I bought a boat they were brokering. Everything went as stated, great communicaton throughout the purchase, no issues. I do think the seeller was tired of them but hey, he sold his boat. I was happy and I can only assume he was as well.

They are annoying, but I told them if they sold my seacat and I got the exact amount I wanted even after fees, to go for it. Also stated that I would still try to sell the boat myself. After a month, my boat was gone, and money was in my account. I got the amount I was asking. Yes, there was a struggle and so called "miscommunication" over sellers fees and what not. They didn't want to give me the amount they agreed upon, but eventually, they gave up on some of their fees because they knew the goof was their bad and they wanted a boat sale instead of being greedy and ruining a sale.

Overal, was not a smooth process, but as a seller, the boat was gone, for a price I deemed fair.

Not to mention, the sales guys are uneducated and do not know boats like they say they do. Inexperienced to say the least.

So if it's a FL boat, how does popyachts' "closing department" break out the hull and trailer value? Does the buyer/seller have a say in the matter.

In FL you only pay tax on the hull value and trailer.
So for example a $30k boat could be broken out $10,000 hull, and $20,000 motors, where you would only pay tax on 10 grand.

The sales guy I spoke to one time was based in Texas and had no idea.

Thanks!

There are hundreds of Yacht sales people out there, so if you are not spamming, why hi-jack this thread by posting off topic about something no one asked about?

Seriously? I guess I should apologize for sharing my positive experience with a company that provides the same service as the company he is inquiring about? I'm new to THT. I thought I was trying to be helpful. You guys are pretty touchy about who posts what.

Don't pay attention to them, this whole thread was mostly about how bad POP yachts is, there was only one other broker/boat listing agent mentioned here, you did good referring someone you feel good about

I met up with United in Jersey, thought they were very professional

I've found POP to be annoying at best and disagreeable at worst.

Then again, I've never tried to sell anything through them; Merely have been a victim of their overzealous Blitzsale tactics. *shudder*

As they are still in business, someone has to use/do business with them.

I have spoken with them and have very mixed feelings about them.
