As Lead Broker Brighton Boat Sales may appoint another Agency as Sharing Broker in accordance with BMF/ABYA Codes of Practice. An offer having been made and accepted in principle for the sale of a yacht or cruiser, the purchaser shall then sign a standard Customer Order or Sale Agreement form.

Brokerage shall be payable by the vendor to Brighton Boat Sales and shall become due when the purchaser shall have accepted or be deemed to have accepted the yacht or cruiser.

Brokerage fees, together with any associated mooring, storage, service, title transfer and documentation charges may be retained by Brighton Boat Sales out of any monies paid to them by the purchaser. Mooring and storage charges are payable by the vendor monthly in advance until the boat is sold or removed from the premises – credit will be given for any fees prepaid applicable to berthing after the completion of the sale. In the case of a boat being withdrawn from sale at any time, sold privately or by another broker, any free period of berthing given will be chargeable at the current rate. Mooring and/or storage accommodation is provided in accordance with the General and Special Conditions of the marina operator.

Brighton Boat Sales reserve the right to carry out, at the vendor’s expense, any work necessary to ensure that the boat conforms to the regulations of statutory undertakings and can be displayed for sale in a safe, clean and fully operational state at all times.

A British Registered vessel will be sold as such and Brighton Boat Sales are entitled to withhold funds, acting as stakeholder, until the necessary documentation has been completed to enable title to be transferred to the new owner.

All business is undertaken on the Terms of Business published by the BRITISH MARINE FEDERATION as displayed on our premises. The following are brought to your attention:

We, and our employees, accept no responsibility for loss, damage or delay arising from any cause whatsoever unless such loss, damage or delay was caused by or result from our negligence or deliberate act or that of those for whom we are responsible. Subject to that exception, all vessels and gear are repaired, worked on, moved, stored or otherwise managed and kept at the sole risk of the Owner . . .
In the interest of safety and expedience, we reserve the right to move any vessel and/or gear at our discretion . . . .
All persons using part of the premises and/or facilities for whatever purpose and whether by invitation or otherwise, do so at their own risk, unless any injury or damage to person or property sustained within the premises and/or facilities was caused by, or resulted from, our negligence or deliberate act or that of those for whom we are responsible. . . . . .

Customers should therefore ensure that their vessels and/or property are adequately insured against all risks including loss or damage whilst viewing: they should also ensure that they are themselves adequately insured against third party risks as they may be liable for damage caused by their vessels, themselves or their crew whilst on or about the premises.
