An NMMA-certified boat is a boat that is built to certain higher standards set by the American Boats & Yacht Council (ABYC). A buyer can find an NMMA-certified sticker on the capacity plate of a boat.

If a boat has this NMMA-certified sticker attached to the boat, it means the vessel is certified. If it does not have this NMMA-certified sticker, it means the vessel is not NMMA certified.

2. Inspect The Used Boat Thoroughly

The second step of the used boat buying guide is to inspect the used boat thoroughly.

Hiring a professional marine surveyor costs between $15 and $25 per foot. Manually inspecting the boat with a checklist is free to do.

The benefits of hiring a marine surveyor are they are professionals with plenty of experience in evaluating a boat's condition and they will spot potential problems with a used boat faster than someone with no experience.

The benefit of following a marine inspection checklist is that it will help potential buyers to make a preliminary evaluation of the boat's condition for free.

The most popular method of inspecting a used boat before buying it is by using an inspection checklist and manually checking the boat yourself.

To inspect a boat manually, follow a used boat inspection checklist.

Used Boat Inspection Checklist

Below is a used boat inspection checklist to follow.

Use this inspection checklist when assessing the condition of the used boat.

Some items on the inspection checklist can be ignored when they do not apply to the specific used boat being viewed.

The entire boat should be inspected before buying it including the stern, starboard, port and bow exterior and interior. The safety equipment, electronics, and legal documents should be inspected too.

3. Perform A Sea Trial

The third step of the used boat buying guide is to perform a sea trial.

A sea trial is taking the boat out on the water to test out its capabilities and ensure it is functioning properly with no issues. It is an important part of the boat-buying process.

To perform a sea trial:

  • Run the engine at idle to assess whether there are any stuttering or engine issues. Running an engine at idle is achieved usually at 600 - 800 rpm
  • Bring the boat to cruising speed, usually 5 knots, and steer the boat both port and starboard to ensure the steering system is operating properly
  • Check the cockpit for any electronic warnings or alerts
  • If it's a sailboat, check how the rigging system operates under sail
  • Test the chart plotter/GPS electronics as you travel through the water to ensure it is functioning properly
  • Increase the boat to full throttle where it is safe and assess how the engine reacts. A boat at full throttle is approximately 4,600 to 6,000 rpm. At full throttle, the boat motor should not be smoking heavily or making unusual noises
  • Press the boat horn to ensure it works properly
  • Listen carefully for any unusual sounds or noises onboard for the entire sea trial

Performing a sea trial on a boat will take approximately 25 minutes to complete. However, this timeframe can vary based on the size of the used boat.

The benefits of performing a sea trial are it lets a potential buyer test the speed, maneuverability, comfort, steering, and sounds, it will highlight potential issues that may have been missed in the initial inspection and it will allow a boat buyer the ability to assess the boat's seaworthiness.

One risk with performing a sea trial is the potential buyer may not be familiar with the operation of the boat they are interested in purchasing so they will not get the full benefits of the sea trial. To mitigate this risk, bring the current boat owner on the sea trial.

A buyer should note that if the boat seller does not want to do the sea trial, this is a major red flag and should signal to the buyer to avoid buying the specific boat.

Performing a sea trial is free to do.

4. Check The Boat Title & Lien History

Boat title example

The fourth step of the used boat buying guide is to check the boat title and lien history.

The boat's title is a legal document that proves ownership of a boat. It is necessary for the transfer of ownership from one person to another. The boat title includes information such as the make and model of the boat, the manufacturer, the Hull Identification Number (H.I.N.), the name and address of the owner, and any liens or encumbrances on the boat.

A boat title must be transferred whenever the boat is sold from the seller to the buyer.

A boat lien is a legal claim on a boat as security for a debt. It means that the boat cannot be sold or transferred without first paying off the debt.

To check the boat title of a used boat, simply ask the current owner for the boat title to assess it or get one posted to you from the U.S. Coast Guard.

To check the lien history of a used boat:

  • Obtain an abstract of title: The US Coast Guard Abstracts of Title offers a comprehensive overview of a vessel's lien information including a detailed history of ownership and all current and resolved liens/debts. Obtaining a vessel's abstract of title through the U.S. Coast Guard can be done here. It costs $75 and takes 3 business days to complete
  • Check the boat lien claims registry: Buyers can search the boat lien claims database from marinetitle to see if there are outstanding liens on a boat. This is free to do
  • Check state vessel records: A used boat buyer can check the states vessel records of the state where the boat is registered to see if there are any outstanding liens on the boat. This costs $50 and takes up to 5 business days to complete

The benefits of checking the boat title and lien history are it will provide the buyer with legal proof of who owns the boat and it will ensure there are no outstanding debts on the boat that a new buyer may be liable for.

The most popular methods of checking a boat's lien history are to check the boat title for lien information and check the state vessel records for lien information.

5. Negotiate The Price

The fifth step of the used boat buying guide is to negotiate the price.

To negotiate the price of a used boat:

  • Perform market research: A buyer should compare the price of the used boat they are interested in with similar vessels for sale on the market. This can enable them to get a lower price for the vessel when comparing it to other similar vessels on the market
  • Point out defects or issues: If the boat has any defects or issues such as worn-out equipment, outdated electronics or damage to the hull, you can use these as leverage to negotiate a lower price. This can result in up to a 10% reduction in the price
  • Be willing to walk away: A buyer should not be afraid to walk away if the seller is not willing to negotiate or if the price is too high. Showing that you are willing to walk away can sometimes encourage the seller to be more flexible with the price
  • Be prepared to compromise on the price: Negotiation is a two-way street so be prepared to compromise on certain aspects of the sale such as the closing date, delivery options, or the inclusion of certain equipment or accessories
  • Offer to pay fast (within a day): Offering to pay for the boat fast can sometimes sway a seller to offer a lower price for the boat. If you can pay quickly, make this clear in the negotiations as the seller may be more willing to sell at a cheaper price

The benefit of negotiating the price is a buyer may be able to save money, sometimes 10% and 20% of the original price of the boat.

Negotiating the price of a used boat can take anywhere from 10 minutes to a 3-5 days for more stubborn sellers.

6. Organize A Payment Method With The Seller

The sixth step of the used boat buying guide is to organize a payment method with the boat seller.

The three main payment methods when purchasing a used boat are:

  • Paying with cash: Cash is used to pay for boats. However, this method should be avoided as it is riskier with less payment protection should an issue arise. Paying with cash has no fees
  • Paying by bank transfer: Paying for a boat by transferring money from the buyer's bank to the seller's bank account is a common method of paying for the used boat. This is a safer option as it offers some buyer protection should an issue arise. Paying by bank transfer may have fees depending on the bank but it is typically under $5 in most cases
  • Paying by bank draft: Paying by bank draft is the most common and popular method of buying a pre-owned boat. This payment method offers some protection for the buyer should a problem arise. Paying by bank draft will typically have fees of $2 to $5 but this will depend on the bank

Paying for a used boat with cash is instant whereas paying by bank transfer or a bank draft can take up to 5 business days to complete.

The benefit of paying for a used boat by bank transfer or bank draft is it leaves a receipt and proof of payment which can offer the buyer payment protection.

Paying with cash does not offer the buyer any payment protection or proof of purchase if something goes wrong.

The most popular payment method when paying for a pre-owned boat is paying by bank draft.

The payment methods that should be avoided when paying for a used boat are paying with cash or cryptocurrency as there is less protection for the buyer if a problem arises using these payment methods.

7. Draft A Bill Of Sale

Boat bill of sale

The seventh step of the used boat buying guide is to draft a bill of sale.

A boat bill of sale is a legal document that records the change of ownership of a watercraft from the seller to the buyer. The boat bill of sale includes buyer, seller, boat and sale information with signatures from the buyer, seller, and a witness.

There are two ways of drafting a boat bill of sale which are filling in a bill of sale template or having a lawyer draft the bill of sale.

The most popular method of drafting a bill of sale is to have a lawyer draft the bill of sale for you.

The average cost to have a boat bill of sale drafted by a lawyer is $350. A bill of sale legal template to follow is free to use.

A benefits of a boat bill of sale are:

  • Proof of ownership: A bill of sale provides written evidence of the transfer of ownership from the seller to the buyer, which is important when establishing legal ownership and registering the boat.
  • Protection: The bill of sale can help protect both the buyer and the seller in case of disputes or legal issues that may arise after the sale.
  • Clarifies transaction details: The bill of sale can clarify important transaction details, such as the purchase price, payment method, and any warranties or guarantees that may have been provided.
  • Compliance: A bill of sale may be required by law in some states or countries, making it necessary to have one to complete the transaction and comply with legal requirements.
  • Peace of mind: Having a written agreement in place can provide peace of mind for both the buyer and the seller, knowing that all the necessary details of the transaction have been documented and agreed upon
