Re: What Is A Boat Really Worth?


Big huge expensive boats are more formal than less expensive boats.

In Julie's price range, a verbal offer that clarified whether there was a finance contingency and a promise to send the contract and good faith deposit right behind it, should suffice. But, it is the sellers call.

For that matter, when I made my offer on this boat, the seller, my broker, the seller's broker and me were all in 4 different, non-contiguous states. The offer was not held up by the speed of the post office. I committed that the check would go in the mail to my broker today. The offer was brought forward without it. We did haggle for a week or two, in which time the check was not cashed. I don't think the brokers want the responsibility for the actual cash, unless there is an actual deal.

However, my broker was able to vouch for me, as we had just gone through survey on another that failed. He knew I was good for it.
