Another way to buy a boat is from an individual. There are several different ways to do this. Some look in the newspaper, Craig's List, EBay, word of mouth, etc. The best way is to buy from a reputable dealer who actually inspects the boat, gives a test ride, helps with the financing and have the owner fix items that may not work properly. The owner may not have even known that a part was failing. An inspection and a test drive before buying does help to eliminate future problems. At Arnolds, we are glad to do all the above and both the owner and buyer can have confidence that the sale does not happen until the paperwork and service has been completed.
Call us if you are a boat owner and we will be glad to represent your boat in a professional manner. We will review the brokerage agreement over the phone or in person and show you the value of why boaters list with us. We will keep you informed of all offers.
If you are looking for a used boat, please review the used boat list or call us and we give you all the details of a particular boat.
