Finding Long-Term Value for Boat Buyers

8th April 2011
Finding Long-Term Value for Boat Buyers
BoatTest.com has posted a guide to getting the best long-term value from your next boat purchase.
With boat buyers increasingly seeing their purchases as personal assets and investments for the future in this tough economic climate, making the right choice is more important than ever.
'Long-term value' is the key phrase. It's not just about price, but fitting the needs of the owner, and depreciating less than the average boat in the class - even after many years of enjoyment.
The site reminds boat buyers to remember the difference between 'type' and 'class' when comparing models, and its ten-point guide breaks down everything you need to know when choosing a boat for enduring value.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
