Buying Overseas | Yacht Finders Global: New Zealand's leading boat brokerage

Buying a boat offshore, new or used, opens up the opportunity for you, the buyer, to experience other boating locations around the world and sail into your own sunset.

Sail Your Boat Home

The cost of shipping presents a great emotive bargaining opportunity - you could transfer that expense to a Holiday Fund and enjoy your boat in locations you may never otherwise get to.

  • Buying in Europe -Take the time to explore the cultures and history of the Mediterranean. By the time you've finished cruising the Mediterranean you'll have the experience and confidence to make the passage across the Atlantic to the Caribbean. From there it's a hop skip and jump to Panama, through the canal and then follow the trade winds across the Pacific; Tahiti, Tonga, Fiji, Vanuatu, Noumea and onwards.
  • Buying in the Caribbean - Hundreds of tropical sun drenched islands, palm trees and golden beaches all within the footprint that makes up one of the world’s most idyllic island clusters. When you've soaked up all the sun and turquoise anchorages you can handle, trade winds will call you across the Pacific to another galaxy of pristine islands and cultures.
  • Buying in the USA - East Coast, West Coast, the opportunities are endless. East Coast departures present all of the Caribbean opportunities. West Coast sailings present Hawaii downwind out to the west, or south to Mexico, the Baja Peninsula, the playground of Cabo San Lucas and, as Jacques Cousteau called it, "into the greatest ocean zoo on the planet", the Sea of Cortez. And then catching the trade winds across the Pacific.

At Yachtfinders Global we not only find the perfect boat for you - anywhere in the world - we can advise and assist with delivery options.

Tourist Delivery with you at the helm is a real option and an experience many of our clients choose to take advantage of.
