Surfesq is on a distinguished road
I have sold several boats, one through a broker and one on my own. The first lesson I learned selling a boat on my own is that a sea trial is allowed after there is a contract. You would be shocked by the number of yo-yos out there who will waste your time just for a ride. Also, if a prospective buyer asks for a survey offer to split the cost on the first one so that you have a reliable survey to show other potential buyers.
