    Boat Buying Tips

    It's been proven that recreational boating helps improve your quality of life. Boating offers a great outlet for entertainment, reduces stress, and provides enriching opportunities for self-discovery. Here are a few simple tips to help you make the right choice when buying a boat:

    How You'll Use It
    Decide first in how you intend to use the boat. Do you want it strictly for wakeboarding or for fishing miles offshore? Do you have kids that like to do a little bit of everything? Will it mainly be an in-land fishing boat or do you want to overnight with the family as well? These factors will help determine your boat and engine type.

    Where You'll Use It
    Larger, more wide open bodies of water require bigger boats. Larger boats typically handle rough water better than smaller boats. Determining whether you'll use the boat in saltwater and/or freshwater also has an impact on your decision making. Figuring out where you'll use the boat most often will also help you make the right buying decision. 

    Where You'll Keep It
    Planning to keep it at your home? Are there any covenants and restrictions in your neighborhood that prevent you from storing the boat on your property? Trailering it to and from the water?

    Marina or Dry Storage?
    Check with the marina to see what size and hull configuration limitations they may have. Sometimes pontoons, boats with radar arches and towers, as well as boats with extended decks and swim platforms may limit who can accommodate your boat. It's best to have your storage situation figured out before you make a buying purchase.

    How Much Can You Afford?
    Remember to take into consideration the following costs above and beyond the actual price of the boat: insurance, boat and trailer registration fees, taxes, fuel, docking/moorage fees, storage, safety equipment, accessories, trailer size, and boat maintenance and repair costs will vary.

    With the purchase of your new or pre-owned boat, one of the smartest things you can do to protect your investment is to purchase an extended warranty protection plan. Waiting until the manufacturer's warranty runs out can leave you with costly repairs if your vessel is left unprotected.

    Dealer Reputation
    If you're purchasing a new boat, or a pre-owned boat through a dealer or broker, make sure their service department is reputable and has the ability to turn repairs around quickly. Checkout our customer-rated Service Directory for the latest information on service providers near you.
