Re: Whats the point of boat brokers?
If the owner hired a broker, it stands to reason they want someone else to deal with it. The motivation is often the time it takes to show, vet, negotiate. Listing contracts typically call for the broker to be paid, even if the owner sources and negotiates the sale. Otherwise, the broker is competing against their own client, which means they are wasting their time fishing that pond.
You can always ask, some owners may be willing to engage. Most won't.... hence the broker.
