Buying a Boat: New vs Used

Posted by Mark Edwards on Feb 27, 2020 10:13:20 AM

The dilemma sounds familiar. Is it better to buy a new boat or a used boat? While there is no single “right” answer that works for every boat buyer, certain factors may drive your final decision.

Other boat buyers elect to avoid the initial value depreciation and may even acquire a well-maintained used boat for less that may also have a few more accessories.

If you are not sure which is the better option for you, here are some thoughts to consider while making your choice.

The types of boats and yachts tend to fall into three general categories, although more than one activity can be enjoyed on many.

Shopping for a Boat - Tips for New Buyers

Posted by Gail Farias on Oct 18, 2019 10:11:36 AM

Whether an experienced owner or a first-time buyer, shopping for a boat is a major undertaking. Sometimes first-time buyers react to their initial excitement without fully considering what they need, how big the boat should be, the age and condition, ease of operation, maintenance, and where it will be kept. 

Also, you need to first determine how much you plan to pay and how you expect to finance the boat. Impulsive buyers frequently bear that nagging concern that they overpaid after buying the first boat they inspected.
