The December 2021 issue of Yachting World Magazine features a ‘Meet The Broker’ article on Grabau International’s MD – Alex Grabau.
Grabau International is…. “an international brokerage house operating worldwide from Lymington headquarters and additional offices in London, Scotland, Finland, Sweden, Italy, the Balearics and mainland Spain. Working in both the sailing and motoryacht markets, we are perhaps most well-known for our comprehensive portfolio of bluewater and performance sailing yacht listings, bolstered by our close working relationships with marques such as Hylas Yachts, Italia Yachts, Luca Brenta Yachts, Vismara Marine Concepts, and Ocean Explorer Catamarans. Our team of professional brokers are passionate and experienced sailors, sharing an affinity with all sectors of the sailing yacht world.”
Our specialism is… “selling yachts (properly!). We are fortunate to work in a unique environment filled with beautiful boats and wonderful people. However, yacht brokerage is a professional and often highly complicated business requiring a consistently high level of technical knowledge, patience, and diplomacy, regardless of the yacht type, size, price and location.”
Yacht owners choose Grabau International because… “we are light on our feet and ready to react. As a team of partners rather than employees, we cultivate an environment of motivation and close attention to detail. Yacht brokerage is now a global business, with boats, buyers, and sellers spread far and wide, so we are not tied to specific locations, marinas or boatyards. We invest heavily in listings-driven marketing through leading international digital and print platforms such as Yachting World. This allows us to offer a market-leading service at competitive rates while maintaining the Grabau International professional seven-day-a-week personal service our clients expect. Our brokerage services, irrespective of geographic location, are also carried out following the UK’s ABYA codes of practice using ABYA Sale & Purchase agreements and UK-based separated client accounts.”
Favourite yacht of all time? “They are all fantastic. That’s the beauty of our world. Very few people build bad boats, and there is something out there for everyone. If it feels right and looks right to you, invariably it will be right – for you. For me, I’d perhaps pick the Spirit Yachts 60DH Spirit of Rani. Why? Just look at her! British design and boatbuilding at its very best.”
