Looking for a new or used boat? Working with a knowledgeable Chesapeake Bay area broker can get you aboard the boat of your dreams faster and with far fewer headaches than going through the process on your own. For one, he or she knows what's on the market and where. And given the often customized features on even the most standard one-design boats, a broker is your best bet for matching your want-list to what's available. Even better, you can usually rely on a broker's practiced eye for that "first" survey to determine from the get-go if the boat you're looking at is worth its price tag (and the cost of a professional survey-required by most loan companies). This section was prepared by the marketing department of Chesapeake Bay Magazine.
