Buying a boat isn’t like buying a newspaper, a loaf of bread or even a car or truck. When a newspaper and groceries are purchased, the items have a finite timeline. Most people already drive either a car or truck. But with a boat purchase, especially with a first-time buyer, it is more of a lifestyle change, than a mode of transportation. A good dealer should guide the buyer through the process of navigating the wonderful world of a lifestyle afloat.
