Looking For an Annapolis Area Broker Recommendation (Buyer)

We're flying out to Annapolis next week to look at a few boats (dedicated trip) and rather than just call the listing broker of one or two of the boats we'd like to see, I figured I might be better off with someone recommended from the gang here.

So, does anyone have a broker in the Annapolis area they can recommend (for a buyer)?



Thanks,

Daz

Bernie at Rogue Wave specializes in off-shore boats. By the way, mine is for sale - listed with Richard Kahn at the Annapolis Sailyard. He has a long history of selling sailboats - Taswells and Valiants. You might also want to check-out Walzak Brokerage - their website lists all the sailboats available in the Chesapeake area.

Bill Adams sold me Berzerker and is the former Hallberg Rassy distributor. Can't say enough good things about him.

Bernie is one of the most knowledgable curmudgeons you'll ever run across. Smart as hell, though he isn't the guy who's going to show you 23 different 1980s Hunters.

Scott Taylor at Crusader. Really helpful, sincere and has that most important characteristic that is rarely found in brokers - he listens to what YOU want and doesn't try to show you crap that doesn't meet your criteria. Cruising Stories Blog Archive Scott Taylor

Where do you keep Berzerker? Auspicious is on Back Creek at Watergate Village.

In my view Bill and Bernie are head and shoulders above any other broker I have run into (clearly not all) around Annapolis. If you want someone that you can truly trust you can be confident in either gentleman.

I second Richie Kahn at The Sailyard. The best that Annapolis has to offer...tell him Alan and Trish said hello.

Thanks for the recommendations everyone. I'm currently waiting to hear back from Bernie and/or Kate at Rogue Wave. If I don't hear from them in the next day or so I'll move on down my list.

I'm heading for Annapolis on Tuesday, will let you all know if the right boat finds me.
