I continue to personally believe that buyer's brokers are rare or non-existent in the yacht world, and usually reflect someone's confusion about the role of "their" broker.

But always ready to learn something new.

Why do you think you have a buyer's broker? If you are using a buyer's broker...well then scan and post a copy of your brokers agreement and we can look up the answer to your question.

AleksandarTOR Thank you olson34 and mitiempo for the info on Robert Perry. Thanks Minnewaska, your answer really explained it to me now.

Minnewaska If you contact a broker, they are unlikely to bother showing you a private listing, unless you agree to pay the commission. If you've already found a private listing that you like, you don't need a broker, you need a surveyor. There is a lot of information on this site to help you determine whether the prospect boat is worth surveying.

Good luck.

mitiempo Bob Perry charges $500 now and that includes ongoing questions within reason. My neighbor has done this and has a Valiant 40.

He/She is working for you... your mutually-agreed upon contract would spell out the payment amount and the how/when/where of earning it.

Sidebar: Not in a "brokerage" capacity, per se, but NA Bob Perry has been offering a fixed consulting fee for buyers seeking advice one of his many designs, for the last 25 years or so. He used to charge about $300. It may have risen with inflation. I'm not sure of the time limits on redialing his # for continued consultation.

Sidebar #2: Like any large purchase, yacht, house, airplane... often a buyer hires the services of a specialist attorney to do the diligence and proper paperwork, on a flat fee or hourly basis.

Happy shopping,
