If it were me, I would deal strictly with the new broker, the one who showed you the boat. Why should you involve the original broker? He has nothing to do with this boat - it's over an hour away. Note that unless you have special arrangements, the broker works for the seller, not the buyer.
Being a boat broker is a business and your local broker should understand that if you purchase a boat an hour away from him, that he doesn't deserve any money for that. He showed you some local boats, and the boats weren't right for you. Sometimes you win and sometimes you lose.
If I were broker for the boat you saw, I would not want to share my commission with your original broker. Again, your original broker has nothing to do with this deal.
Good luck with your boat search.
