Awful broker! - are there really RYA and BMF rules of sale?
I went to a certain marina to view a 5-6m Humber. Exact size I'll keep quiet.
Turned up after a 2hr drive they knew we were doing to be told, they can't find the keys, there's no service history but thats fine as no boats have it. Really?
then saw the lower leg's been resprayed and the trailers rusted all over, wheels and bearings knackered.
Plus the transoms cut away to put a standard length shaft on, not XL. I asked and he said it was factory fit. Looks nothing like any transom I've seen on a Humber, about 2" freeboard!
When I asked if we could do an engine test he stated it was the british marine federation and RYA rules of sale that you agree a price, then pay 10% and then "they" do an engine test for which we pay. If any issues you get your money back.LOL I argued his point until blue in the face and then just walked. Anyone know anything about this practice?
Awful broker, Steer clear. Oh! And he wanted £11k ROFL, a new one with a 75hp and 5yr warranty is £17k
Buzzed back and had a run out for an hour on the strait to calm down and then home again.
