Readers say:

LOL - You do have to treat them as you would an estate agent, as they are essentially doing the same but for boats...
what found staggering was the variation is quality/usefulness of the websites, from the really good with pictures and/or videos to the downright dire. I can recommend Harral brokerage who were easy to deal with and had a good selection of craft. Other than that its just a question of looking round all the usual suspects!

I presume the best answer is to trust your own judgement and do as much research on the type of boat that you want,having a survey is a good idea. Don't forget all types of brokers are after the sale as they want their cut [parden the pun].All the same try Virginia Currer Marine ask for John he is an expert in this field.Good Luck
