Fraser reveals record superyacht sales continue
Superyacht sales continue to soar and smash previous records, as shown in exclusive data and insights from global brokerage house Fraser.
A total of 329 pre-owned superyachts were sold from January to May, significantly outperforming every previous year since 2009, Fraser revealed in its bimonthly contribution to Yacht Style.
Comparing the first five months of each year, pre-owned sales were up 141 per cent on 2020 and 129 per cent on the average for the last 12 years.
In addition, the total value of pre-owned sales was up 89 per cent on 2020 and 88 per cent on the 12-year average.
Raphael Sauleau, CEO of Fraser, said: “If last year saw a seismic shift in global demand for the ultimate safe escape to sea on board a yacht, that demand is growing stronger and faster than ever this year.”
As shown in the ‘By Size Segment’ graph, there was a particular surge in the 24-40m segment as more first-time buyers continued to discover the benefits of yachting.
“Fraser is proud to represent more sellers than any other provider this year, as well as securing the highest number of internal deals,” Sauleau added.
In its bimonthly contribution to Yacht Style, Fraser says the global market’s record-breaking superyacht sales show how the real rewards of yachting have been highlighted during the pandemic.
