Broker recomendations

Following Jeff''s recomendation I am trying now to locate a reputable broker in a major sailing venue. It''s funny, all of their web sites say that they''re the best in the biz'' and there are dozens of them in any area I look. If I call them I don''t expect them to say anything different. My wife is really interested in going west coast and I don''t care. So how about all you west coast salts start handing out the awards for the most reputable broker between SF and San Diego that knows offshore boats and works w/ someone looking to spend less than 90k. Remember to include your 25 word essay on why they deserve this award (j.k. :-).

Broker recomendations

Not ready to hand out awards but can get you started:
I have spoken with Alan Hardwicke (in San Diego) at H&S Yachts, very low key for a broker, it''s very large brokerage & Beneteau/Sabre Dealer with offices in every West Coast port. http://www.hsyacht.com/index.htm
I have purchased from Ian Bossenger (sp) at www.dreamcatcheryachts.com, a small brokerage in Dana Point (SD & Orange county border) Ian is new to yacht sales, honest, former pig farmer with New Zealand Accent, may have brokers license now, lives in San Diego County. He''ll work to find you what you want anywhere in So. Cal. E-mail is ian@dreamcatcheryachts.com They are an Island Packet dealer.

Dreamcatcher Yachts in Dana Point is a dealer for Pacific Seacraft rather than Island Packet.

You are correct re: Dreamcatcher is Pacific Seacraft dealer, also Alan Hardwicke works for Southwestern Yachts (SD) not H&S. Early morning brainfade on my part.
