Anyone know of a source for sales contract forms? I am selling my boat and need some kind of standardize form to document our agreeement--are there any web sites where I can download a form> Obviously a local broker won''t part with one unless I part with 10%! THANKS!

Try the USCG office in your area..they used to carry a sales agreement for the sale of a documented vessel. You could do the transfer right at the office and it was quick and easy

I would be happy to email you a modified copy of the yacht purchase agreement that I used when I sold my boat. I modified it from the agreement that was put together by the broker that I originally bought it through. Then I ran it by a good friend that is a lawyer that said it looked ok--this is always a good idea.

I am not an attorney but below is a form I have used to sell boats I have owned. It is a simple Bill of Sale. The Bill of Sale is a simple agreement between two parties so that a check can be given to hold the boat and the parties agree to proceed to closing. Closing can be done by the finance company, the seller does not even have to be there.

Here it is, hope is helps (you should be able to cut and paste into MS Word or other):



BILL OF SALE

And Legally Binding Agreement


Dated:

********, referred to as "SELLER", sells, bargains and conveys all of SELLER''S right, title and interest in the following boat:

*************, Hull # ************* to:

______________________________________________________, referred to as "BUYER",

Seller acknowledges receipt of a total of $ ______________________ from BUYER as a deposit for the purchase price of the goods conveyed hereby.

********** warrants that there are no encumbrances on the goods sold, and that SELLER''s title to the goods is clear and merchantable.

The BUYER, _____________________________________, acknowledges examining the goods sold herein. The goods sold herein are used and sold "as is" and "where is." These goods are sold without warranty by the SELLER, including fitness for a particluar purpose or merchantability. The goods herein are not sold by a merchant in the field.

Specific conditions:

1. Sale of this vessel includes all materials on her at the time of sea trial and no others.
2. BUYER agrees to take possession and remove craft from the marina within 7 days.

For all of you asking that this form be emailed to you, stop! Just go to the document above, highlight it with your cursor then do a "control C" then open a new document and do a "control V"
