Our service

Optimise outcomes by selling or buying through CB Selections

To achieve the best outcome for both seller and buyer we offer a very full range of end-to-end services. At CB Selections we work closely with each client to arrive at the individual match-perfect solution for an eased sale and purchase. It is by best identifying individual client preferences and expectations, we ease the process of selection. We then continue this easing through the entire process, from negotiation and agreement to finished transaction, taking in survey, remediation, financial and legal compliance, and actual delivery if required. All aspects. A turnkey service for your confidence, your peace of mind, your satisfaction.

The multibrand brokerage service that cares for your success

While we advise and act for clients with yachts located worldwide, we also have an increasing number of distant owners returning to our Medemblik base to gain the benefits of our full concierge sales service.

Here in the Netherlands, returning yachts can be refreshed and made ready for best presentation in either our heated 6,300m2 showroom and halls or on our pristine 4,000m2 hard standing that has 40 marina berths alongside for slipping and trials. This preparation for sale may include a simple valeting, polishing and antifouling or, for full optimisation, repair or refit of hull, interior, engineering or rig, all managed and completed onsite in the workshops of MYS, our Contest Group’s own yacht care division. With seller and buyer engaged, we can also assist with full professional services ranging through:

  • Insurance
  • Ship's registration
  • Mortgage supervision
  • Customs and Excise

Then of course there’s delivery and that we help with, too, be it near or far, by truck or ship or under own sail – and for that we’ll even help find you the right crew. When it comes to pre-owned sales, whether Contest, Baltic, Swan, Hallberg-Rassy, Najad, Oyster, Malö or more, think CB Selections.

Whatever the brand, there is no better brokerage service!

Well developed high profile, long reach marketing programme

We have a high profile marketing programme making excellent successful use of all best channels from the major national and international boats shows to the most effective of the many appropriate printed and digital media and brokerage platforms.

We have bases in both Medemblik in the Netherlands, and in Palma at the heart of Mallorca's yachting hub, and work also collaboratively with brokerage partners around the globe. Together we have a constantly updating extensive database of qualified prospective buyers who we keep informed of what's on and coming to market. We know who is buying and who is selling. We are successful match makers.

It is one thing to advertise a boat for sale. It is quite another to achieve a fast and efficient fair sale. There are many steps in successfully transacting a change of yacht ownership. It is not a simple matter. We have the experience, the market intelligence. We are good at this ... and the speed at which our listings change provides good reference.

We are active members and supporters of the Association of Shipbrokers and the HISWA yachtbrokers section

Membership of these organisations ensures all our activities are guided and regulated under strict rules.

Our full, compliant, professional services span: finance, insurance, ships registration, survey and inspections, valuation, supervision of mortgage registration and VAT statements.

As a part of the Contest Group, our waterside offices in Medemblik have pontoon berths, direct access to the IJsselmeer and full yard facilities. This ranges from craning, cleaning, dockside hard standing, indooor heated storage and showroom, to full yacht servicing from valeting to complete refitting. In the warmer Mediterranean waters, our Palma, mallorca base operates under this same governance and also has the equiovalent full yacht servicing and support available. 

At CB Selections we care for your success.

Registered Chambre of Commerce Hoorn, the Netherlands no. 36045709

Our heated indoor sales facility with its deck-level, walkaround access straight onto each boat.

Inside our dedicated, 5,500m2 heated halls, all craft are easily viewed and accessed from surrounding high-level walkways. Valeted, antifouled and tidied of clutter, as well as being beautifully photographed, each yacht displayed is ready for very personal inspection. So, come on in out of the weather and see how fresh pre-owned can be.

With our yacht servicing sister company MYS onsite, we are able to offer the very best refreshed yachts and we are increasingly having owners bring their yachts from the Mediterranean and other zones for this pre-sale service.

Returning sun- and salt-faded glassfibre, tired teak decks and dulled sailing hardware to their former glory saves not only disappointed viewings but speeds and eases sales at higher prices, the buyer pleased at not having to undertake such work. And in this heated indoor sales facility with its deck-level, walkaround access straight onto each boat, there’s simply no better way to show and sell your yacht.

So, welcome to CB Selections, where the focus is on perfect presentation of best in class craft for eased and well informed sale and purchase.

The combination of these factors
