Here in Cyprus we asked George Christofides ACA from Citius Trust Ltd if he could explain why it makes sense to register a yacht in Cyprus and he kindly provided us with the following.
These days Boatshed is one of the largest, most successful international yacht brokerages in the world, specialising in the sale and purchase of second-hand sail and motor boats. The business has grown into a major international business and a well-known cornerstone of the yacht brokerage industry in the UK and overseas from its early begins in Milford Haven Marina 15 years ago.
Boatshed’s unique Preferred Partners Scheme connects boat buyers with marine suppliers and service providers, internationally, nationally across the UK and locally. When buying a used boat from Boatshed, many of our buyers require equipment, accessories, sails, insurance, transportation, berthing facilities, upgrades and other essential products and services associated with boat ownership, maintenance, cruising and racing. Often, these are required immediately upon purchase of the boat, or soon thereafter, and are regarded by our customers as part and parcel of buying and equipping their ‘new’ boat.
Boatshed is one of the largest international yacht brokerages in the world, specialising in the sale and purchase of second-hand sail and motor boats. The original business, set up in Milford Haven Marina some 15 years ago, by seasoned sailors Neil and Mandy Chapman, after years of adventures offshore, has grown into a major international business and is a cornerstone of the yacht brokerage industry in the UK and overseas.
We are always told that Boatshed's website and online platform for the sale of boats is 'the best in the industry', but our technical engineers are always trying to improve it. We have added new features to our website and boat search system to make these even easier and quicker for boat buyers and boat sellers to use.
Boatbid.com is an online auction site for used boats. Set a reserve, enter your boat into an auction and our clever algorithms will highlight potentially interested buyers from millions of boat viewings our systems collect and then match these buyers to your boat. Sellers can be confident as sales are still handled by trained and experienced brokers, and boats are still inspected and surveyed, with all the usual contractual requirement, giving buyers peace of mind.
An important part of what we do at Boatshed is help our owners’ boats stand out from the crowd and attract serious interest in a busy, often crowded marketplace. The strength of our website and IT platform, and the attention and importance our brokers place upon extensively photographing and detailing every aspect of a boat for sale, is a key part of that philosophy, but we are always devising new ways to support this effort.
I’m still not sure about how facebook or twitter make a difference but apparently it’s a must for any business to have a facebook page, so the good news is that Cyprus now has one, www.facebook.com/boatshedcyprus. I don’t understand why, but apparently I have to get as many people as possible to ‘like’ the page. To do that you have to pay it a visit then you can decide whether you like it or not and when you do you I think you can also share it! So, if you have a facebook page, please go to https://www.facebook.com/boatshedcyprus and like it, that way i will then be able to like you as well. If you don’t have a facebook page then that’s a shame because it would seem that I can’t like you without one, but you should still visit mine to see what you are missing. The great news is that now I am up to speed with Facebook it’s a step closer to get me started Twittering so I can get some other Twits contacting me! I have added the Facebook logo to www.Boatshedcyprus.com so it’s easy to go to facebookCyprus direct from the website, so please visit & like the page. Apparently it’s important that the page is liked and not just one of the photographs, so your help would be greatly appreciated.
