Next to your house, your boat may well be the biggest investment you ever make. Buying and owning a boat involves one baffling decision after another. Yet informed, impartial guidance is almost impossible to find--until now, that is.

This essential manual provides a method to the madness of boat buying and ownership, plotting a straight course through an ocean of confusion while it answers such questions as:

  • Why fractional ownership often makes sense
  • How to avoid buying a boat you'll never use
  • How to identify the Goldilocks boat--not too big, not too small
  • How to choose a powering option
  • How to negotiate the best deal on any boat-new or used
  • How to be your own surveyor, and why even a new boat may need a professional survey
  • Why you should finance your boat even if you have the cash, and where to find the best loans
  • How to calculate the total cost of ownership before you buy!
