Spring fever gotcha wanting to upgrade the boat? Need to sell the one ya got?
1st impressions are everything... So, here's 7 tips to help put your boat's best foot forward.
1. TUNE UP THAT ENGINE!
Make sure it's got clean oil and filters and that it's running great. This is one of the most important (and MOST EXPENSIVE) parts of your boat, so make sure it's water ready!!
2. MAKE NEEDED REPAIRS
Got major electrical or mechanical problems? Get 'em fixed! Mechanical problems are a sure fire way to ruin a sale.
3. GIVE IT A GOOD SCRUB DOWN
Get her looking her very best. Clean and polish it up good...inside and out. Everything's more impressive when it's clean!
Chances are you've accumulated a lot of "junk in tha trunk"... so clean out storage compartments of personal and unnecessary items. One man's trash is NOT ALWAYS another man's treasure!
5. TAKE GREAT PHOTOS...
and lots of them! Get as many quality shots as you can, from all different angles, and get up close and personal to highlight your boat's best features.
6. GATHER MAINTENANCE PAPERWORK
Potential buyers want to know the boat was taken care of properly. Proof of maintenance is always a plus.
7. REMOVE WANTED UPGRADES
Consider removing after market upgrades if you want to keep them for the new boat. If potential buyers see them on the boat, they'll expect them to be part of the sale.
