How to sell a boat?

We are a chinese boat building,and just started from last year, right now making a 41feet powerboat and some other small boat, we have the experiance to make the boats to US and europe because we separated from another Taiwanese factory which build exported boats, but I need to find some solutions about how to find customers or dealers in US europe?Any one can help me?

Trade shows, in particular boatbuilder trade shows, bring in many dealers. You need a rep who can believe in your product, and they are out there.
If you get together a good portfolio, video and photos, showing the construction plant, various stages of building, boat in water performing, test analysis, etc., he will have a better idea of how to market the boat, and he can use your material to sell dealers.
You will either have to ship a boat to a rep, or offer a money-back guarantee of satisfaction. Quite a risk, and costly, but if your boat is well built and at a good price, the risks go down.
Post a picture or two of your boats here, and get some feedback.
