Tips on What Type of Boat to Buy

WHAT TYPE OF BOAT TO BUY The first question to ask yourself is: What kind of boating would I like to do? If you haven't done so already, consider where and how you will use the boat that you buy. Boats are specialized, so what you buy should be largely determined by how you will enjoy the water. Take the time to do your research. Just as you wouldn't buy an off-road vehicle to commute on a highway, it's important to find the right boat to fit your activities, tastes, and the needs of your crew. Ask yourself these questions and answer them honestly before signing that purchase contract. Do you want something you can put on a trailer and haul from waterway to waterway? Is entertaining guests with cocktails at sundown the primary motivation for your purchase? Will you do a lot of overnighting? Do your kids have plans to water-ski and wakeboard? Each of these is a valid reason to buy a boat, and each will lead you to a different boat. Even once you decide on a type, there are more choices to make because each boat type will require different amounts of time and money to enjoy properly. For example, a trailerable boat can save you money on dockage and winter storage, but each time you want to use it you will have to take it to a launch ramp and get it in the water. A boat stored in the water can make quick after-work getaways possible. -Article courtesy of Boat.com
