Comparing the boats you’re interested in is an essential part of the boat buying process.
As with any significant purchase, it is important to do as much research as possible before buying a boat.
There are a number of factors to consider and compare when looking for a boat:
- intended usage
- boat type
- construction material
- engine and/or sails options
- electronics packages
- trailer and tow weight
- new vs used; and of course
- price and value for money.
Another very important, yet often overlooked consideration, is aftersales service, warranty and support.
