... and what are you looking for in a new-to-you boat?

I asked the same question a few months ago, and got some good suggestions.

I ended up with Dave McKenney of Brewer Yachts in Wickford. Very helpful and knowledgable...

Search for "RI Broker" in the boat review and purchase forum.

Sorry, I can't make it a link - the site says I haven't posted enough to merit the privilege. You apparently need 10 posts, and this is my 6th...

Good luck!

You could also try captainrated.com to see a database of brokers. Ya, you have to create an account (assuming that you don't use ActiveCaptain), but they won't spam you.

Wanted to follow up on this forum.

We did in fact buy a boat. We selected Ryan Miller at Latitude Yacht Brokerage in Newport, RI as our broker based on recommendations here and other sources. The entire process fantastic and Ryan led us each step of the way. Since this was our first boat we required a lot of input and Ryan was incredibly informative, constructive, professional and supportive. He helped us with finding, evaluating, surveying, insuring and documenting the vessel.

Will definitely use him again and would recommend him without any reservations.

Also, the sellers broker was Susan Opland at Massey Yacht Sales in Palmetto, FL. She was equally as helpful during the process from my perspective.

Thanks everyone for all of your input.
