BVI broker recommendation

This is just to share the excellent experience i had selling my boat through BVI Yacht Sales. Todd Duff did a great job as a broker and Karen Simpson a stellar job in handling a closing that involved many countries.

They will not take a listing at a price that a boat cannot be sold but once they take a listing they work on it. Buyer got a great deal but I have no problem with that.

I would not hesitate to my next boat through BVI Yacht Sales.

Re: BVI broker recommendation

Great to hear. Same owner as BVI Yacht Charters, right?

Nope. BVI Yacht Charters and BVI Yacht Sales are not related.

Re: BVI broker recommendation

As usual there are two sides to most brokers.
Five years ago I had a very bad experience with BVI yacht sales, (Brian Duff, Toddís son), when I tried to buy a schooner from him. Itís an interesting, but long story of jiggerypokery and duplicity. I vowed I would never deal with them again, or recommend anyone to them, and I eventually bought a similar boat from another broker.
Svlamorocha may well have had a nice experience, but as far as Iím concerned I suggest anyone else still remembers, ďcaveat emptor.
