Pre Owned Boats in Cannes and the French Riviera

12 February 2016

At Allied Yachting you will find updated listings of hundreds of pre owned boats in Cannes and the French Riviera. Hence, there is a good chance that we already have your ideal yacht. If you are looking for something different or unique, you can commission us to find it for you. After an initial meeting to discuss your wishes and needs, we will begin the extensive search. We get in touch with all our contacts to assess the range on offer on the market in your preferred size and category.

When we find the used yacht that suits you, we will do our best to find out as much as possible. For example, we determine its origin and try to uncover as much history as possible. We can arrange a survey for you, in order to obtain extra certainty on the boat’s condition. Furthermore, rest assured we will support you during price negotiations to obtain a deal, after which, we will establish the sales contract and every other conceivable financial, legal or tax issue.

Used yachts come to the Riviera from all over Europe and sometimes sail under “exotic” flags or registrations. That is why it is important to study the history and to check the official registers. As a licensed broker, Allied Yachting has online access to these registers, which allows us to verify all the important details. For example, we can determine the tax status of the ship and see if it is serving as collateral in any respect.
