To Broker or not to Broker, that is the question
I have a 2005 Cape Horn OS on a lot in Ft. Walton Beach. I purchase it last year and have not had near as much time to use it as I thought I would. I know it is hard to justify owning a boat at any time, but this is not even close. I have been able to fish about 5 times in the 10 months.
I have decided to sell the boat. I live 320 miles away and get down one weekend per month on average. Given these circumstances, should I try to sell the boat on my own or get a broker? What are the pros and cons of a broker?

I sold mine through Angler's Edge; they advertise on the Hull Truth forum. They charge a one-time fee of around $250 and they advertise it on most of the major sites until it sells. They'll update pics and info as you want them to, they can even help with financing if needed and they take no commission. They advertised my Everglades for a little over three years before it finally sold.

If you can find a onetime broker then that would be your best option. Unlike consignment shops who charge you monthly fees and, like Guns said, might take a few months to years.
