Buying a boat advice: paperwork and history
If you’ve found the boat of your dreams you’ll be feeling elated and be keen to get on with buying a boat. Don’t.
If it’s a used boat deal, sit down with the broker or seller and ask about paperwork such as proof of ownership, service history and other such boring matters. Paperwork is not why you buy a boat but it might well help you sell it later on.
Documents to ask for:
- Bills of sale
- Proof of VAT paid
- Engine service history
