I talked to them briefly. They wanted the opportunity to sell my boat. What questions did you have? Buxton Marine (across the street) is the best in the business in my opinion.

Several years back I went in there to see if they would be interested in buying a used boat that I was trying to sell. They weren't interested, so I never really had any dealings with them. However, I couldn't help but get that stereotypical "used car salesman" vibe from them. Again, I have nothing to substantiate my opinion of them other than the general vibe I got from talking with them. I personally would look elsewhere when buying or selling a boat.

That is the same vibe I got when dealing with them. I agree with Richard.

The story is....
I found a boat for sale via the owner, made an offer and the owner declined the offer. A month later (2 weeks ago) I emailed the owner and again inquired on the boat. I was responded to via e-mail to contact ____. I made the contact to McGoy's Toys and began to negotiate. Salesguy, was less than helpful and began telling me what could not be done vs what could be done.. I wanted to show up (18hrs 1 way) pay hte gents loan off at the the bank and leave w/ the boat. This was not an option. He advised i would have to pay him and then he would pay the loan off, then w/i 30-45 days i would receive the title. He was also trying to charge me sales tax on an out-of-state boat.. Just a very bad experience and I personally would not reccommend them to anyone. I finally conned the owner to call me and he agreed to accept payment and leave the broker out of it.. However, after all the hurdles I had to cross, I just gave up...

Tickle,

I am sorry to hear that. Did you not end up getting the boat?

That sucks Josh. Though It means you'll find something you like better even closer to you!

Be very careful with these so-called boat brokers. I had a really bad experience with one in Austin,TX. Tried to pursue them thru legal means and got nowhere, and out lots of $$$. They are legitament thieves!!!!
