Our Fabio Portesan, the host of the series, just bought his second boat facing quite a few difficulties, so he thought he would put together an 8-part guide for us on “How to Buy a Used Boat.” We will guide you by showing what has been his personal experience and trying to make you avoid some mistakes that could cause you bad surprises.

Buying the used boat – First installment

In the first “Buying Your Used Boat” video: the first thing to consider before launching into the search for your boat is how you want to use it.

There are many different types of boats and each one is suitable for different activities, so it is important to have as good an idea as possible of how you will use your vessel to go to sea, so you don’t get lost in the large market for used boats. It would be impossible to list all the types of boats and their characteristics, but in this video we explain how to do it so that independently you can identify the model that might be right for you and then have a way to learn more about the specific boat.
