Buying a boat
Nobody wants to pay too much! In this transparent internet world in which we live, it’s tempting to only look for the lowest price. But low price doesn’t always correlate to good value. We strive to represent the unique value proposition of every boat we offer. Freedom Boat Service only represents boats for sale about which we are informed.
Our annual inspections of our customers’ boats in the regular course of our service protocol provide a unique record of the needs and responses to those needs. This allows you to buy with confidence.
If we haven’t restored or regularly cared for a specific boat, we prefer to inspect the structure, finish, systems, and mechanicals before we offer it for sale. The Freedom flag on the listing indicates our inspection has been completed, and we have greater detail available on such boats.
We strive for open, honest communication among all parties, with transparent transactions.
Selling a boat
What’s my boat worth? That’s the question every boat owner wants answered, whether they’re selling or not. The answer depends on many factors, including condition, rarity, desirability, originality, and the owners’ desired “transaction velocity.” Is the main goal to maximize the value received, sell quickly, or some combination thereof? That’s where the process begins, in helping the boat owner determine the offering price. Once that’s determined, we go to work matching the boat to a new owner. Through a combination of advertising, web presence, and networking with our contacts in the industry, we actively market every boat we represent.
We specialize in representing a selection of the best boats in the world. We’re not competing against you with an inventory of boats owned by us. We accurately represent your boat, personally, so you don’t have to be concerned with it. We present all realistic offers, and work to help make the transaction happen seamlessly. We’ll help take care of the details after the sale, too. We can arrange surveying, insurance, and transportation, in order to make the sale process easy for all.
