How do I buy a boat? Tips & tricks for buyers!

Buying a boat for the first time is an exciting time. The search for the perfect boat can be fun, but also very overwhelming. How to make the right choice and where to find your dream yacht? We would like to help you on your way to the water.

Choosing a boat
It all starts with the one question: what do you want to use your boat for? Are you going on a boating holiday in the Netherlands? Do you want to sail abroad? Or will you limit yourself to day trips in your own area? Think about what you will need for this. How many people will you need to fit on board? Do you need cabins with sleeping accommodation? Would you like a toilet and possibly a shower on board? All this will give you an idea of the type of boat you should be looking for. Set a budget in advance and stick to it. Don't forget to include the annual costs of maintenance and insurance in your budget.

The search begins
Now that you know what type of boat suits you, the search can begin. On our website you will find a wide range of used and new yachts. You are also welcome in our sales marina on the Boulevard Nautique in Roermond. Is your dream yacht not listed? Then we will be happy to assist you in your search for a yacht with another broker or private individual. We advise and support you during the negotiations and the administrative process.
