When looking for boats for sale you have spend some time in advance deciding what type of boat you want to buy before you commit yourself. Any boat yard will offer you a range of boats ranging from small ski boats to large flybridges for serious fishing, so you have to decide what you want to use your boat for prior to even entering boat sales with all these wonderful used boats for sale.Do you want to learn more?

The biggest problem most people have with boats is their eyes. I am not suggesting that you will enter a boat sale looking for a cheap tinny and end up buying a Sealine SC35, but you could still purchase a boat that you love but don’t really need. You must therefore make your mind up to stick to the type of boat and price range you have set for yourself. Once you have decided that there are other things to think about.

How many people will be in the boat at one time? If six, then a two-man tinny will not be enough. Do you need speed for skiing, or quietness for fishing? How about storage: do you need a trailer? If so what size? How about the material – aluminium, wood, fiberglass

The questions are endless and you can’t answer them all immediately, so settle for some basic ‘musts’ and then go hunting for boats for sale. You can check out what is available, and make your choice with your basic needs in mind, so if that Malibu ski boat looks mouthwatering forget it – you have come to purchase a fishing boat, but if it can pull skis into the bargain then fine.

When buying a boat from used boat sales there are certain things that you have to be aware of, starting with the condition of the boat. Without going into that too deeply, if your intended purchase warrants it, make sure you get a proper marine survey carried out by a qualified boat surveyor. You won’t need that for a cheap boat, but not all used boats are inexpensive, and even if it means delaying your offer, make sure you get an expert to give it the once-over, or do it yourself if you are capable. It might also be worthwhile having the engine given the once-over.

Next, make sure you check the ownership papers and make sure that the seller actually owns the boat, or it might not be yours for too long! Also make sure that it does all it is advertised to do. It won’t be the first time that somebody has bought a fishing boat with no space for live bait and no rod storage. Check everything advertised and makes sure it is there, including the GPS and Fishfinder if they are advertised.
