Broker’s Corner


Tidewater Marina is the southern Chesapeake headquarters of North Point Yacht Sales, with other offices in Annapolis and Charleston. The senior broker in Portsmouth is Peter Bass, an experienced cruising sailor, powerboater and boat builder who served as Production Manager of Hinckley Yachts in Southwest Harbor, Maine in the 70’s. Here’s this issue’s tip:

Selecting a broker

An experienced yacht owner looking for the next boat often knows exactly the type of boat he or she wants; for others, there are a lot of questions to be answered to work toward a selection that fits the need. In either case, the goals are the same: to find the right boat at a fair price, to carefully review its condition and equipment, and to get it into the right condition and location to use it. It will require surveys, documentation services, insurance considerations, financing in many cases, decisions on updates to equipment and electronics, and possibly modifications to fit the new owner’s use.

The internet age gives you the feeling that you can get all of the information and knowledge on your own, and it is certainly true that there is vastly more detailed information (and misinformation) available than before. This makes a knowledgeable broker more important than ever; we can sift through the forest of data out there and provide a more sophisticated analysis than in the pre-internet period, and give you much more than the reams of data and opinion floating around in cyberspace.
