The decision to get on the water is instinctive, unfortunately how to go about it is not. At any one time there are tens of thousands of used boats and a long list of new yachts available for sale making the selection process a daunting task. Being Lucid about your boating VISION is a start: Long range cruising and anchoring offshore OR weekend boating on the Intercostals waterways? Will you do your boating in Florida, the North East, the Bahamas, the Caribbean, the Great Lakes, or Europe? What is your budget? Answering all these questions will help you narrow the field, but that’s only if you were truly honest with yourself and even then a plethora of choices remains.
You can then spend the next 10 to 18 months gathering enough yachting knowledge to help you pin down the motor yacht models that will fit your needs, then another six months while you find the best kept/outfitted/priced one. A big sigh of relief before making the offer, then hoping you didn’t leave money on the table and that you’ll know how to handle the surveyors, finance, insurance, contract attorneys, title agency, safety inspections, offshore closing options…
