Does the thought of buying a pre-owned boat seem complicated?  It doesn’t need to be.  If you are interested in buying a brokerage boat, our professional sales team at Ed Huck Marine can help you minimize your risk and ensure you’re 100% satisfied previous to finalizing your choice.
With years of experience selling boats that focuses on delivering a great customer experience, James Gibson, Don Crawford and Dave Lamothe offer the following 4-step approach to guide this process.
  1. Make a preliminary offer with an acceptable deposit that the seller agrees to.
  2. Once accepted, we’ll assist with a mechanical inspection to ensure all parties know the boat’s mechanical condition.
  3. If the boat passes the mechanical, we suggest a certified Marine surveyor take a look at the hull and structure.  While EHM can’t suggest which one, we’ll provide a list of independent surveyors for you to review and make your choice. Most insurance companies will require a survey.
  4. Once your chosen vessel passes the survey, it’s time to finalize your purchase with a water test/seatrial to establish that all systems are functioning as expected.
  5. We can also assist with financing your purchase with low rates and comfortable terms.
  6. Lastly, now that you’re a boat owner, EHM can offer dockage, storage and service solutions to make boating stress free.
