You can learn a great deal from others experiences. As my husband and I went through our sailboat buying experience I documented every step of our long and often times, frustrating journey. Tim has over 25 years experience as a commercial crab fisherman and journeyman ship fitter and I have a talent for researching and investigation from my former career as a real estate agent. Due to our back grounds in vessels and in sales, we think we have collected some very helpful information that you may never hear from the average sailboat buyer, or seller. In this book you will discover where we found much of our information and many other things we did along the way to successfully make our dream a reality. You will learn a little known purchasing strategy that could save you hundreds or even thousands of dollars. You will also discover how to contact the seller directly on any vessel you look at, a few creative ways of finding good deals if you are interested in a project boat, how to thoroughly inspect a vessel to locate major issues before you hire a surveyor, and much more! Our experiences were not always pleasant but we persevered and now we are living our dream. This little book is a small investment that could give you the winning edge as you look for and buy your vessel.
