Buying a boat is a big decision that requires research before taking action. When broken down into smaller decisions, though, you'll find it much easier to decide on, shop for and buy a boat that is the best fit for you.
The best two days of your life is the day you buy a boat and the day you sell it.
The best two days of your life come every weekend when you take the boat out with family and friends!
Admit it—you’ve watched people in boats enjoying themselves out on the water and thought "I wish I was out there." Well, it’s time to stop wishing and start boating, because NOW is a great time to buy a boat! Why, you ask?
Incredible deals. We want to sell boats, and we'll be happy to work with you with special offers and the best deals to get you the boat of your dreams. There’s no time like the present. Boating is the perfect way to spend quality time with family and friends—and that’s an investment that never loses its value.
Shop new first
It might sound counter-intuitive, but as with a car, there are pros and cons to both new and pre-owned boats. When buying boats, we recommend shopping new first even if you’re on a tight budget, for a number of reasons:
■You’ll see the most current technology, latest design and naval architecture
■Electronics will be state of the art with the newest software
■New mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems(MEP)
Have a plan
Know what you want and what you can afford. Do your financial homework and run a budget --- before you buy a boat. It’s the smart thing to do and will save you a lot of time. Be sure to allow for general maintenance, storage, insurance and other important add-on products you may require such as extended warranties.

If I decide to buy a pre-owned boat, are there any extra things to consider?
Pre-owned boats can be a viable boat buying option, especially for the individual who doesn't know what he or she wants to do on the boat, or for families with tight budgets. Even if you are considering buying a pre-owned boat, it is a good idea to shop new first so you can better compare boats.. Boatshows are a great boat buying resource to see what is out there and to create your short list of the critical or important traits of a boat. You will use this list to narrow down the vast amount of pre-owned boats available.
Whether you're buying your pre-owned boat online, in the newspaper, or by visiting local boat dealerships - once you find your boat, but before you buy - get a marine survey of the boat. There is no question that the expense will be money well spent. (The cost, which is generally per linear foot, will vary by market; you may want to get quotes from several surveyors).
Often, structural defects or mechanical problems on boats that are old or have not been cared for properly, may be difficult to detect. A marine survey is sort of like a home inspection. The surveyor will conduct a thorough comparison of every part of the boat - from the engine to the electrical system, the hull to the dash - and give you an analysis of the results.
Depending on the results, you can benefit from this information with power to re-negotiate the buying price of the boat, knowledge to step away from the deal altogether if needed, or the peace of mind knowing that nothing will need repair in the foreseeable future.
