Buying a yacht or boat does not have to be one of those expenses that breaks the bank if you know how to proceed before heading out to see a yacht for sale and writing that check. There are plenty of deals to be had, and each will put some cash back in your pockets that you can use to further your enjoyment of the boating lifestyle. Boatmo has given us a few things to consider when you are looking to get the best possible deal on that boat that you are interested in.
1, Before you write that check, take a deep breath and sleep on the deal one more night. It many cases, it was that last night of really thinking things through that helped to make the decision more clear. One more day won’t hurt, so sleep on it and see how you feel in the morning.
2. Take a look at Craigslist and see if there are any boats in your area and surrounding locations. These are usually some of the best deals because the sellers are so motivated they just want the boat gone. Show up with cash and you can negotiate the boat, accessories, and even the trailer in one huge package deal.
3. Take a day and go to a local boat show. Not only can you come in contact with the best in the business, you are going to be in position to receive some great discounts from the manufacturers. There are also raffles and deals happening all day at the boat show, so you may wind up walking away with more than you thought possible by days end.
4. Facebook is a great place to meet motivated sellers who want to part ways with their boats. Sellers in Facebook have their name out there for everyone to see, so you get that added insurance that they are not going to try and pull a fast one on you. The best part is you can lurk until you see the deal of the century, then you reach out to the seller.
5. One of the best resources for boats is eBay of all things. These sellers rely on their feedback, so they are going to want to make sure you get exactly what you are paying for. If the listing is auction style, you may wind u the high bidder for far less than you even thought possible.
These are just some of the ways to get a great deal on a boat. Take your time and do your homework to score the biggest deals.
