dongreerps Agree with the recommendation of BVI Yacht Sales. Call Keith Simpso at 284-494-3260.

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.

Good idea, lot of vessels for sale will have a survey "on file" with the broker. You may need another on if it is older or if you are not able to trust the source of the survey...

TQA Just bought the above boat long distance through Maritime yacht Sales St Thomas. Dave McCall treated me fairly and was very resposive to requests for info, etc.

Tanny Thanks mitiempo!

I've emailed Rom.

We'll see what happens...

mitiempo 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.

Tanny Faster,

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.
