Buying A Boat Budget

Buying A Boat Budget

There are heaps of great boats on the market, but before you purchase your boat you need to decide how much money you want to spend on a boat. This could be a monthly repayment or a lump sum, whatever suits your personal situation. 

Be prepared, your budget may change as you conduct your search but you need to reduce the options somehow and price is an easy way to do it.

Key Costs to Consider

  • Boat purchase price / monthly repayments

  • Moorings

  • Fuel

  • Servicing

  • Maintenance and lift out

  • Insurance

  • Survey report

Don’t rush the boat buying process. Boating entails much more than simply turning on the key and pulling away from the dock - the more time and effort you put into the proper selection of a boat, the more you will get out of it.
