That is very true and a common tactic for some brokers. If a broker is honest and tells the seller what the boat is really worth, some less honest broker will not and end up with the listing. Much better, at least short-medium term, from the brokers perspective to get the listing and let reality play out over time.
Once the broker has the listing, in 99% of the cases it means payday, maybe not today or next month but eventually the price will be right and a sale will occur.
