It’s Hammer Time! Luxury Yacht Auctions Come To Palma

 In a first for Spain, online auctions of high-end yachts will be coming to our island in the very near future. Having successfully carried out auctions in Northern Europe for the past two years, De Valk Yachts is teaming up with Yacht Bid to offer the same options for yachts lying in the Mediterranean


While auctions are obviously very popular in the art world, they can have a less sophisticated image in the property sector as being a place where buyers are finally found for unsold houses. These yacht auctions definitely belong to the first category, with over 50 luxury motor and sail yachts sold via online Yacht Bid auctions in recent times.


“This is a new and innovative way for people to sell yachts in southern Europe,” explains De Valk’s managing director Mattijs van Baalen. “It is a tried and tested formula that allows well maintained high-end boats to reach a broader market via the Internet and achieve a good price that reflects their intrinsic value. If you’re looking for a different way to sell your yacht, these auctions may well be the answer you are looking for.”
