Everything about yachts speaks luxury, and so before you decide to go into yacht retail, make sure you have a ready market of boat lovers and all the relevant licenses to do so. Everything else comes easy: you can quickly set up a Shopify store by choosing a theme, uploading high-definition photos that take potential buyers on tour inside your boats, and start selling right away.
Shopify allows you the luxury of a hosted online store tailor-made to appeal to your audience. Plus, Shopify lets you access the third-party platforms and givs you the ability to tap into your following via its social media marketplace integration.

Yes, selling yachts is profitable. A good deal on a single yacht can make you a very sizeable profit, even as a middleman. Boats don't come cheap, starting anywhere from $200,000 to as high as several million dollars for high-performance superyachts. So meet the right buyer and you can turn in an excellent profit.
Pricing your yacht will depend on its size, type, condition, and whether you'll be doing some restoration before reselling. Once that's out of the way, delivery costs should be the next thing you consider, especially for buyers out of your region. The best practice for pricing yachts is to analyze your competitors and calculate your costs using Shopify’s free profit margin calculator.
The kinds of yachts that sell the best include sailing yachts, motor yachts, fishing yachts, and classic yachts. Superyachts with every luxury feature on a water vessel are popular and the most expensive.
