Does anybody have experience buying from National Liquidators - the Boat and Yacht Liquidation Company?

Bought two boats from the Ft Lauderdale office and knew the California office too. You can get a good deal. Just be patient and find something you want.

Great! Can you recommend a broker over there. The one I was talking to didn't know what a yawl is so I assume he is a powerboat guy

Don't be looking for an expert in sail power or submarines. They just move out boats. I dealt with Ron Brozic in Fort Lauderdale.

Re: Experience w/ National Liquidators

Did you have a survey done before bidding and was your bid near their estimate? I am considering the gulfstar 45 they have but it is not worth 45k in that condition

Bear in mind, they offer repo boats or government auctions like from the IRS or US Marshalls.

Sometimes the banks would rather sit on the boat than take a loss.
