Boating Website

The new alternative, user-friendly web site for buying and selling boats.

Boats Net is a website for boating enthusiasts, providing various services, and information related to boating and featuring listings of boats for sale, categorized by type, size, price, and location.

Boats Net aims to serve as a comprehensive resource for boaters, offering information and services and a community for enthusiasts to network with each other and enhance their boating experience.

When buying a used boat, there are several important factors to consider to ensure you make a smart and informed decision. Here are some key considerations:

Determine your budget for buying a used boat, including the purchase price, ongoing maintenance, insurance, mooring fees, and any potential upgrades or repairs.
Intended Use:
Consider how you plan to use the boat. Will it be for fishing, cruising, watersports, or something else? The type of boat and its features should align with your intended use.
Boat Type:
Research different types of boats to find one that suits your needs. Consider factors such as size, hull type, propulsion (sail or motor), and features like cabins, decks, and amenities.
Thoroughly inspect the boat for signs of wear and damage. Look for cracks, leaks, corrosion, or any evidence of poor maintenance. Check the engine, hull, electrical systems, and any other components for signs of wear or malfunction.
Service History:
Ask for the boat's service records and maintenance history. A well-documented history can provide insights into how well the boat has been cared for and whether any major repairs or maintenance tasks have been performed.
Sea Trial:
Always conduct a sea trial before finalizing the purchase. Take the boat out on the water to test its performance, handling, and overall condition. Pay attention to how the boat responds to different manouevres and conditions.
Consider hiring a professional marine surveyor to inspect the boat thoroughly. A surveyor can identify any hidden issues or potential problems that may not be apparent to the untrained eye.
Mechanical Inspection:
Consider hiring a professional mechanical surveyor to thoroughly inspect the boat engine(s). A mechanic can identify any hidden issues or potential problems that may not be apparent to the untrained eye.
Title and Documentation:
Verify that the seller has a clear title to the boat and that all documentation, including registration and ownership documents, is in order. Ensure there are no outstanding liens or legal issues associated with the boat.
Be prepared to negotiate the price based on the boat's condition, market value, and any repairs or upgrades that may be needed. Don't hesitate to walk away if the seller is unwilling to negotiate or the boat does not meet your expectations.
Warranty and Guarantees:
Inquire about any warranties or guarantees offered by the seller or manufacturer. Understand what is covered and for how long to ensure you have recourse in case of unexpected issues after the purchase.

By considering these factors and conducting thorough research and inspections, you can make a more informed decision when buying a used boat and avoid potential pitfalls or regrets down the line.
