Yacht Purchase Advice: the pitfalls you need to avoid
How to select your new yacht

Buying a new or used yacht is not like buying a car. It is like buying a house but only much more complex You buy a new or used yacht because you want your dream to become true. But between your decision to buy a new yacht and the delivery, a lot needs to be done: choosing your options, fabrics, engine configuration, power consumption, sails, rigging, flag registration etc. As more and more people with 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.
