The surveyor, captain, broker, and buyer attend the seatrial. The captain runs the boat, and the owners crew. The captain is usually the owner/seller. The owner/seller must pay for a captain if he/she does not captain. Rarely, the owner/seller may attend and hire a captain.

Wil Lockman in Boston, Massachusetts said: When a broker is representing a seller. What is the normal practice for a sea trial? Will the broker take the prospective buyer on the sea-trial, or will he accompany the actual seller aboard the boat during the sea trial? I can see advantages & disadvantages to both sides. Any have some experiences to share? Thanks!

Typo: I meant the "others crew" meaning the surveyor, broker, and buyer not "owners crew".
