From memory 5% +VAT but my memory's often faulty!

Give Stewart Thornley at Lymington Marine Sales a call.

We charge 3% plus vat if we introduce a buyer. If you would like us to try sell your boat please feel free to ask.

We won't tie you into a single agency contract, all we ask, if you sell your rib elsewhere you let us know and we will remove it from our listing.

Thank you,

Wow, you guys sure like to work for nothing! I think you'll find most brokerage rates are round about 7.5% with reductions for higher value boats. Have seen 10%!!!!

Our rate is 6%, but it depends on what the seller has planned themselves. Sometimes we just help with valuations and a few advertising recommendations for the price of a beer or two.

A full brokerage package* (ie 10% worth) is getting rare these days, most people are able to sort out the photos and ads themselves.

Edit: A good specialist broker will not need to advertise the boat, they will call a couple of potential buyers and have an idea of the market appetite inside a week.

Edit 2: * By package I mean:- Finding a buyer, carrying out viewings and arranging for surveys, negotiating and then handling the funds through a client account. Possibly even sorting our delivery etc.
