Selling Your Boat? How to Make the Most Money on the Sale

Have your eye on a brand new boat for the 2019 boating season? Well let’s get your boat ready to sell then! There are certain things you can do to make the most money on the sale of a boat, and Buxton Marine is here with tips on selling your boat the right way:

 

  1. Deep Cleaning is a Must

 

Think about it from a buyer’s perspective. If they open compartments (and they will) that have standing water, mold, dirt, mildew, etc., then they’re going to question how well the boat has been maintained. Bring the boat into Buxton Marine for a deep clean and maintenance to get everything in like-new condition before selling your boat.

 

  1. Record all Maintenance

 

Speaking of maintenance, now is the time to dig up all of your maintenance records and have them neatly in a file for the prospective buyer. Detailed logs of maintenance shows that you are a boat owner who cares about impeccable quality. Even if you have maintained your boat regularly, it’s a good idea to go ahead and get it serviced with our Buxton Marine service department to ensure all parts are in excellent working order.

  1. Boat Staging

 

Staging isn’t just for houses – it’s for boats too! If you’re selling a boat, you’ll want to show it in the best light possible in order to get top dollar. While your deep cleaning the boat, take all the contents out and then only put things back in that you’ll sell with the boat. Organize and stage those items so that everything looks pristine. Prospective buyers will notice.

 

  1. Trailer Condition Matters Too!

 

Don’t forget about the trailer! If your trailer is looking a little worn, it’s time to repaint, repair chipped paint, remove rust, get new tires, etc. to make that trailer shine as well.

 

After you’ve sold your current boat, visit us at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas and let us show you the latest 2019 Nautique models, along with gorgeous pre-owned models from Malibu, Mastercraft, Supre, Tige, and more. There’s a reason our customers come back again and again to Buxton Marine of Lewisville!

Know Before You Buy: The Costs of Boat Ownership

We’re a boat dealer – so we love selling people beautiful wakeboard boats, ski boats, and wakesurf boats that provide hours of fun on the lake! But those hours of fun come at a cost, and we always want our prospective buyers to be aware of the costs of boat ownership.

 

Before buying a boat from Buxton Marine, consider these costs of boat ownership:

 

  1. Upfront Costs

 

This is the price tag on the boat. Remember that you’ll pay for the boat, plus related interest and financing costs if you finance the boat. Use our handy boat payment calculatoron our website to determine how much boat you can afford.

 

  1. Insurance

 

Now that you’ve got the boat, you’ve got to insure it too! Shop around for quotes to get the best deal that serves your needs and boat purchase best.

 

  1. Boat Storage

 

Where will you keep the boat? If you don’t have a place to store the boat at your home, then consider marina or boat storage costs when evaluating your monthly payment and cost of boat ownership.

 

  1. Maintenance

 

This is not a story of “if,” but “when.” While we certainly hope your new Nautique boat or other new boat purchase does not have major mechanical issues, boat maintenance is always a given. Regular tune-ups protect your investment and are a necessary part of the costs of boat ownership.

 

  1. Accessories

 

Consider the upfront costs that will come with outfitting our boat for pleasure on the lake. Wakeboards, wakesurf boards, ropes, life jackets, tubes, bimini upgrades, and more – these are just a few of the accessories you’ll no doubt want to purchase for your boat.

If you’re ready to take the leap into boat ownership – or still trying to figure out if purchasing a boat is right for you – contact the best boat dealer in Texas, Buxton Marine, to help answer any and all questions you may have.

3 Reasons to Buy a Pre-Owned Nautique from Buxton Marine Lewisville

If you’re out on Lake Lewisville and you see a Nautique, not only is that a gorgeous boat, but it’s quality.

 

You may think owning a Nautique wakeboard boat or water ski boat is completely unattainable, but at Buxton Marine in Lewisville, Texas, let us be the judge of that!

 

Buxton Marine Lewisville is the #1 Nautique dealer in the United States, so naturally, we have a huge selection of pre-owned Nautiques that are still fabulous boats, ready to head back to the lake with a new owner. These boats may be a few years old, but again, with quality this good, you get a steal of a deal for a boat that will provide hours of fun for your family and friends on the lake. Here are 3 reasons to consider purchasing a pre-owned Nautique for sale from Buxton Marine Lewisville, Texas:

 

More Choices Available

If you want a brand new Nautique, then we can get you exactly what you want, but that will come at a cost. When you dive into the pre-owned market, you’ll find a plethora of boats that are already equipped with the features you want, and the price is more likely to fit within your budget.

 

More Budget Friendly

If you’re on a tight budget, but know that a Nautique is the best and desperately want the quality it brings, then shopping for a boat that is 5-10 years old is going to give you the most bang for your buck since this is the time period when a new boat depreciates the most, giving you the best deal.

Extensive Vetting Process

When you buy a pre-owned boat from Buxton Marine, you know that the boat is fully vetted. We do an extensive work up on each pre-owned Nautique boat that arrives on our lot, ensuring that you know exactly what you are getting with no surprises down the road.
