Buy With Ordovic

When you find a boat you want to buy initial negotiations are conducted verbally with the seller through Ordovic until terms are agreed. At that point a Sale and Purchase Agreement is prepared for signature by both parties, This is a contract detailing all conditions and obligations and payment of a 10% deposit is liable to secure the boat, subject to contract. The deposit is held in a BMF Approved client account.


Typically a yacht purchase is subject to professional survey and often sea-trial, both of which will be carried out in accordance with the terms of the written contract under the supervision of Ordovic Boat Brokerage.

It is important that the surveyor is independent of Ordovic to retain our impartiality. However if you do not already have your own surveyor, we are able to provide contact details for a selection of local qualified professionals and the Yacht Designers & Surveyors Association , which is the professional trade body.
