"Also, if a prospective buyer asks for a survey offer to split the cost on the first one so that you have a reliable survey to show other potential buyers."
SURF????
I gasp, I am taken aback, I am shocked, I am agape and agog.

I, and my work, is commissioned by one party, for use by that one party, and that one party only.
From the survey agreement...

"the following procedures are used in our surveys for the exclusive use of the person named as "Client" on Page 1 of this agreement. This survey is NOT TRANSFERABLE to any other person, and the information provided herein is for the EXCLUSIVE USE of THIS CLIENT ONLY.

also from the agreement...
This report WILL NOT be made available to ANY OTHER PARTY without the written consent of the Client, and the Surveying firm.

shame on you Surfesq.

We are not primarily on earth to see through one another, but to see one another through

Generally, most surveyors will do what Paul has mentioned... sharing the survey is very bad for their business.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

its been a long day...

And I'm quasi-stewed that an Esteemed Barrister, A Juris Doctorate, A Solicitor, An Esquire... An officer of the court, a tort-tooter extrordinaire, a man that made a living pushing papers down our collective file cabinets would suggest such a thing!
aww, hell, who am i kidding.

I don't think it has been mentioned, but I think that picking the Broker and Brokerage is just as important as deciding by-owner or not. We ended up buying new for variuos reasons. However, we worked with several brokers and a few Brokerages over two- to three-years in our quest. There are Brokerages and Brokers we would not consider when it comes time to sell. There are two to three brokers, which we'll contact when that time comes.

Occassionally I've seen folks ask for broker recommendations in a particular area. If you decide to sell via a broker, you might want to consider another thread asking for recommendations and follow up with one-one-one correspondance.

Two advantages of selling a boat through a broker are 1. he has a huge market with the internet the whole world (friends of mine who are brokers get most of their sales through the internet) and 2. people feel more comfortable dealing with a broker. I would also recommend that anyone buying a boat use a broker of their own to assist in buying the boat - just like you would a realestate broker. As some one pointed out in an earlier post what you get in the end will not be much different, so why not go with the advantages.

Although I am a Junnior member, I have one story about a misrepresanted boat I purchased. I was online looking at sailboats for some time till I saw one that diden't look right. The boat was not selling, so I went to the marina to see why. The boat was advertised as one model and it was in fact another. It never got any interest, so after my recearch I found out it was worth alot more than the asking price so I low balled to the extream and was accepted! The seller had waited for many years till the depreation value and storage were overwhelming and took the first offer that came along. The basis of this story is to make sure the broaker knows your boat as you do and don't misinform of him/her on your vessel and also make sure the broaker is showing it and ask if any potential buyers have taken interest in it. Keep him/her busy, the boat might get lost in all the other sales and the attention might shift in the wrong direction.
