“(2) If the Secretary determines that the bid prices for a vessel received after advertising under paragraph (1) are not acceptable and that readvertising will serve no useful purpose, the Secretary may sell the vessel by negotiation to the highest acceptable bidder if—
“(A) each responsible bidder has been notified of intent to negotiate and has been given a reasonable opportunity to negotiate; and
“(B) the negotiated price is—
“(i) higher than the highest rejected price of any responsible bidder; or
“(ii) reasonable and in the national interest.”
