Aspects to see before buying a used boat

Never buy a boat in the water without examining the hull. To carry out this verification, we do not get out of it: we have to take it out of the water. This is how we avoid unpleasant surprises. The boat could be damaged, have a damaged engine stand or be affected by osmosis or galvanic corrosion.

The state of the hold gives good clues to the maintenance. If it shows cracks, traces of water or rust on the parts of metal, it is that there is an infiltration and it is important to find the source (bridge, hatches, go-hulls, cadenes, portholes, etc.).

The condition of the engine is not easy to assess if you do not have access to the equipment needed to perform cylinder compression tests and to analyze the oil. Good marine mechanics can help you with this.

Check the quality of the materials used for maintenance (stainless steel collars, joints made with marine products, stainless steel screws, piping, etc.).

If you wish to have the boat inspected prior to purchase, do not forget to include the clause "conditional offer for favorable marine inspection". Be present during the inspection. The inspector is your ally; he will be able to provide you with valuable advice, especially on the repairs to be made and the materials to be used.
