What does a boat broker do?

The main job of a brokerage is to match up buyers and sellers. Like a real estate broker doesn't actually own the home they are advertising, brokers don't actually own the boats and yachts that they advertise for sale.

Sellers depend on the broker to advertise their boat or yacht for them and find interested buyers. Once a willing buyer is found, the broker will handle all the contracts, escrow, coordination, documentation, and closing.

What are the benefits to using a broker?

When you choose to sell your boat or yacht with POP Yachts, we will:

...meet you at your boat or yacht to take 100+ photos, shoot a video walk-through, and take down an inventory of features and electronics.
...build an online advertisement, including writing a unique description that guides potential buyers through your vessel.
...respond to all phone calls, texts, and web inquiries (leads) from potential buyers.
...identify and eliminate scammers and non-qualified buyers looking for a free joy ride.
...match your vessel to existing buyers in our database of potentials (tens of thousands).
...obtain a signed Purchase & Sale Agreement (offer) from qualified interested buyers.
...communicate counter-offers to buyers as necessary.
...meet potential buyers at your boat for showings and/or inspections.
...facilitate a smooth closing process, including the safe and secure distribution of funds and transfer of ownership.
...ensure a smooth pickup and transition to the new owner.

When you choose to buy your boat or yacht through POP Yachts, we will:

...assist you in your search to help you find the perfect vessel.
...present all offers between you and the seller.
...meet you on location for showings and/or inspections.
...meet you at completion of the sale for pickup of your new boat or yacht.
...keep all funds safe in our secure escrow accounts during the closing process.
...help with state registration and documentation (where available).


Selling my RV was a challenging prospect. I tried on my own for many months using social media, online selling websites and TRV. Even though I got numerous responses, the buyers were primarily resellers trying to buy it for cash, but at a fraction of what I was asking. I did receive a call from POP last February and after listening to their process and checking them out, I decided to give them a try. My local representative, Steve Borry, was very responsive, setting me up, explaining the system in great detail and getting my RV on the market. Initially, the inquiries were slow, but after a few months they picked up dramatically. I had oodles of prospects, but no one made an offer until this February. The initial buyer was very interested, made a long trip to see the vehicle, loved what he saw and made an offer. Unfortunately, his wife got nervous, due to the size and complexity of the motor home and they withdrew that offer. Ironically, they stayed on the potential buyers list, as the husband was still interested and I suspect was trying to convince his wife. Within a couple of weeks I was informed of another prospect and within a day, had an offer which was acceptable to me. The inspection took place within a week, the buyer decided to go forward, a contract was signed, finalized and closed within 3 weeks. Steve Borry was always available, sent me weekly updates, attended the inspection and interacted with the buyers representative and the main office handling the Closing. Mel Headrick and others assisting with finalizing the deal and closing were easy to work with, communicative, timely, professional and efficient. Considering we are in the throws of the Coronavirus situation they readily dealt with banks, motor vehicle agencies and others to complete this transaction. The Closing was completed ahead of schedule. Their fees are fair and attention to detail is excellent!! Selling my RV took longer than I expected and I'm pleased that it has now concluded!! Obviously, I am very pleased with POP and highly recommended them. Thanks to all involved at POP!! Steve Nelson
