Associated Yacht Broker or it’s Appointed Agent, having promoted a boat on its website on the instruction of the owner or that of the owners’ appointed agent, shall be paid the full commission fee on the sale of that boat, however sold whether or not any other agent or broker is involved. If there is no exchange of written instruction contracts then The A.Y.B. Associated Yacht Broker shall be acting solely as an introducer with the singular responsibility to pass on contact details between the client and potential buyers.

All brokerage for trade sellers shall be as an Introducer.The A.Y.B. Associated Yacht Broker acting with a signed instruction contract as a broker, shall not expect nor be required to pass contact details between vendor and potential buyers until the final sale contract is prepared. If the type of brokerage is not specified, then the full commission and other fees as specified below, shall only be paid if The A.Y.B. Associated Yacht Broker or it’s Appointed Agent  has introduced the Buyer. On the sale of the vendor’s boat, the full commission fee of 8% (eight percent) of the Agreed Selling price shall be paid by The Vendor.
