Go look at the boat with a checklist in hand (unless you are familiar with checking boats out).

As far as Craigslist goes - I have bought and sold a number of things on it! Including my current boat!! Use common sense to determine quality of boat and seller.

Best of luck...

How do you buy a car? Why go to a dealership if you can buy it from an owner or on Craig's List? Cost?

You take a risk dealing with a private party. I have had good experiences and bad.

The same rules and caveates apply when you buy a boat. Let the buyer beware....

The ABYC, American Boat and Yacht Counsil, (http://www.abycinc.org)
has been working dilligently to provide certification to dealers and technicians who go through a rigorous approval and training process to become ABYC certified technicians. This certification program reaches out to provide standards-based, continuing education for marine technicians throughout the industry.

The NMMA, (http://www.nmma.org) The National Marine Manufacturers Association has developed certification programs to help manufacturers comply with established standards and safety regulations, and to help to inform the public of such compliance when purchasing equipment. The NMMA program certifies that the design meets the standards outlined in the NMMA Certification Handbook. The manufacturer has the responsibility of assuring that production units are manufactured in compliance with the certified design.

New Boat models must be inspected and certified prior to shipment. A list of boat manufacturers who are "Certified" is on their website.

To obtain a Boat or Yacht Certification, all components used must be on the NMMA - Type Accepted list. Details can be found at the ABYC and NMMA websites.

Can you find good deals on boats not featured by Yacht Brokers or purchased brand new from the boat dealer? Sure, but knowing about the manufacturer and whether or not the "model" you are looking at was "Certified" may be something you want to consider.

My recommedation is to have a Certified Marine Surveyor inspect the boat prior to purchase. It's the best $300 you may ever spend as a boater.

I have already contact www.altrionmarine.com and I think they have a good boat although its not new but its all in good condition and I am planning to purchase one they also recommend me to check out their car in www.xtremecars.com. But its more safe if I can see first all items not only in site.

I also doing fishing and I got also see great items in Altrion Marine and I avail 10% to 50 % discount on all items.

They have a good offer and much convenient shipping.
