So, you've decided it's time to finally get that boat you've been dreaming of and to get into the boating lifestyle. Should you buy new?
Who doesn’t like a shiny, new toy? The first reason of all for buying a new boat is the fact, that this boat didn’t have any previous owner, so the boat cannot be misused and is without hidden damages. This brand-new boat will come with latest designs, styles, features and gear and of course shipyard warranty, if you purchase it from your official distributor.
Second reason is, that you will purchase the boat in the version and configuration that is convenience to your needs, to your wishes according to the latest and best up-to-date technology. You can choose all the features, the options to complete the boat perfect for your individual pleasure. You can buy exactly what you want and not just what’s on the preowned market and you don’t have to get an answer to the most troubling question: Why is this used boat for sale?
Purchasing a used boat may seem attractive due to the reduced upfront expense; however, the cost and time required to haul out, survey, repair, refit, equip your new-to-you boat may not be worth it. Some owners want a “project” and buying a used sailboat or powerboat means working on the boat in their spare time. If your primary goal is to enjoy your boat on the water, consider the advantages of buying a new boat and avoid the hassle – especially when there are so many potential unknowns with a used boat.
The sales team at Baltic Trade System Ltd. www.baltictradesystem.lv will help you to choose the right boat for your dream and deliver it water ready anywhere you want.
Some tips before buying new boat
If you decide to purchasing a boat, it is important that you choose the right boat for you, your family and your lifestyle.

Which sailing area do you want to sail (fresh or salt water - lakes, rivers, oceans)? How often you plan to be out on the water? Which specific activities do you envision out there, with your family, your friends? Will it be mostly coastal cruising, or racing, fishing, scuba diving or possibly living aboard, maybe even circumnavigation. A new boat is perfectly suited for your intended use and time on the water, depending where you will keep your boat and what restrictions might exist in terms of hull length, water draft and even air draft. Be mindful of requirements around where you intend to cruise.
Beyond friends’ recommendations and the overwhelming amount of information available online, in the end you will have to decide, from whom you will buy and who will do the service for your boat throughout your ownership.
