Closing up a sale and purchase transaction on a yacht can be strewn with difficulty. At Fichte & Co, we have years of experience and are able to assist you in all the phases of this process, minimising the risks.

Whether you are buying or selling a yacht, we can draft and arrange copies of all contracts, documents and forms for each party and maintain a complete set for records, and in addition help you making sure that:

  • Sales or use taxes have been examined to see if they apply
  • An export permit is received, if required
  • All signatures are duly notarised for filing
  • Liaise with the other party’s lawyer in reviewing and approving the documentation.

In addition, we assist sellers by making sure that:

  • The buyer has designated a person to inspect and physically accept the delivery of the vessel
  • An inventory of goods, equipment and parts to be transferred with the yacht has been reviewed by the buyer and accepted in writing.

If you’re buying a yacht instead, we assist in making sure that:

  • There is a clear title on the vessel and obtain a certificate from the authority
  • The Bill of Sale is in proper form and duly notarised
  • You have a chance to complete all inspections and accept the yacht only after this
  • All your financing arrangements (if any) are in order and funds are ready to transfer
