Vessels "For Sale"
"It's been a while since you've had a survey. Markets and the economy changes which will effect what your boat is worth. If you're going to sell your boat, you'll want to know everything about it before you place with a broker. Some brokers will use smoke and mirrors when selling a boat, so let Coastal Marine Consultants educate you. Now with survey in hand you can control the broker and be guaranteed you'll get what your boat is worth. Don't let the broker use smoke and mirrors on you". - Captain Bob
