Should I sell my boat in Puerto Rico, or move it elsewhere to sell?

hi folks, I'd really appreciate some good advice

I have a 1998 Sea Ray Express 440, in reasonable condition, on the hard in Puerto Rico. She is registered in the British Virgin Islands.

Ideally, over the next few months, I'd like to sell her.

With regard to getting the most favorable price for her, and other elements like tax-efficiency, logistics, and ease of administration, would it be better to leave the boat where it is, and sell it through a broker in Puerto Rico?

Or would it be smart to physically move the boat to Florida, the British Virgin Islands, or somewhere else within this region, and use a dealer there?

Thank you!
