November 26, 2014 – Gulf Craft, one of the world’s top 10 superyacht-building shipyards, has launched a new online portal to list yachts and boats for resale.
The new listings webpage http://preowned.gulfcraftinc.com/boats/ builds on Gulf Craft’s 360-degree service portfolio. The company offers to buy back its own boats and yachts from owners of Gulf Craft products looking to trade-in and trade-up. The pre-owned craft are then listed online for purchase by other interested buyers. The webpage offers buyers the ability to tailor their searches by model, brand, year of delivery and location as well as send purchase queries to the Gulf Craft team.
“Offering an active trade-in policy benefits all parties involved, giving existing owners a chance to upgrade while offering other buyers great value on available pre-owned craft,” says Erwin Bamps, Chief Executive Officer, Gulf Craft. “We believe in the ‘customers for life’ approach and are keen to support our client base every step of the way. The launch of the listing web page formalizes a service we have offered our customers for some time now and is one that has received a very positive response.”
As part of the policy of selling used craft, Gulf Craft will provide factory warranty of up to 6 months making the vessels ‘certified pre-owned yachts and boats’.
“Launching this service underscores the confidence we have in our product and the fact that our high quality yachts and boats retain their value over the long-term. The service strengthens the relationship within the purchase cycle with our existing customers. By the same measure, by assisting buyers in obtaining high quality, certified pre-owned boats we extend our customer base even further,” added Bamps.
The announcement comes just ahead of the Dubai Pre-owned Boat Show 2014 which will take place from November 27th to 29th at Dubai Creek Marina. Last year’s event attracted more than 5,000 visitors.
