I guess if a seller knew you were bidding on multiple boats simultaneously, he/she might take you less serious than you'd prefer or may rather deal with someone who is more focused. I know that I'd personally rather deal with someone interested in my boat more so than who makes the best deal.
One other thing which strikes me is that buying a boat is very much an emotional decision as compared with being strictly economic and your scenario sounds more like someone in the used car wholesale business than someone looking for a boat.
Also, don't know what you mean by "diffusing the contenders" - is that a euphemism for undermining an otherwise legitimate potential buyer?
