"WHY YOU WANT TO BUY A FRESH WATER BOAT!!!
Three key factors cause the majority of the wear and tear on most boats. They are saltwater, sun and usage. (1) Inland boats sit in fresh water, not in corrosive salt water. (2) The further north you go, the less intense the sun, and hence, the less intense the amount of sun fade on the gelcoat and canvas. (3) Finally and most importantly is the length of the boating season. Most southern or coastal boats sit in the water year round, are used year round, and do not get pulled out from time to time in order to give their hulls the opportunity to dry out. A fresh water boat that is located inland, typically gets used 3 to 4 months of the year, then gets pulled and stored, either covered on the hard deck or inside stored in a heated facility. These boats have the least amount of exposure to these 3 harsh elements, and typically the further north you go, the nicer the boats. Our advice to our clients is always the same, "Buy a fresh water boat located in the northern section of the country."
Name and contact number of previous owner can be provided to serious buyers.
Boat has been in dry storage since September 2010.
