Ancasta.com is your window to the world’s boat-buying marketplace. Ancasta.com shows live data, so as soon as you list your boat for sale with Ancasta, the boat receives its own dedicated page on the website. This includes a photo library with the option of a 360º virtual tour and full specification downloads. The site, which is extremely easy to navigate, also gives buyers the ability to arrange a viewing, make an offer and send general enquiries directly to your broker.
Extensive marketing network
Working with global online partners, Ancasta has extensive resources, including an in-house marketing team to ensure that your boat is represented all over the world and, most importantly, presented to the right audience in the best possible way.
Ancanet is the bespoke CRM software developed by Ancasta over the past 38 years. This sophisticated software is a result of consistent and significant investment and links together all of the brokers, offices, boat listings and registered buyers. Upon agreeing to list your boat for sale, the boat specification is loaded onto the system and is immediately available to all brokers across the network who will offer details of your boat to all potential buyers. Although your boat will be managed by your local broker with one single point of contact, the listing will be promoted by over 40 brokers throughout the Ancasta Network across Europe.
We get to work straight away and don’t stop until we’ve found a buyer.
Within 24 Hrs
Within the first 24 hours, your broker will search Ancasta’s CRM database of qualified buyers from across the network, matching your boat’s criteria with their requirements. A full specification of your boat will be sent to them along with an invitation to arrange an accompanied viewing with your broker.
