The best bargains often can been found in boats not even on the market place yet!
Many boat owners are not using their boats anymore but still procrastinate in taking steps to put it on the market.
It is not easy to put your boat on the market: either you pay a broker or your spend a lot of time advertising it on internet
, bulletin boards, magazines, ... so it is very easy to postpone doing it...
But if someone contact you by email
an make you a decent offer, you probably will accept and the whole process will go easy and fast between buyer and seller! So, if you are looking for a new boat, visit some marinas
and ask friends around the world who are in marinas
and can probably give you some leads
Good luck to you finding your Dream Boat at a price
you can afford!
I have been here in a marina in Southern Philippines
and have seen many boats for sale
around me ... most of them not very well advertised or not at all (see above reasons)! There must be at least 5 monohulls and a few catamaran for sale
here right now !
