So you are ready to buy your very first powerboat! How exciting! You can probably already see yourself out on the high seas enjoying the wind the sun and the waves - doing what you know you love - boating!
If you‘re like most soon-to-be power boat captains you‘ve already planned your first boating trip and the only thing stopping you from leaving this very minute is the fact that you haven‘t bought the boat yet.
The first question you may ask when you arrive at the dealership will most likely be ‘how much does it cost?‘ But this really isn‘t the first thing to consider. Neither is ‘how fast does it go?‘
While these are questions that need to be asked at some point they aren‘t the first things to consider. A great deal of thought and research needs to go into purchasing a power boat - even if it isn‘t your first one! There are many decisions to be made.
First you need to understand that certain elements of a power boat have a huge effect on the boats performance handling and safety. Not taking these things into consideration could result in a disaster on the open seas that you don‘t even want to think about right now. Let‘s just say that not taking the time to select the right boat for your boating needs could result in a tragedy such as death.
That‘s what this guide is for - to help you learn everything you need to learn in order to make the right decisions when you go power boat shopping. By the time you finish studying this guide you will arrive at the boat dealership well-prepared and while you will still have plenty of questions of your own to ask such as ‘how much is it?‘ and ‘how fast does it go?‘ you will be able to answer all of the questions that the salesman needs to ask you as well. Together with help from your salesman it won‘t take very long at all to find and buy the perfect power boat for you.
Just so that we are on the same page so to speak let‘s start by defining exactly what a power boat is. A powerboat is any boat or water vessel that is powered by an engine.
The engine may be an inboard engine and inboard/outboard engine or an outboard engine. The engine may be powered by gas or diesel fuel but diesel fuel is usually used for larger powerboats.
