According to Google analytics we receive an average of 3.424 sessions (visits) a day to our site, making it by far the most visited of any brokerage.

We register 10 new buying clients a day and the database holds 9.200 clients looking for a yacht. At De Valk we call this Search Profile technology. Everyday a match is made between profiles and yachts and as a result clients are emailed the yacht details automatically.

Yacht details are exported automatically to over 50 yachting sites.

De Valk newsletters go out to 23.000 clients (filtered email addresses).

We make significant investments in Search Engine Optimalisation (SEO). Advertise using Google adwords and remarketing.

We believe in a strong social media presence and actively maintain Facebook, Linkedin, Google+ and Twitter accounts.

In short, we reach a lot of potential buyers and sellers, substantially more than our competitors.

The internet site, social media, brochures, business cards, advertising are all developed and updated continuously by De Valk.

Knowledge base

You will be able to access the extensive legal and industry knowledge we have built up over 60 years. We will provide you with approved sales documents and contracts and procedures to ensure that sales are closed efficiently and effectively. All sales will make use of our Escrow account giving buyers and sellers peace of mind.

You will be able to discuss deals, pricing, tactics, and our passion, yachting, just for fun, with all the other De Valk yacht brokers. You will be able to follow inhouse training.

We work on a commission basis only which ensures that we all have the same goal, which is to sell as many yachts as possible.
