Everyone knows that purchasing a home is one of the most stressful and complex purchases you will make in your entire life, but here at Worldwide Yachtsman, we would argue that your first boat or yacht takes first place. There are so many incredible models to choose from, and how do you know if you are getting the best price and value? How do you ensure your new boat or yacht has all the features you need to make your sailing dreams come true? 

In addition to connecting you to the country’s top yacht and boat brokers, we want to help you navigate the purchasing process with a helpful list of tips and tricks for getting started. Here is how we suggest you prepare yourself before purchasing your first boat or yacht:

1. Determine your preferences and budget. You aren’t just buying a boat to sit in the driveway or the marina: You probably have a plan for how you want to use your boat or yacht and the places you want to go. Consider the different options such as amenities, number of cabins and cabin sizes, and the desired range and speed you want your boat to be able to handle. (You can easily filter options on our shop page.) Regarding your budget, consider the mooring fees, insurance, and maintenance costs of the boat you purchase on top of the purchase price. These things can add up, so plan accordingly to keep your boat or yacht in top shape!

2. Learn more about the sizes and types of boats and yachts. You may need a sizeable onboard capacity to host family and friends or a smaller boat for singular sailing experiences and racing. You may be looking for something requiring lower operating costs but still capable of extended habitation. No matter your needs, knowing what kinds of boats and yachts are available is essential to determine which best suits your preferences. Some different types of boats include sailboats, motorboats, catamarans, pontoon boats, and cruisers.

3. Choose a trusted broker. If you are part of the boating community, you may already know a broker who can help you find your next boat.
