Re: Boat Buying Costs
A survey from a SAMS Accredited Surveyor in Southern Ontario will cost $17.00/ft plus HST. There are a couple of surveyors around who will do it for $9.00/ft and they are worth every penny
Sea trials are an additional cost of about $80.00 per hr. if you want the surveyor to come along.
You will also have to pay the cost of the lift (approx. $500.00 depending on which marina) if the boat is in water.
The hysterical laughter you hear as you drive a way in your"new" boat ..... is the seller.
