If you have owned a large boat
and know what to expect, no biggie. If you were like I was and knew nothing, a broker
would be a life saver. I bought my boat
without a broker and had a really rough time. Horrible actually. I went into the purchase
blindly and at the mercy of the insurance/finance companies. I also needed a Captains check out to operate the boat. There was loads of info I knew nothing about till it was too late. I was so tired of hearing the phrase "Oh By the Way" you will need this or that. The next boat I know.
