Brook can handle a virtually unlimited amount of questions thanks to its connection to our leading database. Through a simple chat interface, users can ask Brook about anything from looking up yacht specs to performing complex, long-tail searches.

Thanks to our new AI, users can now search in a way that truly reflects the technical capabilities of today's world and of the Yacht Harbour team.

For example, Brook can tell you what is the biggest yacht built by Lurssen currently for sale or what is the fastest yacht designed by Terence Disdale.

When building Brook, the development team has created an infrastructure that will autonomously expand as our users interact with it. This means in other terms that Brook has the ability to learn an exponential amount of trivia by himself and that over time he'll leave no question unanswered.

Yacht Harbour has developed this AI system in-house to help in its objective to make yacht search more accessible to potential yacht buyers. We expect Brook to be extremely popular amongst a variety of target audiences. During a week-long testing period in the US, we're happy to report that Brook has managed to successfully answer in excess of 80% of all questions asked.

Yacht Harbour has seen the need for such a system after over a year in business providing a search system for yachts for sale.  Our team felt that covering yacht news every day and operating its own yacht database gave it enough knowledge on the sector to build the artificial intelligence to make search smarter.
