Recommendations on Where to Sell Boat ?

Dear all,

Unfortunately we are coming to an end of our cruise and are selling our boat Ocean Explorer.

It is not possible to advertize on Yachtworld.com if you are not a dealer/brooker - do any of you know any good on-line sites where we can put her up for sale privately?

PS: How much do you normally pay to a brooker?
PPS: We are currently in Puerto Rico, heading south...

Thanking beforehand!

Jens

Aloha Jens,

You might try here: Sailboat Listings - sailboats for sale

There are others but that is the one I check the most.

kind regards,

A lot of people post theirs up on Ebay and Craigslist... though I'd hate to think what the fees are. But might be worth looking into. The last couple cruisers we've met got their boats off ebay.

A "standard" Boat Broker's fee is 10% of selling price.

Apolloduck is spelled with 1 p if you are trying to do a search for it.

You can make a site and advertise via this forum (so I think). But yachtworld is a place to place to boat - many potentials search just there.
