Broker’s Top Picks: Sailing yachts for sale

Tim Carbury reveals the best sailing yachts on the sales market at the moment.

Accounting for just six per cent of the 2024 global order book, sailing yachts are a small segment of the overall superyacht market. In recent years, the number of active sailing yacht builders has decreased and the cost of new build projects has increased, with more interest in sailing yachts on the used sales market. Here, Sales Broker Tim Carbury reveals the best sailing yachts available for purchase right now.
