ORLANDO, FL – August 26, 2013 – YachtCloser is delighted to announce that United Yachts Sales LLC has selected its web-based contract management system to make the process of buying and selling a yacht faster, easier and more efficient for its brokers and their clients. The largest independent yacht brokerage firm in America, with more than 120 yacht brokers located in 16 U.S. states and Canada, United Yacht Sales closes over 500 transactions annually valued at approximately $80-plus million.
“Implementing YachtCloser was the single most important program we have adopted in 2013,” said Roger Herd, United Yacht Sales Director of Marketing and Sales. “In a high-volume company such as United, any program that streamlines the closing process and helps eliminate potential mistakes is a huge advantage. As a broker, having the ability to initiate and send documents for signature without returning to the office is a game-changer.
YachtCloser’s sophisticated yet easy-to-use online application enables United Yacht Sales brokers to have contracts signed and returned instantly by clients in other parts of the country or the world, letting them close deals without ever having to leave the dock.
“YachtCloser is one of the best advancements in technology to help international yacht brokers,” said Mark Andries of United Yacht Sales California. “In a recent deal, the seller was in Asia and the buyer was in Europe. YachtCloser made it easy for the client to sign the documents without having to print them, sign them, and fax or scan. It’s also nice knowing when [the client] signs the documents [by] having a confirmation sent to your mobile.”
YachtCloser also saves brokers and clients time over the course of the deal, reported Bill Kocis of United Yacht Sales New Jersey. “It’s nice that once you put in information, it follows to other documents and saves on retyping information over again,” he said. “It also stores information that can be useful over the course of time selling the boat.”
