Re: Did I break boat buying etiquette?
Agreed with all the above. If you're that interested in the boat I'd climb the chain of command in a heartbeat. I can't believe that business selling $30k yachts is so good that they are happy to run off people who are actively looking to buy.
If you decide to buy it, deal with a different agent and give him the "Pretty Woman" movie treatment..."Do you work on commission? Big mistake. Huge."
If it turns out the douchebag IS the management, read the registration and track down the owner, then go direct. I would never advocate that outside of situations like this, but if that guy owns the brokerage or something, I'd cut him out in a second. It's obvious he's not doing the boat owner any service.
