Yacht brokerage de Maas

Buying a motorboat

When you buy a powerboat, you expect security and expertise. Jachtmakelaardij de Maas has this expertise in abundance. To underscore this, your yacht broker, Ricardo Bosma, is E.M.C.I. certified and affiliated with the N.B.M.S.

Real sales prices for motorboats

It is of great importance that we work with market-based sales prices, of which we are very knowledgeable due to extensive knowledge and experience. We are also not afraid to ask for feedback from colleagues. Our setup is such that, in the event that you would like to sell again some time after purchasing a powerboat from us, we aim for at least a similar return.

You want to buy a powerboat?

You have tied the knot and are going to buy a powerboat. A reliable knowledgeable yacht broker is then exactly what you need. In our database are about 40 to 50 well-maintained motorboats for sale, including classic boats and sailing houseboats to which we have for sale. All vessels are carefully documented included in clear presentations, with complete descriptions of equipment and inventory. The vast majority of these are in our own sales marina, so that you, the buyer, can view the vessels present at your leisure.

Do you have any questions or are you curious what we can do for you? Please contact us without any obligation.

Trade-in, financing on purchase of motorboat

We also mediate any trade-in or financing for the purchase of a powerboat. So that your dream is within reach sooner. Through our contacts with several reputable financing institutions, we almost always find a suitable solution.

Inspection before purchasing a powerboat

Before you finally buy a powerboat, we always recommend that you have the vessel inspected. This can be done by means of a trial run subsequent to the lifting of the ship. This under the guidance of an expert of your choice.


We always use asking prices (with the exception of New Construction). Depending on delivery requirements, negotiation is possible. A reasonable bid is always passed on to the seller. If both parties agree on the price, you eventually become the owner of the vessel without any additional costs (note! Expert fees and land registry costs are often borne by the buyer, selling costs are borne by the seller). All necessary documents, such as the purchase contract, financing, inspection, as well as any land registry registration, mortgage, export or VAT document can be taken care of for you. You have also come to the right place for insurance. So you can buy a boat or motorboat with a relaxed feeling. Upon receipt of the entire sale price, we will proceed with delivery. Since buyers appreciate it when the old owner explains and describes all the “ins & outs” of your new acquisition, this episode often happens with the broker and the old owner. If time is short, it is even possible to have the ship delivered to your home port, at a reasonable cost.
