    Default Brokerage rates

    What sort of brokerage rates are people paying? I've just had a broker in the south of France quote me 10%+vat, which seems a bit strong to me; I suppose I was expecting perhaps 5-6%+vat. Interested to know what others are paying, especially Med brokers.

    that seems an awful lot for doing sod all, down in Spain 6 - 8% + vat. However broker in my marina (Navicularia) sold my last boat for 4%+vat.

    Seems expensive. I’ve heard 8% before but it’s ofteb negotiates me down.

    I guess it depends what the broker is going to do for you

    In Italy general rule is 5% by the seller + 5% by the buyer
    but in Italy everything is negociable.

    Correct.
    Weird as it might sound to most folks here, in IT the broker commission is split between buyer and seller.
    And yes, some discount is often negotiated in the process - typically somewhere between 3 and 4% each side, I would say.

    All that aside, spill the beans, JTB: what is there round the corner?

    Forget the brokerage fees and ship it to the states.

    Boat.co.uk or Ancasta will do far better than that won’t they? I think we paid Ancasta 5 or 6 percent (plus VAT) for Breaking Bad - boat went quickly with no problems - good, qualified clients.

    In my experience, initially quoted rates are always negotiable. The most I have paid is 5% +VAT.

    The med has always carried a 10% levy .
    TBH Jimmy I bet your boat would sell very quickly on a site like Boats and Outboards , Apollo Duck etc or even eBay , unless of course you don’t want the hassle .

    don't care/don't know the brokerage rates, but I'd be interested to know what's coming and if it's going back to the UK for "treatment" which gave us a couple of excellent threads back then
