The best time to buy a boat

The sun is shining, you're looking out over the water and you're thinking: 'I also want a boat'. Recognisable? During the summer, many people decide to buy a boat. But is it the best time to buy a boat?
You can always buy a boat. When you buy a boat in the summer, you can enjoy it immediately. Boating holidays in the Netherlands, elsewhere abroad or day trips in your own country. With your own boat, it is possible. Have you seen our ships offer yet?
Used and new boats
Do you want to get into the water next boating season? Or do you already have a yacht and do you want to orientate on the market for a longer period of time? Please note that the best time to buy a boat differs for new and used boats.
  • Used boat: end of season
    After the summer, there are often more used boats for sale in the Netherlands, Belgium and Germany. Do not be tempted to make a hasty choice. Use the autumn to get your bearings. Have you signed the purchase contract? No problem, in the winter you still have enough time for possible adjustments, maintenance and paperwork. So you are well prepared for the water.
  • New boat: November or December
    Are you interested in a new boat? Then make sure you start buying in November and December. This way you have enough time to have your new boat adapted to your personal wishes before the new sailing season starts.
