How to Buy a Boat – part 1

As in other countries, in Italy 🇮🇹 there is a professional figure who manages the buying and selling of boats, namely the Broker, who is here defined as the Maritime Mediator 🤝

In order to be able to work as a Broker, it is necessary to pass an exam 📚 on nautical mediation which covers both commercial and non-commercial matters. In fact, the recent reform on the Recreational Boating Code has envisaged the introduction of a specific figure for the non-commercial sector, called the Recreational Broker. Although this reform was signed in 2️⃣0️⃣1️⃣9️⃣, a qualifying exam for this specific role has not yet been developed.

The figure that best resembles it is the mediator specialized in yachting 🚤

There are many of them and their role is to keep relations with buyer and seller, protect their needs and try to reach the optimal meeting point for the satisfaction of both 💯!

For this activity they are remunerated by both parties with a percentage commission on the sale price.
