Canadian looking for Broker

Hello everyone!

I'm trying to locate a broker who comes well recommended and can help me find a used sailboat in Florida or the Caribbean.

I live in Canada, so going to look at boats for sale in Florida or the Caribbean will be very expensive and time consuming.

I've spent hours surfing sites like Yachtworld and, and I think I have narrowed down the type of boat I need, but I will need the services of a broker to help arrange a viewing, negotiate offers, find a surveyor, finalize the deal, register the boat, pay taxes etc.

Are their any Canadians who have been through this process and can recommend a good broker? I don't even know if a Canadian broker or one in Florida would be best.

Thanks for any help you can provide!
