Yacht’s Logbook - Point of Sale?

What becomes of the yachts logbook(s) when you sale your yacht? Does it go to the new owner or can it remain with the original owner?

For me....

Navigation logs go with me, engine/maintenance logs stay with the boat

Re: Yacht’s Logbook - Point of Sale?

It’s an invaluable tool for the new owners and a great tool especially engine maintenance. For a new owner to determine regular maintenance a good log book can justify a higher price than similar boats in the price range or help determine how hard a rig and Sails have been ridden.

Umm...

I'll be happy to pass along the engine and maintenance log, but the other one is personal and none of their biz. so no transfer and no scanned pdf.

Besides, the log I've kept for this boat alone is nearly a thousand pages already, hopefully many more to come, Not likely to scan that in!

Re: Yacht’s Logbook - Point of Sale?

Ship's logs, i.e. Fuel, Maintenance and Repair, remain with the ship. Travel/Trip logs remain with the Mariner. As a practical matter, it is also appropriate to keep copies of equipment purchase receipts as well as operating/owners manuals and warranty documents, if any, with the ship's records for the benefit of a subsequent owner. We also keep a record of resources, mechanics, repair shops, suppliers and the like with the ships papers; and, a record of spares/supplies that is updated periodically as stores are used/replaced for our own benefit and for whomever may succeed us with the yacht.

FWIW...

Re: Yacht’s Logbook - Point of Sale?

If buying then you might try to get hold of the ships copy of Nigel Calders mechanical electrical manual - the oily thumb printed pages will show what bits of the boat have been worked on

Re: Yacht’s Logbook - Point of Sale?

We've only sold one boat. All maintenance and service records were reproduced with a complete set going with the boat and us keeping a set. As to trip logs, none of that was transferred with the boat. However, the basics were shared so that the new owner knows where the boat went to accumulate it's hours. We would not have shared even that with most purchasers.

Re: Yacht’s Logbook - Point of Sale?

I guess it all depends.. I've always keep a few different books.. one for the actual mechanics and any and all works on the boat itself.. I keep all of the logs and receipt for my own personal records and for the new owner so they can have a great and detailed idea of what has been done throughout its history, etc. The other daily log is my own personal, which stays with me/us..
