Buying a boat--handling the pesky details
So you''ve found the boat of your dreams, you''re ready to make an offer--now what? What are the steps that would typically be required to make her yours?
Is there a place on the web (or elsewhere) to find sample purchase contracts, including some text about a satisfactory survey and seatrial?
How "formal" is the process (I suppose it depends on whether you''re buying from a broker or private party)?
How negotiable are asking prices?
You can (hopefully) see where I''m going with this: there is ton of very valuable information about boats on this message board, but I would appreciate your insight on what it takes to finally make the purchase happen. Thanks!!!
