Default To Broker or Not To Broker?

What is the best platform for sale, going with a broker or using an internet service for advertising? And what is the typical commission for a sale?

The boat is in So. Florida right now, and I have heard that going with a broker can be a nightmare?

You might want to talk to Randy at (Fast Boats . com). He can store, sell, or buy outright, and has low overhead for fair commissions.

I would not buy a boat from a broker. 10 % commission ,

I have seen some boats listed for over a year before.When I was shopping for my last boat i talked to some brokers they did not know alot about the boats and most seemed alittle dishonest .

Just my op

tryed a broker on my first boat. never again!
boat sat all season , they never advertized it and never brought me one potential customer.
finally took it back and sold it myself within 2 months.

take some good pics , be honest about condition , price it fair.......and try to be patient.
