Due Diligence

The next step is Due Diligence and Conditional Acceptance from the buyer, where it is the seller’s responsibility to perform and the buyer’s option to accept the yacht for purchase. This includes sea trials, engine, mechanical, electrical, and safety inspections of the yacht.

Yacht Acceptance

Upon completion of due diligence, a list of deficiencies will be reviewed. Some will be acceptable while others will require the seller to repair or make a concession. This is called the Conditional Acceptance which is submitted by the buyer prior to closing.
