I would enjoy your take on this after you have sold a boat yourself.
I never held brokers in high regard....and I suppose I still don't. That being said I have a MUCH better understanding of what they have to deal with, and have much more compassion for them than I did before I sold my friends Tayana 42.
I dealt with tire kickers, dreamers, the clueless, the idiotic and the scum of the earth who hoped someone had cancer and was dying. Literally!!!
I happily ended up stumbling across a great fit who is now a highly valued friend. And another who just missed the sale
but is also a good friend.
But they were maybe 2% of what I had to deal with.
Before that I was at the point of working out how to strip the vessel and scuttle her offshore
rather than have her end up in the hands of one of the affore mentioned.
Thats how disgusted I was, and I do not believe in scuttling perfectly good vessels.
So, after that little rant....yes brokers fees are high.....but I wouldn't consider for a split second being a broker for ten times their fees.
You may, and I say may, be in a little better demographic buyer wise being a high dollar vessel. But perhaps not....perhaps it will be worse.
Thats my 2 cents. Have fun. And I sincerely hope you are not selling your vessel because of health
issues, unlike some you are about to come in contact with.
