remarkably simple to raise small claims case in England (can all be done online) and only costs about 30... if you loose a genuine case you wouldn't normally be liable for any legal costs in the small claims court, and you will often find just the paperwork is enough to "encourage a moment of clarity" and get a settlement!

yes, whilst the TDA might be something the broker should be concerned about, it doesn't directly help the OP does it? It helps trading standard take action, not the OP get a direct remedy? He'd need to raise a civil action from another country...

To the OP ...contact the trading standards office for the area where you bought the goods. Its free, wont hurt and might help. If you dont try you will never know.
IIRC does it not all go through to some giant call centre covering the whole country? you might have some secret hotline to local help but the general public have to make do with bland generic guidance from someone who is never going to bring about a prosecution. I'm assuming even back in the good old days though your first question would have been what have you done to try and sort this out in case it was a genuine error which can be simply resolved?

I'm sure Poly will correct the errors
I can imagine an interesting legal debate on whether a broker is actually supplying a boat or merely introducing willing buyer to willing seller, and thus use the "Innocent Publication of Advertisement" defence. Don't know if there is any good case law that is comparable - cars are usually owned by the dealer and houses have special legislation of their own...

I phone the broker, i explain my point of view, ask for a full refund, he told me he will try to present my desire to the previous owner, little by little, so that he don't get "hurt"... Still have no news since last friday...

I would follow it with this Friday with an email or recorded letter, that way you have a record of the communications in the event of it going to the next stage
