Re: No Sea Trial
My preference is to buy from a private seller, when possible. For this use Craigslist.org and sailboatlistings.com to find private sellers. I sold my boat fast on Sailboatlistings.com and can't imagine what a broker could have added other than cost.
I find that when a private seller is happy to take you out, it says a lot about his confidence in the condition of the boat.
