50 brokerage boats for two months in a row.

“That’s 9.65 percent of Yacht World’s reported boat sales in Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts and New York,” Brewer Yacht Sales office manager Jackie Joslyn said in a statement.

Brewer Yacht Sales said its used-boat inventory was trimmed to 300. The business said it averages 600 brokerage boats for sale.

“There’s definitely a shortage of quality used boats for sale in the marketplace, and we’re seeing an increase in co-brokerage activity because our colleagues simply don’t have the inventory,” said Fred Brown, Brewer’s top salesman in 2016.

Brewer Yacht Sales also reported listing 34 powerboats and sailboats in the last 30 days. Eleven full-time Brewer brokers work in offices at 10 Brewer marinas.
