Negotiate the right price and choose the equipment you need
Buying a new or used yacht is not like buying a car. It is like buying a house but only much more complex When you buy a new yacht from a dealer, they will sell you a dream. A dream to become true. But between your decision to buy and the delivery, a lot needs to be done: choosing your options, fabrics, engine configuration, power consumption, sails, rigging etc. As more and more people with just limited boating experience are buying yachts/catamarans, not an easy task to accomplish.
Regarding a used yacht, it is often not "what you see is what you get"
A used boat can have many hidden failures: structural, engines, electricity, rigging etc.
Correcting these failures can sometimes cost more than the value of the ship or what you have paid for. Yacht Brokers are there to sell a ship. Not to assess the status of the vessel.
This is where yachtcommissioning.com can bring a lot of added value
