Brokers in the Pacific Northwest

About to take my Swift Trawler 44 up to Anacortes, or that general area, to sell.

Doing some due diligence on brokers in the area. Anyone have any that you really like, any to stay away from?

Feel free to send me a PM.

Thanks in advance!

Anacortes is a good place to list a boat, many Canadians monitor that area for boat purchases.

The Anacortes Boat Show, sponsored by local brokers, starts on May 16. It's a big annual event where you can meet and talk to all the best brokers in one place -- plus 300 plus boats to see and compare against your vessel.

nwboater,
Great heads up on that. Don’t think I’ve ever heard of it.

Yeah, I'm actually trying to get the boat up there in time for it. Thanks.

Another vote for Pacific Boat Brokers. https://www.pacificboatbrokers.com/index.asp
They have one of the best sites and in my experience, do a great job for both the seller and buyer.

I've had excellent experiences with Jeff Gleckler at Gateway Yachts at Cap Sante Marina. I've sold and purchased through him and found him to be honest, smart and personable.

I've heard there's a good broker in Bellingham.

I have bought and sold 2 boats from Marine Service Center. They are a top notch company with an office in Seattle on Lake Union in addition to Anacortes. Dan Krier is the Sales Representative I have worked with on all 4 transactions, and I highly recommend him. He is a straight shooting, honest and effective broker. He will do an excellent job marketing your boat and make sure you get the most out of it.

We agree. Jon Heisel is the best!

I sold my Nordic tug through Fairhaven yacht sales and purchased another due to sales tax credits. Send me your email or phone number and I can discuss at length the issues I came across. Good info from a former client of theirs.

Chuck Seaman @ Seattle Yachts Anacortes office did an excellent job for me. Three different transactions, both buying, and selling.
