Buying a boat advice: get on the water
Once you have a feel for the boats and brokers that offer what you want, it’s time to get out on the water and test your sea legs before you buy a boat.
Pictures may tell a thousand words but there is no substitute for getting up close and personal with a boat.
There are a number of options for getting out on the water. For example, you might decide to charter a boat for a weekend or more. This way you’ll really get a feel for what owning a boat will be like and if you go with family and friends, get an idea of how much space you need.
However, if you’re set on a boat then get down to your local broker for a test run on your boat of choice. Once you’ve found a broker or two that you feel comfortable with, you can keep an eye on all their new boats here – just use the broker search option.
