If you’ve been dreaming for years about buying your own boat and have decided the time has come, consider purchasing one of the Myrtle Beach used boats that we have available. It’s a great way to “get your feet wet” with boating and get a better idea of the type and size of boat you really want without investing quite as much initially.
There are plenty of benefits to buying Myrtle Beach used boats. One is that you can find reviews online for nearly all used boats so you’ll have access to information from previous owners that you may not have with a new boat. Another benefit to buying pre-owned is you can save a significant amount of money over buying new. You won’t be alone in your purchase either because according to the National Marine Manufacturers Association, “60 percent of first time boat owners purchase a used boat.”
Determine what you want to use your boat for in order to be sure you buy the right type and size of boat. Will you be going on fishing trips? Alone or with a group of friends? Do you want a boat just for entertaining? Maybe you want a boat for your family to just have fun with.
Make sure the boat you want to buy was properly maintained. Inspect any boat carefully before buying and if available, check out the maintenance records. Our service department reviews every boat that we take in before putting it on our lot for sale. We’ll explain that process to you when you come to see us.
Lastly but very important is that when you buy a used boat you’ll also need to a motor and a boat trailer. Make sure the boat you want to buy comes with those and if not, you’ll need to buy them separately. Should that be the case, we carry both, new and used, here at Marine Service Center.
