Because the people that work at De Valk share your love of sailing.
This is why all our services are geared to ensuring you enjoy your hobby to the max. We mediate between
buyers and sellers to strike a deal. We have built up a great deal of experience through the sale of thousands of
yachts, and everyone at De Valk believes in complete transparency, security and reliability.
