He started this adventure dumb as a rock and apparently he is still very much like that now.

That's probably the salvage Quote he got. That's just to float it. Just reading between the lines here.

Water/keel/hull damage to be determined. Photos, specs, and additional info coming soon.

Photo shown is sistership, not actual boat.

Selling as salvage as is where is.
That listing agent calls himself a "Licensed Yacht and Ship Salesman" just the act of listing this seems to me a violation of any kind of ethics, given he is trying sell something that will never float again. Seems he could well loose his "license" if there is any kind of review board.

Re: So... I have sort of a situation

Hmm...A brightly colored sinking old hulk of dubious fame appeals to a few morons who think it might be bought as-is and then be made great again is receiving a huuge amount of unwarranted free exposure on multiple popular internet sites.

I don't see why. He isn't making any representations that aren't true. The broker doesn't decide whether or not to sell the boat. The owner wants it sold, has set a price on it, and has contracted with a broker to list it. My guess would be that the broker thinks the owner is just as bat-crap crazy as we all do, but there's nothing unethical about posting a listing on a boat for sale.

Now, if the broker starts lying about the condition of the boat, or the terms of the sale, then that's a different matter. But just listing a boat that no one in their right mind would buy? Nothing unethical about that.

Well his listing is missing quite a few KNOWN things, like the fact that the boat is sunk. Also listing a boat for sale at thousands times it's value is at the very least unprofessional, but certainly is can be viewed as unethical. Since he is representing himself as an expert one would should be able to believe that his listing is somewhat based on reality and trust that the price is in line. At the very least it is making him look to be a broker that would sell anything for a buck. A respectable broker would say I don't want to be associated with that [email protected]
