“I just wanted to thank you for the brilliant job you did on my pre-purchase survey. Your patience, flexibility and accessibility were greatly appreciated. Your attention to detail and thoroughness surpassed every expectation I had. On a side note, even the insurance company made mention that this was the "most comprehensive survey we have ever seen". Thank you for making this part of the buying process less stressful.”

Buying a Boatin UK, Palma, Gibraltar, Marbella?

We understand that buying a yacht or powerboat is an ultimate dream. We also know that an element of stress is involved in such a large investment. We've put together this page with useful tips to help you navigate the process and make sure you’re purchasing a vessel that best suits you and your needs.

To start with, buying a boat is as easy as buying a car. No written contract is required and an offer to purchase for an agreed price, subject to any conditions, can be accepted by the seller and the deal clinched.

You wouldn’t buy a second hand car without checking it’s overall condition, it’s engine and electrical and fuel systems. With a boat it’s even more important you know the overall condition before you and your family and friends venture onto the high seas, which is why we highly recommend having a Pre-Purchase Survey carried out. A pre-purchase survey will alert you to anything that needs fixing and the relative price of the boat.
