I don't know who it is but yes in a licensed state if so that broker has a duty to disclose. In my brevity what I meant to say was if there's more than the typical concern about the condition of the boat then a sea trial before inspections is a reasonable buyer contingency. In this case I can only determine based on the posts I've read that the buyer was aware of enough to have gone that route. If the broker pushed not to then he did harm to the buyer. If the buyer made the decision to move forward despite what was disclosed to him and/or what he discovered himself then it's his baby. And sometimes they do.
