The commission due to any and all brokers on the sale of a boat is usually 10% of the sale price, and the brokerage gets half of that. If there are two brokers / brokerages involved, they'll split the 10%.

Many boat brokers have a $2K threshold (i.e. sale price must exceed $20K) before they will make any effort, or even take the listing.

Re: Which Site Are You Most Likely to Use To Sell Your Boat

I had my boat on CL and SBL When I renewed my ad on SBL is when Shane the new owner saw it! So I did not sell my boat via CL like I really thought would happen.

Re: Which Site Are You Most Likely to Use To Sell Your Boat

I've had good experience on craigslist. For a boat that's not asking too large a price, it works pretty well.

Re: Which Site Are You Most Likely to Use To Sell Your Boat

Been building my own site for cruising sailboats at SailFarYachts.com. It's a niche market and website, but we focus on social media marketing and what we believe is an attractive showcase for a "for sale" sailboat.

Re: Which Site Are You Most Likely to Use To Sell Your Boat

Maybe this was mentioned before... but why would you limit to one place

When I sell my boat, I will listed it several places.. just as I will look several places when I buy

Same here. Best one in Canada. We used to use Gam on Yachting, but haven't checked in there for a while. Doesn't seem to be up to date: http://www.gamonyachting.com/ but I did get a magazine in mail not long ago.
