Classic Boat: how to make the value gained perceived

We selected 300 Classic Boats, screened by our experts according to criteria of innovation, quality, originality, sail characteristics and design. Be careful, however, not all boats benefit from historical revaluation. Among the current 300, however, there is no need to worry: there are of every size, from 6 to over 24 meters, and for every pocket, with price ranges starting from a few thousand euros, as you can check for yourself by opening the site page(HERE). In the table, in fact, we have compared the current market values of used cars (minimum/max) with the revalued values of “Historical Value” (minimum/medium/max) .

You will quickly realize that the historical value of the boats entered gives at least 15 percent more than the used market price. Provided, of course, that the boat has not been distorted from the original, while constant technological upgrading over the years is a rewarding factor. Visit the section HERE and you will find not only the rating but also photos and text of each boat where it is explained why that particular model has become a “Classic Boat by Giornale della Vela.”

Now, however, let us come to the point. How to go about enhancing the value of a used boat more than 25 years old? How to make her perceive the value that her status would allow her to achieve? Very simple.

This is where the service that Il Giornale della Vela concretely makes available to those who want to concretely take advantage of the benefits of “Classic Boat by Giornale della Vela” certification comes into play. There are three steps that need to be taken:


The initial step is for the Classic Boat to be viewed and verified by an experienced certified appraiser “by Journal of Sailing.” After assessing the condition of the boat, he is able to complete an appraisal form and certify the historical value of the boat. In each boat’s sheet you will find the contact information of our top appraisers for reference.


The second and very important step is to insure the boat at a fair value, which incorporates the value assigned by the appraiser who also uses the “Classic boat of historical value by Giornale della Vela” quote as a parameter, using leading insurance companies. The insurance broker is selected by the Journal of Sailing and you can find the contact
in the files of each boat


The third eventual step is: do you want to buy or sell a “Classic boat by Giornale della Vela”? We have selected one of the largest brokers (
contact in the boat tabs
) who can search the market for available boats when buying or offering a Classic Boat for sale, looking for a reliable buyer.

The process is very simple, and for each of the three steps, you can act directly from the boat’s tab, whether it is your own, or the one you would like to purchase.
