A Quick Guide to New Boat Shopping, Lincoln, Nebraska

Those who have felt the pull of the open waters may have considered buying a new boat of their own. However, narrowing down the list of options can quickly become overwhelming. The guide below lists several questions to ask yourself before purchasing to make sure you choose the right make and model for your needs.

3 Questions to Ask When Shopping for a New Boat

1. How Do You Plan to Use the Boat? 

Whether you’re interested in speedboats or mini pontoons, your intended use for the boat should guide your purchase. Let the local boat dealer know if you’re a fishing, racing, or water skiing enthusiast, as certain boat types may be preferable to others for these activities. Furthermore, consider how many people will be joining you on these excursions, to ensure there will be room to accommodate them.

2. Where Will You Take the Boat?

new boatAre you planning to take it out on freshwater or saltwater? Calm or choppy waters? Consider, too, whether you intend to dock the boat on the water or park it on land and the fees associated with either option.

3. How Much Do You Want to Spend?

In general, most new boats cost anywhere between $10,000 to $70,000, but prices may increase when you add certain accessories, such as a cover or trailer hitch. Therefore, consider the likely life span and cost of repairs based on the boat’s year, make, model, and engine. And don’t forget to browse used options, if you want to keep costs low.
