Sorry if I didn't clarify. I was trying to access information on those boats through the listing brokers via their own websites. I'd picked them off of Yachtworld.
That's why I found it startling that they didn't reply.
Same thing when I made the phone calls, direct to the listing broker.

I have since been in contact with a local broker that would act as a buyers agent, but he wants a cut as well.
Never bought a boat this way before.
I was fortunate when I bought and sold my previous boats that they were in great condition when I bought and sold, and buyers just sort of showed up.

I used to cruise BC waters, and there was a wide selection of boats locally.
Presently I'm in Nova Scotia, and the type of boat I'm now looking for is almost non existent. I have to go to the US for any selection.

Before I make the rounds, I'd like to qualify the boats that fit the bill to avoid too many destinations, thus travel costs.

In summary, everything I'm doing is preliminary right now, but with brokers, even simple emails, or return phone calls are a challenge.

PS.Camarderie, I have looked at the Passports as well. Nice boats.
