I prefer dealing directly with the owner, but don't expect to keep that 10%. The buyers aren't stupid either. How soon do you need to sell it? Can you go show the boat and deal with multiple inquiries by just lookers. If you put a high price on the boat and list it yourself the buyers will just laugh at you. Brokers also have Yachtworld and you won't, so their exposure will be much better. I have bought and sold boats on craigslist, but they were less expensive. You are also in the realm of financing, which a broker can help the buyer with.
