I have bought two boats from brokers.

The first time I made an offer, the broker took the offer to the owner, the offer was accepted, I sent 10% as a deposit, the boat was surveyed, I paid the rest at closing, sailed the boat home, etc.

The second time I made an offer to the broker, the broker presented the offer to the owner, the owner rejected the offer. The broker remembered some additional gear on the boat, I raised my offer, the offer was accepted, I sent 10%, the boat was surveyed, blah blah blah.
