With such a vast array of floating craft to choose from, it can become quite a daunting task for many people to get to grips with as to where to start. At www.boatsforsaleworldwide.com
we want both buyers and sellers to have an enjoyable experience browsing through our site.
To make this happen we have devised a set of guidelines for both sellers and buyers alike. We hope you will find them both informative and helpful as well as making life so much easier for both parties when making a transaction.
Guidelines For Boat Buyers
1) Your Budget
This is obviously the commanding factor when purchasing your boat.
There are options and considerations to be aware of here. One such option would be to be able to purchase a second-hand boat that needs attention.
This can be a good option if you either have the technical or practical know how to remedy or restore anything that needs to be addressed. Perhaps you have a specialist that you know who can assist you in these matters. If so, he or she would also be able to ask the right sort of questions that you may not have thought of due to lack of technical knowledge.
If you are new to the marine experience we have some nautical terminology with meanings. This is designed for the real beginners so that more confidence can be gained when talking to sellers who are so used to talking the language that you may not even understand. Rather than allowing such jargon to go over your head, please tell them where or when you do not understand them. Generally sellers are very patient and will enlighten you accordingly.
Besides the cost of the boat itself, your budget should also take into consideration other additional expenditure and other on going bills such as:
• Marina - Mooring Fees.
• Fuel - Day to Day running costs.
• Survey - If needed ( plus the cost of any the faults exposed. )
• Repairs and Maintenance.
• The cost of travelling to and fro your boat.
• Moving your new purchase to its new home.
• The cost of Finance
• Life jacket / Flares / Safety Aids/ Navigational Aids.
• Any other requirements such as Radar/ Fish Finder etc.
As you can see it’s very much a balancing act to ensure you cover all the important elements of being able to have the pleasure of your purchase rather than enduring the frustration of possessing your much loved dream without the ability of making good use of it.
Further guidelines below, that are designed to help you make the correct decision, may also reflect upon your overall budget. Our dedicated staff here at www.boatsforsaleworldwide.com have many years of practical marine experience. You can therefore be assured of high quality friendly, patient and professional help if you really get stuck.
One final important cost to consider is the actual fee for a trial run. You will be expected to pay for the boat to be lifted from dry dock, where relevant, to the water and its return.
2) Reason to Purchase a Boat
What will be the main reason for using the boat?
If you have a partner with whom you wish to share this experience then you may need to discuss this with him or her as he or she will also want to enjoy the pleasure of it.
For example, you may want to use the boat for some active fishing whilst your partner may just enjoy sunbathing on the deck.
This arrangement will immediately remove a standard fishing boat from the equation as you will need to consider the ambience that your partner requires as well as your own.
If it’s for pleasure fishing days only on short trips you will probably require a boat with all the necessary facilities and accessories for your Angling pursuit with not such a large sumptuous cabin area.
On the other hand if you are going on holiday with your boat on fairly long trips and fishing is an “additional extra” pastime, then you will be looking more at the living quarters and deck areas to provide you with the leisurely ambience that you seek.
If you are looking to become a Yacht racing enthusiast then you would be wise to join a Yachting Club, read up various Yachting Magazines and start modestly in terms of speed requirements. Here, your handling of the boat comes into play and like anything else you really do need to study and read as much as you can on the subject so that you can go through this learning curve in a smooth and successful manner. As you become more proficient at your sport you will want to take the next step. We have clients that return to us having bought their first yacht and become one of our sellers whilst taking advantage of browsing around for their next upgrade. Here, under one roof, the two transactions can be completed with ease and simplicity.
If you opt for a modest Sailboat you will save on mooring charges by towing it yourself to and fro your home. The cost of the trailer and towing fixtures and fittings to your vehicle, however, will need to be taken into consideration. The beauty of this arrangement is that you are free to drive to where you wish as opposed to being committed to one particular marina or jetty.
A good comparison is the freedom and flexibility of towing a caravan as opposed to a static.
Whatever boat you choose, you will need all the necessary legal requirements and navigational skills for whatever craft you embark upon. Different skills will be required to learn from Motor Boats as opposed to Yachts, for example. Sailing is an art in itself and brings its own pleasures to many enthusiasts.
www.boatsforsaleworldwide.com is here to inspire you, motivate you and help you to make the right decision, especially if you are new to this exciting, yet often relaxing pastime.
With your budget in mind, browse around our site by either completing the search box for anything specific, or click on to any of the headings of the various types of boats available where further details will become apparent.
These guidelines are here to help you have an enjoyable selling experience that is shared with your buyer. By setting sensible standards that both parties agree to, you can be assured of a much more satisfying transaction without any come-backs.
1) Good Quality Pictures
Care in taking good quality pictures is very important. Also, please make sure that your picture is a genuine picture of your boat and not a “Stock” photo from the manufacturer.
If there are any outstanding features worthy of a picture then include them. A picture is worth a thousand words.
By the same token there may be areas requiring attention. A photo will allay any fears or disappointment later on. Your picture should be a showcase offering good value for money.
2) Talk The Same Language
If you really want to succeed in selling your boat then please don’t just assume your next buyer is going to be a knowledgeable sailor. If you have some technical specification of the boat that you feel is going to be one of the major features then by all means promote those features in your description but convert them to a benefit for your prospect. A feature is what it is and a benefit is what it does for the customer. If your prospect is blinded by a scientific jargonistic set of technical spec. that is not translated into a benefit, you will be less likely to make the sale.
Keep it simple and clear and you will get a much better responce .
3) Be Patient when selling a boat
has some spectacular offers for new first time sellers. This includes the first 6 months free
advertising. From the genuine buyers’ point of view, if they are going to part with their hard earned cash, they will be very careful in making their choices and more time will be taken before they make a commitment. Hence the 6 month offer.
Being patient regarding the time it takes to sell your boat is one thing. Being patient with your prospective customer when they are in contact with you is even more important. It is critical that any content you place into your new advert is unique , by this we mean do NOT just copy and paste your details from an advert you have placed on another boat sale site. Why ? well simply Google will look at it being copy content and say to it self - this seller is not really that concerned
You are well advised to look at our GUIDELINES FOR BUYERS
to understand more clearly what their expectations are going to be. Buy and sell new and used commercial and domestic fishing boats registered length from 8m to 10m. Including potter, netter, crabber, trawler, shrimper, dredger, creel boats going to be.
Of course you can expect to receive enquiries from “lookers” "dayreamers"and you never really know who is a “looker” "daydreamer" or who is a “potential buyer”. Treat everyone as a potential buyer and help them with anything that is relevant to the sale of your boat. When it becomes apparent that they are beginning to seek general information that has no relevance to the sale of your boat, you are well advised to quickly signpost them to “an expert or organisation that knows” rather than get embroiled in a long winded informative chat that is going to waste your time and perhaps prevent you from answering another call that could be from your genuine buyer.
Your “looker” will actually thank you for pointing them in a direction where they will glean more informative knowledge elsewhere. Generaly peopl who ask to many questions are not serious buyers , they will ask the serious stuff after viewing the boat if they are realy intrested .
This goes for picture collecters ! Have you got any more pictures ? well if you have uploaded a reasonable amount to your advert and you get asked this question , then we will leave it to you to make your mind up with what your dealing with ! But it is usualy a time waster.
