Never before has there been more demand for used boats for sale of every shape and size than now. As people have responded to restrictions in international travel, the number of UK used boats for sale has struggled to satisfy public demand. And Europe’s supply of luxury yachts has exhibited a broadly similar picture. Used boats are now in short supply but finding the right yacht can still be done.
Used boats for sale and luxury yachts
Traditionally, the astute boat buyer might have looked to source a used yacht toward the end of the year, however the current scale of demand for luxury used yachts is being seen year-round.
High-spec boats, for instance, where the original owner has chosen to upgrade his yachting experience with non-standard options, equipment and accessories, can represent fantastic value for money. Yes, they often fetch higher prices but the extra outlay is nothing like the investment that would have been required when new.

Here at Princess Motor Yacht Sales, we operate the largest dealer and distributor network of luxury Princess yachts in the world. We have sales hubs, service centres and offices throughout the UK and Europe. Our highly experienced in-house brokers are very well placed to help. And if you want to take your used boat purchase to the next level, a ‘Princess Approved’ pre-owned craft is also a very tempting option…
Our fastidious approval process encompasses a certified independent yacht survey and sea trial, alongside a factory-approved 280-point checklist. That includes engine and generator services, new antifoul and anodes and a thorough interior and exterior valet.
It also includes the servicing and certification of the fire systems, an up-to-date gas safety check, a full tank of fuel and a complete technical handover from one of our trained engineers, covering on-board systems, safety equipment and operation of the boat.
