Home Hunts Launch Free Superyacht Finding Service
HOME HUNTS, leading luxury property search specialist is today announcing a new partnership with Enigma Yachts in order to launch a free superyacht finding service, HH Yachting for its wealthy international luxury home seekers. The launch coincides with the Monaco Yacht Show in Port Hercules on 23rd-26th September where 121 super yachts will be afloat and 33,000 participants expected.
HH Yachting will echo the set-up of the successful property finding side of the business. The Home Hunts Yachting team are dedicated buyers agents for the yachting industry who are able to provide a completely independent and unbiased service. It is important to note that the super yacht industry is very specialised and there are only 9,300 superyachts in the world currently (a superyacht has to be a minimum of 24 metres in length), therefore, using a specialist agent with an established network in the yachting industry is invaluable. They can efficiently search the entire market worldwide to find the exact superyacht to suit any taste, lifestyle or budget.
Tim Swannie, Director of Home Hunts says: “The total sales value of the superyacht market from January to June this year (2015) was €1.35bn and we have found that many home buyers, particularly in the south of France also opt to buy a yacht. This enables them to access the many beautiful quieter little bays along the French Riviera or complete their dream lifestyle amongst the glamorous jet set. In reverse, wealthy yacht owners often feast their eyes on some of the most exclusive homes from the sea which spurs their appetite for ownership. Therefore it is a natural step for us to launch HH Yachting.
”This market is not completely new to us as many of our clients are yacht owners and we have already helped a number of them over the years to purchase yachts and moorings in different locations. Like buying a property, buying a yacht is a big decision! It is important to have an expert to assist through the process, to offer advice and support and to negotiate the best possible deal for the buyer.”
