Re: Sailing the Pacific Puddle Jump While Filming a TV Show - Advice ?

Thanks guys. My broker just emailed me that I shouldn't post about the situation online or the Mexican brokers might get together and black ball me. The thing is I wonder how people learn from our collective mistakes if we don't discuss them. I didn't name names...at least I don't think so. First off, I would say that if you are going to write an offer on a remote boat, I would recommend having someone do an initial inspection of the boat for you before you fly down, including more and better pictures, specifically of areas or details that could be an issue. It would have been cheaper for me to do that. Incidentally, I used the surveyor the broker in MX recommended. I don't want to get him into trouble, so I'll leave out what he said. He didn't charge me for looking at the boat if that's any indication. Mind you we weren't there long.

zeehag, which broker are you referring to?

I think this may be Ray:

Buy or Sell a Boat - San Carlos Yacht Sales

Okay. Think I found him. Maztalan Yacht Brokers. Well I haven't been given any more boats to see while here. I guess my broker is losing patience too. I'll check his site and see what he has. I'll probably scoot to Florida if I can't get an answer on writing an offer on another in Calif. Interestingly, a boat in Florida that I wrote an offer on last week, that did not even respond and later came up sold, is back on the market for $15,000 more. Not sure if it's a flip or the owner just got enough action to warrant increasing the price. Same broker though. Strange business this boat thang.

Funny business for sure. Hard to believe you wouldn't even get a response. If you and your broker want an honest opinion of any yachts in Lauderdale or maybe larger South Florida, feel free to send me a pm. I've seen much of what is here or if not don't mind previewing yachts for future knowledge. Interesting to follow the trevails of your yacht search. Hang in there.
