A buyer's broker is actually a seller's broker since they share the commission with the direct seller's broker. Nonetheless, I still recommend the use of one. A good broker will listen to what your needs are and direct you towards boats you may not have thought of. They can also access comps (real selling prices of comparative boats) so you can figure out what to offer. Be careful though - they will make their money if you buy the boat, so they will tend to push you hard down that path.
