Discover Boating | Buying A Boat

the best of social distancing...

Thinking about buying a boat? Like many boaters across the country, at this time of the year we gravitate our thoughts towards the water. For some, this boating season will mean navigating new social distancing best practices as they prepare their boats for launch. For others, the coming Spring and Summer brings with it the possibility of buying a new boat. With the uncertainty surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the process of shopping for a boat raises a lot of questions for prospective boat buyers. The good news is that identifying, testing, purchasing and servicing a new boat is still possible with proper preparation. 

Many first time boat owners are surprised at how well buying a boat compares to some pre coronavirus pandemic holiday alternatives. Pre-COVID a family vacation might have included a trip overseas, a week or so on an ocean cruise ship or you may have embarked on an incredible great train journey. For a family of four, a family holiday may have cost from $10,000 to upwards of $50,000. This could have blown out to over $100,000 over a five or six year period. There is a huge range of family boats within that very same price range.

The first step in the boat-buying process is thinking about the reasons you want to be on the water. This will help decide what type of boat you should be looking at buying. This will limit buying uncertainty and successfully move you forward in the boat buying process. Boasting a range of boats from dinghies to cabin boats, aluminium or fibreglass, at Don Morton Marine we can customise a boating package to suit many different boating styles and price entry points. Combined with an effective use of technology and personal research, you can find yourself at the helm of your own boat, enjoying the best of social distancing, in not much time as well.
