Buyers Contract

Hey all,

I'm seriously looking now for a used Cat in the 32-40' range and am wondering about making an offer when I find something I like.

I'm sure that any broker I run into will have a standard contract that they like to use and will offer to me. I'm equally sure that the contract they like to use will be designed to protect the interests of the broker mainly and the seller to some degree with me, the buyer, as an after thought.

Anyone have an example of a good contract that they have used when purchasing a yacht?

Any pitfalls I should look out for?

I know most aren't lawyers but I appreciate any help you can offer.

From my recent boat purchase. If you are not using a broker, make sure you do your homework. Check for liens etc on the boat.
