I think it's always advisable to use a broker. He acts the same way a realestate broker protecting your interest as well as providing a knowledge base that goes beyond what a normal buyer would know. If you haven't signed any papers yet a broker can advise you on conditions you should include in your offer to ensure you don't get shafted. He also know the fair market value of the boat. As I said before,as long as you are buying a brokerage boat, it costs you nothing and it costs the seller no more. It's free for you so why not take advantage of it. If it's a private deal then it will cost, however.
