The Berthon Market Report 2024

01 May 2024

Welcome to the 2024 Berthon Market Report, an annual publication with articles from the Berthon Sales Group team with their take on the sales market in their segment of the market in 2023 and into 2024. You can read about the market for your yacht or potential yacht purchase by the Berthon Broker that works in that part of the market every day. Our Berthon sales offices across two continents - the UK, Sweden, Spain and the USA as well as our Service and Refit Team in Mallorca, bring you their Flightdeck reports.

We also have informative articles from expert guest writers covering subjects that are current in today’s market ranging from the latest news on VAT to electric drive from yacht designer Marko Pas, to bluewater rallies and much else.

This year the Market Report’s chessboard theme delivers our Checkmate pages where we present a selection of the inspirational sailors and technical innovations that we feel are seriously cool. 

We also write about what is happening within the yachting industry and yacht sales currently, with articles about the skills gap in our industry, emerging trends in yacht ownership and the challenges for yacht brokers for the year ahead. The Berthon Forecast, exactly that.

For the first time, this year the Market Report has gone digital with a Market Report Collection, featuring a selection of yachts, including motor yachts, cruising yachts, and performance yachts, both new and preowned. Here you will find imagery, video footage, and granular information about a selection of the Berthon fleet.

We invite you to dive in and we hope that you find it an informative, but above all a fun read.
