Advise needed on dealing over price

I really need advise from some experienced boat buyers. We have been looking for a boat.A few weeks ago a broker E-mailed me about a boat saying he thought we could get it for X price. This was 10% less than the owners asking price. Is''nt this what the owner really wanted in the first place. We offered 15% less than the asking price. The owner countered by only taking a few thousnd off and the broker said ,Why not split the difference which took us right back to the price mentioned. I am a rookie and feel as if I am beinng reeled in. Please help.
