Re: Yacht Brokerage Law and Ethics

Its me the OP. Here is what I have been able to figure out.

1. If the owner was marketing the boat on their own as a courtesy they should have informed the broker of what they were doing as they went along for the precise reason to avoid what happened me.

2. The broker should never have promised me my offer would be the only one presented when the broker does not have control over other people making offers to the owner bypassing the broker.

3. If the broker had a high level of ethics she should have severed her relationship with the seller the moment she realized what the seller had done going behind her back marketing the boat. The commission was more important than the ethics.
