If you can afford a yacht, we supposeanytime is a good time to buy! But for cognoscenti autumn is prime buying season. Why? Yacht dealers often have great deals on in the fall; and with showroom traffic winding down, there’s more of a willingness to negotiate on prices. Selling or trading a boat now also allows owners to avoid the costs of winter storage and winterizing engines and onboard water systems. It’s also a good time to buy a UK yacht since the value of the pound is down post Brexit vote. So with that in mind, we checked in with the team atYachtWorld, which maintains the largest database of brokerage boats for sale (more than 110,000 listings) from over 2,900 yacht brokers and 70 manufacturers worldwide. Here we look at five boats on the market now with particularly snazzy interiors.

"I've worked with a number of agents and Steve is by far the best. His skills as an agent far exceeded those of the agents I've worked with in the past. He is professional, reliable, honest, knowledgeable, responsive, and a pleasure to work with. Steve is an example of going above and beyond. He helped me steer clear of a couple problematic properties and advocated on my behalf every step of the process. Since I left town soon after I saw the property, the entire process from offering to closing was done while I was remote. Steve promptly resolved issues that came up. This included figuring out a loan issue, taking multiple trips to thoroughly inspect the property, and repairing an item that the seller failed to disclose. I'm grateful to have had Steve as my agent and definitely want to work with him again in the future."
