"Simon inspected 5 yachts before we decided on Noni. We didn't even come and see the yacht before completion and trusted Simon's advice. It was great to see the boat arrive along with the new Captain."

LIVE THE DREAM - LET ICONOVISTA TAKE THE STRAIN
Our commitment: we are not here to "sell you a yacht." We work for you and will ensure your yacht is fully set up to go and then stay by your side with the free provision of yacht management services and access to our bespoke YachtMan software
New or Used?
Looking for new construction or immediate access to an available boat for sale? We have extensive experience with the world's leading shipyards and can guide you through the new construction process. If you prefer not to wait, we have direct access to not only the global fleet of yachts for sale, but also many yachts which are not publicly on the market
Our first step is to fully understand your needs and experience. We then undertake a global search to make a shortlist of possible yachts which are presented to you
We will visit and inspect your preferred yachts from the shortlist. This often leads to yachts immediately being removed from the list (due to problems) without you having to waste your time with an initial visit. We can of course arrange for your to see 5-6 yachts in 1 day to give you an initial idea to enable you to understand the options
Can I Afford It? How Much Will It Cost To Operate?
A common mistake for a yacht buyer is to underestimate the annual operating cost. Once we have a target yacht in mind, we can produce a draft operating & maintenance budget so you are fully aware of your commitments. This later is incorporated into our YachtMan yacht management software to give you live budget vs actual spend data
Time To Negotiate
Our interests are aligned to yours and we use our experience of negotiating the acquisitions of hundreds of yachts to ensure we achieve the right price and do not over pay
We use international standard yacht sale & purchase agreements to ensure that you are fully protected throughout the process. At this stage we would often also recommend the use of a qualified marine lawyer
Sea Trial & Survey
Our team will provide a shortlist of qualified surveyors to assess the condition of the yacht. Our team will be present throughout a sea trial and survey to best understand the real condition of the yacht and avoid potential pitfalls. There is no need for you to be there, we can provide a live video link at the appropriate time
Post Completion & Getting Ready To Cruise
Prior to the completion of the purchase, we will begin preparations to get you cruising as quickly as possible. This includes hiring the crew, finding a place to keep the yacht, insurance and any maintenance issues
Ongoing Management & Support
Any yacht purchased through Iconovista comes with 1 years' yacht management. This gives you peace of mind, takes away the stress and puts you in control with live data via our YachtMan yacht management portal. At the end of the year, we can discuss how best to run the yacht and you decide if you wish to retain our services. Read more about our Yacht Management Services
