The Best Sales Training in The Boating Business?

“Last week we had a Sales Seminar. We had over 40 people attending and the overall reaction was ‘Fantastic’. Vincent Finetti was a home run. He’s definitely the best sales trainer in our business.”

I’ve Got More Listings Than Any Of The 50 Brokers In Our Company!

“I wanted to report that I will have 29 listings online soon. I’ve got 25 online now. I feel it’s because I’ve been following your advice. Not one strategy has brought the listings but a combination of using all your techniques has helped. I’ve got more listings than anyone else in our company now and that’s almost 50 brokers. 27’ to 73’. I wanted to thank you for your continued help.”

Cory Webster

Yacht Broker, Galati Yacht Sales

Sold 7 Boats & Got 4 New Listings Under Lockdown!

“I recently completed the course. I implemented an email strategy that came up in the first call. I sent an email to my list (of just over 5,000) and received over 400 replies. So far (4 weeks later) I have sold 7 boats and secured 4 new listings, far surpassing what I did in the same period last year. And all this has been achieved under lockdown. I full recommend the Yacht Sales Academy and encourage you to implement the strategies shared. I also found the mastermind aspect & connections built with other brokers to be very useful.”

I want to let you know that I have sold 6 boats in the last 30 days and have another one closing next week and a survey tomorrow! As well, I have 3 boats under contract and working on some more.

What Brokers Are Saying

About The Yacht Sales Academy

"I just wanted to thank you again for the most recent training. It was excellent. I found your insights into the psychology of clients, when it comes to convincing them to list their boats at the right price, to be invaluable. The detailed 'to do' list and step-by-step instruction on how to implement your system is also extremely helpful. Easily the best value training that I’ve undertaken in a long time (and I sign up for a lot of courses!)"

Shaw Newman
Delta Boat Sales
"I’ve been following Vincent for a while and have been consistently impressed by his marketing and boat sales insights. I would consider myself a fairly successful boat broker, but I’m always keen to develop my skills and my business. I decided to reach out to Vincent for his advice on how to increase the quantity and value of the boat listings that I am working on.

On our coaching session it became apparent that he speaks from experience when it comes to listing and selling high end yachts. He is generous with his time and the information that he provides. I picked up lots of actionable techniques and strategies that I’m confident will lead to increased listings and sales for my business in the coming months.

No matter what stage you are at in your career as a broker, Vincent will be able to provide you with highly valuable and up-to-date information and strategies to allow you to improve your sales results."

Joe Hemberger
General Sales Manager at Chicago Yacht Works
"Hi Vincent, The webinar was great. It has me pumped to start applying and get more results. The timing is perfect for me because our next big boat show is in less than a month. It will have me trained up with the latest info just in time to make some big sales."
Steven McPherson
Manager at Skull Creek Boathouse
"I also had a listing appointment with a client immediately following the training and was able to get them to list their boat at the correct price right from the start. They said, 'There was no way we would have sold our boat for your suggested asking price let alone list it at this price, but your listing presentation made it clear that this was the right thing to do.'

There is no fluff; there is no pressure to sign up for additional training, there is just useful actionable information that will immediately improve the quality of the service you provide."
