Buying and owning a boat

Owning a boat or yacht is something many people think or dream about, and thatís where it ends.....or maybe not...


Maybe itís all the other issues to consider once you have bought a boat or that the fact itís considered a luxury that you can do without that cuts short the inevitable next step. But be assured that, unless you have a phobia about floating about on the water, once you own a boat it often becomes as much part of the family as your car.

So letís look at some of the pros and cons associated with boat buying and owning a boat compared to a car.

Pros
Well for most pleasure craft, unlike a car, there are no age restrictions.
You donít have to apply for a licence and pass a test to use one depending on where you use the boat.
No road tax.
No MOT.
Insurance is not compulsory, although some marinas, storage, launch facilities etc may require third party insurance.
New boats for sale donít need seat belts.
You can stop and have a cup of tea just about anytime you like.
No speed restrictions out at sea

Cons
Itís not always possible to test out a boat before buying it.
You canít be certain of the hours of use the boat or engine has had.
To get it home you need special transport or a tow bar.
