I would take whatever the broker says with a very large grain of salt. I would also say that the impact with the bridge may have strained a lot more than just the mast. If the boat hit hard enough to damage the masthead, then, as JeffH points out, there is a very strong possibility that the boat has been exposed to very high stress event that may have long-term implications. A survey is essential, and the price should be significantly lower than that of comparable boats of the same model.

I would agree with his 15-20% price reduction...

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
