Our intention was always to sell the boat over a beer and a handshake! Wouldn’t life be so much simpler if all transactions were like that.
However it is a significant purchase for anyone and after investigating it more we decided it best to use a broker for all the legalities, money transfer and paperwork. This means both the buyer and seller are fully protected and can have the confidence that the exchange of ownership will be done correctly.
We have chosen Peter Preston from Nicole Associates to organize this for us, he is a wealth of information on the whole process so we are very happy to have him help us with this. When we get to the point of money exchange and contract signing he will be dealing with the process.
