I have a question for you. Did he get the price
the seller wanted? That is the only way the broker represented the seller. If he sold you the boat way under the asking price
why are you grumbling? If he got a price the seller was happy with he did his job. And he'll get his commission, which is all he cares about. He's not there to babysit you, he's there to sell the boat, which he did.
I'm not agreeing with the way you were treated, I have met a-hat brokers, too. But his only real job is to sell the boat.
This is a rhetorical question, and I'll probably get nailed for it anyway but here goes:
At anytime do you think that you went forward with the deal just to show him that you were a serious person? "I'll show this b%@$rd I'm a serious sailor!"
