Establishing an Understanding of your Boat

One of the many fun and exciting aspects of our brokerage services is where we talk boats. Most importantly about your boat. The more we know, the higher chance for success. If you succeed, we succeed. Here are some frequently asked questions by potential buyers.

  • How many hours on the engines?
  • Why are the owners selling?
