Buying New vs. Used
The decision to purchase a new or used boat or personal watercraft can be a tough one. It comes down to what you want and how much you can afford.
Buying a new boat or personal watercraft has many advantages, including getting exactly what you want, obtaining a full manufacturer’s warranty, and having little if anything to worry about when it comes to repairs.
However, buying a used boat or personal watercraft can be a better choice, especially if your budget is limited. There are many late model boats and personal watercrafts on the market with some of the manufacturer’s warranty remaining.
Two questions to answer before buying a used boat or personal watercraft:
- Is it in good mechanical shape?
- Is it priced fairly?
At VacationLand FCU, we urge you to have any used boat or personal watercraft you’re considering buying checked by a qualified marine mechanic. The charge is minimal and includes checking all the craft’s major systems: engine, transmission, electrical, heating, cooling and plumbing.
Fair market value of the boat or personal watercraft can be determined easily by consulting any reputable pricing guide on the Internet or here at the credit union.
Whether you decide to buy new or used, VacationLand Federal Credit Union urges you to carefully consider all the pros and cons before making your purchase.
When you’re ready to buy, we’ll be ready to help with reasonable finance terms and competitive rates.
