Call Jim or Beth Maier at By Owner Yachts in downtown annapolis. He has several plans to chose from. Full brokerage at 10% or a 3% plan where you show your boat and he does all the paperwork, advertising and inital phone calls to weed out tire kickers. He will give you a list of comps to what they have sold for as well as what others are listed for. He will also get your boat advertised in a bunch of places like boattraderonline.com, boat shopper magazine, and a buch of others.

I used the flex plan of 3% and it worked well for me. I saved 7% over full brokerage and all I had to do was show my boat. He also helped me buy my next boat and did the deal as a trade in. I was able to save on paying sales tax on my current boat as you only pay the difference in equity of the boats in tax. Since I only paid 3% in brokerage fees yet saved the 5% in sales tax, I was up 2% on the transaction. The price he got on my current boat was about the same deal I was able to work on my own (he speaks to the sales company and acts as their salesman and just gets the commission their in-house rep would get).

His number is 410.280.3212 and webste is http://www.byowneryachts.com
