Craigslist(private seller) Vs. Broker

Howdy all,
As I search far and wide for the "Perfect Boat" for me. (I'm looking for a Catalina 30 1988-1994). I look at all the local classifieds including Craigslist. I have also gone to see a couple of Brokers. My basic question is should a novice boat buyer like myself limit my dealings with a Broker? What are the advantages/disadvanteges of dealing with Brokers or buying a boat from a private seller.
As always, any sage advice is greatly appreciated
