Re: Puerto Rico Yacht/Boat Broker Recommendations
Thank you all for your comments.
At this juncture, I'm just trying to get a sense of what's the best option. If the yacht were my own I would either take her to the VI's; or, bring her back to the US, likely Annapolis but she is not and we're trying to make the best recommendation we can given the circumstances. Moving the yacht to where ever requires launching and recommissioning her, a job that took her late owner a week or two and he knew all of her vagaries. I/We do not so it would be a case of OJT with her systems. The sail to the VI's is/would be a no brainer, BTDT, but slipping her and maintaining her once there would be problematic, particularly if she did not sell reasonably quickly. While a highly desirable yacht, at least to the experienced and more knowledgeable, and well positioned for those that want to cruise the EC, she is, what some would regard as an "old boat" (1986) with older electronics, and for many these would be "problems". If she does not sell during the season, one would then have to deal with re-securing her for hurricane season yet again.
N'any case, we're working on it. I shall look into VI Brokers so if anyone has any suggestions or experience with any there, please post your thoughts.
