Nicolle Associates launch an innovative, ‘state of the art’, new service for yacht vendors and purchasers.

Finding a pre-owned boat from the thousands listed by brokers around the world just became a whole lot easier for potential buyers who register with a new service launched by respected international yacht brokers Nicolle Associates. Their ‘FindaBoat’ facility, at, has a feature believed to be unique among European yacht brokers; the ability to advise a potential purchaser instantly, and automatically, when a boat fitting the description of their ideal vessel is added to the database, or when the price of an existing boat is changed.

Most brokers have a search capability on their websites but the buyer has to fill it in each time they want the latest listing of boats that fit their requirements. Apart from being time consuming, unless it is done very regularly, missing the boat of their dreams becomes a distinct possibility, especially if it is a good value popular model. All this becomes a thing of the past with ‘Findaboat’; fill in the details just once and each time a yacht fitting the description is added to the database the client is emailed immediately about the new prospect.

Users of ‘Findaboat’ will be able to have as many searches running at a time as they need so, if they have not one, but a shortlist of vessels which would suit their requirements, they will be able to set up a search for each of them. ‘Findaboats’ range is extensive so whatever the purchaser may be looking for, from tenders, motor or sailing yachts, right up to superyachts, it will prove an invaluable tool.

With hundreds of new yachts added to the database every week the advantages for both buyer and seller are obvious. The vendor’s information is transmitted immediately to potential buyers and does not have to wait until it is ‘found’! The potential purchaser gets immediate notice that a possible contender for their ‘new’ yacht has just come on the market.

‘Findaboat’ is another innovative service from Nicolle Associates. Unlike other portals that offer boats from many yacht brokers, Findaboat is staffed by fully trained professional brokers able to sell any of the boats they offer without directing potential purchasers on to another broker. Adrian Nicolle the firm’s founder believes that a complete service for his clients should take them from initial enquiry, and carry on into ownership and beyond. For this reason, apart from offering the usual advice on finance and insurance the company can assist with crewing for larger yachts and for racing boats.
