So you’ve made the decision to buy a boat? That is the first step. Buying a boat is a huge investment and like with any other invest you need to ensure you’ve weighed up all the pros and cons of each boat to find one that suits your needs. Ask yourself questions such as; do you want a power boat or a sailing boat and how much can you afford to spend on the boat?
Unlike with cars, boats are not just for transportation, they are for those who want to get away to a place where landlubbers can’t go. The love of lakes, bays, rivers and even seas are available for you to explore when you own your own boat. Some people buy boats for the comradery, joining yacht clubs and sailing crews while others buy them for the purpose of spending time with their mates or family. Whether your reasons are the former or the latter, buying a boat is a lifestyle choice.
Type of Boat:
The next step after you have the decision to buy the boat is to determine the type of boat you require to satisfy your needs. There are 3 main options or activities for boating, namely; Cruising, Water sport and last but not least, fishing. While some boats can be used for two or all three of these activities, there are boats that are primarily used for certain activities.
In the case of boats and yachts size does matter. The bigger the boat the more features it has on it, like; a kitchen, toilet and a cabin on the other hand one of the disadvantages to buying a bigger boat is they have more systems to understand and operate, and they may not be tailorable, and of course, they also cost more, both to buy and to operate.
Like with every other thing you purchase it is important to consider your budget when purchasing your boat. Not only whether you’re able to buy it but whether you’ll be able to maintain it after the purchase. Remember that because a boat is such a big investment it needs to be insured. Depending on how deep your pocket is you can choose whether to buy the boat new or pre-owned.
