When the time comes to sell a beloved boat, whether moving on to a newer or bigger model, or retiring your sea legs, maximizing the value of your boat is paramount. Experts share many ways to retain the value in a boat from the time of purchase. Here are a few suggestions.


  • Routine Maintenance: Like any high-performance machine, your boat requires regular upkeep to stay in prime condition. Routine maintenance checks should be scheduled with a qualified technician to inspect and service the crucial components of your vessel.
  • Regular Cleaning: Saltwater, sun exposure, and general wear and tear can take its toll on your boat’s appearance. Investing in professional cleaning services keeps your boat looking its best, but also helps preserve the resale value. Regular washing, waxing, and detailing can prevent corrosion, fading, and deterioration of exterior surfaces, ensuring that your vessel maintains its allure.
  • Document Service History: It’s essential to keep a detailed service history for your boat. A comprehensive history demonstrates that your vessel has been well cared for, instilling confidence in prospective buyers, helping to command a higher resale price when the time comes.
