If you’re new to boating you may well have a few questions about buying a boat and properly taking care of it. We’ve put together some answers to a few of the queries we hear most often – read on to find out more.
A brand new boat is a great idea if you know exactly what you want and are planning to keep your boat for some time. The benefits of choosing a brand new boat include:
✓ Ability to choose a vessel that matches your specifications
✓ Ability to have all the latest innovations & technology onboard.
✓ Everything is in perfect condition.
✓ Protected by the manufacturer’s warranty.
There are plenty of advantages to buying a used boat. Firstly, your initial purchase will cost less than if you were buying a new boat, so you could get more for your money when you buy a second-hand vessel. Other great benefits can be:
✓ More economical option.
✓ Usually second-hand boats come fully equipped with everything you need on board.
✓ Any minor issues used boats have are likely to have already been identified & dealt with.
✓ You can also feel confident that the technologies onboard the boat are well-established and reliable.
✓ Lower cost of ownership per year (for example, the cost of insurance cover for a second-hand boat is usually lower than for a new boat).
Getting your boat serviced regularly is important to prolong its life and keep it running smoothly, as well as for safety reasons. How frequently it needs servicing will vary depending on how much use you get out of it. It’s generally recommended to have your boat fully serviced after every 100 hours of use.
Boat chandlery is a broad term that includes all of the accessories you need to run your boat. This covers essential boating equipment as well as spare parts for the vessel. Chandlery includes items like anchors, ropes, batteries, winches, and anything else that helps you kit out, maintain, and operate your boat either above or below deck.
