Perks of Buying a New Boat

Are you thinking about buying a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks? When buying a boat, you may be debating between new or used. Here at Iguana Boat Sales, we can help you find the perfect boat for your wants and needs. If you're debating between the two, take a look at the perks of a new boat below. Don't forget to check out last week's blog with the perks of used to find out which is the best fit for your family.


You Know What You Get

When you buy a new boat, there is likely been no damage or repairs made, therefore you know the history. When you buy a used boat, you don't always know the full repair history of the boat. This may lead to undisclosed items that man need to be repaired in the near future, causing your investment to cost more than expected.

Warranty Options

Like a new car, many new boats have warranty options available. This warranty can help cover any unexpected mechanical failures that may occur on your new boat. While it's unlikely, sometimes new boats have a few flukes to work out and your warranty will cover this type of work.

Customize Your Order

You can get exactly what you want when you order a new boat. You can pick out the features you want and don't want in your new vessel. A custom order for your boat can ensure you have the exact features you are looking for in your new boat.

Enjoy the New

There's something glorious about a new item and a boat is no different! Enjoy the brand newness of your vessel when you buy a new boat. You get to break in your boat all on your own and enjoy it from the beginning of its life.

Now that you know all about the perks of buying a new boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to check out our current selection. Stop by Iguana Boat Sales or visit our website for information about our current stock. We look forward to helping you find the perfect vessel and keep your family entertained this summer!

Perks of Buying a Used Boat

Are you thinking about buying a boat at the Lake of the Ozarks? When you decide to buy, you may be debating whether to invest in a new boat or a used boat. Here at Iguana Boat Sales, we can help you find the perfect boat for your wants and needs. Whether it's new or used, we'd love to help you find a boat for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks. If you're debating between new and used, take a look at the perks of a used boat below AND stay tuned for next week's blog for the perks of buying new!


Perk #1: More Cost Effective

Buying a used bost is the most cost-effective way to get into boat ownership. Just like a car, a boat is much cheaper as a used option than brand new. The previous owner has likely taken the big impact of depreciation cost. This means you are buying the boat at a lower cost.

Perk #2: New Kinks Worked Out

Any initial issues in the boat or motor will likely have been found out by the first owner. Even though any off-the-line issues have likely been fixed. You may look into having a marine mechanic look over a used boat you're thinking of purchasing. They can give you a good idea of any work that's been done and what will need to be completed in the near future.

Perk #3: Test Drive Your Boat

A used boat isn't off in the factory being produced. You can likely take it for a test drive and get a good feel for the vessel. It can also come in hand as you move around the boat and see the unique features in person. Test driving a used boat is a good idea to make sure it's exactly what you're looking for!


Perk #4: Likely Available Right Away

Many used boats are available for purchase right away. This can give you that instant gratification of your purchase. You can buy your new boat and take it out on the lake on the same day! Instead of waiting for your boat to be designed and produced with a new boat, you can start reaping the benefits of your investment right away!

Now that you know all about the perks of buying a used boat at the Lake of the Ozarks, you're ready to check out our current selection. Stop by Iguana Boat Sales or visit our website for up to date information about our current stock. We look forward to helping you get out on the boat in style this summer!
