    I'm in the San Francisco Bay Area and I'm getting ready to put my 1990 3888 on the market. This is the first time I've sold a boat through a broker. Does anyone have any advice on dealing with yacht brokers (agreements, time on market, anticipated sales price, or just general advice).

      Trust them about as far as you can throw them. You may even want to have a surveyor do a look over of your boat so that you aren't surprised, or if you are surprised, by a buyers survey report.

        Get in touch with NeilW here on BOC, he's a broker in Alameda. He has a good reputation here, and he's a personal friend to me and others here. He can represent you, or just offer advice or answer your questions.
