In life, you will find that, too often, people are afraid to take their lives beyond the horizon. Many would rather stay where they are, in their comfort zone, than make that move forward to the ultimate next level. But that life beyond the horizon awaits, ready to award anyone daring enough to go after it.
Zehra is an extraordinary luxury yacht broker. She is a licensed captain and marine engineer who traveled the world on super yachts until she finally decided to retire her sea legs for a more stable career on solid ground. Merging her passion with developed expertise in marketing, branding, and luxury sales, the visionary has become a top-of-mind choice for individuals, entrepreneurs, and organizations wanting to own yachts and explore travel destinations and many breathtaking parts of the world with super yachts.
Zehra leverages her expertise in architecture and construction to provide clients with the best yachting experience. She is passionate about making their investment feel that it’s worth every penny as they make unforgettable memories traveling the world or building their brand with such a luxurious asset. With her unrivaled negotiation skills, Zehra is helping her clients land the best deals possible and find the best yachts for their needs, be it for exploring exotic sites or propelling their brand image and using their super yacht as a form of mobile marketing.
“Time is non-refundable, and most memories are made through experiences. Yachting is one of the most incredible experiences to start living with, in the most precious way as you get to connect with the beautiful ocean and travel to untouched destinations that you can only reach by water,” said Zehra. “Besides, it is the best way to get together, spend good quality time with your family and loved ones, and share the experience, creating lifelong memories. Yachts are also great branding vehicles for business purposes. One of my clients named her yacht after her company’s product line, and now she is using the yacht for marketing, branding, promoting her products on board and entertaining her clients by creating yacht events,” the entrepreneur added further.
Beyond making the sale, Zehra aims to influence people’s lifestyles by showcasing how life-changing owning a yacht can be. It’s not all about numbers but ensuring that her clients get the most value in life by creating memories to treasure for a lifetime and forging strong relationships with industry leaders worldwide.
Zehra attributes a big part of her success to her deep knowledge of human behavior. She has been coached to learn behavior science and NLP, speaking, and good communication, which gives her a superior advantage in knowing her clients’ needs. She takes pride in her process: she is attuned to her client’s thoughts, listens well, and understands people’s behavior and needs more than themselves. Her top priority is guiding them through the decision-making process of yacht investment. She determines how they can use her expertise to help them on their journey to owning their first yacht or even finding the best charter yachts available in some of the most exclusive destinations in the world.
“I focus on seeking excellence in everything I do and pursue to deliver outstanding results and benefits throughout the process of yacht purchase and sale,” said Zehra. “After sales, I help my clients find the best marina to dock their yacht, help them find the right yacht crew, and anything related to planned maintenance or the interior design of their yacht. I advise them throughout the journey. I stay in their life as the first person to call as being the yacht broker for anything they need.”
