Re: Trying another tack... Looking for the right boat near Vancouver, BC.
As a hopeful soonish boat buyer, I have followed this with interest ... and horror!
I would think that if a buyer says something material about the boat, like the engine is new, I would hack in a line into the agreement, something like:
The sellor warrants that the engine is new. This is a material condition that if not true, renders this agreement null and void. The sellor will immediately return the deposit monies ...
Any lawyers here feel free to translate the above into legal such that we all have a template here.
