Boat Selling Tips: Follow these 4 Tips to Get it Sold

You’ve been into the dealership and have an eye on a brand new Nautique wakeboard boat. You’re ready to buy, but there is one small problem – you haven’t sold your old boat yet!

 

If you’re planning to sell your wakesurf, waterski, or wakeboard boat in the near future, plan to use these boat selling tips from Buxton Marine Lewisville:

 

  1. Perform Maintenance

As a boat owner, it’s a good idea to keep logs of all maintenance and service done on your boat, exactly for times such as these. Potential buyers want to know that your boat is well taken care of before purchasing, so showing them service records can go a long way in securing the sale. Even if you don’t have the records handy, it’s a good idea to have your boat serviced to make sure all current maintenance is performed and you can confidently tell a prospective buyer everything is in good working condition.

 

  1. Deep Clean

We’re talking deep clean beyond what you think is necessary. Potential buyers are going to open and look in everything nook and cranny in the boat; don’t let them find spills, dirt, and mold. This just gives the illusion that your boat is not well maintained, casting doubts on whether or not it’s a good buy.

 

  1. Stage the Boat

Think of your boat as you would a home for sale. Look at it with fresh eyes, as if you’re the buyer. What is a turn-off? Are there storage compartments stuffed with gear? The best way to stage a boat is to take everything out, and then only neatly put back the things you plan to sell with the boat.

 

  1. Don’t Forget the Trailer

The trailer is part of the deal, so if it’s showing some signs of wear, spruce it up! Remove rust, repaint chipped paint, replace old chains and hooks, and don’t forget the tires! If there is maintenance to be done, go ahead and do it, as it will give a buyer peace-of-mind when making their boat purchase.

What Makes a Nautique Boat Worth the Price Tag?

At Buxton Marine – the #1 Nautique dealer in the country – we realize that Nautique boats are not cheap – but it’s for good reason. What makes a Nautique worth the price tag, you ask? Let’s talk about a few things that really set the Nautiques apart from the rest of the pack:

 

Powerful Engines

There is a reason the pros prefer Nautique. Each Nautique is built with a Pleasurecraft Marine Engine Company (PCM) engine that uses the latest in technology, along with 40 years of reliability testing, to create the best engine on the market. These guys have the art and science of engine building down and we’re delighted to have PCM engines in each and every Nautique we sell.

 

5 Year, Transferrable Warranty

Nautique stands behind its products and provides a customer service experience second-to-none with a 5 year, transferrable warranty. When you’re spending this much on a boat, you want 93 years of proven experience in the boating industry backing your boat purchase. Nautique has proven time and again that our customers come first and we want them to enjoy every aspect of their purchase without any regrets.

Nautique Surf System

If you love to wakesurf, then give the Nautique Surf System a try! Beautiful, perfectly formed waves appear at the touch of a button. Any lake or river is now a surfer’s playground. Just throw the rope in and enjoy the ride!

 

Quality Craftsmanship

No other manufacturer has the quality and craftsmanship that you get with each Nautique boat. Each part of your Nautique is handcrafted or hand-installed in Orlando, Florida. The innovative design of the boat allows for more convenience, all while quality you can trust. In fact, Nautique has an internal stringer system that keeps the ballasts under the floors vs. clogging up the storage areas, which actually improves the strength of the hull.

Lewisville Boat Maintenance: 4 Tips to Help Your Engine Last Longer

Most boat owners consider their boat – whether it’s a Nautique, MasterCraft, Supra, Tige, etc. – to be a valuable asset. And with the investment, comes the inevitable Lewisville boat maintenance.

 

Many customers at Buxton Marine ask us if routine maintenance is necessary, and the answer is certainly yes. It extends the life of your boat and helps your engine last longer. However, there are some simple things you can do on your own to prolong the life of your boat engine:

 

Get Out on the Lake!

This is an easy one! Sure, you might have seasons when it’s more difficult to do so, but running the engine is an essential – and simple – way to extend the life of your engine. When an engine sits cold for too long, the oil and lubricant drains off of the components, making everything a little sluggish. Just get out to the lake on a regular basis, and your engine will thank you.

 

Ease into It

We’re all in a hurry to get out on the lake, but be sure to idle your engine for a few minutes after cranking it to help the oil warm up. Warming the oil helps the engine run more smoothly, without any stress on the components. If you throttle it too soon while the engine is still cold, it just creates more stress that could leave lasting effects.

Plan to Cruise the Lake

When your Nautique boat is in cruising speed, it’s in its sweet spot. The engine isn’t the least bit taxed and everything is humming along perfectly. When you spend an extended amount of time at full throttle, you may not immediately notice any effects because the hours of boat use are unaffected. However, it’s just common sense that hours on the lake that are at higher RPMs are going to produce more stress on the engine than hours that are at cruising speed. Your boat is designed to take the higher RPMs, just make sure you’re balancing that with time cruising.

 

Flush the Engine

We know it’s a pain, but routine Lewisville boat maintenance includes flushing the engine after each day out on the lake. This avoids corrosion from deposits in the water and helps keep everything clean.
