I had phenomenal luck with my broker. I started by looking myself. Each boat I looked at was being shown by a broker. Finally I broke down and spoke with the one that seemed to know his stuff and care the least bit about whether we bought a boat - he just wanted to make sure we were happy with what we were buying. He'd tell us the good AND the flaws with each model we looked at. The nice thing about having a broker is that he could take our specifications and find the boats for us. We still had full control over the actual sale and offer. There was never ANY pressure to buy.
