Purchasing a new boat
Is it better to buy a new boat? There is no straightforward answer to this question. It depends on your budget and your mentality. With a new boat, you get to select the latest designs, styles, features and gear. Everything works and if there is any problem, your warranty will cover fixing it. The moment you clear the last sea-trial phase, you are good to go. At this stage, maintenance is minimal and routine.
Keep in mind that buying a new yacht takes time. If you have made up your mind about it, start your research right after summer. In this way, you will have ample time to locate the exact or a very similar boat to take for a test cruise. More importantly, if your boat of choice is not in stock, there will be enough time for your boat to be built, shipped and delivered on time for the first, perfect, summer cruise!
