As we asked more questions about the poor condition of the boat, the broker was losing his enthusiasm. When asked about the two piece mast
, he said Sabre
made some of their boats with two-piece masts.
He knew we knew this boat was never going to sell anything close to asking price
. It may never sell. I'd love to see the survey
boatpoker would come back with. Run away! Run away!
After we were back on the dock
, the broker told us the owner needed to lower his price. It had been for sale
over a year and was getting no looks. Even after the damage it sustained in Sandy, the owner didn't fix the obvious damage or lower the price. I call seller's like that "buyer kickers" as it's obvious they are just looking for a sucker.
But this was the only lemon we have experienced so far. Most of the boats have been pretty close to their description and the brokers have been been honest when asked the hard questions.
