    Between 6-8% with usually a minimum charge if the boat is low value. Suggest you contact YDSA for a list of broker members and guidance on doing business with brokers. RYA also have useful publications on buying and selling SH boats.

    Tranona is on the money as ever. Have a look at my site in the sig below and I may be able to help out a bit on that depending on the boat. You can also try some of the free or nearly free listing sites like Apollo duck and Boats and out boards.
