need purchase and sales agreement

Hi all;

My wife and I made an offer on a privately listed boat, and the seller has accepted. I would like to put our offer in writing now. I found one agreement that assumes there is a broker involved. Does anyone have one written for private parties?

The boat and all parties are in North Carolina.

I'll tell you all of the details when we are further along in the process!

Before everyone jumps in and tells you to get a lawyer, a broker, a masater marine surveyor and a priest before buying...

We did our own sale. We did not escrow any funds, we made a deposit by cashier's check which the buyer agreed to hold until the final exhcange date. We made our inspections and we brought the balance by a second cashier's check.

We used a purchase agreement that I modified from a template for an aircraft sale. The agreement states who does what and when and what happens if the sale falls through. We also made a bill of sale for the final exchange.

Admittedly the amounts were not large and we were well within our risk tolerance zone.

You are welcome to them without warranty, express or implied.

Let me know.
