Boat Buying


Have you spoken to any of the brokers yet? What dealers have the listings? How many boats have you looked at? I don't mean to insult you, but if you have been looking you will know that many of the boats listed are just junk. Many brokers don't know anything about the boats they represent. Unless you like to waste time, don't fly into CT until you get a lot more info on the boats.

Anyway, I can recommend Tim Mariner (his real name) at McMichael Yacht Brokers:
McMichael Yacht Brokers LTD. (Mamaroneck, NY)
they are in Mamaroneck NY, close to CT.


Warren Trafton at Sailing Yachts Rhode Island
Sailing Yachts - Rhode Island, Warren Trafton (Lafayette Village, RI)

check out the web sites, then give them a call.

They are both good guys.

Good luck,
