Boat Broker in Seattle area

Hello Everyone:

Sadly, it has come time to move off the boat after a 2 year live-aboard cruise to Alaska. We would really appreciate some reviews, suggestions or comments re brokers in the Seattle, Everett, Bellingham corridor. We sail a 20 year old Crealock 34 that has been refitted with new diesel, sails, running rigging, and electronics. We really hate to do this but its time to go back to work.

Thanks for the input.

David and Jo Demars

Fred West with West Yachts is a one man operation. Nice guy. David with Anacortes Yacht Charters is also a broker and a genuinely nice guy. He's a bit of a scatterbrain though 'cause once on a test sail he forgot about the helm and went forward while I was forward working on freeing something, we took a hard puff and I had water to my calves until the boat rounded up. He's still a nice guy who does good followup with prospective customers.

The purchase price of a boat is just the admittance fee to the dance...you still have to spend money on the girl...so court one with something going for her with pleasing and desirable character traits others desire as well... or you could find yourself in a disillusioned relationship contemplating an expensive divorce.
