Purchase Agreement Example/Template?
 
I've searched and searched, and have come up with no more than suggestions on what a used boat purchase agreement should contain. What would be really nice would be an example or template. You never know unless you ask, so: Anybody know where such a thing might be found?

We're going to look at a good possibility late tomorrow morning, so...

TIA,
Jim

Thanks for the follow-up, USCGRET1990, but what I'm looking for is a purchase agreement document. This is a device where you agree to purchase for so many $$$, with contingencies layed-out (such as contingent on a successful survey, engine inspection, sea trial, ability to insure, clear title, etc.), and list what it is that's being sold, incl. all that comes with it, that may or may not be nailed down. Frequently there will be a provision for an earnest money deposit, the conditions under which it will be refunded or forfeit, time limits, etc. Frequently there will be provisions for what happens if the survey fails, such as price re-negotiation, "seller agrees to repairs not-to-exceed," etc.

Those sites more or less say what the document should contain. The actual layout probably various from dealer to dealer. You might just have make up your own if the seller doesn't have a good one.

I think this is what you want.

In your contingency, be sure to allow adequate time for slecting a good surveyor, and engiune mechanic, I'd ask for four weeks. Good luck.

Thanks, sailingfool, that's the kind of thing I was looking for. That one is set up for a broker, and this will be a private sale (if it happens), but that can be used for a kind of template, if nothing else.

Four weeks, eh? Takes that long to find a good surveyor (and possibly engine mechanic) and get 'em on-site?
