Looking at boats both on the south coast & the Thames recently.......at several Thames brokers,were slightly surprised to be given several bunches of keys, and left to get on with it (they asked for our telephone number). this is convenient for us as buyers:
but what do sellers think? does the "free" berth while you're selling make up for loads of people tramping around your boat each weekend? Has anyone ever had anything go missing/get broken?.
Or is it not ideal, but unavoidable if you want to sell the thing?
