How To Determine A Boat Builder's Reputation

When choosing a boat, it’s about more than the look and style of the watercraft. You'll want to select a boat made by someone with a solid industry reputation for many reasons. Doing business with reputable boat manufacturers is about much more than how much it’s going to cost you in dollars and cents.

You'll also want to consider:

  • ease of doing business
  • quality of workmanship
  • good customer service reputation
  • availability of parts for servicing

Dealing with a local boat maker will make it easier for you to get replacement parts unless your brand is available globally or has global service centers. You'll also want to ensure that the manufacturer's reputation is solid so that you know what to expect in terms of customer service for problems or questions. Working with someone who authorizes dealers will also help you narrow down how to get your boat properly serviced.

Knowing a bit about various boat manufacturers helps when making a decision. When buying a used boat, you'll want to know whether or not the maker is still in business and if parts are still readily available. You'll also want to gain an understanding of who has made your boat so that you can identify your depreciation of your boat. A boat from a solid and recognized company will sell for a good percentage of it’s original purchase price due to reputation and brand recognition.

It’s a good idea to read reviews about boats when making your decision. Gaining the benefit of someone else’s experience can be valuable when choosing a brand or type of watercraft.
