If you are looking for a job as yacht broker, that is go to work for some brokerage office, I think the going will be rough. If you become an independent yacht broker, with a firm that is more international, one that you can work anyplace, and has a very strong support base, you can do well, as long as you are not dependent on people walking through the front door, and are shown how to develop business your business.
