New Vessel Pre-Acceptance Surveys:
WOULD YOU BUY A HOUSE WITHOUT A HOME INSPECTION?
DON’T BUY A BOAT WITHOUT A MARINE SURVEY!
There’s nothing like the smell of “new”!
You’ve planned and waited; or perhaps you stumbled over a deal that seems too good to be true.
Some sales people are great at service after the sale; Others are just great at service before the sale!
I’ve seen a lot of new homes with serious problems; does anyone remember Hurricane Andrew? Flaws in design and construction were uncovered that had been hidden for years. The trouble showed up well after the homes were “out of warranty”?
It’s better to know what you’re getting into BEFORE YOU BUY!
Defects in the vessel that avoid detection until well after the warranty period will become your responsibility when it’s time to sell.
Follow ups for “warranty work” are always a hassle- Even if the dealer is around to cover the repairs or “punch list”, it takes valuable time; usually yours! And many manufacturers will fight the dealer’s warranty claims. This does not encourage dealers to invest the effort to correct flaws that they think they won’t be paid for!
Before the closing, vessel defects are the dealer and/ or builder’s problem!
After the closing, they’re your problem!
Get her checked out first!
Make sure you know what you’re getting into!
