Good yacht brokers in the Mediterranean?

As others have pointed out, euros are cheap now, and it might be wise to look at boats in Europe if you are planning to buy.
Over the next few months, I will be looking for a motor yacht, and would be interested in getting a buyer's broker or similar contact to help with the process..: suggesting boats, inspecting them, checking paperwork, organizing surveys, etc, etc.
I will go there myself as well, but I think I could do with some help.
Can you suggest some good, honest brokers (or other people/businesses) in the Mediterranean who would be interested to assist with this..?
The boats I like seem to be spread out along the entire North coast of the Med, from Gibraltar to Turkey.
I guess it would be ideal to identify someone with knowledge and experience across the entire region... But I realize this might be tricky to find. Next best would be to have one or more contacts in each country, I guess.
Either way, any pointers would be appreciated.
Sven

What do you like? Size, value? Mangusta 82 with Arnesons? Flybridge? Sport boat?

They do specialize.

Re: Good yacht brokers in the Mediterranean?

We've dealt with and been personal friends with the folks at Sunbird Yachts in Palma de Mallorca for years. They have offices in Scotland and Turkey as well. I know they're experienced and think they're fair. They work the entire region and have been around for over 30 years. Talk to Nick at 34 971 676392.
