Welcome to TF from another Tri Citian.

When we bought our boat I used a buyer's broker but only as a source of some information and answers. I paid him a flat fee for that and in all honesty I feel I overpaid him based on the amount of work he did for me.

I did all the boat search (we found her in MI), did the negotiations, arranged for the surveyors, flew back for two sea trials, arranged for the load to be transported to OR and all the ancillary stuff that went into the purchase process, by myself.

If I were going to do it again I'd not bother with a buyer's broker.
