With an increase in flash floods and severe storms across much of the United States, our team at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas offers the good news about flooded boats.
Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas sends our thoughts and prayers to the thousands affected by the flash floods and severe storms that have been sweeping across much of the southern United States. With an increase in flash floods and severe storms, our team at Buxton Marine offers the good news about flooded boats.
The good news about flooded boats is that they can still offer good value. The reality is, boats are not cars and are built to not only handle but also withstand water and the elements. Whereas cars are built to keep nasty elements out of the interior and various engine and electrical components, boats are built to get wet and present far fewer problems when it comes to flooding. Boat manufacturers have this in mind when they’re putting together the wiring, engines, steering systems, upholstery and other materials. Boats are meant to withstand the harsh marine and water environments.
While our team would recommend you walk away from a flood-damaged vehicle, a flood-damaged boat is a different story. The worst part about flood-damaged vehicles is their damages often come months or years down the road as interior parts and components rot and corrode over time. Therefore, when you see a discounted price on a boat because of water damage, see it as an opportunity to still buy a great boat at a low price with much fewer consequences than buying a flood-damaged car.
Should you have any further questions on flood-damaged boats, contact our team at Buxton Marine in Lewisville. Moreover, if you are looking to buy or lease a used boat near Dallas, our service and parts department is happy to serve as a resource to ensure you’re buying a great boat with minimal damage. We look forward to serving you and your family and we’ll see you out on the water soon!
