Brokerages have Boat Brokers to show you all types of boats. They usually have an extensive amount of knowledge about used and new boats. With all the different types and models out there, you need someone to put it in some order. That comes from you telling your boat or yacht broker your preferences and models you are leaning towards. From here, he can show you those models and also boat types you might not have seen before. Your boat broker will be asking what length range fits you, to find if it would be something you can use a boat trailer with, or something larger. He will be asking how many years old of a boat are you looking for, and if you are in the 1 or 2 year old range, he might be able to get you into a new boat with all the new boat deals out there.
As you look for a boat, your search will have many of the same type and model as you focus on a style and model. Here you will find the same boat in different conditions...ranging from heavily used to rarely used. Heavily used boats can still look better than a rarely used one. One gets washed and waxed all the time, the other which is rarely used sits and does not get washed or waxed because they are not there. Now the sun and weather start working on the boat, and the finish starts fading, the upholstery does too with some cracking.....so look at them all! You will come across some that show pride of ownership, and these stand out because they are not too many around for each style and model. The owner needs time and patience to keep the boat that way. It will sparkle! You might pay a premium for this, but sometimes it is worth it. For those of you that are handy, something in between might work out perfectly. So find that perfect used boat just for you and navigate your way out to the water!
