United Yacht Sales LLC selected YachtCloser’s web-based contract management system in an effort to make the process of buying and selling a yacht faster and easier for brokers and clients.
The largest independent yacht brokerage firm in America, with more than 120 yacht brokers in 16 U.S. states and Canada, United Yacht Sales closes more than 500 transactions annually valued at more than $80 million.
“Implementing YachtCloser was the single most important program we have adopted in 2013,” United Yacht Sales marketing and sales director Roger Herd said in a statement. “In a high-volume company such as United, any program that streamlines the closing process and helps eliminate potential mistakes is a huge advantage. As a broker, having the ability to initiate and send documents for signature without returning to the office is a game-changer.”
“YachtCloser is one of the best advancements in technology to help international yacht brokers,” Mark Andries of United Yacht Sales California said in a statement. “In a recent deal the seller was in Asia and the buyer was in Europe. YachtCloser made it easy for the client to sign the documents without having to print them, sign them, and fax or scan. It’s also nice knowing when [the client] signs the documents [by] having a confirmation sent to your mobile.”
Founded in early 2012, YachtCloser manages more than $2 billion in active boat and yacht contracts nationwide.
