opinions of 2 brokers in/near MA?
I went to the New England Boat Show this weekend and had great fun climbing in and on all the different boats. I can't afford to buy a new boat, but I was hoping to get a feel for how much space is available, etc (and I was successful).
I made a couple of contacts at the show and I was wondering if anyone had any dealings with either:
John L. Proctor of Lawson Yachts, Hingham MA.
Glenn Walters of Eastern Yacht Sales, Portsmouth RI
I stupidly only spent a couple seconds talking to John and just grabbed his card. I realized after I left that he was the broker recommended to me by Mark Nicholas, author of "The Essentials of Living Aboard a Boat", when I had contacted him to find out who the unnamed broker he really liked was in his book.
Glenn was unfortunately left with the impression that I was interested in buying a new Jeanneau 36i, but apparently he also sells used boats (that's what Yacht Broker means, right?). He seems like a nice enough guy, and I hate to have to tell him that I can't afford to buy new... although at the prices they were offering, it's pretty darn tempting. I just know it's a terrible investment.
