THE MARKETING STRATEGY

Using specialist know-how, modern communications strategies and technologies such as the internet, as well as the talents of state-of-the-art advertising consultancies, we provide a level of marketing penetration and effectiveness unparalleled in our industry.

Unlike some of our major overseas competitors, we dont simply rely on one single database of potential buyers. Instead we have the capacity to link together, via the worldwide web, our databases of over thousands of companies in most Industry Sectors and other brokerages from around the world, resulting in an comprehensive and extremely powerful information base. Our Internet websites are used as a 24 hour selling device from which potential customers can download terms and conditions, full technical specifications and colour images of vessels and other relevant details.

Just as importantly we view the usage of industry media on a project by project basis. To this end our advertising agency creates powerful, eye-catching advertisements that successfully generate response after response from the right people, right around the globe. All of this is in addition to regular verbal and face to face communication with buyers and industry contacts.

 

SALE AND PURCHASE

Shipping is a truly global market. As well as our sales in the region, many of the transactions we have made have been sales of vessels owned and operated outside our immediate market area, all to international buyers. We have sold vessels to buyers from most maritime nations.

"IT IS CONSIDERED THAT THE WIDE COVERAGE GIVEN THIS TENDER HAS ATTRACTED SUFFICIENT INTEREST BOTH FROM LOCAL AND OVERSEAS PARTIES TO PRODUCE, WE BELIEVE, THE BEST POSSIBLE RESULT AT THIS PARTICULAR TIME. BUYING OR SELLING& SEABOATS REPRESENTS THE LOCAL AND OFFSHORE MARKET, NO JOB IS TOO BIG OR TOO SMALL"

"AFTER I WAS PERSUADED ON THESE MATTERS, THE SALE WENT AHEAD WITH MR GEOFF FRASER HANDLING THE TRANSACTION ON BEHALF OF THE REGISTRAR. I CAN CONFIRM THAT MY CLIENTS WERE ABSOLUTELY DELIGHTED WITH THE OUTCOME OF THE SALE AND WITH THE WORK CARRIED OUT BY MR FRASER. THE SALE PRICE OF THE VESSEL WAS ALMOST TWICE AS HIGH AS MY CLIENT HAD ANTICIPATED FROM THE APPRAISEMENT VALUE. IN SHORT, AFTER THE INITIAL DOUBTS, MY CLIENT AND I WERE EXTREMELY SATISFIED WITH THE PROFESSIONAL WAY IN WHICH THEY HANDLED THE SALE ON BEHALF OF THE REGISTRAR"
