If you're got the time, you might try for yourself for a while using Craigslist, C22 association, etc.

The benefits of using a listing broker include no showing/scheduling hassles, legal paperwork is on the broker, negotiations is on the broker, some liability is on the broker, better advertising with a good broker, etc. It may also be true that boats listed with brokers fetch a higher sales price (making up for the commission) and sell in a shorter amount of time on average. Or at least the last sentence is true for real estate, so it may also apply to boats.
