Would You Quit Searching for the Boats I'm Interested in !?

I'm asking you to stop searching for the type of boats I'm interested in on yachtworld. If too much interest is shown, I'm sure it affects the negotiating. No more.. "well, there's a lot of interest in that boat". Not if everyone quits looking at it there wouldn't be. The hit counter has got to be fooled. Help me.

I'd tell you what I'm interested in, but then you'd start searching them out and that won't help at all.

PrivLeopLag.. not like my handle gives anything away

Re: Would you quit searching for the boats I'm interested in!

counter their statement with-- well, the market is sooo soft, how could there be ANY interest in boats of late?????
goood luck and welcome....
there is a difference between interest in as in looky-loos and potential buyers---should not affect the potential purchase price.. they are merely looking out for their commission. i didnt notice such animated response in the sale of my ericson--is still for sale .....

I found one

I saw a Privleoplag on Yachtworld but I'm not going to tell you where it is. If you don't want to play then I'm taking my toys and I'm going home.

Re: Would you quit searching for the boats I'm interested in!

I'm definitely not interested in that boat. So you won't see me add anymore to the that counter. Zeehag said it all. Interest might be countered by "How many offers are there?" Most times the curious are not really buyers.
kind regards,

Same old broker BS.

Find the right boat. If too expensive, make an offer slightly below what you are willing to pay. Wait. If nothing happens, find another boat.

The only case when this does not work out is when there are very few boats of the type you like - you may be forced to take what there is, at the price there is.
