Selling your boat is a big decision, and we know you may have hesitations about letting a boat dealer sell your boat for you. Here are some basic steps to follow when selling your boat:

  1. Determine if you are going to sell the boat yourself, or just work with a dealer.
  2. Make sure the boat looks and runs as good as possible.
  3. Research the price of similar boats taking make, model, size, and age into consideration.
  4. Decide on an asking price.
  5. Advertise your boat for sale.
  6. Show the boat and seal the deal.

If you understand how to sell your boat, but you really don’t want to invest all the necessary time and effort, you can always enlist the help of a professional dealer. Or, you could simply trade in your boat if you’re buying a new one from a dealer who accepts trades. Both options are easier than selling a boat yourself.

The amount of prep work you do to your boat will have a dramatic impact on how much someone’s willing to pay for it. Remember, no one “needs” to buy a boat and it’s usually an emotional purchase. So you’re hoping for someone to fall in love with the boat at first sight.

That means cleaning the boat inside and out, and washing and waxing every inch of it. Even clean out those areas that are out of sight and out of mind, like storage compartments under seats or the inside of a fishbox. If someone looks inside as they inspect the boat, you want them to see a neat, clean interior. Also, remove any extra gear that amounts to clutter. This will help the boat’s deck, cabin, and/or storage compartments seem larger at first glance.

Naturally, a potential buyer will also be interested in a boat that functions properly. Fix any broken or malfunctioning equipment or you can’t expect to get top dollar.

If you don’t have the time or energy to sell your boat on your own, we would love to take it off your hands for you. Greenville Marine & Sport Center is your local boat, motor, and trailer dealer, and we’ve been serving Pitt and Beaufort counties and Eastern North Carolina for 48 years. Our experienced sales and service staff would love to help you any way we can! 

How to Prepare Your Boat for Hurricane Season | Boat Dealers | Greenville NC | Rocky Mount NC

Unfortunately, hurricane season is upon us, and if you live in an area that will be affected by big storms, you’ll need to be prepared. This includes preparing your boat so that it will be safe regardless of the weather. At Greenville Marine, we sell amazing new and used boats, but we also want to help you get prepared for bad weather. Here are some best practices for preparing your boat for a hurricane:

  • Strap down your boats ashore. Boats left on shore tend to suffer less damage than boats left at docks during severe weather, but keep in mind that boats can still receive damage on shore too. If you use jackstands normally to support the hulls of your boat on land, they can be rocked back and forth from the wind, and this can cause damage over time. For even more peace of mind, store your boats on shore on high ground. This will limit the chance of your boat being underwater, even if it’s on land.
  • Store your boats at marinas with floating docks and tall pilings. These allow boats to rise and fall with surge without stretching and stressing lines. Sometimes boats on floating docks receive no damage at all from hurricanes, while boats on fixed docks nearby are badly damaged.
  • Make plans before a hurricane warning is posted. Don’t wait and risk the damage to your boat, especially if you live in a hurricane-prone area. Review your dock contract for language that may require you to take certain steps or to leave the marina when a hurricane may happen. Ask the staff at your marina what their plans are for severe weather.

We want you all to stay safe, and if there’s anything we can do to ensure your boat’s safety, please let us know. On another note, if you’re looking to buy a new or used boat, look no further!

Buying New vs. Used Boats | Boat Dealers | Greenville NC | Rocky Mount NC

Greenville Marine & Sport Center is your local boat, motor, and trailer dealer, and we’ve been serving Pitt and Beaufort counties and Eastern North Carolina for 46 years. We deal boat brands like Bayliner, G3 Boats, Cypress Cay Pontoons, May-Craft, Nautic Star, Robaldo, Tidewater, and Phoenix Bass Boats. We also sell Yamaha and Mercury engines. Our experienced sales and service staff would love to help you with a new or used boat purchase! 

How do you know when to buy a new boat versus a boat that’s been previously enjoyed? This can be a tough decision, but it depends all on you – the size boat you want, features, and of course, the price. In many cases, buyers will purchase a used boat over a new one. But this may not be the right choice for everyone in the market.

Why to buy a used boat: price! You will likely get a much better deal on a used boat than a new one. If you’re buying on a budget, this may be the right choice for you. Like a used car, much of the depreciation value of a used boat has already happened before you’re considering buying it. So what this means: a used boat will hold its value better than a new one.

The disadvantage of buying used is that you can’t always know exactly what you’re paying for. Make sure you’re cautious when buying a used boat, and do a thorough inspection before you buy.

Why to buy a new boat: you’ll get exactly what you want. When you buy used, you take what you can get. But when you buy new, you may have the option to customize your boat perfectly to your desires. New boats are clean and shouldn’t have any mechanical issues. For these reasons, this is why many buyers choose to purchase a new boat – for reliability and quality. Manufacturer’s warranties also help!

The disadvantage of buying new is the price. You’ll almost always pay more for a new boat than a relatively similar used one.

Don’t forget about our awesome outdoor shop, which is stocked with tackle, rods and reels, clothing, sunglasses, guns, hunting supplies, archery, and even an archery range. Stop by and check us out! Buy local – you won’t be disappointed!
