|Zanshin||For the Caribbean area I can recommend choosing BVI Yacht Sales (BVI Yacht Sales Ltd.) with hesitation. They not only have a lot of their own boats listed but have good connections all around the BVI/USVI and down island. They would make a good buyer's broker as well. If you are interested in further information, just PM me.|

|NICHOLSON58||Be sure you ask to see the survey before you decide on the boat and before you add it to your list to visit. A survey can save you a lot of wasted time. You may find certain boats show and photo well but have buried troubles. Yachtworld was able to send me pdf documents of surveys on file.|

I'll chip in and recommend a firm I know well in Sidney, B.C.
Custom Yacht Sales Ltd. - British Columbia
I know both Greg and Rom and have dealt with them in the past as have friends. They have been importing US boats and dealing south for many years not just in the current financial situation.

I see that you are in New Westminster, BC.
I'm in Calgary, and there aren't a lot of sailboat brokers here. Can you recommend any local BC brokers?

|Capnblu||We hired a broker to present the offer and to do the counter offers. In my opinion, you are going to have to do the leg work yourself. you will be finding the listings yourself, and come up with a spread sheet of questions and start making phone calls to the listing brokers. Better yet put your questions in writing, and don't be disappointed when they only answer half of them. If your experience is any thing like ours, you will feel like a babysitter by the time you are done. Every broker talks to buyers every day that say they are ready to buy, but the problem is the buyers some times take a year to decide, so most brokers treat every customer like a lookey Lou. They are not realtors after all. In the end you will probably wonder why you didn't just present the offer to the listing broker yourself, and deduct the commission he would have given to your broker. Every broker we tried to get to find us a boat, just sent us the yachtworld listings we already had seen. Just my opinion, maybe you will have better luck. BLU.|
