Sales Contract Forms
Anyone know of a source for sales contract forms? I am selling my boat and need some kind of standardize form to document our agreeement--are there any web sites where I can download a form> Obviously a local broker won''t part with one unless I part with 10%! THANKS!

Try the USCG office in your area..they used to carry a sales agreement for the sale of a documented vessel. You could do the transfer right at the office and it was quick and easy

I would be happy to email you a modified copy of the yacht purchase agreement that I used when I sold my boat. I modified it from the agreement that was put together by the broker that I originally bought it through. Then I ran it by a good friend that is a lawyer that said it looked ok--this is always a good idea.

I am not an attorney but below is a form I have used to sell boats I have owned. It is a simple Bill of Sale. The Bill of Sale is a simple agreement between two parties so that a check can be given to hold the boat and the parties agree to proceed to closing. Closing can be done by the finance company, the seller does not even have to be there.

Here it is, hope is helps (you should be able to cut and paste into MS Word or other):


And Legally Binding Agreement


********, referred to as "SELLER", sells, bargains and conveys all of SELLER''S right, title and interest in the following boat:

*************, Hull # ************* to:
