How to Choosing Between a New and Used Pontoon Boat

Last updated 5 years ago

If you’re in the market for a pontoon boat, the first item to consider is whether you’re interested in buying a new or used boat. Both new and used pontoon boats have plenty of advantages to offer, so knowing what you want is key. At Moose Landing Marina in Maine, our award-winning sales staff will not only help simplify the process, but we’ll also make it fun and enjoyable, too. Be sure to consider the following questions when deciding whether you’re interested in buying a new or used boat.

What are Your Needs?

Consider why you want to buy a pontoon boat. Will its primary function be for travel, recreation, sport, or even fishing? Each individual will be attracted to buying a boat for different reasons. You may want to buy one for personal use, or perhaps because you have a partner or family. Be sure to take into account both who and what the boat will be used for to make sure you end up with one that’s right for you.

What are the Advantages of Buying a New Boat?                                                                                          

New boats are unblemished. From the start, they will be in first-class condition and you’ll know everything runs smoothly. You will be getting the latest in design and technology. In addition, a warrantee will cover your pontoon boat. Buying a new boat will leave you with unmatched peace of mind, and the process will be quick and easy, which means you’ll be out on the water sooner.

What are the Advantages of Buying a Used Boat?

Cost efficiency is key. In buying a used pontoon boat, you’ll be left with more money in your pocket. This extra money can be used to customize your boat or buy new equipment. You may even want to spend it on some extra fun, such as renting a jet ski from us! Also, new boats depreciate in value almost immediately, so buying a used boat often times will get you a better value.
