    With regards to TRUST, surely you know that, whatever profession you are in, you have to earn this before you can sustain a trading partnership. This has always been the case.

    Jonic, as good as your website might be, are you opposed to my suggestions for the Marine Broker industry to become fully trained and examined?
    If so, why??
    I shall not be withdrawing anything.

    You stated publicly do not put your trust in any broker

    Thats your opinion but you have stated it very publicly.

    Would I go on the internet and say don't put your trust in any builder

    Of course not.

    Of course I'm not opposed to your suggestion, I do all of it voluntarily anyway and have a very good reputation for it. I can't do any more because it doesn't exist. What are you trying to imply about me?

    How many brokerage offices have you ever worked in?

    There is no room for bad brokers, but your postings need to consider the effect you may have on the good ones.

    In my own opinion, glynny has had a bad Experiance, and in my opinion I'm not surprised it was with b@*tshed.

    B@*tshed are essentially a franchise are they not? They sell 100s of boats.

    My first boat I listed with them was a waste of time. I asked if I could advertise myself as I needed the money fast for my current boat. I got a laugh but essentially I was allowed to. I rang up to see what was going on after one week and he said no interest. The following week I sold privately informed the nice man at b@*tshed and left it at that. Blow me two weeks later I was getting calls from the broker with offers on the table! Even though I rang him up and said it sold two weeks prior.

    The point being b@*tshed deal with so many boats they don't know if they are coming or going. Again, my own opinion.

    In fairness to jonic (correct me if I'm wrong) he has no more than 15 boats on his books at a time, he has the tender touch of one on one. He specialises in liveaboards and he has been one, so Experiance is vast.

    Jonic is a true broker that knows what he's talking about.

    If I was you I would take it as Experiance, I did with my experiences from the alleged company and I simply won't use them again. Buying or selling. So in the end they have lost out with my potential monies.

    Nope. The only sweeping generalization on this thread did not come from me did it? I said to you earlier we are on the same side, and I meant it. I feel as strongly as you do, perhaps even stronger.

    As to choice of broker a good starting point would be to see if they are members of ABYA http://www.abya.co.uk/index.html

    You had a problem with a specific boat and a specific broker.

    I don't know if the organization you had issues with are members.

    Unless the website has been altered it looks as if a full stop has appeared from space. Above is your original post. Below is the website quote (providing its same boat) pasted from jonics link

    "She looks lovely but could do with a little TLC below to make her a great little boat ready to sail away."

    That changes the sentence completely, and as I read the website the boat needs tlc before she sails away.

    I'm not saying you have not been mislead, I have had bad dealings myself with the said company.

    But that's a bit naughty quoting things that are not true, unless of course the full stop has been removed from the website

    Interesting.

    One would expect that, given the provocative title of the thread, we would have been inundated with Brokers crying 'foul'.

    Maybe they have all PMd the OP - just as he says 196 unknown disenchanted people have!

    One sided accounts of negative experiences (however real, and whatever subject) rarely get very far as there is little constructive to comment on without hearing the other side.

    That's an interesting list with more than a few well known names (well known to me anyway) missing, and at least one where I instantly thought

    Many brokers are members of the BRA (as is the one that is the subject of this thread). ABYA tends to attract individual independent brokers such as John, BRA represents a wider constituency including dealers who buy and sell on their own account. You can see the membership requirements of each on their website.
